KL is an entertaining city
If we had to pinpoint the cities in the world that we think deliver the best events in Kuala Lumpur
- then we would most likely disagree. This is because every destination is unique and we all look for different events in Kuala Lumpur
. If we check on Google, then its easy to find the best 10 to 15 events in every city. Secondly, for a city to be an exciting destination, it needs to have variety of activities and things to do. Here, Kuala Lumpur certainly does not disappoint. Opportunities are aplenty, shopping malls are everywhere, night activities are all around and many of them are absolutely exciting things to be part of.
What makes a city exciting
Why does Kuala Lumpur stand-out? What is it that people are really looking for? Are they looking for the best events in Kuala Lumpur
? People need to be able to get around KL easily and also be able to pin-point where the many events in our city take place. They can do this by using our website KL100. The city has beauty, quality of window displays, shop décor, friendliness and competence of service staff. Including top dining and accommodation options. It is also the number of available brands, the range of shopping categories, the quantity of upscale shops and the affordable prices that really just says-it-all. And now it also has a comprehensive event calendar called KL100. It will help both locals and visitors to easily identify the best things to do in town. But also the best things to try!
KL does not really have the best quality of public transportation, but it does provide affordability. There is a generous offering of taxi-options around especially using the latest booking systems by phone. Transport time might be questionable for most people here, but in fact traffic here is better than in most big cities.
Shopping makes great things to do
Maybe sometimes ‘Bigger’ really is better. KL's claim to be a leading shopping destination comes from its winning combination of high quality shopping. It certainly seems to be the prevailing shopper's ethic in Kuala Lumpur, because 3 of the world's 10 largest malls are in KL. In Malaysia we have a real shopping mall mentality, here you can literally find everything in 1 mall and you can take the whole day going thru it. Some of these malls are 1-day trips and you can literally shop till you drop.
Is shopping entertainment
Malaysia has been grooming herself to be synonymous with shopping, but the experience in KL is not only about the largest shopping malls in the world, the glamour and the glitz. In Kuala Lumpur, we also have smaller bazaars to visit. Actually, these bazaars hold long tradition in most of Asia and there is nothing like it in the West. It is easy to spend an entire day in a single bazaar, so come prepared.
Shopping in Kuala Lumpur is one of travel's greatest pleasures! Kuala Lumpur alone has 66 shopping malls and it is the retail and fashion hub for Malaysia. Goods are available in every price bracket.
KLCC & Bukit Bintang area
Suria KLCC is one of Malaysia's premier shopping destinations due to its location beneath the Petronas Twin Towers. Kuala Lumpur's premier shopping district, the Bukit Bintang area in the Golden Triangle, resembles Tokyo's Ginza, New York's Fifth Avenue and Singapore's Orchard Road. It has the highest concentration of shopping outlets in Kuala Lumpur, which cater to varying budgets. Bukit Bintang, which is part of the Kuala Lumpur's Golden Triangle, houses various cafes, alfresco (open air) dining outlets and shopping complexes. Pavilion Kuala Lumpur is a recent addition to the cluster of shopping malls in this area and houses a wide range of international retail brands in an ultra-modern complex.
The Bangsar and Midvalley areas are home to some of the best shopping malls in Kuala Lumpur. Namely the MidValley Megamall and the adjacent upmarket The Gardens. But also the more cozy Bangsar Village and Bangsar Shopping Centre in Bangsar.
The Damansara area is one of the high concentration of shopping outlets in Kuala Lumpur. It houses various shopping malls. The Curve, e@Curve, Ikano Power Center, IKEA, Cathay Multi Screen Cinemas, Courts Megastore, NiuXehSui Ara Damansara and 1 Utama (one of the largest shopping centers in Malaysia).
There are also many shopping malls in the neighbouring cities of Petaling Jaya and Subang Jaya. Malls such as Sunway Pyramid Megamall (build under a live-sized pyramid) in Petaling Jaya are very nicely designed. It is worth making the trip down to have a look even if you don't plan to buy anything.
There is something for everybody
Despite the onslaught of malls, Kuala Lumpur still offers some Asian tradition with traditional shopping streets and markets. The best area for such shopping is Chinatown in the City Centre. This district is also the best place to hunt for souvenirs. Especially in the Central Market, an art and craft market called Pasar Seni in Malay. Little India offers various fabrics imported from countries like Indonesia, India and China, while some are locally produced. Indonesian traditional batik and songket are traditional fabric commonly found in Central Market. For greater satisfaction choose the handmade baju kurungs or kebayas (the traditional Malay blouse). For peace of mind, buy from the bigger stores. Some Thai handicrafts are also sold here, alongside handmade Malaysian wooden souvenirs.
