Tips on shopping in KL

Spent the August long weekend in Kuala Lumpur with my college friends! Originally, our main objective was to go to Legoland. Once we girls got there, we just had to go shopping!

Shopping malls we went to:
  1. Fahrenheit 88
  2. Lot 10
  3. Sungei Wang
  4. Berjaya Times Square (BTS)
  5. Central Market
Bukit Bintang is shopping paradise! Malls are all lined by next to each other.

For bazaar clothes, go to Sungei Wang and BTS. Sung Wei is like Greenhills while BTS is like Market Market.

Sungei Wang is located at Jalan Bukit Bintang, Bukit Bintang, 55100 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This is right across from Lot 10.

Berjaya Times Square (BTS) can be found in 1, Jalan Imbi, 55100 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

For high end and branded items, check out Pavilion.

Pavilion is right across Sephora at Star Gallery

Fahrenheit 88 has boutique stores and an outlet store. Lot 10 is quite small but you can find H&M and Zara here.

Fahrenheit 88 can be found between Sephora at Star Gallery and Lot 10. 179, Jalan Bukit Bintang, 55100 Kuala Lumpur, WP Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Lot 10 is between Fahrenheit 88 and Sungei Wang. 50, Jalan Bukit Bintang, Bukit Bintang, 55100 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

If you're looking for locally made items, check out Central Market. But never buy packs of instant coffee and milk tea. Don't get blinded by the buy 3 for RM50. Go to the grocery store cos they sell those for RM12 only!

Don't shop all in one day. Sungei Wang and BTS will already consume one whole day. There are a lot of stores to check out here.

Some stores don't allow you to try the clothes on which makes shopping faster but a bit tricky if you are not sure what style looks good on you.

Not much of a make up fan, but for those who are, you may want to check out Sephora at Star Gallery. (I prefer going to Myeongdong in Seoul, South Korea, aka make up heaven!)

Heard about Beryl's Chocolate and planning to buy some to bring home? You can find these in bulk at Central Market. But if you plan to try out different varieties, you may want to buy at KLIA2 instead. It's much cheaper cos there's no more GST included.

On your way to the airport, taxi drivers also offer to bring you to buy chocolates. Not sure if it's at the Beryl's Chocolate Kingdom. You might find all the varieties of Beryl's chocolate there.

We also visited Johor Premium Outlet Store, and it sure was worth the visit! Since it's an outlet store, there were a lot of discounts and promos!

If you plan to go on a shopping spree in KL, book your flight some time between June and August, in time for their 1Malaysia Mega Sale Carnival! Lots of promos await ;)
