If you are shopping for electronics, Malaysia is a great destination for buying products like cameras, mobile phones, MP3 players, DVD players, laptops and even electronic household items.

In the capital city of Kuala Lumpur, the heart of Malaysia, you will be greeted everywhere by huge hoardings, posters and loudspeakers making announcements about ongoing sales. From Batik fabric, Pewter Ware and yummy Asian snacks to branded clothes and electronics, there is plenty you can take back home from KL. The main shopping district in Kuala Lumpur is known as Bukit Bintang (or, the Golden Triangle). It has its very own rail system and there are many shopping options within walking distance.

Pavillion is one of the most popular stores in Kuala Lumpur with 8 levels of shopping. Each level caters to a different category of goods and there is plenty to choose from. If you love designer wear, Lot 10 which has over 100 designer outlets from the likes of Versace, Zara, Aigner and Debenhams, over five levels is a must-visit. Lot 10 also has many stalls serving delectable authentic “street” food in a mall ambience. Other major shopping destinations in Kuala Lumpur include the Suria KLCC shopping complex, Petaling Jaya, the Central Market, China Town and Little India. Another, not-to-miss shopping experience is the ‘Pasar Malam’ or neighbourhood night market! There is also another breathtaking shopping option – stores located in the Petronas Tower complex!

The mega sale Carnival is by no means restricted to Kuala Lumpur. Infact, “1Malaysia” mega sale carnival seeks to unite people and institutions across Malaysia and give a much needed momentum to the country’s economy. There are options galore everywhere and it is impossible to cover every location.

After Kuala Lumpur, Penang is another major centre for indulging in retail therapy. Penang has a great mix of huge shopping walls and abundant street markets. In Penang, wandering of a nook or alley could lead you to some amazing finds like artefacts, home decor items, crafts and exotic fabrics. Queens Bay Mall, Gurney Plaza, Georgetown and the vibrant Little Penang street Market are some of the most popular shopping havens in Penang.
