From night markets to luxury malls—here's where to shop in Malaysia

Don't you just love retail therapy? Reading the "delivered parcel" notification from your recent buy or seeing that red "50% off" sign outside your favorite store is such a mood booster.

Whether you are buying something that you need or gifting a person, shopping will surely make you feel better. 

Malaysia, where goods are relatively affordable, is running its Mega Sale Caravan from June 15–July 31, 2024. Leading stores all over the country will participate, with some promising up to 85% off in discounts.

If you are thinking about visiting the country and doing some shopping, allow us to be your guide so you don't have to do your research.


The first stop, is the Pavilion. Situated in the busy and colorful streets of Bukit Bintang, this mall, with around 700 outlets, can cater to everyone's needs. The prices of their goods range from high to low—there's Adidas, Lovisa, Li-Ning, Armani Beauty, Chloe, Celine, and more.

In front of this mall is the iconic Bloom of Hibiscus fountain, representing Malaysia's national flower and symbolizing opulence, passion, and progression.

Pavilion is located at 168, Jalan Bukit Bintang, Bukit Bintang, 55100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia



Are all the major purchases made during the first stop? Let's head to our second place: KKV! This 4-storey cute lifestyle store from China is full of cheap abubots! If you like stickers, stationery items, surprise boxes, and plushies, KKV is for you! Most of the items are priced at RM10 (P124) and below. 

KKV is located at 06, 108&110, Jalan Bukit Bintang, Bukit Bintang, 55100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Bukit Bintang


Looking for pasalubongs? Our next stop would be the street markets, and Bukit Bintang has many of them. They usually sell the typical keychains, refrigerator magnets, miniatures, and mugs for around RM 10–RM 20 (approximately P124–P249). We were able to purchase four pieces of magnets for only RM 10!

Harriston Boutique


If specialized local items are your thing, stop by the Harriston Boutique in the Malaysia Tourism Center. Here, they sell special high-quality chocolate, which is the sixth on the list of top items purchased by tourists, according to Tourism Malaysia. We went to try the ruby chocolate, the "fourth chocolate" after the dark, milk, and white chocolate types. It has a bit fruity taste and durian chocolate with real durian flesh inside. 

Harriston Boutique is located in Malaysia Tourism Centre, 139, Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA


Packed and ready to head to the airport, but want to make the last purchase to spend all your Malaysian ringgit? Our last destination: the Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA.

Situated near the airport, this place offers low-priced off-season goods. You can purchase branded shirts for as low as RM10 (P124). You can leave your bags in their luggage room and keep an eye on flight status with their very own flight tracker. They also have a money changer booth and shuttle services to and from the airport. 

Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA is located at Persiaran Komersial, 64000 Klia, Selangor, Malaysia
