Shopping in Malaysia is more like an adventure and it truly is a shopping paradise. Malaysia as a country presents the true essence of Asia, 'Malaysia Truly Asia' and its cultural diversity is reflected in its shops too. It has something for every shopper from the Glossy high end shops to flea markets.
If you are a serious shopper, get yourself a big suitcase with plenty of room and a credit card which is buzzing and launch yourself into a shopping spree, the Malaysian capital beckons you with its vast offerings. The list of items to shop is many. Some items you could shop for includes pewter items, designer jewellery, electronics, footwear, watches, optical items and some high quality fabrics. But the most unique product of Malaysia is the wonderful handicrafts and the intricate silver, brass items and pottery. The best places for you to buy fashion clothing in Malaysia are Kuala Lumpur, Langkawi and Penang. But if you are looking for traditional products, then you should travel to Malacca and the further East Coast. While Kuala Lumpur has many branded shops and multi-story shopping malls like One Utama, the Berjaya Times Square, Midvalley Megamall, and The Pavillion.
Here you can purchase all sorts of items in a single place. Penang had once been known as the number one tax heaven in Malaysia. But in recent years, it has lost this position to Langkawi, where Langkawi is today the hub for local and international duty free goods.
