Wipe the sweat off your forehead. Allow your body to relax. Tuck that stray lock of hair behind your ear and secure it. Exhale slowly. Ready?
How much ever you try, we’re sure you’re going to fail this one.
Because it is almost impossible to explore all of 1.37 million square feet of glamour, jazz , luxury and awesomeness in under 24 hours.
And this is just the beginning!
Challenge 01: Pavillion Kuala Lumpur Shopping Mall
Standing tall in the ultra hip destination of Bukit Bintang district, this mall is a sprawling 1.37 million square feet complex, comprising of three major arenas- a retail mall, an office block, and two residential towers.
Challenge 02: One Utama Shopping Mall
Popular for more reasons than just shopping, ‘One Utama shopping mall’ is a humongous property of over 5 million square feet divided into two wings: Old wing and the new wing.
Challenge 03: Berjaya Times Square
Known as being a one stop destination for all ages and linked to a five star hotel of the same name it comes with the mouth watering option of several food courts serving delectable and authentic cuisine as well as multinational delicacies.It also has a inhouse theme park!
Challenge 04: Gurney Plaza, Penang.
This waterfront property is spread over an unbelievable 858,000 sq ft and houses the very bosses of the fashion world- namely- Coach, Fossil, Versace, Dorothy Perkins. We wish we could go on, but we’re drooling!
Challenge 05: KOMTAR
This 65 storey high rise is famous not only for its prime location, ( it is situated on the junction between Jalang Penang and Jalan Magazine) but also for its 58th floor viewing deck which offers breathtaking views of the island.
And that’s not all. Besides these five challenges there are shopping heavens like The Low Yat plaza (a favourite of all techno geeks), Sunway pyramid (history lovers will love its Egyptian themed atmosphere), Starhill Gallery (a mecca for the ultimate luxury retail experience) and many such places which may seem as the stuff of dreams and lore - but are highly visited and hugely recommended in the dynamic destination of Malaysia.
Where else would you find such an eclectic mix of high end shopping and street markets, other than Malaysia? And where else would you find Malaysia packages with such bold options of shopping - we wonder.
