Touted as the ‘mother of all sales’, the Malaysia Mega Sale Carnival is one of the nation’s twice yearly shopping extravaganzas that unleashes a flood of deals, bargains, promotions and events across the entire country. The mid-year sale runs from 16 June to 31 August and is undoubtedly the best time to indulge in retail therapy at any of the sprawling malls that mark Malaysia as one of the world’s premiere shopping destinations.
Among the line-up of these malls are three of the world’s largest with 1 Utama, Sunway Pyramid and Berjaya Times Square, clocking in at an estimated 13 million square foot of combined floor space. Visitors can browse through literally thousands of retail outlets in these behemoths, from haute couture to indie fashion and everything in between.
Make sure to also visit other retail havens under the Sunway umbrella including Sunway Velocity Mall and Sunway Putra Mall – each have become iconic shopping destinations that offer a diverse range of retail, dining, lifestyle and entertainment.
Kuala Lumpur has been consistently rated as one of the best cities in the world to shop in, falling perfectly in line with the trend that travellers are increasingly choosing their next holiday destination based on shopping opportunities.
Those looking for luxury items and the height fashion, The Melium Group’s extensive portfolio includes some of the nation’s most fashion forward outlets including Aigner, Hackett London, Tod’s and Farah Khan among others. These can be found at malls such as Genting Highlands Premium Outlets, Pavilion KL, and Suria KLCC. Don’t forget to present your Tourist Privilege Card to get access to more exclusive discounts.
Meanwhile, Plaza Low Yat is the capital’s beacon for ICT and electronics, with seven floors boasting everything from ICT Concept stores and repair centres to a whole range of lifestyle shops and dining.
