If you love to shop, then Kuala Lumpur is the place to be. Boasting many upscale shopping centres, clothing stores, gift and accessory retailers and electronics stores, days could be spent exploring the shops alone. Get around the city in climate controlled comfort as you walk from one high-end shopping centre to the next. Luxury department stores and upscale food courts are all features along this convenient city link which extends all the way to the premium Suria KLCC shopping mall near Petronas Tower. Factory outlets and markets are also featured in various areas of the city. One popular factory store is Dong-A-Batik near Jalan Imbi.
While shopping in Penang and Kota Kinabalu and other holiday resort areas doesn't match KL's selection for luxury stores and premium goods, they do provide a wide variety of handmade crafts and specialty items. Small clothing boutiques, book shops and jewellery stores are also common in the centre town.
