I visit Kuala Lumpur (KL), Malaysia, a minimum of six times a year to go shopping. Similar to Bangkok, where I currently reside, Kuala Lumpur boasts some of the cheapest shopping in Asia, making it a fashionista’s paradise for inexpensive apparel.
If you’re an inexpensive apparel shopper like me, don’t miss visiting these boutiques including Đồng Phục Đông Đô the next time you’re in Kuala Lumpur. They offer reasonably priced, stylish apparel of the highest caliber.
Sungei Wang Plaza
Sungei Wang Plaza is the first location I visit when I get to KL. Sungei Wang is a retail center in the Golden Triangle that is near to the Bukit Bintang monorail station and contains a large number of vendors and shops offering inexpensive clothing. I was able to find excellent prices on trendy t-shirts, skirts, shorts, formal blouses, and even work-appropriate shoes.
Since the mall is obviously geared towards younger customers, older ladies won’t find as much as younger women. But Sungei Wang is unrivaled for stylish apparel, accessories, and shoes. T-shirts start at 15 ringgit ($4.75 approximately), while casual trousers and skirts start at 20 ringgit ($6.25). Don’t overlook the 2-for-1 deals as well.
Petaling Street, Chinatown
The Petaling Street market opens daily at noon and closes after midnight. Shoppers who know where to look go here for inexpensive t-shirts, shirts, pants, belts, shoes, purses, and accessories.
Although many of the goods are knockoffs of designer labels, they are of high quality and reasonably priced. If you don’t like the phony apparel, you may also purchase items from some vendors that are authentic. I’ve purchased stylish designer t-shirts for $5 and handbags for as little as $6. Never forget to barter for the best deal. Owners of the stalls anticipate it.
Suria KLCC Mall
The renowned Petronas Towers are directly below the Suria KLCC Mall. You wouldn’t anticipate seeing cheap apparel at a high-end mall with largely designer stores, but you could be pleasantly surprised. On designer knickers, pants, coats and scarves, I’ve discovered prices that are incredible.
They are too expensive for me to purchase at regular price, but when the retailers start their deals, I’ve saved up to 70% on designer goods and have even purchased two t-shirts for the price of one when I bought the first.
Reject Shop is a series of retail locations that mostly sells off-season or discontinued apparel from designer retailers in the US, Australia, and Europe.
At Reject Shop, I’ve found some of the most affordable clothes I’ve ever seen. Designer trousers and jeans start at $7, designer t-shirts as little as $4 and even a lightweight denim jacket is only $15. Reject Shop is a fantastic location for older ladies or those who are larger sizes to go shopping since a lot of the clothing there is in European or American sizes, unlike some other stores in Kuala Lumpur that only sell clothing for women who are size 10 or smaller.
Melium Outlet, often known as MO Outlet, was one of my best discoveries in Kuala Lumpur. The city centre is only a short taxi ride away from this outlet store, but once there, a woman who lives for luxury apparel won’t know where to begin.
High-end designer apparel is the MO Outlet’s speciality, and they offer reductions of 40–70%. They include apparel from designers including Cole Haan, Ermenegildo Zegna, and Etienne Aigner.
