With more than eight major shopping malls found in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, capital of Malaysia, it comes as no surprise as to why many shopaholics have shifted to KL as their shopping destination.

Pavillion Kuala Lumpur Shopping Mall

This is well known as the shopping hotspot of Kuala Lumpur. The gigantic glitzy shopping mall prominently stands out from the rest of the city's mallscape occupying prime real estate along Jalan Bukit Bintang. Pavillion Kuala Lumpur Mall has three major sections which are the retail mall, office block and two residential towers. The mall is a classic example of how extravagant a mall can be in maintaining the fast moving trend of the city's fashionistas. The humongous 1.37 million sqft white marble laid complex is a combination of both indoor and outdoor shopping venues resembling an oversized Grecian temple with postmodern pillars housing over 450 departmental stores. It offers plenty of trendy restaurants for dining and snacking with big-box retailers providing access to both international and local designer labels and local speciality retailers.

This high-end shopping mall consisting of seven storeys offers the best luxury retail experience. The unique architectural design of the structure makes it a landmark and an iconic mall in KL that can be conveniently reached if you are staying at a hotel in Kuala Lumpur such as Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral.
