List of Shoppers Paradises in Petaling Jaya -From international brands to indie stores

Petaling Jaya or PJ is a major Malaysian City that is speedily growing into one of the top shopping destinations in the country and here is a list of shopping hubs you must not miss.


Utama Shopping Centre

Are you ready to venture out of your hotels in Petaling Jaya? Ranking fourth on the list of largest malls in the world, 1 Utama Shopping Centre is a must not be missed the place when you are in town. Owning an impressive 5 million square feet, this giant mall is divided into two wings, the old and new wing. More than 650 shops, restaurants, and entertainments outlets can be found inside this shopaholic's wonder land, including brands like Coach, Bershka, and Morgan de Toii. The mall is also a Wi-Fi zone, so if you have any work or internet browsing to catch up on, seat yourself at one of the cafes inside the mall and get your day going with a cup of coffee.


The Curve

This bright yellow and blue building rises high and stands tall in the skyline of the vicinity. The Curve is home to more than 250 shops, with outdoor dining spaces, weekly flea markets, and nonretail activities. The weekly flea market is a budget shopper's dream come true and has everything from cheap fashion finds to designer garbs and hobby specific curiosities.


Tropicana City Mall

In operation since 2008, this mall has 3 floors and is quite a recent addition to the shopping hub of PJ. In here, you can find the usual US chain stores and international brands along with a number of gorgeous indie boutiques like the Mirrorcle and Mazza Korean Collection. Located in an apt place, this is just a walk away if you're staying at a city hotel like Somerset Damansara UPtown Petaling Jaya. Apart from shopping, there are restaurants, pubs, gaming areas and cinemas inside the mall, but the downside is that the place shuts down at 10pm.


IKEA and Ikano Power Centre

IKEA is a name that is known throughout the world for Swedish furniture and this store is a prominent fixture in the shopping hub in Petaling Jaya. If you can, avoid the weekends as you will encounter massive crowds and might end up standing in lines for hours. The weekdays are less hectic and let you browse in leisure without being rushed. The Ikano Power Centre is connected to the IKEA store through a tunnel on the ground floor and it's a great place to get your electronics shopping done.


Sunway Pyramid

This shopping centre in Klang Valley is themed and is the only mall in Malaysia that comes with a skating rink. Since it was opened in 1997, it has some of the old world vibes to it, and though some call it tacky, and others say it is sophisticated, this mall attracts all types of visitors throughout the year.
