Petaling Jaya Shopping

Shopping in Petaling Jaya

Just 25 minutes from the heart of Kuala Lumpur, Petaling Jaya is famous for shopping with more than 12 major malls within its retail landscape – that’s pretty impressive for an area less than half the size of KL. Well connected by light rail transit (LRT) train links, the Petaling Jaya shopping scene certainly takes it to an altogether different level. Here, you will find 1 Utama, the world’s fifth largest mall, home to over 650 stores, with brands like Bershka, Morgan de Toii and Coach represented. Fun for the whole family, there is an indoor rock climbing gym, the largest rooftop garden in Southeast Asia, a gaming arcade, 13-screen theatre, and 36-lane bowling alley in this centre.

A busy shopping neighbourhood, if that is not enough the fun of shopping in Petaling Jaya doesn’t stop there. About 30 minutes from KL is the Egyptian-themed Sunway Pyramid mall in Bandar Sunway, which is set next door to a water theme park, and houses an indoor ice skating rink. Meanwhile, both Amcorp Mall, and The Curve in Kota Damansara have seriously awesome weekend outdoor flea markets, where you can find antique furniture, cool collectibles and even vintage finds.

Ikea and Ikano Power Centre (IPC)

Swedish furniture superstore Ikea is certainly a popular fixture in PJ’s shopping scene – if you visit during the weekends, expect to encounter massive crowds and to wait in line for at least 20 minutes when purchasing anything. Those negative factors aside, it is the one of the best places to obtain fashionable, great value household merchandise like bookshelves, sofas and lighting fixtures. They have an onsite restaurant which serves up Ikea’s iconic Swedish meatballs in specialty gravy – it is a popular afternoon lunch and dinner spot and finding a table can be difficult, but the food is well worth the bustle.

Directly connected via a ground floor tunnel link is Ikano Power Centre next door, a neighbourhood mall with Australian electrical giant Harvey Norman as its anchor tenant and plenty of indie boutiques to keep serious shoppers occupied perusing its racks. Meanwhile, IPC is accessible to The Curve and e@Curve through a first floor connection bridge.
