    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.

1 Utama is one of the Klang Valley’s most popular shopping centres. An expansive mall in Bandar Utama (a small suburb just off the Lebuhraya Damansara-Puchong), it is about 30 minutes away from KL city centre and has over 650 stores and a variety of restaurants and entertainment outlets. Spread across five million-sqft, it is locally known as 1U and is divided into two wings: the Old Wing and New Wing. Recently the Old Wing was given a thorough revamp that saw the addition of new stores, a glossy and sleek façade plus there is even a third-floor entertainment zone (similar to the one on the New Wing) in the works.

Amcorp Mall

Located near an A & W fast-food outlet on Persiaran Barat, just off Jalan Timur, is the Amcorp Mall. Although not as fancy as its more contemporary counterparts, this mall has its legions of regular and loyal patrons who love to come here for its sizeable offerings of quirky and specialty shops.

During the weekends, the whole of its ground floor comes alive with its flea market, arguably one of the most talked-about in the country. Said to be the very first flea market in Malaysia, it showcases a wide range of items from old LP records to antique collectables.

  • Highlights: Ultimate Toys, Ka Fei Dian, Creative Cottage, Antiques and Collectibles
  • Opening Hours: Daily, 10:00 – 22:00

If you are tired of donning fashion items that are two or three seasons too late, then head to F Block. Doing roaring trade in reasonably priced, good quality, bold and bight apparel and accessories, F Block is one of our favourite local boutiques, offering an unfailingly cool collection of clothes, shoes and jewellery in step with the current season’s fashion styles. Founded in 2007, the label has several stores in KL, Selangor, and Malacca. We like the welcoming Sunway Giza store – it is a little bigger than its counterparts in KL and as a result carries a wider selection of items and sizes. Read More...

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.

Paradigm Mall is a new suburban mall with over 100 fashion stores, a nine-screen movie theatre, gym, games arcade and more than 50 restaurants. The layout is pretty similar to malls in the Golden Triangle area (like Pavilion KL and Suria KLCC), but that’s where the resemblance ends. Shopping is great here: Paradigm Mall has mid-market international brands like Dorothy Perkins and Springfield, and local boutiques like Kitschen, Nichii, Syarakim and Tangoo. But it is the indoor activities that make it unique – you can catch a movie, sweat it out at the gym, play a silly round of foosball with your friends at the arcade, enjoy a ticklish fish spa or even just sit down and coo at the cute, furry animals at the pet store.
