Best things to buy in Kuala Lumpur0
When deciding what to buy in Kuala Lumpur, homemade handicrafts come to mind first but that’s not all that should be on your KL shopping list. While the city’s shopping scene has a habit of making us splash our cash on designer labels, the latest electronics are another good reason to turn into a big spender in KL. Reduced prices are the norm and little extras are usually thrown in to sweeten the deal, making it one of the best things to buy in Kuala Lumpur.
The list of Kuala Lumpur must-buys do not stop there: for thrifty fashionistas, famous high end reproduction handbags, shoes and sunglasses at the Petaling Street Night Market are serious must-haves. If you would like to inject your wardrobe back home with a little local culture, we recommend the batik prints at Central Market. While ‘I Love Kuala Lumpur’ T-shirts are cheap, unfussy souvenirs for acquaintances, we recommend grabbing some pretty special local pewter or handcrafted woodwork for friends and family whom you want to impress. Whatever souvenirs you buy in Kuala Lumpur, you are in for a fun, whimsical experience, haggling for cheap bargains and KL-themed products made right here in the city.
