Here is a variety of shopping malls here in KL and they all great. The Bukit Bintang area is always busy as they have a large variety of shopping malls which all close late. Some of the shops you can go and bargain with some of the people there so don`t just accept the price on the goods you might just get a discount if you ask , you`ll no where and where not to bargain depending on the store. There is LOT 10 , BB PLaza , Low Yat and Time Square just to name a few. Time Square is huge I must tell you. Its really something. I think it would take you a very long time to visit all the stores there. What I like about the mall is that it got a theme park inside the mall with a rollercoster and other rides. Malaysia is like shoppers Paradise ;0P
What to buy: Anything , there is a large variety of things.
What to pay: Don`t forget to Bargain where you can. I does`nt hurt to try ;0)

Upon arrival at Bukit Bintang Mall, i found myself in a mass of people, in a smallish looking shopping centre. I was a woman on a mission wanting to buy new shoes (ladies like shoes) and i found them in this shop right near the door. Very reasnably priced as well, with a wide range of styles with lots of helpful assitants rather than the ones who follow you around the shop, putting you off purchasing anything!
What to buy: SHOES!!
What to pay: i bought mine for about 15RM, which isnt bad at all.....

Imbi Plaza is the palce to be if you wnat to shop for IT stuff in KL. It has been established long before Low Yat Plaza come into the picture. Just take note that some of the stuff on sale here are pirated stuff.
There is nothing in KL that is not available in Sungei Wang. It is a shopper's haven. it is colourful and vibrant with people busting around at all hours of the day. They have a food court where you can try some local food. The claypot tom yam noodle soup is very good.
What to buy: arts and craft from the borneo sarawak region
electronics and mobile phones
TAILORED SUITS, SHIRTS AND CHEAP ALTERATIONS
The shop has lots of material, I got too confused actually and didn't get anything made as I couldn't decide on what material or what style! So my best advice is to research what you want made before you get there. Otherwise you'll be like me buying all the Vogue magazines and trying to pick something.
What to buy: T.C Wong a lovely older Chinese gentleman will probably greet you as you walk through the door.
You can get a tailor made suit for MYR600-1500 depending on your choice of fabric. David got a beautiful suit made for 1060 RM as he picked a heavier more expensive material. So depending on the material you pick determines the price.
T.C also altered 3 pairs of my trousers for about 20 RM per alteration - had to get them taken in.
What to pay: 600RM upwards per suit
20RM per alteration for trousers

I really recommend to look for clothes and shoes.
What to pay: The range is of course widespread, you can get a top or shirt for around 10 USD, but you can also spend 30 or 50 USD! The same applies for shoes, I normally do not spend more than 15-20 USD for shoes.
