Ikea, Kuala Lumpur
The One and Only IKEA Furniture Store in the whole of Malaysia...very interesting economic and cultural difference between Singapore and Malaysia as commented by my dear lady. Singapore is so small and it has not one but TWO IKEA stores whereas Malaysia is so big but it has only ONE IKEA store. Originally located at One Utama, it has since shifted to its own huge warehouse-like building next door at Mutiara Damansara.
KLs IKEA is the Largest IKEA store in all South Asia (it is claimed). If you ask any Taxi Driver from Main KL, his typical answer will be 'very far! expensive!' to go there by Taxi. Which is probably true. I searched in-vain to find a way to get to IKEA by public transport, but couldnt find anything. Luckily I discovered on my own how to travel to IKEA by public transport and save some ringits! First thing I thought was to share bthis knowledge with fellow travellers here!
Take the LRT train to Kelana Jaya Station (u can catch it from Central or KLCC if u need to switch trains). At the bus-stop at the bottom of the KelanaJaya station, there is a FREE shuttle service to IKEA. The buses arrive every 'bottom' of the hour, meaning 30 minutes past the hour. The buses are for 'IKANO Power Mall' which is right next to IKEA, and serve IKEA too. Remember this transport is FREE and runs till night 9:30 i think. Only breaks are for lunch and dinner. Happy Shopping.
