Lot 10, Kuala Lumpur
The only two stores that I find worth visiting are Zara and H&M other than that nothing special. The New Wave Hair & Beauty Salon at the fourth floor is overpriced. Not too much dinning options.
I visited the mall twice and it's always empty!
In my opinion going there is a waste of time, especially that Pavilion Mall is nearby.
Lot 10 has a very striking green facade and is located in Bukit Bintang area.
This is a huge shopping centre where you can find branded goods, designer labels.
Isetan is their anchor tenant.
There is money changer with good rates so you could change some cash for your shopping spree.
Restaurants and coffee outlets can be found here too.
On a too hot day or a big rain day, you can always spend the day at Lot 10, situated within central Kuala Lumpur’s hottest shopping and entertainment district, Bintang Walk.
Lot 10, which is the brightly painted green monolith is linked to Sungei Wang Plaza by an overhead bridge.
What to buy: Hip clothes and club wear, art quality books, music, jewelry, watches can be found at lot 10. The Isetan department store is the mall's main department store.
What to pay: The skys the limit.
Mostly suitable for those wishing to purchase women's clothes but there are many other shops including a newsagents, accessories shops, cafes, places to buy DVDs, VCDs and CDs at very cheap prices (good quality though). You can easily walk across the road (special overhead walkway) to another mall so it makes for a good day out shopping. It is easy to get taxis to and from here, although it can get quite busy and the multi-storey car park fills up by around 1.
What to buy: - clothing
- VCDs/DVDs (it's better to buy VCDs as they are cheaper and of the same quality)
- magazines, newspapers etc
- food and drink
What to pay: Mostly quite cheap here, although it depends what you want to buy
More upscale than BB Plaza and Sungei Wang. Here you can find clothes (Guess was my favourite), cosmetics, jewelry and for example a Manchester United fan store.
They have nice cafes plus an excellent food court in the basement.
Lot 10 is a more fancy mall with the more expensive labels like CK, Esprit etc.
On the 3rd floor you can find all the computer and electronic stuff you can emagine. This is the cheapest place for electronics.
What to buy: designer-label clothes
What to pay: Always bargain!
Lot 10 is the first upmarket shopping centre in KL that was build in the late 1980s (when Malaysian economy was started to boom then). Hence, not suprising then that its interior is lavishly styled. It was renovated and upgraded in the 1990s to be on par with other newer upmarket shopping centres in KL.
Japanese departmental store Isetan is its anchor tenant. Other outlets in the mall includes MUFC boutique, Guess boutique, Bodyshop, The Hour Glass, Royal Selangor, Dome Cafe, Foto Shangri-la, Standard Chartered financial spa, San Francisco Coffee, Cafe Societe, Delifrance, Page One etc. It also has a foodcourt at the lower ground floor.
If shopping is not your forte, you can always window shopping at the mall or take a stroll at Bintang Walk within the mall's vicinity.
What to buy: Branded goods.
Now, we shall go to Lot 10; Supposed to be a trendy shopping mall situated in Bukit Bintang, a swanky area in KL.
Well, swanky or not, I don't really care because this is not really my area that I like to hangout at...
You can see trendy people around this area, with lots of shopping guidances, according to the guidebooks, of course...
What to buy: Almost everything that would make you feel trendy....TRY to bargain ! You would get a reply like "Fixed Prices..."; well, move to somewhere else !
Well, just to show you how 'swank' this complex is, I took some photos.
For me, enough to walk on every floor, window-shopping....Here, we call this as 'LOOK-SEE, LOOK-SEE'...meaning just looking & seeing, not buying anything ! Ha !...
Just to show that swanky places like this is not really everybody's game ! THERE'S HARDLY ANYBODY IN IT !...Only a walking couple; Well, during the weekends, you could see more walking couples of course !
Some Malaysian like to bring their visiting friends to Lot 10, not me ! To show-off or what...?
I shall bring them to Chinatown !
On the ground floor of Lot 10, normally there would be some kind of fairs. Car fairs, make-up fairs, clothes fairs....on that day I was there, there was a sort of culture fair.
Probably cultures from all over South East Asia as I could see some stuffs normally available in Thailand, Vietnam & Indonesia...
YES, the items displayed are for sale. The prices ? Ho-hum...
What to pay: BARGAIN !...Or just browse through around.
Bukit Bintang(StarHill) is KL's most popular shopping area. Great place for people watching or shopping. There are a few shopping complex in this area. If you are looking for designer labels, head for StarHill/ Lot 10, if its cheap souvenier and nice affordable clothes, go to Sungai Wang.
What to buy: Some clothes are much cheaper here. Sungai Wang and Imbi Plaza is a great place to buy electrical items(discman, latest handphones, camera). If you shop in those little booths in the complex, remember to bargain, there might be a `second` cheaper price. Dont over do it though, you cant bargain that much from the original price( not like in hongkong and china where the `second` price goes as low as 50%)
I think this department store is not very new but it'sokey to check out some stuff. I remember we checked out an electronic store in the 3rd floor and the name is Shangrila(if I'm not mistaken) has a very friendly staff, the guy even give us some pointers about cameras and etc. They also have a weekly promotions in the ground floor where you can test whatever they have..
What to buy: Branded items.
What to pay: I didn't buy a thing,actually.
All sorts of shops, expensive,
What to buy: Go to Lot 10 shopping centre and buy lots of goodies!
Luckily when we were there in August, the whole country were having the huge sales, so I got a lot of bargain, some up to 50% off!
Linked to Bukit Bintang Monorail Station and Sungei Wang Plaza by an overhead bridge. Lot 10 offers an up market and wide selection of fashion wear. It has Isetan as anchor tenant.
