Why Sungei Wang Plaza is special ?
The seven-storey Sungei Wang is one of Kuala Lumpur’s most instantly recognizable shopping centres. Locals hail it as one of the cheapest places for retail therapy while foreigners say that it’s a convenient pit stop in the city’s Golden Triangle quadrant.
This 1.2 million sqft complex is well known for amassing an assortment of stores under one roof. The centre of the mall’s lower ground floor plays host to a large concourse in which a stage is occasionally set up to host live performances: around this open space are a selection of local designer clothing boutiques that specialise in young and funky fashion styles. Besides that, there are shops specialising in computers, cell phones and accessories such as chargers, casings and batteries.
What to explore at Sungei Wang Plaza?
Escalators lead to the ground floor where dozens more kiosks crowded together retail hand phones and their trimmings while more clothing and women’s costume jewellery stores encircle them in permanent store lots.
The rest of the mall houses a variety of stores featuring products such as soft toys, GAMES, watches, books, lifestyle items and entertainment. One of the city’s most famous tattoo parlours, Star Tattoo Studio, is located in the third floor. Also on the third floor is a designated IT zone (IT @ Sungei Wang) where you’ll find computers, IT hardware and software.
Divided into coloured zones the mall is easy to navigate and is one of the few places to get good deals on ladies apparel in KL. Dresses, tops, pants, skirts and more cost less than RM100 and besides Low Yat Plaza, Sungei Wang is also the best places for computer accessories.
The sixth floor plays host to the T-Zone (also known as the Trendy Zone on The roof) – here you’ll find clothing stores catering to teenage fashion sense.
Connecting the mall to the main boulevard is Fiesta Street which is a new sidewalk with a selection of restaurants that serve Italian, American, Chinese, South African and Asian fare. In typical mall fashion, fast food outlets are in abundance within the complex

Tips for you
Shopping Heaven... for Mobiles and cheap chinese clothes..
Shopping heaven for me! V cheap and up to date. Love love love. A bit crowded and beware of pickpockets. I love to buy hair products here also
Past visits have always been entertaining and productive due to the numerous shops and semi market atmosphere. A major clean up is underway and remains to be seen where the landlord takes the development. The Pavillion is upmarket and flash and maybe the new persona will be a giant step towards ritz rather than bargain hunting. The little jewellry stalls are still interesting and aftermarket DVDs have be in the main cleaned out. Maybe by year's end the place will be overhauled but presently it is not very exciting. In the basement is a significant food supermarket which will have major appeal for tourists. Those who are in the vicinity should still make a visit and check out progress as the Plaza was once first class. In any case the Pavillion and its spectacular basement foodcourt is only a short walk away.
You won't find your designer gear here but if it's bargains you are looking for this is the place, with great prices on shoes, and clothes, beauty products and phone covers. I had a mani and pedi done here at less than half the price I pay in perth.
Looking for a bargain? While most malls won't allow haggling prices, you may come across a better price, or a more unusual item here.
