Shopping in Kuala Lumpur

Rummage through sari silks, rugs and spice stalls in the heady side-streets of Little India before checking out Sogo's vast range of designer perfumes, toys, home furnishings and electronics. Under red lanterns and bird cages, shop for herbs and ancient medicines in colourful Chinatown, home to the stylish emporium, Peter Hoe Beyond. A visit to KL's bustling Central Market is a must to witness bazaar-style haggling at its best.
