  4. I travel to KL for work about 2x/year...the KLCC mall is a Huge shopping mall next to the Petronas Towers. There are other shopping malls there too...can't remember the name but there's Gucci, Prada and some other stores there too. There are a few great markets too.

    Good exchange rate for the US $ (well, at least last time I was there in August). Don't know what your budget is but I stay at the Mandarin Oriental hotel (OMG, to die for!!) next to KLCC/Petronas or the Shangri-La (within walking distance to KLCC and other restaurants/clubs. Near the train line to get around in the city - very easy to do).

    Have fun!!
     
  5. I've been to KL a few times for holiday and the food and shopping is to die for!! And i mean to die for especially those along the little alley and stuff. Make sure you visit the KLCC shopping centre at the twin towers and Starhill. I assume if you're on tpf, you might wanna do your spot of bag shopping :yahoo: . There's always some cultural thing going on as well, you can ask your concierge about it and do check out sunway lagoon with is like a waterpark. There are many great swanky and boutique hotels as well and please go to Bukit Bintang where all the restaurants and night spots are and you might bump into a celebrity or two which i doubt you'd recgonize but if you wanna people watch, thats the place to be. Hope you enjoy ur stay!!!
     
  6. Hi Kaka,

    I live in KL.

    Great shopping in :
    1. KLCC (huge mall with all your regular names plus "Aseana" which has Asian designers)
    2. Starhill - the usual big names
    3. Sungei Wang - funky street trendy small shops
    4. Petaling Street - night market stalls. interesting but probably not much to buy. If you dare, you should sample the stall food

    2. Nice restaurants :
    - Bangsar area (get the cab to drop you there and you can walk around to see what you like)
    - HEritage row (some very nice restaurants. this area is near city centre)

    Hope you enjoy your trip.
