The best stocked bookstore in KL can nowadays offer the same array of recently published international best sellers as any world capital. In addition they have a large collection of books on Asia in English, also fiction by local authors.

This internationally recognised bookstore remains one of my favourite hideouts during my sojourn in Kuala Lumpur. It is comforting to find books of a wide range, catering to the needs and liking of almost anyone. Unfortunately, some of the books were wrapped tightly in plastic, making casual reading impossible. For my first trip to this bookstore, I had managed to find 3 notebooks, 2 in Vincent Van Gogh and 1 in Bodleian Libraries for purchase, a CNY-themed pouch bag and file from Loka Made brand. There are some interesting Penguin Books theme tote bags selling at Kuala Lumpur, which Singapore doesn’t have! However, the travel section in KL store is rather limited as compared to Singapore. I certainly look forward to re-visiting this store again in my future trips to Kuala Lumpur, subject to time availability.

My wife and I visited this impressive book store during our recent holiday in Kuala Lumpur. I think it is the largest book store in Malaysia. It would be easy for book lovers to spend a few hours in this store.

A must visit if you are in the town. Good hang out place for family. Getting books where you couldnt get in else where. You can enjoy a wonderful view of KLCC Park from the bookstore.

Kinokuniya is amongst my favourite bookstores to visit in the Klang Valley. The books might be higher priced compare to other chains, but it made up with its quick on-shelf time and in-depth selection on a topic. I usually frequent the manga section, which covers most mainstream titles, also some hidden jewel titles.

A must visit for bookworms. 10/10.

Don’t miss this huge bookstore on the top floor of Suria KLCC shopping mall. There’s a wide range of English books and magazines, including special offers on the latest releases. There’s also great views from the cafe of the city skyline.

Nowadays the latest books arrive also in KL quickly so I am stacking up my holiday reading here on the top floor of Suria mall. They have a good selection of Asian authors in English as well and special sections for young adults too. I don't like things go to waste so I take my books after reading to a second hand bookstore owned by Indian brothers at Central market.
