“Cheap items everywhere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2017

We can find some Hobbies shop that sells action figure here at the 2nd and 3rd floor, and the other floor were selling shirts and souvenirs at cheaper price, I suggest you check this place out to buy some souvenirs to bring home.

Last but not least : Don't forget to bargain, always! sometimes you can even reach buy 1 get 1 deal

“Lots have changed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2017

Still remember the good old days when Sungei Wang was "THE" place for some real shopping, with shops cramped from corner to corner, selling much affordable items from clothings to accessories. Weekends were somewhat predictable back in those days - jam packed with shoppers.

Nowadays Sungei Wang has been reduced to just another regular mall in KL with nothing much to see of shop. Bargains and sale are not frequent and even then, the prices has gone up rather significantly. This is probably the reason why it was pretty empty when were were there. Plenty of walkway space with no crowd to plough through, something unheard of in its heydays,

“A bit run-down kind of shopping centre”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2017

Went here to just to pass by because we wanted to get to Pavillion KL. The shopping centre was old and it did not provide many benches or chairs for travelers to sit & rest.

“Used to the best shopping mall in Malaysia for decades”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2017

This was D-Place to be back in the 80s and 90s, but by now, the new style malls with better offerings has almost virtually taken it out of the race.

However, it remains an attraction, as there are still many variety of shops in there that would be attractive to tourists, especially those that are run by entrepreneurs rather than a chain outlet.
