Pavilion KL

What others travelers said about Pavilion Mall Kuala Lumpur

“High end mall”

With many international brands there. If u are a person whom like brands. This is a place for u. There is a supermarket there which u can get almost anything you need. A big mall with good chinese restaurant too. Try the Chinese restaurant, peking duck was nice.

“So much shopping”

Great shopping mall for all your high end fashion boutiques. All the big names Burberry, Michael Kors, Fossil and even a DC Comics store. Little Tokyo was also a great place to have a meal. All round a fabulously clean and modern building to enjoy.

“always my 1st choice…”

The mall is always my first choice for a walk/ shopping during weekend/ leisure time…for me it definitely the best mall in malaysia…it’s all about the luxury & it has everything inside (food, fashion, entertainment)…loved to watch movie (gsc – a bit pricey compared to the other gsc branch) and the food court there (food republic – variety food to choose from)…the parking is quiet expensive…but what i love about the mall is because of the cleanliness & security (i feel comfortable & secured compared to the other mall in bukit bintang area)…it’s been my favourite mall during my couples (used to dating there) until now (have 2 children already)

“High End Taste for High End Shoppers”

As the mall is located directly opposite to the hotel that I am staying in, I decided to check the place out. Being a budget traveler myself, this isn’t one for the common go. Most of the goods sold here are branded items priced within the higher range of listings that are just way out of the comfort zone of the middle income earners. Needless to say, I had nothing much to do here save for watching a movie or two and strutting along the mall, purely for window shopping.

The plus points however being, is that it is huge, spacious and ultimately clean. It is safe and secure nevertheless with most of the mall areas being lighted well and CCTVs in abundance alongside the security officer stationed in the mall entrance and exit. A good place to walk your feet off especially after having a fine meal on the ground floor and the basement. They do have quite a number of outlets for fine dining, while some are tailored towards the common folks – and they aren’t that bad too!

“Where all the branded goods are!”

If you wanna splurge on some luxury items, you will not be disappointed to visit this mall located in Bukit Bintang. It offers lots of international high-end brands in a big mall. Some of the units are still hoarded up for renovation for new shops. If you have been to shopping at Orchard Road in Singapore, this mall feels like one of them in Singapore.

There are plenty of shopping malls at the Bukit Bintang enclave.

Located in the prestigious Bukit Bintang enclave

Pavilion KL is the one of the latest and greatest happening in Kuala Lumpur. I was on a day trip to Pavilion Kuala Lumpur on Christmas eve. For your information, Pavilion KL is the newly opened (opened on Sept 20th) shopping mall in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It is located at Jalan Bukit Bintang. It’s one of the grandest malls in Malaysia, on par with some of the world class shopping malls such as the New York’s 5th Avenue, Tokyo’s Ginza, and Milan.

The mall has seven floors, which has 450 outlets housing shops, food and beverages outlets and urban leisure areas. One of the features of this mall is it’s having designer brand products such as Aigner, Club Monaco, Coach, Ermenegildo Zegna, Hermes, Hugo Boss, Juicy Couture, Prada and Versace where you can’t find elsewhere in Malaysia.

Christmas Experience

Since it was Christmas Eve, as soon as I enter the building,  I was greeted by a giant Christmas tree-like decoration. I don’t think it looks like a tree. But it was awesome and makes the empty lobby lively. I could see scores of visitors snapping pictures of it. In front of the tree stood a stage where there was a choir singing Christmas song  which would be held later in the day.

The shopping experience is very comfortable because of its large airy premises framed with high ceilings and wide corridor pavements and it is also complemented by an exciting tenant mix. It also has many leisure outlets such as GSC Cinemas, RedBox Plus or Times The Bookshop.

Wide walk ways, high ceilings and exceptionally large stores are some of the unique features of Pavilion KL which brings a truly amazing shopping experience to you.

Pavilion Architecture

While browsing one of the jewelery stores, I came across an interesting fact. Pavilion actually means the bottom part of a diamond, below the girdle. See the following diagram. This is true when I look at the information counter where I can see the anatomy of the building. Each floors actually resembles the shape of the bottom part of a diamond if you looked at the building from the top.

The Pavilion KL is all about luxury. This is the place where it will give you a highly fulfilling and inspiring shopping and leisure experience be it a dining or a purely shopping experience.


Truly luxury! High end watches carrying a price tag of RM171,000 and RM104,000 respectively. That’s about the price of a medium end apartment in Kuala Lumpur.

Speaking of dining, there are loads of fine dining restaurants at Pavilion KL. Besides, there is also a food court at the ground floor which caters to people who opt for a diverse level of dining experience.  I believe the food court occupies space of almost half of a floor. You can find a lot of cuisines of various ethics background. During Christmas eve, it was crowded with people! I could hardly find a table.

Getting to Pavilion KL

My suggestion of getting to Pavilion KL is travel by train especially during holiday seasons because it’s very likely that you will be stuck in a traffic jam at the Golden Triangle area. If you are planning to drive there, try to avoid holiday seasons. I would suggest you to take trains instead. That day, I took a Putra LRT (Light Rail Transit) to reach the KL Sentral railway station. From there, I switched to Monorail. You have to walk out of the KL Sentral building to reach the Monorail railway station. It takes less than 5 minutes walk since the Monorail railway station is located right opposite KL Sentral building. From the Monorail railway station, I took the Monorail to reach Bukit Bintang. From Bukit Bintang railway stop, I have to walk about 5 minutes to reach Pavilion KL.
