You can’t very well visit Kuala Lumpur and not see the Petronas Twin Towers. And while you’re there, you’ll naturally find yourself in Suria KLCC mall which sits right beneath the towers. Riding on the fame of the towers, Suria KLCC has become an icon amongst shoppers both local and foreign. Although it is as well known for its wide selection of designer goods, it also has a huge selection of mid -range merchandise. Hence, it enjoys a clientele of shoppers that include those on a budget, as well as those for whom price tags aren’t a concern. Cartier, TOD’s, Brooks Brothers, Hugo Boss, Jimmy Choo, Farah Khan, Carolina Herrera, Dior and many more designer names rub shoulders with Vincci, Lyn, Salabianca, Nose, British India and other mid-range labels.
Suria KLCC is especially known for its great food and beverage options. While the upper floors house a string of fine restaurants offering Eastern and Western delights, the ground floor is strewn with cosy cafes, bars and food kiosks. The promenade fronting the mall’s lovely fountain and park is dotted with more cafes and restaurants and is the spot most visitors head to for snapshots with the towers as backdrop.
The Petrosains Gallery is one of the mall’s most interesting elements. Educational and immensely exciting in the earth science aspect, it is the only gallery of its kind in the country. Connected to the mall is the Aquaria with its myriad marine life exhibits and geographical trivia. These simply are two of the coolest places to visit in the city!
It’s safe to say that you would need more than a day to enjoy the retail, dining and entertainment pleasures of Suria KLCC because as its tagline claims, there is ‘Always Something New’.
