Final Thoughts for Shopping Malls in Petaling Jaya

For serious shoppers, there are also other malls found throughout the Klang Valley. You can also check out my other article on 8 Shopping Malls in Bukit Bintang that will keep you busy in Kuala Lumpur.

For the shopaholics, these places are located around the city of Petaling Jaya which is a satellite city from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Getting to these malls take about 20-30 minutes from KL with consideration to the traffic.

If you have no had enough of shopping in KL, you can also try the 10 shopping malls in Petaling Jaya as these are slightly different from the ones in the city but equally interesting.
