Man, the clothes there are really cheap! Most of the shops have promotions with each piece of apparel (i.e. dress, shorts, pants etc) averaging out to cost about RM15 each. Dirt cheap! The quality of the clothes are also very good, it is a real deal with a low price and high quality of fashion apparel. Apparel there is suitable for all sorts of occasions work, parties, formal events, casual outings.
Do not expect much from service though, most retail assistants will just do the bare minimum and answer your queries nonchalantly. I would take cheap prices over good service anytime, though. Be sure to constantly be on the lookout for certain landmarks though, it is quite easy to get lost! Don't worry about prices differing across shops, prices are more or less uniform; or at least for fashion apparel.
This place is like a pasar malam as it is filled with cheap clothes and shoes. The environment is also quite lousy, only slightly better than a pasar malam.
I like buying T-shirts here once in a while as they have cute T-shirts at RM10 each. The other clothes are usually not my type though. Quite "lala" in my opinion. Nevertheless, if you browse through thoroughly, I'm sure there are pieces that look quite decent.
A decent place for shopping.
As Sungei Wang plaza is located close to where I always stay on my visit to the city of KL, it's one of the go to place whenever I have an urge to shop.
In terms of price, it's not really the cheapest out there. However, most of it is decent and you get what you paid for in terms of quality. There's a shoe store in the lower ground floor that my mum likes to frequent as there's always a 'on sale' tag on at least one of the items. On the other hand, my frequent flyer dad never fails to visit the luggage shop that is located on the street level and leave with at least one of the suitcase on display.
In terms of food, I think that there's not much choice inside the mall. I do love to go to the Aunty Anne's located in front of the stairs in the lower ground floor.
There's also some hand phone stalls in the 2nd and 3rd floor. My advice however, do your research and ask around for prices. Some of the stalls are known to overcharge.
Great place to test your negotiation skills
Went to Kuala Lumpur yesterday for a shopping trip and Sungei Wang Plaza was one of the stops. My hubby like the trendy men's wear available compared to other malls which mainly focused on ladies' wear. He was not a great negotiator and paid RM25 for a tee shirt. I helped him on the next deal for two working shirts and I managed to get it at RM15 each. My hubby was shocked by the price variations.
Contrary to many's theory about things being cheaper on the higher floors, things are cheap on any floor so long you know how to negotiate with them. I like to start off below 50% and you must be able to take sarcasm by the shop owners.
My gaming heaven as a kid.
As a kid who enjoys playing videogames, in particular, the Playstation, Sungei Wang was the place I often visit with my family not only to shop but to also view some gaming accessories. I always spent time walking with my dad for some ice cream, famous amos cookies and the chinese guys working at the game shops are really friendly. Not to mention, helpful.
They had no hostility towards its customers and are willing to help you in anyway possible to solve your problems and I am one of their happy customers. My mother also loves this place as you can find some local fashion goodies rather than the usual branded fashion items you can find anywhere else. Another memorable childhood experience like 1 Utama but this place takes the cake for favourite childhood mall.
Cheap and shady
During the weekends, this mall is an absolute nightmare to be in. There will be huge crowds of people which makes walking around very difficult. The building and it's air conditioning system is very dilapidated and sorely requires upgrading. The air is stuffy and full of the stench of other people.
The items on sale are normally cheap rip offs so I am normally sceptical when someone offers me a "Great discount" on the latest mobile phone there. The building structure can be confusing and I absolutely cannot find a directory on any of the floors except one which is on the 4th floor. Though the complex is easily reachable by public transport, I wouldn't recommend shopping here as there are better malls right opposite the street.
Heaven for cheap findings
You can find almost anything here with cheap prices. Clothes here are usually updated and in season, so feast your eyes and have a great time shopping. But some shops carry the same items and mostly repetitive so you'll get bored looking at the same ones. Size is a problem too. They're mostly small to medium so if you have a big frame, this place is not for you.
Gadgets are sold here too so make sure you use your bargaining skill. You might end up with a great deal at the end of the day.
A great place for teenagers and youngsters to shop.
Great place to hunt for a bargain
Sg Wang is one of the oldest and famous shopping centre around in Kuala Lumpur. Strategically located in the Golden Triangle & easily reachable through public transportation; Monorail stops right in front of it. It is a great place to hunt and shop for bargains and interesting items here.
But I dislike the layout of the building here, it is really easy to get lost and I still get lost every now and then even when I have visited this place for a few times. You can find really cheap clothes here but do not compare them in terms of quality to some of the more expensive brands. There are also a Parkson and Giant here to satisfy your shopping needs. And it that’s not enough, just by walking over to BB Plaza you will find Metrojaya.
Hidden gem for affordable fashion finds.
If you’re a person who doesn’t think branded clothing is necessary, I would suggest you to shop here at Sungei Wang Plaza.
There are more than hundreds of small fashion outlets selling unbranded clothing from top to bottom, including accessories. That is why I can never finish visiting every single outlet in Sungei Wang in one day before, which is something quite impossible.
With some patience and determination, sometimes you’ll spot something of good quality and cheap. However, please do note that many of the stores and selling the exact same clothes, but with different prices. So you can always compare the prices and come back to the shop later. Just bear this in mind - never rush to buy anything.
Sungai Wang has changed from time to time but it still remains its origin. Once you stepped into the mall, you will get Famous Amos fragrant then you will notice you are among human traffic. The mall is crowded with tourists, teenagers, ladies and families. I regard Sungai Wang as the famous hang out spot for teenagers and shopping heaven for ladies because there are a lot of outlets selling accessories, clothes and finger foods. If you have time to take a walk in the mall, you will find out most of the outlets are selling clothes, bags and accessories.
