Pavillion Kuala Lumpur
The Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, which is situated in Bukit Bintang, one of the busiest shopping and entertainment districts of Kuala Lumpur, is one of the biggest and most popular trade centers in the capital of Malaysia. It was built on the site of the oldest girl college in the city. This trade mall was opened in 2007, becoming an extremely popular shopping space and a paradise for thousands of shopaholics from all over the world. Besides, the building of the trade complex is an important architectural landmark.
The Pavillion Kuala Lumpur includes a shopping center, a block with business offices, an apartment building, and a luxury hotel. The main entrance of the mall features the famous "Crystal Fountain", which is one of its biggest attractions and a way mark for the guests of the city. It is the tallest fountain in the country that was added to the Malaysian Book of Records. It is very common to throw a coin into the fountain and make a wish. In fact, it is so popular that the center's owners collect the offerings on a regular basis and allocate the money for different charity programs.
Made from white marble, the interior of the Pavilion Kuala Lumpur resembles an ancient Greek temple with post-modernist columns. It can be described as a place of worship of sorts, though its guests do not praise Zeus or Artemis. Instead, they come to the trade center to idolize fashion and high-tech. The complex contains seven shopping spaces that are subdivided into six zones with more than 500 stores. These shops have male and female clothes, footwear, elite cosmetics and perfumes, bags, accessories, sport and home goods, and many other things on offer.
The lower sections of the trade center are occupied by the boutiques and fashion stores of the well-known international brands, including Jimmy Choo, Channel, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, MaxMara, Versace, Yves Saint Laurent, Givenchy, Marc Jacobs, and Michael Kors. The other levels of the structure contain stores selling more affordable products from such retailers as Mango, Timberland and Salabianca. The lowest floor of the building features a gigantic food court, where you can savor Korean, Japanese, Chinese and Malaysian dishes. The mall also has several top-class restaurants. Especially noteworthy are Manhattan Fish Market, Dragon-I, Tony Roma’s and Madam Kwan’s. There are several fast food restaurants here, as well as dozens of coffee shops and confectioneries.
Most of the points of interest at the Pavilion Kuala Lumpur concentrate entirely on shopping, meaning that the choice of enjoyments is not very impressive. However, there is a karaoke bar and a movie theater. The upmost floor of the complex is occupied by spa facilities and aesthetic medicine centers.
Amazing sales take place at the Pavilion Kuala Lumpur twice a year, during the summer season and before Christmas. The discounts offered by different stores can reach up to 70% during the sales!
