The Curve is probably the single most popular mall among expats that live in Kuala Lumpur. This is partly because it is located to one of the biggest expat enclaves of the city; Mont Kiara. The Curve is a very nice shopping mall, with over 250 stores spread out over 3 floors. The Curve is located outside of Kuala Lumpur city center; within Petaling Jaya. Tourists that stay within the Golden Triangle have ample shopping possibilities at their disposure. For them there is probably no need to travel all the way to The Curve to shop.

Anchor and other shops
Anchor tenant at The Curve is Metrojaya. They have a big store comprising 2 floors. Right outside The Curve there is a huge Tesco; probably one of the biggest supermarkets in Malaysia. At the other side of the complex you will find 'The Street'. Here all the outside restaurants are located. Every night people from the area come together to have dinner or to enjoy a drink. Past the restaurants you will find e@Curve; the cineplex with numerous screens.
IKANO Power Centre
Right opposite of The Curve you can find the huge IKANO Power Centre; a huge complex with only the headquarters or flagship stores of the biggest (non-fashion) brands. Here you find the IKEA (first and only IKEA in Malaysia), Macy's, Aussini, a huge Harvey Norman, the biggest pet store in KL and many other big stores including a Cold Storage at the lower ground floor. IKANO Power Centre is connected to The Curve by a sky bridge from the 1nd floor and an underpass located in front of the entrance to IKEA.
KidZania Kuala Lumpur
KidZania is a theme park for young children. It is located nearly opposite of the Curve; opposite of IKEA and Tesco. The huge 80,000sq ft indoor park will be connected by a sky bridge to The Curve. KidZania replicates a city for kids; with many fun attractions for the kids to enjoy. Families that travel to and through Malaysia with kids will have a great fun day out in Kuala Lumpur (as there are not that many great places to visit with young children besides Sunway Lagoon). KidZania was opened to public in early 2012.
How to get to The Curve
You can easily get to The Curve by taxi; though getting a taxi back to your hotel often is a hassle as taxi drivers try to earn big bucks from naive tourists that venture all the way out to Mutiara Damansara. You can get to The Curve by public transport; there are RapidKL busses that depart from KL Sentral to The Curve (and to nearby mall 1 Utama). You can also take the train to LRT station Kelana Jaya. From here you can either take the bus or (a cheaper) taxi. There is also a free shuttle bus, but that one time we tried to take it the shuttle bus never showed up.
Opening hours: As usual the mall is opened daily from 10am to 10pm. The outside area (Street Mall) is opened daily until midnight (and until 1am during weekends).
