Sungei Wang is probably one of the most popular malls among locals in Kuala Lumpur. Every weekend the mall is packed with visitors. As Sungei Wang is not your typical mall with high ceilings and big stores; some might get a bit claustrophobic because of the many cramped alleys with shops. Sungei Wang has everything imaginable. It is well known for its range of specialty shops. If you are looking for specific products chances are that you will find it here. Sungei Wang's main entrance is located opposite Parkroyal Hotel ; along Jalan Sultan Ismail. The mall is directly connected to neighboring mall BB Plaza. Another entrance is located along Jalan Bulan 1; this is the way to walk from Sungei Wang to neighboring IT/Gadget mall Plaza Low Yat. There is also a very small entrance opposite Plaza IMBI, this entrance leads directly into the Giant Supermarket. Sungei Wang's anchor tenant is Parkson. Both Sungei Wang and BB Plaza cater to a middle class market; some consider it to be a bargain-hunters paradise.

How to get to Sungei Wang
If you are staying in the city center you can easily walk to Sungei Wang as it is located ideally in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. It is located opposite Lot10 and directly connected to BB Plaza. The rear neighbors to Plaza IMBI and Plaza Low Yat. LRT (Light Rail Transit) station Bukit Bintang is directly connected to Sungei Wang; from the LRT you enter Sungei Wang at the 1st floor. If you are staying outside the city center we would suggest taking the monorail. Other public transport is not that reliable in Kuala Lumpur. Another option is to get there by taxi; make sure the driver uses the meter and don't try and find a taxi around closing time or during heavy rains (as everybody needs a taxi at the same time). Opening hours: Sungei Wang is opened daily between 10am and 10pm.
