If you are not into designer labels, Malaysia has a lot to offer you, too. Bargains can be had for everything from books to second-hand clothes and from antiques to electronics. Bargain hunting expeditions usually start at local shopping arcades like Pertama Complex, Ampang Park and Campbell Complex.
Every town has at least a few of these arcades for you to explore.
The street shopping experience - shopping from stall operators and invariably involving some amount of haggling - is best encapsulated by destination like Petaling Street, Jonker Walk (Melaka) and the Damansara and Danau Kota Uptown night-markets. There are also numerous other night-markets that dot the Malaysian landscape. Some town may even feature more the one such market on selected nights.
