The Malaysian experience is never complete without a walk through a pasar malam. Pasar malam take place in the evenings from about 6 to 11 pm at various places. The range of goods sold include fresh produce like fish, vegetables and tropical fruits like mangosteens, durians, rambutans, watermelons and others. Look out for clothing items - mass produced bras and underwear, pyjamas, t-shirts, shorts, batik (local Malay print) housecoats which can pass out as evening wear.
Shopping in Kuala Lumpur offers some of the better deals in Asia... Designer labels are expensive anywhere but visitors with hard currencies will find Malaysia relatively cheaper than some of its neighbours.
