The Golden Triangle and some


Member Rating 3 out of 5 by Composthp on October 26, 2004

The Golden Triangle encompasses the area of Jalan Bukit Bintang and Jalan Imbi. It is the Orchard road of Singapore, Tsimtsatsui of Hong Kong: the shopping paradise! From high end branded designer togs (no fakes here) to cute t-shirts from Korea, from Swarovski crystals to tacky glass trinkets, the Golden triangle has something to suit every budget size.

High-end:

StarHill- Looking for designer wear? This is the place to be. The anchor tenant is Tangs (from Singapore), but it houses smaller boutiques as well. Outside, there are sidewalk cafes where shoppers can rest their feet and watch the world go by while they sip their tea.

Lot 10 is where shoppers head for the latest in fashion trends. The anchor tenant is Isetan, who is from Japan.

Mid-end to budget:

Sungei Wang Plaza is right across the monorail station. This mall is the favourite among the locals, particularly among the young and hip-hop ones. There are about 500 outlets here offering a wide range of merchandise, from furniture to cheap trinkets. It is the best place for cheap fashion wear, footwear, and accessories; or simply a good place to spend a leisurely afternoon. If you need to eat, there is a variety of food to chose from here. From sushi to burgers, shoppers are simply spoilt for choice.

Times Square is the latest new kid on the block, and touted as the largest shopping mall in Southeast Asia. There are countless of shops selling a huge range of merchandise, but the star attraction here is the indoor theme park located on the 6th floor.

Imbi Plaza is a run-down building(in contrast to the others) that has devoted itself to selling all things related to the computer. This is THE place to hunt for computer accessories and software (although the authenticity may be questionable).

Out of the Golden triangle
