Things to do at KL's best new malls

If you only do one thing at these new malls...

Catch a quick movie before you leave on a jet plane at Nu Sentral

Hate to wander aimlessly at the airport before you board a midnight flight? Score a quick movie at Nu Sentral’s GSC before you continue your journey on the ERL to KLIA. This new cineplex on level 5 is not only spacious, it’s also mostly empty so there’s no need to jostle among the crowd for a blockbuster ticket. Do some last-minute shopping and check for bargains at Dorothy Perkins and Uniqlo too while you’re at the mall.

Find more sizes and selections at Quill City Mall

Going to a crowd-free mall has never been this exciting because this means no one will fight over that H&M floral jumpsuit you’ve been eyeing for the whole week (with more size options too!). And imagine walking into Hamleys without kids scampering around and knocking down a perfectly constructed Lego set. Fine, we know it’s a toy store but here’s a chance you can finally shop in peace.

Participate in extreme indoor games at IOI City Mall

We’ll never be able to glide on ice outdoors but trust the Olympic-sized ice skating rink at IOI City Mall to deliver nearly the same excitement. The pros usually occupy the circuit in the morning while amateurs slowly pour in as the day wears on; so come early if you want to avoid bumbling skaters. For a quick adrenaline fix instead, head to District 21, the indoor theme park is brimming with obstacle challenges of varying heights and fun factors to suit every thrillseeker.


Go fly a kite or ride a bike at the mall at Setia City Mall

With electric car charging stations, rainwater harvesting and 10.5 acres of landscaped park, Setia City Mall is one of the most environmentally responsible malls in the Klang Valley. We love the well-designed playground for kids and wide open park – perfect for kite-flying and bike riding in the evenings.
