shopping Ooi

From trendy malls to open-air markets, Malaysia is a fabulous destination for holiday shopping. And the good news is that the ‘1Malaysia Year-End Sale (1MYES) is back – bigger and better than ever before.

There are a pile of events and celebrations taking place at hundreds of shopping outlets throughout the country before January 5, 2014.

To help all those shopaholic visitors, Tourism Malaysia has released a special ‘My Extreme Shopping Addiction’ booklet that lists all the major events and promotions happening during 1MYES.

This year, the Central Market in Kuala Lumpur celebrates its 125th Anniversary during 1MYES. Not only is it having a sale and hosting a heritage food fair, but visitors also have the opportunity to discover how Central Market was transformed from a wet market to a centre for Malaysian culture, heritage, art and craft at the ‘Walking Down Memory Lane’ exhibition.

With gigantic malls, terrific bargains, top value offers and great chances to win prizes in many contests, 1MYES features all the elements that keep shopaholics happy. The fun extends beyond the malls and markets to the country’s hotels, restaurants, tour operators and transport companies, all of which offer tempting holiday packages for visitors to take advantage of.
