Top shopping places to buy gifts for Christmas in KL //

The shortest time of the year is coming again. This means that Christmas decorations, but not half-baked, we are talking about are large and elaborate types that can be found in many of our favourite malls. So, to honour the dedication and effort these shopping malls put into their decorations each year, we've compiled a list of our pictures for some of the best and unique designs that the Mall of Clang Valley has to offer this coming Christmas.

1. Pavilion Kuala Lumpur

Bukit Bintang Staples once again hit the ball outside the park with its "Star Wars" theme design. The Christmas decorations are filled with some of the most impressive "Star Wars" you can find. It is a replica of the particularly iconic "Star Wars" ship, the Millennium Falcon, which is on record in the Malaysian books for being the largest of its kind. So, if you like "Star Wars" and love Christmas, check out the decorations themselves at the Pavilion Kuala Lumpur. It is also in combination with the much-awaited "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker". Don't miss taking some pictures for an interactive experience at HyperDrive and Cockpit Access Stations!
