Travellers flying in and out of Malaysia’s capital Kuala Lumpur can indulge in shopping and dining inside Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).  KLIA was first opened in 1997 and has won awards in 2005, 2006 and 2007. (Update: If you are flying into the new klia2 then check out our post here.)

Come early to the airport before your flight departs so that you have sufficient time to enjoy the facilities and retail in this lifestyle destination.  KLIA has evolved from an aviation hub to a self-sufficient and multi functional airport city that moves ahead with time and offers continuous excitement.

There are over 60 shopping outlets in the restricted area ranging from boutiques, accessories and apparels, beauty, health and personal care, books, souvenirs and gifts, candies, chocolates and delicatessen, cigars, children’s wear and toys, duty free, IT & digital lifestyle, fine jewellery, specialty stores and watches.   There’s something for everyone here.

Victoria’s Secret is one of the more exciting shops within the airport.  Here you can find a wide range of body care and fragrances.  There is also a section for accessories and bags, luggage, small leather goods and sunglasses.  The lingerie section is seemingly limited.  This travel retail concept store under the Valiram group  is one of 5 stores in the Asia Pacific Region. The other stores are in Resorts World Singapore, Bangkok Airport, Sydney and Melbourne airport.   When you are in the store, try to spot the twelve angels on the packaging.  These twelve angels are the face and spokesperson of  Victoria’s Secret.
