Not many things are more fun than being able to shop on your vacation. In fact, some people's idea of a vacation is shopping. If you are one of those people, you may enjoy spending your holidays at a convenient location in Selangor where you can shop your heart out. There are many outlets for you to broaden your shopping experience and one of the most popular shopping districts in the area is in Kota Damansara. In this part of town you will find many boutiques, retail franchises and also quaint pushcarts selling various trinkets and items ranging from books to prosthetic fingernails. These retail outlets will provide you with many options and you will probably be spoiled for choice.
Other than big shopping malls, one of the places Malaysians love to go to shop is the streets. In this case, you may want to rent a room at a convenient location in Selangor where you can immediately take out your wallet and spend money the minute you step out of your budget accommodation. Places like Little India, Petaling Street and Chowkit Road have inspired many small entrepreneurs to display their goods along a closed street. Generally, the items sold in such street markets are cheaper than that of at shopping malls. This is the place where you can practise your bargaining skills because although the vendors may insist that the prices of their goods are fixed, you can still negotiate your way to a significant discount.
On the other side of the country, you can also opt to sharpen your shopping skills at a convenient location in Malaysia on the Borneo Island. As you may already know, the island is home to many ethnic groups and tribes that have survived the test of time and still exist to this very day. While many of them have joined the modern work forces, some are still depending on their traditional economy to survive. This is how you can help them make a living and yet still have fun doing the one thing you love most - shopping. Handicrafts and woven cloths are their specialty and you may find yourself at a loss on which pattern or design to choose from as they are all usually equally beautiful.
If you are looking for beautiful trinkets from the Borneo Island for souvenirs for your loved ones back home, it is recommended that you stay at a convenient location in Waterfront Kuching because that is where all the handmade souvenirs can be found. The bazaar located along the river is filled with locally made souvenirs made of wood, beads and cloths. One of the best things you can get yourself in this Hornbill State is the Kek Lapis Sarawak or the Sarawak Layer Cake. There are various flavours and patterns to choose from and they are not expensive at all. Buy some for yourself and bring some home.
All in all, shopping is definitely a fun thing to do when you are on vacation (or not). But all that shopping is sure to drain out your energy and you will a place to regroup and refresh. As you will be spending most of your money on shopping expenditures you may want to consider staying at a budget accommodation so that you will have more money to shop with. Many inexpensive hotels nowadays offer not just comfortable rooms but also great services and customer care parallel to their 5-star counterparts. So you can at least be sure that you will be getting a good night sleep after a whole day of shopping.
