Massive complex with 2 shopping malls and hundred of shops in Bukit Bintang. People tend to get lost in there.

The block facing Jalan Bukit Bintang is called Bukit Bintang Plaza, commonly known as BB Plaza, and the block facing Jalan Sultan Ismail and Jalan Imbi is called Sungai Wang Plaza. Even though they are 2 different malls, it will feel like one big complex and you won’t notice when you leave one and enter the next.

Links: Sungai Wang Plaza (official website)

This mall is quite different than most other malls, it lacks the spacious walkways and places to sit. Every inch in there seems to be fully utilised for shops. There are hundreds of small shops in the complex and it's hard not to lose orientation while you are in there.However it's a good place to discover and search for good deals. If you are in KL for shopping, BB Plaza / Sungai can't be missed.

There is a huge budget food court on the roof (6th floor) with the biggest chinese buffet that i have ever seen. Malay and Indian food are also available. The food is average but inexpensive.
There is another food court at the basement of Sungai Wang and you can find scattered restaurants throughout the complex.

The post office is at the back of the 3rd floor.

The complex is directly connected to the Bukit Bintang Monorail station. There is a walkway on the first floor connecting the mall to the station.
