Top 10 Best Shopping Malls for Hangouts in Klang Valley 2022

Shopping malls in Malaysia might not be groundbreaking news as Malaysians, they sure love their malls. A shopping mall is versatile and can be a place for everything if you are creative. From a hangout all the way to a wedding, everything is possible as long as the malls are able to provide the necessities in doing so.

Choosing a shopping mall as a hangout spot might be the most mainstream thing that you have ever heard today, but you cannot deny that it is somewhat a good idea as most shopping malls have everything, literally. So, you and your companions will not run out of ideas regarding what to do.

How to choose the right mall to hangout

In choosing a location for a graduation photoshoot, or any photoshoot in that sense, the location must fulfil the criteria of convenience, distance, and aesthetic in order to have the best experience of hanging out with friends or family.

  1. Convenience

Expectedly, a shopping mall must have an abundant amount of restaurants, retail stores, and maybe even a whole built-in theme park. For convenience, it is advisable for you to choose a mall that provides all necessities that you plan for that day.

  1. Distance

If you are not picking up everyone and some of your friends live quite far from the mall, then it might not be the best thing to hangout at that particular location. Conveniently, choose a shopping mall that is relatively near, or covered by public transport.

  1. Aesthetic

If you or your friends are social butterflies, then uploading pictures is a must. The shopping mall that you are going to must have spots that are “instagrammable” in order to snap really good photos for memories, and the followers of course.
