PETALING JAYA: YTL Corp Bhd’s Starhill Gallery heads Forbes Traveler’s list of Asia’s amazing mega malls for its choice of lavish brands and collection of vast amenities.
In a recent feature, the magazine hailed Starhill Gallery as being so successful that it was fielding offers for the concept to be taken abroad to cities like Shanghai and Moscow.
Starhill Gallery Kuala Lumpur led the list of luxurious malls, followed by the Roppongi Hills in Tokyo and The Siam Paragon in Bangkok, said Forbes Traveler.
It said Asian malls like the Starhill Gallery were in contrast to US malls, which had been out of fashion for at least a decade.
“In Asia, malls are the future. Bright shiny and packed with life, the Asian mall is the epitome of a fun, social shipping experience,” it said.
The feature stated that instead of a fast-food court, Starhill Gallery offers a plethora of high-end dining choices.
The mall also gives shoppers access to top clothing and accessories brands such as Kenzo, Porsche design and Louis Vuitton as well as exclusive watch and jewellery brands including Jaeger-LeCoultre and Van Cleef & Arpels.
