How to shop like a boss at Low Yat Plaza

3. Know your floors

For the first timers or those who aren't familiar with Low Yat's layout, here's the rule of thumb:

  • Lower Ground has all the eateries (including food court)
  • Ground floor is the event space
  • First floor is cellphones
  • Second floor is computers
  • Third floor is home to the big IT stores. 

If you're short on time, you might want to skip the first few floors and head straight for the third. If you're not in a hurry, take a nice stroll down from the third floor. Have a peek at the smaller stores, you might find something unexpected hiding in a corner.

4. Drop by on a weekday

People all over the Klang Valley flock to Low Yat on weekends. That means the shop assistants are going to take a long time to get back to you. That also means the escalators are going to be packed. Save yourself the hassle and go as early as 10am, that's when the mall opens. Better yet, go on a weekday.

5. Take your time

This is not really a tip. This is more of a public safety announcement.

Now that you've got all of your pricing information, head to one of the cafes (Pak Hailam on level 3, if the ground floor feels too far away). Have a seat, order a hot drink. Let your mind wander. In a more relaxed frame of mind, you'll feel more confident in making a decision. If it looks too good to be true, then it probably is.

Don't be afraid to walk away, it's your money after all. And the old saying goes, "If you need an answer right now, then the answer's no."
