Wow! Has it been a year already since our last recap of Christmas décor in Klang Valley malls? Well, tradition dictates that we bring you the latest edition of what’s bringing shoppers that sparkly, jingly Christmas cheer while they spend money celebrate the festive season, so let’s go take a look at what these malls in Malaysia have for us this Christmas!

Always the crown jewel of Malaysia’s shopping mall scene, we thought Pavilion KL couldn’t possibly outdo last year’s stunningly sparkly Swarovski Christmas tree. We were so wrong. This year, the mall once again collaborated with Swarovski to bring in the World’s First Swarovski Crystallised Merry Go Round as the centrepiece of its Christmas Ever After campaign. The magnificent structure is adorned with the key elements from Swarovski’s 2016 Christmas campaign such as the crystal star and gold balloons, not to mention its recognisable dark blue gift box. You can take a ride on the merry go round for RM10, where 10% of the proceeds will be donated to charity. Besides that, there is also a glittering fairytale castle at the Centre Court and a 70ft tall Spritzer sparkling Christmas tree outside the main entrance. All that glitter and sparkle making you dizzy? Hop aboard the Fantasy Train for a magical ride (RM10) at the main entrance!
25 Nov 2016 – 3 Jan 2017
Not one to lose to Pavilion in terms of prestige (and décor), Suria KLCC is again setting a new record this year with the tallest Christmas tree in Malaysia. You’ll find the 32m (100ft) tree standing proud at the Esplanade (better known as the KLCC fountain area) right outside the main entrance. Inside the mall, you can take a peep at Santa’s village and his team of reindeer, which are waiting for you to take photos with them. Besides admiring the magnificent tree, you can also do your part for charity by purchasing a Christmas gift box at the Concierge, which will have your name on it and displayed in an installation inside the mall.
Mid Valley Megamall
24 Nov 2016 – 1 Jan 2017
Mid Valley this year unveiled the beauty that is A Christmas Dream, which houses a sparkling, ethereal mansion in the middle of its Centre Court, surrounding by quaint stalls selling lots of festive items and snacks. Take a leisurely stroll through the (carpeted) paths, or have a rest and snap some photos at the benches dotted along the way. We’re loving the see-through structure strung with crystals – so dreamy and pretty!
1 Utama Shopping Centre
28 Nov – 26 Dec 2016
Christmas has arrived in 1 Utama! A whimsical Christmas awaits you with giant beautiful poinsettia flowers in an enchanting forest. The décor here makes you feel like a tiny Alice walking through a Winter Wonderland, looking up at oversized flowers… and spider webs? You might want to watch out for those giant spiders! 😛 No need to worry about Christmas gifts; there are tons of pop-up stalls selling home décor, toys, accessories, clothing, skincare, snacks and much more just for the festive season!
25 Nov 2016 – 2 Jan 2017
Our inner geeks are loving Sunway Pyramid’s take on Christmas this year, which goes to the “Merry Side of Christmas” with a Star Wars-themed celebration of the festive season. Go Rogue this Christmas with a number of exciting activities and displays from the Star Wars universe. Your inner trooper will delight at the coolly minimalist Rogue One Christmas tree decorated with TIE Fighters, take selfies/wefies with life-sized Death Troopers, and maybe bring home some Imperial toys merchandise for your collection. 😉
2 Dec 2016 – 2 Jan 2017
Who doesn’t love Mickey and Minnie Mouse?! Spend a Sensational Christmas this December with your favourite Disney Friends, and enjoy fun activities for the whole family here. We’re absolutely in love with the cute Mickey-themed decorations here, not to mention wanting to bring home all the adorable Disney plushies. This is definitely one mall you won’t want to miss if you’re a huge Mickey fan, and the oversized decorations are perfect for photos!
Atria Shopping Gallery
25 Nov 2016 – 2 Jan 2017
This small neighbourhood mall is targeted towards families with children, but don’t let that stop you from enjoying the Christmas cheer here! There are lots of fun activities lined up for kids at Atria’s Topsy Turvy Christmas, and plenty of shopping and dining promotions for the adults this festive season.
Queensbay Mall, Penang
1 Nov 2016 – 2 Jan 2017
We couldn’t help but look in awe at these pictures of Queensbay Mall‘s Whimsical Christmas Wonderland! Talk about a white Christmas in our tropical weather. The Christmas spirit is definitely in the air here, and some little elves have told us that the mall has scheduled “snow” to fall at certain times at the Christmas Wonderland area too! If you’re in the area, why not drop by for some snowy selfies? 😉
City Square, Johor Bahru
While the décor here isn’t as ‘wow’ compared to the others here, the oversized gingerbread house and gingerbread man are really cute, and make for a fun photo-op with friends and family.
