The Top 4 Family Friendly Attractions that you can find in The Pavilion
It’s not hard to see why The Pavilion is one of Kuala Lumpur’s most famous malls – this glamorous 1.37 million square foot complex rises above its neighboring malls due to a its extravagently luxurious selection of local and international brands. Visitors to this trendy mall are spoiled for choice with over 550 outlets containing everything from food to fashion to furnishings.
With its staggering size and haute couture design, the Pavilion is almost always packed with people drawn to its six shopping ‘zones’ and row of street boutiques. During the holiday seasons, the Pavilion’s owners go all out to set up the mall’s iconically extravagent decor. For example, its 2011 Christmas decorations included a Christmas carnival set up in its atrium, complete with a Santa’s Workshop, 10 foot high pine trees, giant sleighs, and countless other baubles and gifts.
Those who’re planning to bring out their families should be aware that the Pavilion does not contain extreme entertainment options like the nearby Berjaya Times Square. However, there are still a few interesting attractions that your kids will definitely enjoy.
Inspired by the Asakusa district in Tokyo, Pavilion’s Tokyo Street is a vibrant, must-visit section on the mall’s sixth floor that contains a variety of Japanese brands and restaurants.
Stepping into Tokyo Street almost feels like you’re entering another world. Visitors are welcomed with a giant lantern – a replica of the iconic landmark in Asakusa’s own Senso-ji Buddhist Temple. The pathways inside are designed to look like traditional Japanese streets, complete with brightly colored lanturns and cute little stalls selling everything from umbrellas to ice cream.
Tokyo Street’s stores are designed to bring you a taste of Japanese life. There are stalls selling traditional Japanese desserts, stalls offering imported miniature bonsai, and of course an anime DVD and merchandise store that anime fans are sure to enjoy.
Aside from that, Tokyo Street also houses some rather quirky stores. Minimalist Lab is the go-to place for personalized accessories – you can create your own customized accessories from the store’s generous selection of brass or stainless steel designs. There’s also Feuzu, an umbrella specialist store that offers high quality umbrellas in all shapes and sizes. They’re so proud of their umbrella’s quality, they even offer a one year warranty!
Food wise, Tokyo Street brings you the true taste of authentic Japanese food. Among the little streets, you can find stalls selling everything from mini Hanjuku cheesecakes to high quality matcha ice cream. The upscale restaurants here also offer a variety of perfectly prepared Japanese dishes that are sure to make you ask for a second helping. Just note that the crowds can get pretty thick during lunch and dinner hours – better come in early if you want to avoid the long queues!
