One of the trends which are speedily catching up in Malaysia is Korean fashion. It is widely popular among youngsters and you can shop for it in the malls of Bukit Bintang area. The Korean dramas such as stairway to heaven and the bands like Super Junior and Wonder girls have been hugely popularising the Korean fashion. There are many wholesale shops in Malaysia and online sites which are actively selling Korean clothes. Korean dresses are stylish, fresh and very original that is why Korean fashion is more popular than the Japanese fashion in Malaysia. Also Korean designs are very funky with lot of stripes, polka dots and ribbons.

The best places to buy fashion clothing in Malaysia are Kualalumpur, Langkawi and Penang. But if you are on the lookout for traditional products then you should travel to Malacca and the further East coast. Kualalumpur has many branded shops and multi story shopping malls where you can purchase all sort of items in a single place. Penang had once been known as the number one tax haven of Malaysia.
