Savvy shoppers know that Malaysia offers great shopping options. Street shopping, mall shopping, boutique shopping, low end, high end, Malaysia offers it all. Luxury retail in Malaysia, in recent years has in fact been growing rapidly, for the country is known to have some of the most competitive prices for luxury goods. This is largely due to the fact that the Royal Malaysian Customs department has designated approximately 300 products as ‘Free duty’, meaning that these products are not subject to import duties or customs levies.
‘Free duty’ products in Malaysia include various high end  products like wrist watches, fragrances, cosmetics, gadgets like cameras and computers, gold and jewelry, sports equipment, leather shoes and bags, apparel, most of which  are produced by well-known global high-end brands. All these various products are available at Malaysia’s many bastions of high-end retail, the most popular of which are listed below:
