Any advice on where to find a good price for trolley luggage bag in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia?
I think China Town will be the place to look for trolley luggages.
I'm looking for hardcover trolley luggage with size of 20 inch (cabin) and 28 inch for check-in.
Understood that either Polycarbonate or ABS material are good for hardcover.
Any idea what's the price range?
Saw trolleys in Petaling Street, but I am not sure if they offer it on lower prices but I assume it should be since its in a bazaar market.
You may also want to check Jusco mall at MidValley Megamall in Bangsar area. They are on sale right now. Saw last night they hav 50% off signs on the luggage section.
To go to Petaling Street, you can ride the Kelana Jaya LRT Line and go off PASAR SENI station. You can walk to Petaling Street from there, you will also pass by Central Market - you might want to try to look if they have it there but since its mostly souvenirs, I am guessing none.
To go to MidValley, you can take the KTM Komuter train line to MidValley station and just take the overpass to linking to the mall or you may take the Kelana Jaya Line, go down Bangsar Station - ride the free bus shuttle to MidValley (runs every 30m) or just take taxi for 3 to 4 Ringgit.
Thanks! Will give it a try this evening.
FYI there is a Samsonite Factory Outlet at 3rd Mile Square, Old Klang Road which sells them - recommend the polycarbonate ones with 4 wheels! :-) I'm moving to that after experiencing the ease of 4 wheels on my bigger check in baggage which I bought for my 2 weeks trip to Japan in September!
Saw some trolley luggage bag at Berjaya Times Square. From Ground floor up to 9th floor. But to my surprise, the price is getting cheaper when going up 1 floor. I guess the rental cost does play some decisive factor on why items sold at higher level are cheaper than lower level.
I've tried ChinaTown and i felt it's taking a lot of effort to bargaining with each shop when the environment is hot and humid.
