The Cheapest Places To Park Your Car in Bukit Bintang

The Cheapest Places To Park Your Car in Bukit Bintang


Face it: Bukit Bintang is designed to make your wallets bleed.
Home to many of the city’s biggest and glitziest retail malls – including Berjaya Times Square, Sungei Wang Plaza, Low Yat Plaza, Starhill Gallery, Lot 10, Fahrenheit 88 and Pavilion Shopping Mall – there is no wonder that merely inhaling the air of this popular shopping hub is enough to make your net worth founder.
While you can easily spend your life’s savings at these malls, don’t expect to be able to get away without paying an arm and a leg for parking too.
Take Pavilion Shopping Mall for example. It is undeniably a top destination for shoppers, but its parking rates is also one of the most brutal. It charges RM3 per hour (from 7am to 5pm), for all seven days of the week and has no maximum cap, making it one of the most expensive parking malls to park your car in within the Klang Valley!
How much will a typical outing cost you then, if you park at Pavilion? Well, if your trip to the mall comprises typical daytime activities like having lunch, then watching a movie, and taking a leisurely stroll afterwards, you can expect to spend at least three to four hours on average. This means your parking charges can easily amount to RM12, which is rather hefty, considering that you’re paying just for space!
Rates at surrounding malls like Fahrenheit 88 and Low Yat Plaza are slightly cheaper, but the difference is hardly significant. Fahrenheit 88, situated right opposite Pavilion, charges RM4 for the first hour, and RM2 for every subsequent hour (which adds up to RM10 for four hours).
Meanwhile, Low Yat Plaza is located some 850 metres away, but has one of the cheapest parking rates in vicinity. It charges RM2.50 for the first and second hour respectively, RM1.50 for the third and the fourth hour respectively, and RM2 per hour from the fifth hour onwards (RM8 for four hours).
Think parking on the streets would be cheaper? Ha! No such luck.
From 18 July 2016, hourly parking rates at the city centre (which obviously includes Bukit Bintang) have been raised by up to 200%!
With the hike, parking charges in the city centre will now cost RM2 for the first hour from RM0.80 previously. Rates for the second hour and for subsequent hours have also been raised to RM3 respectively. That’s not much better than parking in a commercial parking lot now, is it?
Luckily, you’ve got a frugal friend in iMoney and we’ve scoured the shopping and entertainment district for the cheapest places to park your car in Bukit Bintang. It requires some walking (and in this heat, you might even faint), but you can reduce the damage on your wallet if you’re willing to go the distance!
Note: Distances are estimated using Pavilion Shopping Mall as a destination target for easy reference.
