While the year-end festive gift shopping may be overwhelming, stop and take in the Christmas spirit by admiring the stunning decor the malls in town have come up with.

Yes, this is the time when the malls are all decked up with extravagant decorations to spread the holiday cheer and to draw in more visitors.

This year, most malls have chosen classic winter scenes in striking white or giant Christmas trees with shiny red, gold and green trimmings. But there is one mall that decided to go rogue and take on a Star Wars theme.

We have handpicked some of the best-decked malls this season where shoppers are spoilt for choice for Instagram-able photo moments at every turn.

Queensbay Mall, Penang

Many will go “wow” when they enter the winter wonderland put up by Queensbay Mall this festive season. It is a full blast of Winter Joy with penguins, reindeers and snowmen all on parade at the centre court of the mall.  

Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, KL

Step into Pavilion KL’s experiential pop-up, galactic Christmas playground and catch the Star Wars-inspired light experience held daily at 3pm and 8pm. Star Wars fans will be delighted with some of the most impressive Star Wars replicas including the Millennium Falcon, and themed performances on show.

Sunway Pyramid, PJ

Inspired by the Dresden Christmas Market, visitors get to feel the atmosphere of the oldest Christmas Market in Germany with its market arch, stalls and a 36ft tall traditional Christmas Pyramid featuring a magnificent display of rotating statues on each level.

Mid Valley Megamall, KL

Santa’s Toyland is now happening at Mid Valley Megamall. Look closely at the Christmas trees, the clock tower and inside the little hut and see what you’ll find. There are toys, presents, fairy lights and countless teddy bears everywhere at the North and South Courts of the mall.

IPC Shopping Centre, PJ

It is a special Christmas for IPC Shopping Centre in Mutiara Damansara, as the mall is also celebrating its 16th anniversary. Themed Wondrous Winterland, the mall has set up a giant lighted crystal globe with a 15ft Christmas tree inside. Your kids can ride around the concourse area in a special mini train while you get busy taking photos.     

IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

Instead of putting up a classic green or white Christmas tree, IOI City Mall decided to have a red tree as the centre of its decoration accompanied by sparkling smaller trees with red glossy baubles to reflect the theme of Sparkle, Shimmer & Shine.

The Gardens Mall, KL

Satisfy your fascination for a white Christmas at The Gardens Mall. With the theme Christmas Dream, a serene picture of a snowy Christmas is made complete with the addition of various Arctic animals such as polar bears and reindeers.  

Berjaya Times Square, KL

Be warned, you may be put under a spell by the dazzling red and silver giant baubles floating in the air at Berjaya Times Square. The mall has been transformed into a land of enchanment with strings of twinkling ornaments.
