Hands down: Sunway Pyramid. I spent a lot of my school years hanging out at ‘Pyramid’ with my friends because it was in a convenient location and had all the shops I loved browsing for food and clothes. It has a good balance of not being one of those too ‘atas’ or high-end kind of malls where you can’t afford anything thanks to its section such as Asian Avenue and college friendly priced food places. Although it’s extremely packed with people, it helps that they implemented the car park system which made life a lot simpler when it came to finding the green light to park at.
Subang Parade because it’s a very convenient family mall. Not much on shopping but more to dining and relaxing which is my kind of thing and parking is easily available unlike many other malls in Subang.

My favourite mall in Subang Jaya would have to be Sunway Pyramid. Three main reasons. First would be variety. Sunway Pyramid has everything you need under one roof. From groceries, clothes, entertainment to good food. Second would be safety. I feel safe parking in Sunway Pyramid because there are always guards present to walk you to your car and who are on constant patrol. Third would be sentimental values. Sunway Pyramid holds tons of good memories for me growing up. First parent-less outing with friends, first date and birthdays. You name it, Sunway Pyramid was where it was at.
My favourite mall would be Subang Parade. I like malls that are convenient and have everything I need in one stop. Subang Parade has a movie theatre, grocery shop as well as a wide variety of eateries. Also, I’ve never had any issues with looking for parking in Subang Parade, so this is definitely a plus point for those who drive.
To be honest there are a lot of good malls in Subang Jaya but my favourite mall has to be Sunway Pyramid. It’s because you could literally do anything there! Have some fun with your family & friends by going ice skating or hitting the Sunway Lagoon, bring your date to the movies or eat at any wide selection of restaurants available or even check out to the interesting events at the convention centre!
So there you have it, folks! The Gen-Ys have spoken and the verdict is Sunway Pyramid. Besides being the first choice for F&B and retail, Gen-Ys find that the ease that comes with parking facilities definitely makes this mall the place to be.
