All the shopping malls have at least 200 parking bays except One Jaya, One TJ, Hopoh Shopping Centre and Electra House. One Jaya, One TJ and Electra House do no have their own basement car park. One TJ and One Jaya were built at commercial centres with ample parking space whereas Electra House is situated adjacent to a multi-storey carpark. Hopoh Shopping Centre has its own car park but I think the parking bays does not exceed 200.

Looks like the malls in Kuching are better than those of the cities in West Malaysia in general, except KL. At least the outlook.

Thanks for all your compliment. Since year 2008 there are big transformation of Kuching's retail landscape following the success of The Spring and Boulevard Shopping Mall. Before that Kuching is definitely out of top 10 in terms of shopping malls/retail industry. However, there are still lots of room for improvement. We don't have much choices here as compared to cities in Peninsular Malaysia. Tesco, AEON, Subway, Burger King, Domino's Pizza, Wendy's, Krispy Creme, Nando's, Rotiboy, Auntie Anne's Pretzels, Sushi Zanmai, Kim Gary, etc do not have single outlet in Kuching yet. Hope VivaCity Megamall will bring in some of the F&B outlets here.

kuching and sabah definitely can in my opinion. with beautiful surrounding and spacious land, the shopping experience will be much better than packed and hectic city like KL.
