Shopping for trinkets at Plaza GM


Plaza GM near Chow Kit market is a treasure trove for cheap junk jewelry, accessories, beads and other trinkets at whole sale prices. It is a bit claustrophobic but you can find lots of curious stuff – it has floors an floors of little shops.

I felt like I just needed to get these Frozen wallets. They set me back RM 6,50 each, jewellery between 1 and 5 Ringgit. Many of the shops offer discounts if you buy a certain number of products – ask the staff, it often is not advertised.

Just outside Plaza GM there are wholesale shops selling bags and men’s leather belts.

It’s really easy to get there by public transport – Chow Kit station is just around the corner. If you are driving, there is parking along Lengkok Raja Laut. There is also car park in Plaza GM itself, but it has a weird lift system for cars – I find it safer to park firmly on the ground.
