Hi, if I want to go shopping at Berjaya Times square, says for 3-4 hours, where can I park? What is their parking rate? (weekday rates and weekend rates?) Any alternative cheaper nearby parking (within 5 minutes walking distance)?

As far as I know, most parking (shopping complex) in KL charge a minimum of RM5..... :D

This is what I did:
Drive to Tun Sambanthan Monorail Station, park near the school or the MAB (Malaysian Association of the Blinds?), parking's free. Take Monorail RM1.60 one-way to Imbi aka Berjaya Times Square. But be sure to lock and double lock ur car there, coz the place can be very quiet. Better still park near the busier road, near the traffic lights. My boss lost a laptop there.

If I'm not mistaken, there's an outdoor carpark next to Times Square that charges a per entry rate. Can't remember how much though. It's on the left before Times Square if you're on Jalan Imbi, coming from Ritz Carlton/Dorsett.

yes..its at the juction facing Park Royal..but they're gila wan!...times are good, they charge RM4.50 or 5, times are no good, as low as RM3.50..

Sungei wang/BB Plaza and Low Yat plaza can be expensive, RM2.50 and RM2 per hour respectively, a bit less for subsequent hours..

I'd take the monorail option!..anytime!.moreover I go there frequently and hold a Monorail pre-paid card..saves the queing up and last trip is compliments to anywhere along route for remaining money.
If you've lots of things to buy home, then park your car there. As for me I'm a window shopper most of the times or small items I can slip into by sling bag.

Parking anywhere the Golden Triangle is a bit costly take HTH's and Bslee's advise if you want to save a bit, I do the same.

Berjaya time square on week day maxinum rate is rm4 for whole day..On weekend maxinum rate is rm6 ! for whole day..if i am not wrong 3 or 4 hours will be around rm4 already in weekday.

I think on weekdays parking around that area is rm4 per day..SOme open parking maybe rm3.50 ..depends on location.

however , on weekend , don park in times square more than 4 hours is rm6 !! very expensive...

Thanks, friends.

cactuc1, when you says maximum RM4 for whole day on weekday, do you mean RM4 per entry. Or, they charged per hour but you only pay maximum of RM4 if you stayed there, says, 5 hours.

I find Mid Valley one of the most suitable place to shop, eat and rest. I find Berjaya Square too big and spaced out..most of the outlets are spread far apartand hard to find. But then again for the experience and to visit Borders why not.

I totally agreed, Ski. My favorite mall are mid-valley, one-utama and the Curve-Ikano-Ikea. Their parkings are RM1. The reason that put me off for so long to make a visit to Berjaya is the cutting-throat parking rate. But somehow, I must pay it a visit so that someday, someone might ask me, "huh? you never visited Berjaya for the past 5 years since you are in KL?"

Yup..pay per hour..and the max is rm4 on weekdays..while weekends is rm6.
I do not remeber the hourly rate..But i think is within less than 5 hours is already max rate...if i remember right, i was there around 3+ hours and i already paid max rate.

I find Megamall the most horrible place in KL. It's not only what it has done to the environment, bringing Kiara-style ghettoisation to Bangsar, but also the concrete bunker design. It's basically a cross between Abu Ghail and a Alcatraz.

I will never go there again and I recommend to everyone with a sense of basic taste to do the same.

As for the Berjaya monstrosity, it is only slightly better designed, but horrible parking facilities and underdimensioned traffic system makes it another no-no. Don't go with the Monorail on a hot day, and only if you have strong young legs, and have not done any serious shopping, because any trace of consideration for people with children or elderly does not exist. It's three staircases to reach the near track and another two to reach the far track. Not even escalators. To call it "Times Square" just adds insult to injury.

Both places stink and should never have been built if there had been any resonsible people in the municipality.

I have slightly nicer things to say about 1-Utama. At least it didn't impose itself onto an already struggling environment.

My office is located at Menara BGI which is exactly opposite Times Square. The connecting bridge between the two buildings makes it very convenient for me to go to Times Square everyday during lunch time. And I fully agree with isarahim!

I've always thought our SJ Carrefour is probably the WORST designed building I've experienced!.

I find parking at Time Sq to be still one of the cheapest in KL. And covered. Besides, parking is ample and the environment is quite good. Not stuffy like in Sg Wang. I park in Time Sq most of the time I am in KL.
