Duty Free Shopping

Hi all

Due to its Duty free status is it best to purchase electrical goods, ie cameras, playstations ect, on the island or wait untill you reach KL ?

Any suggestions

found KL was cheaper. a friend from KL recommended Lo Yat Plaza, walking distance from Petronas Towers. Very good prices on all electrical goods; i bought spot on lap top and 17" flat screen lcd screen for pc. very pleased. chinatown for all other tourist goodies, fake t shirts/leather goods/sunnies & dvd's etc. the secret is to travel out with half empty case!

KL better than Langkawi but in both places watch out for inferior Chinese products instead of made in Japan.

If you are also going to Singapore then buy there.
