If you’re planning a trip to Malaysia soon, it’ll please you to know that a new shopping paradise has emerged in KL: The Exchange TRX. With more than 500 brands spread across over 95 floors, the new Malaysian landmark is a retail wonderland you don’t want to miss. Getting to Kuala Lumpur, though, is only half the battle won; the other is finding the best way to get to this shopper’s paradise, and this includes you’re driving, taking public transport and parking options. Read on to find out some of the best recommended ways.
How to get to The Exchange TRX by car
If your transportation of choice is your trusty vehicle, the path to The Exchange TRX is a breeze. For the road warriors out there, just key in its name into your trusty Waze or any navigation software of your choice. The mall is a city gem, easily found from key urban arteries such as Jalan Tun Razak, the SMART Tunnel, or directly from the MEX and SPE elevated routes.
Travelling via Jalan Tun Razak? No matter which direction you’re coming from, the road to The Exchange TRX is clear. If you’re journeying from the Bulatan Kampung Pandan side, stick to the left and follow the yellow brick road (or in this case, the slip road) that leads straight to the TRX Tunnel. For those adventuring from the Mont Kiara or Damansara direction, remember to keep left, then veer onto the right slip road which will guide you to the tunnel entrance.
SMART Tunnel explorers can navigate their way to the mall by simply taking the exit marked ‘TRX’. This magical exit leads you straight into the belly of the TRX Tunnel, from where you can choose from four different exits and find yourself stepping right into The Exchange TRX.
