Shops selling duty free goods, fashion, electronics, souvenirs and travel accessories can be found mainly in the area after security.

In general, KLIA is very well equipped. Terminal 1 serves as a huge shopping arcade for luxury goods. Facilities at Terminal 2 are much poorer and concentrate more on basic travel essentials and shops duty free.

Travelers often look for grocery stores and fast food takeaways.

  • 7 Eleven: Terminal 1, Public Area, Level 2, 6:00 a.m. - 11:00 p.m.

ATMs and currency exchange offices

Only Travelex operates a traditional exchange office at Terminal 2 with very unfavourable exchange rates. Terminal 1 also has branches of regular Malaysian banks with much better rates than Travelex.
