Mines Shopping Fair

Mines Shopping Fair is located in Seri Kembangan and is about 30 minutes drive away from the city of Kuala Lumpur. This shopping mall is different from the rest of the malls in the country in that there is a canal that runs right into the complex. This canal links two former tin mines lakes called the North Lake and the South Lake. Take a break and rest your tired legs by hopping on one of the water taxis for an option of 15 or 45 minutes cruise down one or both of the lakes. Enjoy the mini Venice experience in Malaysia.

This shopping mall is part of the Mines Resort City which also include theMines Wonderland, Mines Resort & Golf Club, Palace of Golden Horses Hotel and Mines International Exhibition & Convention Centre. All these facilities are located within the vicinity of the two lakes and were developed by Tan Sri Lee Kim Yew in 1988.
