Kuala Lumpur Luggage Repair Shop

What's a good thing to have done in Malaysia? Repair your gym bag, duffel bag, or your luggage. It takes about 3-5 working days and they can pick-up and deliver. If you'd rather not pay the extra charges - you can easily drop your bag.

Bag Repair Shop #1 has been around for a long time and is right on one of the main roads of Chow Kit. It's also the sole professional agent to repair luggge for a lot of major airlines. If your bag was damaged by an airline at KUL/KLIA - and you insist on them repairing it - this is the shop that will fix it.

DIRECTIONS: From the Star Line's PWTC STN (World Trade Centre Station) - exit to your right and go downhill to the first major intersection (@ Jalan Raja Laut). At this light, you'll see a 24-hour KFC on your left and a corner Chinese food stall on you right. Cross over the street to the corner with the 7-11 and go right. (You'll be walking down the sidewalk agains the traffic. This is important because if you've gone one major street too far - then you'll be walking in the same direction as the traffic.)

Just about a block - right after you pass a corner hotel - and cross a small side street - you should see the shop on your left. It's old and dusty. If you've hit the City Hotel - you've gone too far.

DIRECTIONS: From the Monorail's Chow Kit STN - get off going south. Just ask someone which way to Chow Kit - they'll send you down the stairs. Walk in the same direction as the traffic on this one-way street. About half a block down, take a right at the first big street -- onto Jalan Chow Kit. Cross over and take your left at the next major street -- Jalan Raja Laut. You'll see the 7-11 on your left and kitty-corner is the 24-hour KFC. Follow same directions as above.

Each shop would have to see your bag to give you an estimate. But just to re-sew a 5" tear on the bottom of a duffel bag was RM20.
