Hello. I suggest you find a place to settle in Wangsa Maju. This place is green, considerably clean, have 2 shopping complexes and has a Putra LRT station. There are also many choices of homes there like flats, apartments, condos, semi detach and terrace houses. Wangsa Maju has everything to function as a city on its own.

The rent in Wangsa Maju is still reasonably cheap especially the apartments and condos, usually not more than RM2000. I suggest u look up to the Sri Kenangan Condo, section 5 where my family lives, not a posh place but the architecture and the landscape of the grounds are beautiful.

No. it is not true. Wangsa Maju is definitely safe. The reported crimes in the areas are once in a blue moon.

Wangsa Maju has a major police station.The development company, PGK who developed much of Wangsa Maju even have security guards patroling the their development area.Many people in WM even jog early in the morning and even late at night like what my brother and his friends do, so this shows that we feel very secure in Wangsa Maju.

Wangsa Maju is very green, there are many shady trees and there's a hill with a trail leading to a water tank, many Wangsa Maju residents jog along this trail and you can seen the beautiful surrounding area of Setapak. Wangsa Maju is also well connected with walking paths covered by shady trees, which many people use as jogging trails. And believe it or not, the air in Wangsa Maju is cool and fresh, coz it's near a hilly region surrounded by mountains.

Wangsa Maju has a lively night life, mamak and nasi kandar restaurants are abundant and there are many stalls at Section 5 serving great food and serve late into the night. Soon, Victoria Station will also open a premise in Wangsa Maju. Soon, WM will be like another Bangsar, but more organized and livelier.

I think you have to determine where about are you going to work in KL first before deciding where to live. Perhaps it is also good that you have worked out a budget, and the type of apartment (eg. no. of rooms) you are looking at.

That place is not good if you have no private transport. There are no train station there and the bus service is questionable. It seems nice with all the latest trendy apartments there but the place is still lacking in terms of stores and shops that we usually find in a more mature neighbourhood.

Also that the traffic condition in that area is not my cup of tea.


Oh and all the above goes the same to USJ as well except for the lack of stores and shops

You're just generalising. Wangsa Maju had one of the busiest concentration of eateries in KL. Just look at BRJ and its vicinity and you'll know. If this place is so crime-ridden then there wouldn't be so many people there right?

This suburb are also served by the eastern section of Putraline (a metro rail service).

Terrorist dun rob people. They kill.

I dun think news would talk bad about a place. Should there be a crime haven, it would've been Bangsar. But you see....no one would say anything bad about Bangsar. However the numbers are negligible so other suburbs are quite safe. Even Bangsar is safe

To narrow thinks down, I was generally referring to Sec.2, Sec.4, Sec.5, Sec.6 of Wangsa Maju. These parts of Wangsa Maju is more refined and developed than the ones in Desa Setapak, which is near Wangsa Maju. I have lived in Wangsa Maju for 6 years now and I have not been intimidated once, I even went to tuition in Sec. 5 and walk back alone to Sec. 6 at 10 pm 2 days a week, and I have never been robbed or anything but it's best to keep ur vigil...like walking in groups or with a friend.

Since, Hafez wants a place near a train/MRT station, Wangsa Maju is the right place. It has an LRT station and the feeder bus in the area which is reliable plus Rapid KL has a bus to the city which stops at Carrefour. I suggest u stay at Sec.5 and Sec. 6 coz u can always walk to Carrefour or take a bus to the LRT statio or the Jaya Jusco shopping centre. Walking to the LRT station is also not a big problem, only 20 mintes walk from Sec. 5 and Sec. 6, if u want to endure the Malaysian sun . There are plenty of taxis at Carrefour too.

Setapak is not part of Wangsa Maju. Actually Wangsa Maju is part of Setapak.

Desa Setapak is generally not part of Wangsa Maju, it's quite far from sec.2,sec.4,sec.5,sec.6 of Wangsa Maju.About 10 minutes drive.

I just thought of a place, which is often neglected in discussion - TTDI (Taman Tun Dr Ismail).

Hafez-Pariz you might want to put TTDI on the top of your list. This is a very quiet place with beautiful treelines, near to world-class shopping malls (1 Utama is within walking distance, slightly further away are the Curve, Ikea, etc). No worries on public transport as it has lotsa bus stops. It is close to eating places such as Damansara Utama, Damansara Jaya, even to Damansara Perdana, all within walking distance. TTDI town centre is also a food paradise by itself. TTDI also has a big market. If you dont mind to do abit more walking, you can actually go to SS2, which is PJ's ultimate food paradise. TTDI also has many many parks, the biggest being TTDI Park which is a forest reserve. Crime rate in TTDI is reputably one of the lowest in KL and even in Klang Valley. Having said that, it is indeed an affluent neighbourhood.

To me - Mutiara Damansara/Riana Green/Tropicana areas - fast growing areas where you can get almost anything you can find downtown.
Also, Bangsar & Damansara Heights - so close to the city yet so green. Perfect!

TTDI is a nice place to live indeed In fact my parents bought a house there but later they sold it

ANyway TTDI doesn't meet his requirement of a convenient place for public transportation. A private car is essential to living at TTDI

Wangsa Maju is also near the Zoo Negara . If you wanna go to a park, u can ride the LRT or a taxi from Wangsa Maju to the park at Jelatek, but you can also walk or jog to the park coz it's relatively near, 3-4 km max from sec.5 and sec.6 Wangsa Maju. You can have a nice view of the KL skyline from that park.
