Kuala Lumpur, Klang Valley

Kuala Lumpur (also known as KL) is the capital city of Malaysia. The metropolitan area of KL, or Greater KL, has a population of around 7 millions. It is the most racially diverse city in Malaysia, with the population made up of mainly Malays, Chinese, Indians, Banglas, and Indons. The public transportation in this city is very well built, with many LRT & MRT train lines, supported by RapidKL shuttle buses.

As for the real estate market, Kuala Lumpur has the most expensive properties in the country due to it being the capital city and houses many GLC & multinational headquarters. Besides, KL also has the most foreigner-friendly real estate investment policies by the federal government, as foreigners can easily buy any residential properties here without any restrictions, as long as the price is above RM1 million.

The following shows the residential property transactions in KL over the last few years:

Most foreigners who invest in KL properties usually prefer high-end condominiums in the few expat-friendly hotspots, such as Jalan Ampang, KLCC, and Mont Kiara. On the other hands, the locals will prefer landed residential properties in established neighbourhoods, such as Bangsar, Damansara Heights, Desa ParkCity, and Taman Desa. This observation may be due to foreigners prefer condo facilities for their families' enjoyment, while the locals look more towards capital appreciation of the land their house built on.

The design of traffic flow in this development is very bad. First it forces traffic to flow thru its basement then cars need to circle 2 rounds before can come up to the group level to pickup passengers. Also badly named signboards and building names.

Dysfunctional JMC and useless Chairmans for the last several years ... the property manager of Twins told me this is a low-class condominium himself.

Anyway, I sold my unit already as I couldn't bear with the bad management!

Good news for Twins, as Sprint bypass to KL is being built next to Pavilion Damansara Heights. So less traffic and reduced traffic noise for Twins when bypass is completed.

A very niche community mall with some nice restaurants. The food here are expensive though, especially the Thai restaurant on the ground floor.

One of my favorite shopping malls in Malaysia. Nice and conformtable.

Can basically find anything you want here. The only brand missing here is H&M.

Nice condo just opposite Plaza Arcadia. Probably the best condo in Desa Park.

In terms of land size, SP 1 has more land and better facilities compared to the new SP 2 & 3. Especially the swimming pool here makes the place look very green.

A very decent studio apartment where one can find plenty of amenities and food by just walking downstairs.

Security very tight. Can be good and bad depends on point of view but overall a safe place to stay.

Better security now. Owners who have more than 1 car might need to park outside at the roadside.

This apartment is about 2km from midfield. From North South highway, you can see it. It is located opposite bandar Malaysia air force airport. I see huge potential here.

Not too happy with their workmanship and built quality for such a high end condo. Well, it is by Monoland after all, what should be expected!
