Petaling Jaya

Water Parks · Shopping Malls · Entertainment Centers
First established in 1952 and since swallowed up by the urban sprawl of Kuala Lumpur, you can now hardly distinguish Petaling Jaya from the ever-growing Malaysian capital. However, with properly planned streets--unlike the more haphazardly arranged Kuala Lumpur--and a full range of amenities, Petaling Jaya is a city in its own right. More than 600,000 people call it home, with many of them making the daily commute to central Kuala Lumpur for work. You won't find a whole bunch of particularly amazing places to visit in Petaling Jaya, but if you want to get a taste of real Malaysian life in the suburbs, it could be what you're after. Use our Malaysia attractions website to arrange your visit to Petaling Jaya and any other destinations in Malaysia that take your fancy.

Where to stay in Petaling Jaya

Petaling Jaya is just far enough away from central Kuala Lumpur to be more affordable and less crowded, but still well connected enough to make traveling a breeze. You can find plenty of mid-range hotels, as well as some luxurious options, although not much in the way of low-budget accommodations. Make sure to look for something close to an LRT (rapid transit) station for easy access into central Kuala Lumpur. If none of the accommodations in Petaling Jaya suit your taste, simply stay in Kuala Lumpur proper; excellent public transport connections make the commute simple and quick.
