Petaling Jaya and Subang Jaya – better known as PJ and SJ – are two cities in west Kuala Lumpur where you’re sure to have some real city fun. You’ll be licking your fingers clean at an exotic Indian restaurant before hitting one of the best Kuala Lumpur shopping malls or plunging down an extreme waterslide at Sunway Lagoon. Our Petaling Jaya/Subang hotels have it all and more!
Most travellers will have two uncontrollable urges while on holiday, to eat and to shop. You won’t have to worry about these at all in Petaling Jaya and Subang, because the locals are just as obsessed with food as you are. No matter what time it is you’ll be able to grab a hearty meal.
You can dig into the rich flavours of curries, noodles and roti dips at Mamak stalls, tuck into the special local fried chicken, or even make a toast to your holiday at T.G.I. Friday’s. You won’t be running out of options in a hurry, but what to do to burn away all that you’ve enjoyed? Shopping may not sound like exercise, but with the list of malls in Petaling Jaya alone, you’ll walk off even the naughtiest of meals. Sunway Pyramid Megamall is a real eye-opener on the outside and inside. Its centre is constructed as a large pyramid with a sphinx sculpture, and inside you’ll find shop after shop of the top brands. But if you want a mall with everything your heart desires, go for the enormous Tropicana City Mall, which has everything from branded boutiques to a modern six-screen luxury cinema.
When you’ve reached your shopping and eating limit, the long list of adventures at Sunway Lagoon will keep the smile on anyone’s face. Choose between an amusement park with rollercoasters, a water park with high-speed slides and the world’s largest wave pool, an extreme park where you can challenge your friends to a paintball match, and much more.
The best thing about PJ and SJ is that they offer all this excitement and modern attractions while making you feel like a local. Make yourself at home with a pick from our Petaling Jaya/Subang accommodation list, followed by a flight to Malaysia to get you there.
