Bangsar Overview


Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

PropSocial's Review





Bangsar is usually described as an eclectic neighbourhood, great for people and car watching, an ever changing cafe/restaurant scene with an equally interesting mix of properties.

Coming from its rubber plantation origins, Bangsar (or Bunge-Grisar as it was known in the 1950s) has evolved to be a much sought after residential and commercial area. The area was developed in the mid 1960s with single storey terraced houses, and today it is packed tightly with the original built houses, large bungalows and many high-rises. Recent years have also seen large sized apartments being built in Bangar to cater to those who have moved into apartment type dwellings for security reasons. New developments usually sell quickly, due to the scarcity of new land parcels for development. Real estate negotiators are confident that property prices remain stable for the area.

Bangsar is well known for it’s Jalan Telawi area, which houses the Bangsar Village mall, and an eclectic mix of restaurants, bars, and cafes offering an ever- evolving menu of cuisine types. On the opposite side of the spectrum, Lucky Garden in Bangsar is home to both a night and morning market, local kopitiams, chinese medicine hall and a selection of food stalls and food trucks selling local food at affordable prices.

Bangsar has multiple shopping complexes including Bangsar Village I & II, Bangsar Shopping Centre, Telawi Square, KL Eco Mall, Gardens, and Mid Valley. Bangsar also houses multiple clinics, dentists, aestheticians, and Pantai Hospital. Parents can also find preschools and kindergartens in the neighbourhood and will only have to go to the next suburb for higher education options.

Perhaps surprisingly for a small urban location, Bangsar has a few walking routes as well as urban parks for those who need a break from the bustle. Kebun Kebun Bangsar is an urban farm open to the public, home to cows, ducks, and peacocks among others.

Bangsar is very well connected to other parts of the city, with quite a few exit routes. There are also 2 MRT stations available. Traffic congestion is the norm, given its small geographical make up and diverse population.

Traffic and parking here is a nightmare. But there are a lot of eateries around Jalan Telawi.
