Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Neighbourhood Review


Bukit Bintang which is also known as Starhill or Bintang Walk is perhaps the most exclusive area of Kuala Lumpur offering retail outlets, exclusive condominiums, serviced residences, entertainment outlets, hotels and plenty of other amenities.

Accessible via several forms of public transportation, the residential areas of Bukit Bintang includes units of houses from the pre-war times along Tengkat Tong Shin. In high contrast to these ancient homes, some of the city’s most exclusive residential developments such as Pavilion Residences and the serviced residences of Berjaya Times Square boasts its modernity by being literally built on top of its accompanying shopping outlets with direct connection to these entertainment centres.

With history having to make way for the new world, there have been some notable controversial issues where the most talked about one was the relocation of the historical Bukit Bintang Girl’s School which was moved to Cheras make way for Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, and was renamed to SMK Seri Bintang Utara.

As Bukit Bintang is located deep within the heart of Kuala Lumpur, this area faces constantly heavy traffic congestions which is further aggravated by the constructions of the upcoming MRT project which is scheduled to be begin its operations in 2016.
