The General Hospital of Kuala Lumpur is also only 4 kilometres away and the Columbia Asia Hospital at less than 2 kilometres.
Setapak, An Established Suburb
In recent years, upscale shopping malls were established in Setapak to support the activities in this vicinity - namely Wangsa Walk mall and Setapak Sentral mall. With the upcoming integrated-development projects in Setapak, this will create not only commercial activities but also job opportunities in Setapak.
