Bandar Sunway is an extremely popular area of the Subang Jaya neighbourhood, boasting an attractive combination of great local amenities alongside excellent connectivity.
This vibrant suburb, sometimes known as Sunway City, was one of Malaysia’s first fully integrated townships, developed from 800 acres of former mining land by Sunway Property. Today it is a highly desirable and mature neighbourhood which boasts excellent urban amenities.
Property in the neighbourhood is comprised of older landed properties and a limited number of earlier Bandar Sunway apartment complexes alongside a growing number of middle and upper-class residences. These often high-rise developments are catering for the substantial demand for Bandar Sunway condo units, which make up as much of half of the local retail real estate. Sunway South Quay, Sunway Geo Residences, and Nautica Lakesuites Condo offer popular examples of the luxury apartment developments that form the foundation of the neighbourhood's residential market.
One of the area’s greatest draws is the renowned Sunway Pyramid mall. This large and busy shopping centre is instantly recognisable for its Egyptian-inspired golden pyramid and iconic lion design. Sunway Pyramid boasts a number of focused shopping areas, with a total footprint of over 400 million square feet, in which over 900 retail outlets can be found. It is also home to a wide number of F&B outlets and entertainment opportunities, including a TGV Cinema, karaoke venue, arcades, bowling, indoor archery, and its famous indoor ice rink. Recently completed Sunway GEO Avenue adds another dimension to Sunway City’s retail offering, providing a clean, spacious, and relaxing mall with a growing range of shops and dining opportunities.
Boosting the local entertainment offerings is the equally iconic Sunway Lagoon. This exciting theme park offers more than 80 attractions spread over nearly 90 acres, and is one of Malaysia’s most popular destinations for a family fun day out. The excitement is hosted across multiple themed parks, with the Water Park, Amusement Park, Wildlife Park, Extreme Park, Scream Park, and Nickelodeon Lost Lagoon all boasting a unique twist on their respective attractions.
More energetic and affordable entertainment can be found at the 3k Sports Complex, a popular local swimming complex that also boasts a gym and badminton courts for visitors. Outdoor activities can be enjoyed at the nearby Subang Ria Recreational Park, complete with jogging and walking tracks that circle the park’s central lake.
The neighbourhood has an excellent reputation as a haven for good food. Sunway Pyramid is itself home to a huge range of impressive eateries, from excellent Asian food to trendy cafes and dessert shops. The local food offering isn’t limited to this mega mall, with an impressive selection of dining found throughout the neighbourhood. Whether you’re after tasty burgers or fine dining Japanese food, you’ll find something for everyone in Bandar Sunway.
Bandar Sunway is also an area which has gained a stellar reputation as a centre of both quality education and healthcare. Alongside several local public schools, Bandar Sunway is home to Sunway International School, as well as higher learning institutions such as Monash University, Sunway University, and The One Academy art college. In addition to this respected educational offering, the neighbourhood boasts excellent access to world-class healthcare, with both Ramsay Sime Darby Health Centre Subang Jaya, popularly known as Subang Jaya Medical Centre (SJMC), and Sunway Medical Centre located within the neighbourhood.
Bandar Sunway is an extremely well-connected suburb, with excellent transport links both within the neighbourhood and to wider routes. The Bandar Sunway Canopy Walkway provides convenient connections between major universities and destinations such as Sunway Pyramid, while the free Sunway Shuttle Bus provides another transportation option linking the neighbourhood.
Sunway City’s strategic location beside major Klang Valley transport routes is another contributing factor to the area’s popularity. The New Pantai Expressway (NPE), Damansara-Puchong Expressway (LDP), Federal Highway, and Shah Alam Expressway (KESAS) are all extremely easy to access from Bandar Sunway, providing simple onward connections to other major routes such as the ELITE highway and New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE). These excellent highway links mean residents of Bandar Sunway can reach downtown KLCC in as little as 25 minutes. Bandar Sunway is equally well located for nearby airports, with Subang Skypark just 15 minutes’ drive, and the international hub of Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) just over half an hour’s drive to the south.
Bandar Sunway also enjoys relatively good connections via public transport, although is not served by any direct LRT or MRT route. The nearby Kelana Jaya LRT station and Setia Jaya KTM station both act as feeder hubs into Bandar Sunway, connected via the Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) Sunway Line. This dedicated bus service follows an exclusive elevated highway that connects destinations throughout Bandar Sunway and Subang Jaya.Read More
