Old Klang Road, alternatively called Jalan Klang Lama is a rapidly developing area and one of the oldest roads in Kuala Lumpur. It was constructed by the British Federated Malay States in 1908, a significant part of Kuala Lumpur history as it was believed to be the only link connecting Port Klang to KL decades ago.
In the heart of famous commercial and retail hubs such as Bangsar, KL Sentral and Mid Valley, Old Klang Road is an area with tons of accessibility. Lifestyle enthusiasts and avid shoppers can take refuge in Pearl Point Shopping Malls and OUG Plaza. Pearl Point Shopping Mall is a 3-stories neighbourhood shopping paradise, boasting famous brands like Starbucks, Popular and Subway. OUG Plaza on the other hand is simpler and more inclined towards those who wish to shop for groceries and various things with Parkson and Giant. There is also Tesco and Pasaraya Sri Kota if you can’t find what you need at previously mentioned locations.
Multiple schools such as Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Taman Desa, Vikas International School and Sekolah Kebangsaan Seri Setia are available. Tertiary academic institutions by the name of Megatech College of Technology and Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) are nearby as well for those wishing to conduct their higher education in Old Klang.
The area also boasts an array of clinics from dental to medical. Examples include Wong Dental Surgery, Red Apple Dental Clinic, Klinik Hope, Medi Klinik Lee & Goh. For more serious injuries or sickness there is the Taman Desa Medical Centre on Jalan Desa.
Not one but three KTM stations are nearby and easy to access. They are:
- Jalan Templer KTM Station
- Petaling KTM Station
- Pantai Dalam KTM Station
Besides the 3 stations, Old Klang is also accessible through the New Pantai Expressway (NPE), Federal Highway, Kesas Highway, Damansara-Puchong Expressway (LDP), Maju Expressway, KL-Seremban Expressway and Sungai Besi Expressway. So if you have a car, it isn’t a problem.
