Tourist Guide

Welcome to Petaling Jaya, Malaysia! We’ve made this guide just for our agents visiting Petaling Jaya 🙂

Petaling Jaya (or PJ, like how locals call it), is a major city in Malaysia originally developed as a satellite township for Kuala Lumpur, with just about 15 km away (10 – 15 mins). Located in the Selangor state, with an area of 97.2 square kilometers and over 200,000 properties with over 600,000 in total population. Petaling Jaya was given the city status in 2006 and is known as the leading growth centre in Selangor. The city is characterized by its most popular landmark, Kota Darul Ehsan. This is an arch that is the boundary between PJ and Kuala Lumpur (did you notice it in our Anomaly logo design? 😉 ). Petaling Jaya has a wide selection of shopping malls, including Sunway Pyramid, 1Utama, The Curve, Tropicana City Mall, Paradigm Mall, and still a lot more! And yes, most of these malls do have portals 😉 Check our UPV guide for malls with portal clusters.
