Want to Avoid KL? Here Are 5 Nearby Townships with Lots of Job Opportunities



Kuala Lumpur and its satellite towns are part of a larger area called the Klang Valley. Although KL is a great place to work, there are other places which you can also consider. These alternative Klang Valley locations are great for starting your career, or continuing to greater heights.


These satellite towns are within driving distance to KL, and most are self contained, with a complete set of amenities so that you won’t have to leave the township for basic necessities. Here are some of the best towns around KL to work in, in no particular order:


1.Petaling Jaya  

Often called PJ by the locals, this township began as a humble suburb in the 1950s on 1200 acres of rubber estate. Over time, more and more neighborhoods were built and today, PJ is a large municipality with more than 650,000 residents. The entire area is divided into sections and most have easy access to hospitals, schools, shopping malls, eateries and much more. PJ residents are mostly middle class and well educated, and there are many apartments and landed properties available in this area to choose from. Another great thing about PJ is the abundance of public transport in the form of trains like the LRT to many key destinations.


  1. Shah Alam

    Shah Alam is the administrative capital of the state of Selangor and can be reached via the Federal Highway from Kuala Lumpur. Apart from this highway, Shah Alam is also easily accessible via the New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE), Shah Alam Expressway (KESAS) and several others. One of the largest stadiums in Selangor is here, namely Stadium Melawati, as well as a water park called Wet World Shah Alam which is an ideal place to relax and unwind on the weekends. Another place you and your loved ones can visit is iCity, a theme park with its own ice and snow walk.klang1

  2. Klang

    Believe it or not, Klang has been a human settlement since prehistoric times, due to its close proximity to a river mouth that is today is the site of Port Klang, an international import and export hub. Klang is also famous for its Bak Kut Teh, a type of hearty stew. Klang also has many modern malls like Aeon Bukit Tinggi and Klang Parade, as well as plenty of hospitals including Hospital Tengku Ampuan Rahimah.

  3. Subang Jaya

    Subang Jaya is one of the youngest townships in the Klang Valley and was developed as a suburb to cater to the ever expanding population that was spilling over from Petaling Jaya. Today Subang Jaya is a hub of activity, mostly related to youth culture. This is because there are many private colleges here, and Subang Jaya’s SS15 is a hub of hipster cafes, dapper fashion outlets and experimental cuisine. There are also many industrial areas like the Sime UEP Industrial Park and Subang Hi-Tech Industrial Park that encompasses both light and heavy industries.


No matter where you choose to work in the Klang Valley, you’ll definitely find satisfaction in your experiences, as all these places have new and exciting things to offer.
