Mont Kiara: K.Ls Global Condominium Township
by: Sophia

Mont Kiara is a suburb located within Kuala Lumpur . It is conveniently situated next to Sri Hartamas, thus putting it in the heart of Klang Valley . Similarly to its neighbour, Mont Kiara has easy access to the three major expressways that connects the surrounding districts to the city centre. The New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE), the Sprint Expressway and the Damansara-Puchong Expressway (LDP) are all easily accessible from Mont Kiara and the Sprint Expressway enables road travellers to access the Penchala Link and the Kerinchi Link as well. With the introduction of these two fairly new highways, travel time to Bandar Utama, Mutiara Damansara, Bangsar and Kuala Lumpur has been cut down to just 10 minutes.

The success of Mont Kiara stems largely from its concept of being a global condominium township. It is the first of its kind in Malaysia . Its strategic location and the wide range of facilities and services nearby attract both the upper class Malaysian and the expatriate community. Its large expatriate population contributes to the growth as well as the quality of the township. With over 30 nationalities gracing the streets of Mont Kiara, visitors and residents will immediately feel the world at their fingertips. The area is known for its large population of Japanese and Korean expatriates and with such numbers it would come as no surprise that there is an abundance of Japanese and Korean restaurants and stores to cater to their needs.

Plaza Mont Kiara is the main business hub in Mont Kiara. The Sunrise offices are home to many offices, dining outlets and other facilities. The draw of this area is its full broadband service that caters to both the surrounding residents and businesses. One can easily access the internet while sipping a cup of coffee at Starbucks or while biting down on a Big Mac. It is at this area that the Mont Kiara Funday is held every Sunday. The weekly flea market exhibits a wide variety of items such as arts and crafts, antiques, apparels and accessories, pets, toys, food and fruits, plants, ornaments, household items and many other fascinating things. Alternatively, the night market is held every Thursday with a similar spread.

With its large population of expatriates, it is only natural for Mont Kiara to be furnished with two international schools, Garden International School and Mont’Kiara International School. There are also other schools nearby such as Sri Hartamas Secondary School , Bukit Damansara Primary School and Sri Cempaka private school. Other amenities within the vicinity includes a police station located in the centre of Mont Kiara and a fire station in the neighbouring area of Sri Hartamas.

Due to its massive expatriate community, Mont Kiara is a place that radiates an aura unlike the Malaysian culture. The area has a very sophisticated feel to it and the residents contribute by bringing a piece of their world to this global condominium township called Mont Kiara in Kuala Lumpur .
