Bustling Township of Subang Jaya
The Evolution of Subang Jaya :–
Subang Jaya was developed from an old rubber estate (Seafield Estate) by Sime Darby as a residential township in 1974. Thanks to the old Subang International Airport (Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport), which was replaced by KLIA as the main international airport in Malaysia, most people knew Subang back then.
The airport has now been renamed Subang Skypark, focusing primarily on handling domestic flights and acting as Southeast Asia’s leading hub for corporate and private aviation.
Over the past 30 years, the city has grown rapidly with a current population of more than 700,000. It began primarily as a residential city, but it has evolved into an internationally renowned city in recent years. It is also referred to as the Klang Valley’s largest educational centre, as there are a wide range of colleges, universities, and schools. There has been a large influx of students from abroad over the years.
The Subang Jaya Medical Center (SJMC),one of the leading private medical centers in the country, is located in SS12.
What is in Subang Jaya :-

The neighbouring township of Bandar Sunway has Monash University, The One Academy, Sunway University College, and Taylor’s University College. While in USJ, there’s SEGi University College.
People often look for big cities like Kuala Lumpur and Damansara when it comes to food hunting in the Klang Valley. While these cities offer some of Malaysia’s best food, there are also many restaurants that deserve your attention in smaller cities like Subang Jaya.
In Subang Jaya, you will never go hungry!
Subang Jaya has a lot of stores, stalls, street food and hungry food trucks to choose from. You can’t cover everything, but there are some of the favorite restaurants to get you started.
It is well known for the lively community of cafes.
With so many universities in the area, the crowd is young, which helped shape the new food places and indirectly attract businesses that cater to a generation that loves to be seen in trendy shops. The current bubble tea craze has also turned Subang Jaya into a hot spot. Several new bubble tea joints from Taiwan and Hong Kong have opened in the last few months in SS15, earning it the bubble tea street moniker.
The iconic Subang Parade, the first shopping mall in Subang Jaya, is one of the most prominent landmarks in the city. The trendy Empire Shopping Gallery is located next door, where tourists from areas like Bangsar and Ampang frequently stop for a fast cuppa. There is also a wide selection of hypermarkets, shopping and dining facilities in the area. Sunway Pyramid is one of the main shopping destinations in the Klang Valley in neighboring Bandar Sunway. The newly renovated The Summit USJ is another notable location. Completed in 1998, the freehold mixed – use development is one of Subang Jaya’s oldest landmarks. Da Men, a shopping center with restaurants and tenants such as Jaya Grocer and Popular Bookstore, is located next to The Summit USJ.
The commercial properties, facilities and connectivity of Subang Jaya have catapulted it into today’s busy neighborhood. The city is connected to highways such as Federal Highway, New Pantai Expressway, Lebuhraya Shah Alam, Lebuhraya Damansara-Puchong, and Central Link North-South Expressway. The Subang Jaya to Kelana Jaya light rail transit (LRT) extension line was completed in 2017 and included SS15, SS18, USJ and USJ 10 stations.
After years of transformation, properties in Subang Jaya are currently one of the highest sought in Klang Valley. Well, you might be thinking that investing a property in such booming area is difficult and most likely to be a little bit steep on price. In fact, IT’S NOT HARD at all.
