All about Puchong

Activities in Puchong

Puchong is a busy town 20 minutes drive from Kuala Lumpur City centre.

It’s a rapidly developing since the last 10 years. As the place is new compared to older places like Kuala Lumpur, Cheras, Subang, or Petaling Jaya, many younger generations choose to settle here for its lower housing price.

My parents were one of them, they lived in Petaling Jaya and bought their first home here at Puchong in year 1992.

Puchong is connected to Kesas highway and LDP (Lebuhraya Damansara – Puchong), so it can lead you basically to everywhere.

Since most of the houses and development only exist after 1990, and we’re also known for a strict Majlis Bandaraya ( the MBSJ), most housing plans are tidy and neat. For example, larger lanes, that allow us to double park.

The MRT is also new so most MRT station provide car park space.

Puchong is huge, so when you tell your friends to meet in Puchong, you have to be specific of which part of Puchong. The five star in Puchong: (1) Bandar Puteri, (2) Puchong Jaya, (3) Puchong Batu 14, (4) Bukit Puchong, (5) the rest of Puchong / Puchong countryside / no landmark here, just share location and surprise them

We define how well developed is a spot in Puchong, by telling how many Starbucks and Economy rice (zap fan) stalls available in that area. If that place doesn’t have this both, you may have to wait 5-10 years for the place to “mature”

Bandar Puteri

This is the place where most fancy restaurants are located. Cafes, milk tea street, offices…

Puchong Jaya

Landmark: IOI Mall Puchong (the mall that had flash flood)

Boulevard Puchong

A major hot spot for MBSJ to tow your illegal parked vehicle away.

Their paid multi-floor car parks can be too dark, too creepy, or inconvenient, the puchong-ians are willing to risk RM300 summon.

Some also claimed that road on Boulevard Puchong is too wide and attractive to double park.

Kinrara

Landmark: Yak Chee Primary School

This could the oldest part in Puchong. This is also where I used to live.

Why I like this place: we can play golf here

Taman Perindustrian Puchong

This is an industrial area that is quite special we have an LRT station here, which is only 200meter away from the last stop, and 300m to the next stop.

You can also find a lot of “zap fan” and “kopitiam” here.

Wawasan Puchong

Hiking trail hides here.

There’s also Setia-Walk for the party go-er.

Puchong Perdana

These are the part you can understand why Puchong is so dense with residents. From this area onwards, housing projects are still going on and on.

Bukit Puchong

Landmark: Tesco Bukit Puchong

If they are giving out award on “Places with Most Traffic Lights”, Bukit Puchong is proudly nominated.

Putra Prima

The country side of Puchong. This is the part you truly believe, wow, Puchong is damn huge.

We practice golf here, at MOS golf academy.

This is the part of Puchong where Starbucks and Mcdonald’s still hesitating to set foot here.

Taman Mas Puchong

It is here when things starting to get mysterious.

But I do have many 30s friends who live here. Only living, entertainment activity is currently unavailable.

Puchong South

16 Sierra, developed by IOI Group, surrounded by tolls and highway. High end houses are normal here (branded developer). The place is not mature yet.

There’s more…
