Where to Stay?

For those joining Gapture Malaysia from out-station or other countries.  Here are some tips in finding a place to stay.

Gapture Malaysia is located in Petaling Jaya, adjoining city of Kuala Lumpur.  Petaling Jaya and Kuala Lumpur are some of the principal cities within Klang Valley.  Traveling from any point in Petaling Jaya to any point in Kuala Lumpur during off-peak hours are usually within 30 minutes by car.

Our office is on the 18th floor of a commercial building, called Menara PJX (HM Shah Tower).  We are merely 3-minute walk from Taman Jaya LRT station (Kelana Jaya LRT line).  We strongly recommend you to commute to work by LRT, unless your role in the company requires you to drive to meet prospects or clients.

For easy commute using LRT, you may search for any place that is within 10-minute walking distance from any stations along Kelana Jaya LRT line.  Any stations between Setiawangsa LRT station and Kelana Jaya LRT station (the last station on Kelana Jaya LRT line) are good choices.  However, you may still go for any LRT stations on any other LRT Lines, because most of them interchanged at KL Sentral Station.  Click for full MRT/LRT/Monorail/Train Route in Klang Valley.

You may use Google Map to check the walking distance from the place that you are considering to the nearest LRT station.  Anything more than 200 meters could be a bit too far to walk given the temperature and humidity in Malaysia.  Note that the travelling time from station to station on Google Map is not accurate.

Here are some popular property portals in Malaysia.  In case you need to enter city and state to filter out the properties, Kuala Lumpur is under Wilayah Persekutuan (you may see Kuala Lumpur as a selection in the list of states) and Petaling Jaya/Kelana Jaya is under the state of Selangor.

You may look for a single room in landed properties or a high-rise apartments and condominiums.  Monthly rental starts from RM500, which is around USD120.
