Default What community to rent in: KL?

I'm Canadian and have been living in Bangkok for 13 years.
My wife is Singaporean and has recently been relocated to KL.
We're starting to look at apartments to rent and am hoping Forum members can suggest the best area to live in?
Her office is at Damansara Utama, and we've been recommended to rent at:
1) Mont Kiara
2) Bangsar
3) Sri Hartamas
4) Damansara

While we enjoy safety and modern things, we love local food, street-side dining and don't want to live in a 'foreigner-only' area.

Many thanks for your advice/recommendations!

Scott

I think Hartamas and Bangsar would offer the best of local food options. IMO, MK offers the least exciting options in terms of local food and is very 'expaty'. Bangsar offers a good mix of long term local residents and foreigners and the lucky garden area has great food options.

Hello Scott,

I recommend Valencia which is a gated and guarded resort area. It has a 9 hole golf course, pool, clubhouse etc. It’s a really nice area with a mixture of local and expats.

Best Regards

Mike
