An affluent suburb in KL has been listed as one of the world's coolest neighbourhoods to visit, alongside parts of New York, London, and Italy
Damansara Heights has been named as one of the world’s top 10 coolest neighbourhoods by experts at the popular travel magazine Lonely Planet.
In the list revealed last Friday, Damansara Heights, an affluent suburb situated in the western part of KL, is listed along with New York City’s Sunset Park district, London's Tooting area and Borgo San Frediano, in Florence, Italy.
The magazine said that the post-facelift, Jalan Batai has developed into a community-focused area with eateries and cosmopolitan conveniences
"Bangsar may be better known, but Damansara Heights has the buzz. One of the richest addresses in Kuala Lumpur, this neighbourhood has retained its personality despite its recent revitalisation," the magazine said.
Jalan Batai received a major facelift back in 2015 when many of its old tenants moved out to make way for a new mix of F&B outlets
Some of its current tenants include the swanky and upmarket Ben’s Independent Grocer (BIG), Yellow Brick Road, and Sitka, a European-style restaurant.
The other Asian neighbourhoods which made are Seongsu-dong, Seoul and Business Bay, Dubai
