Facts and Highlights of Sunway City Kuala Lumpur Experience
Sunway City is the first fully integrated township of Malaysia. It was said that the location of Sunway City used to be a mining land. After the termination of operations and being unused for a span of time, the property was cleverly converted and developed to a township-complex comprised of condominiums, office towers, educational facilities, commercial centre and hotels. A lagoon-style resort/theme park with a man-made body of water was built at the centre, being the deepest part. This is the Sunway Lagoon Malaysia that we are enjoying today.
