Aerial view of the Subang Jaya city centre from SS16.
Subang Jaya is a suburban city in Klang Valley, located across the state line of Selangor to the west of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It comprises SS12-SS19 in its central area, Bandar Sunway on the Northern end while USJ, Putra Heights and Batu Tiga on the Southern end. The city is a much sought after refuge for middle to upper class Malaysians.

Understand[edit]

In 1974, Subang Jaya was developed as a residential township from an old rubber estate (Seafield Estate) by Sime Darby. Back then, most people knew Subang due to the old Subang International Airport (Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport), which has been replaced by KLIA as Malaysia's main international airport. Now the airport has been renamed as Subang Skypark and it focuses mainly on servicing domestic flights and acts as the premier hub for corporate and private aviation in Southeast Asia.

The city has been growing rapidly in the last 30 years. It started primarily as a residential township, but in recent years it has developed into an internationally renowned city. It is also dubbed as the main education hub of Klang Valley, as there is a wide variety of colleges, universities and schools. Over the years, there has been a significant influx of overseas students.

UEP Subang Jaya (USJ) is a major residential township located at the southern part of Subang Jaya and was established in 1988. Subang Jaya and USJ are seperated by the infamous diamond interchange at Persiaran Kewajipan near the Kesas Highwway which usually causes commuters an additional 20-30 minutes per journey in their daily commute because of traffic congestion. The houses in USJ are newer as they were built in later years. The township is very vibrant due to many commercial activities and shopping malls. In recent years, there are many new commercial developments being focused in USJ to cater the township's high population of affluent residents.

Putra Heights is a small residential township located at the southern end of Subang Jaya and was developed by Sime UEP in 1999. The township can be easily spotted by its tall mountain known as Bukit Cermin. It consists of many different types of housing developments. The central part of the township comprises a few premier neighborhoods. On the other hand, Batu Tiga is a small industrial and low-cost residential suburb located near Shah Alam. It is usually mistaken as being in Shah Alam due to the lack of accessibility from the affluent Subang area. The industrial area comprises many international companies. In 2010, a bridge was built between USJ 3 and USJ Heights to provide an a better accessibility from central Subang to the area.
