  • Nightlife in Telawi

    Nightlife in Telawi is so far ranked as number one in the Muddy Estuary. Most Lumpurese love Telawian cultures because it has the atmosphere akin to London or perhaps other big cities. I am not a good kaki nightlife, I don't want to say too much but I enjoy looking at the atmosphere of Telawian nightlife.

    If you don't have any mode of transports while in Klang Valley, opt for the Putra LRT. You can go from Kelana Jaya, as far as to Gombak, where the buses to Genting Highlands are departing from.

    From Kelana Jaya LRT station, there's a free feeder bus service to take you to AND from The Curve / Ikano (these are in brackets because they're opposite of each other). You can also go to Sunway Pyramid from the same station. There's sort of a bus station right beneath the LRT stop upstairs.

    Kuala Lumpur Rail Transit System The rate fares for LRT rides.

Damansara Local Customs

  • Hindu temple

    Before I leave the temple, I take a last snap atthe big head guard to show to VT. From this picture, I noticed the hand is holding some mace-like thing downwards and I noticed also the mouth has teeth coming out, quite like dracula but of course this is a Hindu godliness figure nothing to do with that.

  • Hindu temple

Damansara Warnings and Dangers

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Visiting Telawi may be fun but each time when I want to leave, it is a torment. This warning tip is for car owner when parking under the hot sun where the temperature inside the car rise up to nearly 60 Celsius. If you did not aware but sit in straight away, hahaha. You will be inflamed and burned. What I do is to open all the doors to let the overheated air come out. This is a warning.

Damansara Tourist Traps

    by babysab Updated Jul 20, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The moment you get inside a taxi, make sure the taxi driver switched on his travel meter, or whatever you call it. If he doesn't, insist for it to be switched on. Otherwise he'll charge you any amount as he likes. And that usually means more than what you have to pay! If the taxi driver ignores your request, advisable if you just hail another taxi that comes your way.

    Don't worry, KL and Selangor alone have almost more than 1000 taxis!

    Unique Suggestions: Insist for the driver to turn on his cab meter to make your journey safer and please take note of the driver's three digit identification numbers plastered to his front window - useful if you wish to make a report / complaint / compliment to the taxi drivers' association, or the company that he works for.

    http://www.mycen.com.my/search/taxi.html

    Fun Alternatives: If you are travelling during the day, why not take the Putra LRT? You can go from Sunway to as far as Gombak! No attractions in Gombak, but useful if you are going to Genting Highlands. Else, there are also buses going around the cities, STAR LRT, the KL Monorail, or even the train by KTMB or if you have a friend here in the city, this is the time when you can ask them to take a day or two off from work and take you around the city!

Damansara Favorites

  • Silk shop

    Silk shop is a silk shop, that's all. I'm not here to sell silk nor advestise this shop. I don't have any responsibility doing such work, just entertainment for my own as tip.

  • Imperial culture

    Imperial culture is available in a big shop here selling mostly furniture of the imperial quality. Tourists if rich enough might want to buy some big emperor chairs table beds etc to place it at home to have fun. You also need some 100 servants to look after these furniture, otherwise your imperialility may not look as grandiose as your ancestors.
