With accessibility to offices, banks, restaurants and shopping malls, Bukit Ceylon is a mature residential neighbourhood in the Golden Triangle of Kuala Lumpur.
It's bordered by Bukit Bintang and Raja Chulan and is known for its bungalows with sprawling grounds, high-rise developments, and boutique restaurants that hum with life in the evenings.
One of the more recognisable commercial developments in the area, The Weld in Jalan Raja Chulan was a supermarket in the 1960s. It has since had a facelift and was transformed into a food and beverage hub for residents in Bukit Ceylon.
Old Malaya in Jalan Raja Chulan is another iconic landmark in the area. It was built in 1919 and still has its colonial façade. It now hosts trendy restaurants and bars with unobstructed views of KL Tower and the city.
Other noteworthy buildings are Lanson Place Bukit Ceylon Serviced Residences and the St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, which was built in 1918.
“Perched on top of the hill is a bungalow that belongs to the Tee Teh family,” Laurelcap Sdn Bhd director Stanley Toh says. “Other prominent landmarks include Italian restaurant Nerovivo, Suasana Bukit Ceylon and Laman Ceylon. Though once a slum and notorious for gangsters, Bukit Ceylon has been transformed into a high-end address sought by the wealthy.”
