Living in Bangsar South is convenient for both drivers and non-drivers. This is because the roads connecting to the area easily lead to other towns such as Kuala Lumpur City Centre, Bangsar, KL Eco City and many more. Not only that, but non-drivers will also find public transport easily accessible. There are buses and even LRT stations nearby such as the KL Gateway and Kerinchi station.

Just around the corner is a small mall called KL Gateway which has an anchor hypermarket brand and various food options. The mall also connects directly to KL Gateway LRT station. You can find some great coffee shops and bakeries within the mall. Thus, getting groceries, household items and food is never a hassle. Many locals and long-term tenants go to the city centre for work using the LRT because of its great transit hub. 


You can be assured of your safety and security as most of the properties in Bangsar South are usually gated and have security guards which limit easy access to your home. The crime level in the area is average. Still, the presence of security guards and visitor check-ins have greatly improved the security of the residential areas.
