"The Golf Course and how People Live in a Mine" Kuala Lumpur Off The Beaten Path Tip by Kakapo2

Kuala Lumpur Off The Beaten Path: 280 reviews and 507 photos

  No palace but an apartment block. Plus golf course
by Kakapo2

Here you see a view of the golf course of the Mines Resort & Golf Club. I wondered what kind of attraction the huge building across the lake was. My driver said it is a normal apartment block in a nice area with well, a nice view :-) Another one of the serviced apartment buildings is listed as Heritage Apartments.

The lake and the developing city are located south of the city, in Seri Sembangan, Selangor. The apartment buildings, shopping centres, a convention centre, hotels, resorts and parks are now connected by a canal.

The rejuvenation process of the former tin mines began in 1988, and with one exception the whole development lies in the hands of one developer, so all buildings and other features blend into the entitiy of the project. The landscaping project started with the golf course. The second stage of the development was initiated in 2003.
