Ever thought of moving to Mont Kiara? If you’re from the Land of the Morning Calm, you will definitely feel at home with the abundance of Korean culture present in this affluent Malaysian town, with the wide range of K-BBQ restaurants, foreigner-friendly international schools and Korean supermarts to cherry-pick from.

1. An array of Korean restaurants

When it comes to Korean food, Mont Kiara is popularly known as the K-Town of Kuala Lumpur. There will be something that tickles your fancy at every corner. From authentic Korean barbecue at Sae Ma Eul to fried chicken and beer at Chi Mac Bistro (or better known as Chimac in Korea) to bingsu that lives up to its name, you will have a variety of options to choose from.

2. The presence of international schools

For families with kids, rest assured that your children will be well taken care of at the nearby international schools such as the private Gardens International School and Mont Kiara International School, or you can choose to enroll them into Korean lessons at MyTeacher Languages.

3. The nearby golf course

Enjoy golf? Golf enthusiasts will not only appreciate how affordable the sport is in Malaysia, but also pleased with the myriad golf courses. What’s more, the prestigious TPC Kuala Lumpur (formerly known as KLGCC) is just a stone’s throw away. Go ahead and indulge in your inner Tiger Woods!

4. The accessibility to Korean supermarts

Fancy cooking a quick Korean meal at home? Head down to Freshan Korean grocer at 163 Retail Park for your Korean food essentials! Here, you don’t have to fly to Korea to enjoy a variety of imported Korean products including fresh food, instant noodles, snacks, sweets, drinks and daily necessities. A crowd favourite is the specially imported South Korea pear, strawberry (super large!) and grapes, as well as rice cakes, kimchi and pickled white radish.

In fact, you will love the other Korean supermarkets found all over Solaris Mont Kiara such as K Market and Kim’s Mart.

5. The quality of the health and wellness scene

Down with a fever? No worries- Jung’s Oriental Medical Clinic is around the corner in case of an emergency. Not only is it the first Korean clinic to be selected as an excellent international medical clinic, but it also has 20 years of experience in acupuncture, tuina treatment and herbal medicine.

We hope this article will make the process of settling down and living in Mont Kiara much easier. After all, having these Korean cultural staples within reach will surely cure any pesky bouts of homesickness. Annyeong!
