Puchong | About The City
20 years ago, Puchong was a typical sleepy Malaysian town. With just one main street lined by rows of two-storey shophouses, the Chinese settlers sold goods and services to the patrons in the oil-palm plantations, tin mines and rubber small holdings.
Today, Puchong is a thriving metropolis with a multi-racial population consisting of city-dwellers. Now effectively a suburb of the capital, it boasts two four-lane highways flanked by corporate offices, shopping malls and restaurants.
