Most importantly, they should be paying attention to the cost of rent per month for an average house/apartment; it costs around $500. Other than that, one must also know about the excruciating traffic and the crowded curbs. Then, he or she could might also want to know people in the city are extremely friendly to the point that crimes rarely happen.

There are many facilities provided in the city. You can access to every city easily because Shah Alam are considered in the middle of the city. But, the house price in Shah Alam area is pricey. But it is understandable because it was called the next Kuala Lumpur though it might not true. all and all it is a great place to move.

transportation for them would have no issues as there as many buses and trains to take. They should also know there are multiple restaurants that sell delicious food and unique snacks and desserts. Shah Alam is the best place if they are moving.

Consider their financial budget as the living cost in this area is high. Perhaps the attraction this city offers include the various restaurants and malls that are very much close to one another that there would be no difficulties in finding these. Perhaps too, for this reason, the rental cost and the cost of travelling, in this context by public transport, is higher than these in other cities in Malaysia.

There are many benefits for the elderly such as free health check-ups. As for newborns, they are entitled to a certain amount of money as a gift from the government. The city is also clean and safe. There is a free shuttle bus that would pick passengers at certain areas to be dropped off at the train station.
