Nilai as a potential home?

nilaiI think if you are close to retirement age and has been working and staying nearby KL city centre, this is not something for serious consideration. However for those who have  started working for a few years and is now looking for a spacious home in an area which is already well connected? Note though that the driving duration may be an extra 30 minutes to reach KL city centre. Yes, extra 30 minutes because even if you stay somewhere nearer, you would still need to drive 10 minutes to reach KL city centre anyway.  There’s an article about Nilai in NST.  My first encounter with Nilai was way back in 1998 and a later my brother-in-law studied there for a few years. During his time, he had to eat nasi lemak nearly every other day because there were not many choices. In fact there were only students, students and students. According to the article, Nilai has the following today:

Road access:

1) North-South Highway

2) The Kajang-Seremban Highway

3) Maju Expressway

4) ELITE

5) Nilai KLIA Highway

6) Lebuhraya Damansara Puchong

7) South Klang Valley Expressway
