Leisure and Entertainment
Bandar Sunway has a number of accommodation options for tourists and business travellers.
Sunway Pyramid is a shopping centre opened in July 1997 as Malaysia's first themed shopping and entertainment mall. One of the mall's most easily recognised designs is the Egyptian-inspired Pyramid with a lion "standing guard" at the entrance. The rest of the building is embellished in the monumental style, complete with pseudo-hieroglyphics decorating facades, along with numerous Pharonic statuaries.
Sunway Pyramid is also one of the only shopping malls in Malaysia to have an indoor ice skating rink.
In the center of Bandar Sunway is the amusement park Sunway Lagoon, which has many different themed parks, including some of the biggest rides in Malaysia and a large water park.
Bandar Sunway has also become known as a higher education hub, with two large universities in the area, namely Monash University, and Sunway University, as well as other private colleges such as Sunway College and The One Academy, an accomplished art college that won the ADreline awards for 2006. There are other notable schools in Bandar Sunway which are SK Bandar Sunway, SMK Bandar Sunway and Sunway International School.
Bandar Sunway includes many other companies and residences not owned by the Sunway group. Places of worship include Masjid Al-Husna, which is located just opposite Sunway Pyramid and Masjid Al-Amin, which is situated near Masjid Al-Husna.
Bandar Sunway is well-connected to the cities of Kuala Lumpur, Shah Alam, Subang Jaya, Petaling Jaya and Klang via a network of highways, namely the Federal Highway, the Shah Alam Expressway (KESAS), the New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE), the New Pantai Expressway (NPE), the North-South Expressway Central Link (ELITE) and the Damansara-Puchong Expressway (LDP). The township is also served by an urban-suburb rail link, the Subang Jaya Komuter station.
Sunway Monorail also operated in Bandar Sunway from 2000 to 2007. The system has since been shut down due to the expansion of the Sunway Pyramid 2.
