PETALING JAYA: Which do you prize more? The hustle and bustle of a metropolis or the peace and tranquillity of the suburbs?
Despite the stereotype that single professionals are attracted to the bright lights of the big city or families escape to more laid-back neighbourhoods in the suburbs, technological advancements and societal shifts have spurred developers to create premium choices as diverse as Malaysians themselves.
Gone are the days when many headed into the office to get work done or downtown to run errands; today, popular hybrid or work-from-home options have changed the way people live.
With that in mind, newer developments are focusing on the evolving needs of the modern family, where the gap between satisfying access to urban amenities and the comfort of an affordable suburban retreat is being bridged.
Take the up-and-coming launch of Rimbawan Residency at De Centrum City in KL South for example.
Offering a serene lifestyle surrounded by nature, this development is still within close proximity to the city centre’s conveniences as it enjoys easy access to Kuala Lumpur, Petaling, Hulu Langat and Sepang, Putrajaya, Cyberjaya, KLIA, Port Klang, and even Nilai and Enstek in Negeri Sembilan.
For those looking for an ideal environment to live and work or raise a family, the growing list of surrounding attractions and amenities in and around De Centrum City clearly offers the best of both urban and suburban lifestyles.
The immediate surroundings of Protasco’s latest upscale development enables residents to enjoy both physical and mental well-being as they will be living within an environment with unique experiential attractions nearby.
Take Rimbawan Residences and its recreational escape forest, for instance. Children as well as the elderly will appreciate being closer to nature and immersing themselves in the many safe and active lifestyle options within the area.
Those who love hiking will enjoy easy access to various popular trails like Wawasan Hill Trails in nearby Puchong or the Putrajaya Wetlands Park. Prefer walking? You can visit any of the many amazing gardens in the area including:
- Friendship Gardens

Aside from Farm in the City, the Benua Equestrian Stables which is sited just next to De Centrum City offers an alternate, more healthy, challenging and fun way to get some exercise and enjoy the outdoors.
The Benua Equestrian Stables offers affordable horseback riding lessons from seven years old and above, or you can just enjoy a fun ride with family and friends on their picturesque trail of about 10km.
Adding to the other unique attractions in the vicinity, the popular Ladang Farm Fresh offers adventurous tours and tractor rides for an unforgettable experience whatever your age group.
The Acre meanwhile, is a restaurant serving farm-to-table meals in a picnic setting where diners can even interact with the farm animals there.
Children will be ecstatic to discover the Bangi Wonderland Theme Park right in their backyard, offering a fantastic way to celebrate birthdays or even a weekend getaway with the family.
Another attraction is the many golf clubs in the vicinity like the ILSAS Recreational Golf Club, Uniputra Golf Club or the Mines Resort Golf Club which are just minutes away.
Aside from outdoor activities, with the IOI City Mall expecting to be crowned the largest mall in Malaysia soon, an overflow of shopping and entertainment venues including DeCentrum Mall, The Mines, and Pavilion Bukit Jalil are sure to meet the demands of even the most discerning consumer.
