Koreans find green pastures in Ampang
There is an estimated 5,000 Koreans living in Malaysia, many of whom are expatriates working in Korean companies all around the country.
To support the needs of the expatriates, a small corner of Ampang - right on the border separating Kuala Lumpur and Selangor - has been turned into a 'little Korea'.
Here, Korean-owned businesses have mushroomed mini-markets retailing Korean delicacies, restaurants, bars, hair and beauty salons, travel agencies, to name a few.
Our Korean intern, Rhee Hyun Ah explores Ampang in search of her compatriots.

Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
