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.
