Safety and the law
Bandar Sunway and the surrounding Subang Jaya area are generally safe. However, you should always use common sense and take general safety precautions, such as:
- be aware of pickpockets in crowded areas
- exercise caution with touts
- walk facing oncoming traffic
- avoid areas without many people.
Malaysia has very strict laws on drug possession and trafficking – the death penalty applies in the most serious cases. Also, driving under the influence of alcohol is a serious offence, and police breathalyser tests are common.
Sunway campus buildings are disability friendly and our Student Services unit includes disability liaison and support staff.
In Bandar Sunway, tap water is generally drinkable, but you should drink bottled water whenever possible.
Heat exhaustion is rare, but remember to consume lots of fluids, wear a hat (or carry an umbrella) and apply sunscreen.
Hawker (street or stall) food is popular in Malaysia, but exercise caution when choosing where to eat.
