Nilai, Seremban · 4 hotels available
Perindustrian Nilai is an industrial park located in the town of Nilai, state of Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia. It is approximately 4 kilometres away from Nilai and 25 kilometres from the state capital, Seremban. The park was built as a part of the development efforts in Nilai that have seen a lot of works ongoing to bring life to the place, considering the town’s close proximity to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). Initially, a lot of factory buildings have been constructed in the area to attract companies and manufacturers to bring their businesses here. However, the response is not that good, hence a lot of factory buildings are left empty and unfilled. In order to fully utilize the vacant buildings, the park was then leased for use as a warehouse for clothing, electrical appliances, antiques and toys. Nowadays, the area is much more popular due to its abundance of choice of clothes and fabrics that can be purchased for festive seasons, being known as Nilai 3 and Nilai 1 among the locals. The reputation is building up to a level that almost tops Tangkak’s reputation as the city of fabric, with an advantage being that it is much closer to Kuala Lumpur too.
