WC 2007 Venue
OK ppl, as u know, the venue is the Putra Stadium, within Bukit Jalil National Sports Complex. What most ppl don't know is that the Putra Stadium is way off the edge of the complex's main entrance (from Sri Petaling). And yes, it is totally hidden from view from the main roads.
Best approach is to enter via the Bukit Jalil Sports School. From KL - Seremban H'way (E2), turn towards Astro/TPM/Bukit Jalil road, make a u-turn at TPM, go back the other way until you find the entrance to BJSS beside the road. Closest car parks to the Stadium are Car Parks D & E.
From PJ/Shah Alam/Sunway/Puchong, from Sunway, use the Puchong - Bukit Jalil h'way all the way to BJSS. Or u can use KESAS H'way (E5), after Awan Besar toll plaza, exit and turn right towards Bukit Jalil, continue straight ahead, and then turn left to merge to Puchong - Bukit Jalil h'way.
I do not recommend coming in from Sri Petaling/Commonwealth Games Village, u might be stuck in a jam due to construction, bad road surface and volume of cars. Also, those using LRT will have to walk almost 2 kms to reach the Putra Stadium on the other side of the complex.

ok... i've been der many many times for national championship (not badminton and which my team was a national champ )... the std. is great.. its really big can the seating capacity is large.. cant imagine when a full seated std. shouting MALAYSIA BOLEH!!!!
star lrt takes u straight to the area... i stayed in ampang area when i went last month and i took for ampang station to another station (4gotten the name) then change platform to go start to BUKIT JALIL STATION.
then when u got out, go up few flight of stairs (outside the station) then turn to the left and go straight.. during that walk, u will see the cafeteria, food stalls, the swimming venue on the left and the track and field, football stadium is on the right... just go straight and the stadium putra is just in front of u... in fact, u will be able to see the stadium once u turn to the left after going up the stairs.. if u scared lost or dun know or lost, u can check out the big signboard/map of the area after u got up from the flight of stairs...

Definitely not 2 km. A few hundred metres is my estimate.

15 minutes walk, huh? Ok, then I suppose the distance using those "interior paths" is 1 km. Old guy like me would normally would like to avoid climbing stairs, so I would prefer the longer way around the National Stadium thru the carparks. Sort of a "victory lap" .
BTW, r u driving or not? If u are, there could be many cars on road during WC events, this I based on my Thomas Cup experiences. And there's the Champions Youth Cup football event semis and final running simultaneously at the National Stadium .....
Once my car is parked, best u can get is for me to give u directions.

If you don't mind taking the MRT (train), there's a station at the airport (Terminal 2) and also at Orchard. But only if you don't have a lot to carry. If there are 3 or 4 of you, take the cab.
