Bandar Utama is a township located within the Damansara subdivision of the Petaling district in the state of Selangor, Malaysia. It is primarily a residential suburb, but is also home to the 1 Utama Shopping Centre.
Bandar Utama is roughly 1000 acres (4 km²) in size, and is divided into 12 sections ranging from BU1 to BU12. These sections are served by roads, e.g. Jalan BU2/5 where "Jalan" is a Malay word meaning road, BU2 is the section and 5 is the road number. Houses on one side of the road are numbered evenly, and the other side are numbered oddly, so one side of a road will consist of houses 2, 4, 6, 8 and so forth while the opposite will have houses numbered 1, 3, 5, 7 and so on.
A bridge over the Sprint Expressway joins the two parts of Bandar Utama, sections BU1 till BU10 and BU11 with BU12, which are separated by Sprint Expressway.
To go to Bandar Utama, via the northbound route of NKVE, you should see the Sony building (now known as 1 Tech Park) on your left, right after the toll plaza. Continue straight, all the way down until you see an intersection on your left leading to Damansara Jaya. Make a U-turn here and continue. Just before you see the toll booth again, go up the ramp on your left. At the traffic light you can opt to turn left to go to BU11/BU12 or to turn right to head to the BU1 till BU10.
If coming from the Lebuhraya Damansara-Puchong (LDP; in English, the Damansara-Puchong Expressway), look out for Taman Tun Dr Ismail on your left. When you see the intersection leading to it on your left, turn right instead towards the 1 Utama shopping centre, and Bandar Utama. If coming from the opposite direction, look out for the pink facade of One Utama on your left and turn left at the appropriate intersection.
