5 things to do in Selangor - Something for everyone

Selangor is the most densely populated State in Malaysia. The high population also means there is plenty to do here, whether you are travelling solo, as a couple, a group, or family.



i-City is among the most popular attractions for the entire family. It is a good way to beat the heat of the day, as you can cool off in the Snowalk - the indoor snow park. There are snowmen, ice houses, and even bobsled rides available. The place also has plenty of rides including a Ferris wheel.


Sunway Lagoon

Sunway Lagoon is extremely popular in the Southeast Asian region as the top theme park that everyone must visit. In fact, just as Somerset Damansara Uptown Petaling Jaya takes the cake as one of the best serviced apartments in Petaling Jaya Malaysia, Sunway Lagoon is considered the best there is in the entirety of Asia. There is a waterpark, an amusement park, an extreme adventure park, a wildlife park, and a park that is creatively titled the "Scream Park". Whether you are travelling with family or friends, this is a place to have a lot of fun.


Zoo Negara

Zoo Negara is the largest zoo in Malaysia and is spread over 100 acres. There are close to 500 species of animals in Zoo Negara and over 5000 creatures. You will find all classes of animals here, from mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fish to birds. As they believe in giving animals their freedom, the zoo has an open air concept. Some of the more popular parts of the zoo are Children's World - a petting zoo for children with photo opportunities available, Amphitheatre - where sea lions and macaws perform every day, the Penguin House, the Reptile House, and the Bee Museum.


Crab Island

Crab Island, locally known as Pulau Ketam, is a popular destination among couples and families. It is a place of natural beauty where mangrove forests are the norm. There are plenty of creatures to see here from crabs to other crustaceans. The people of the island live on homes built on stilts that hover over the muddy plains. It is a good way to connect with your companions as you have to take a boat, walk, or cycle if you want to get from point A to point B. There is no way to drive here as the ground is too muddy for any form of construction.


Klang Gates Quartz Ridge

If you are a fan of nature and the wilderness this would be right up your alley. Locally known as Bukit Tabur, this is considered to be the largest pure quartz dyke to be found anywhere in the world. It is 14km in length and has a great hiking trail to the top. The trail is not too long or challenging and can be done even by those with less experience. You will be rewarded with amazing views as on one side you see the city in all its glory while on the other is the forest broken only by the gleaming waters of the reservoir.
