Nowadays, people know about Malaysia not only because of the fabulous city Kuala Lumpur but also many other tourism attracting places, one of which is Selangor.
The name Selangor /səˈlæŋə/ comes from an Arabic word meaning “a large fly”, which is one of the 13 states of Malaysia. It is located on the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia, next to Perak to the north, Pahang to the east, Negeri Sembilan to the south and Malacca Strait to the west.
If you are looking for a Selangor attraction for your trip, the list below may be helpful. I produce the list based on my own experience and reviews of people who have come to Selangor.
1. Batu Caves
Batu Caves is one of the must reach destinations if you are seeking a sacred and religious Selangor attraction. The tourism spot’s appeal is the caves, which can be reached after climbing more than 250 steps.
To visit Batu Caves, you are recommended It will take you at least 4 hours for cave expedition, so make sure you come to Batu Caves early enough to exit before the night fall.
The place’s beauty is impressive, and it will surely make your day in Selangor memorable. Visiting Batu Caves, you can admire the spectacular sights of mountains, caves, waterfalls and tropical floral and fauna. The caves are Hindu temple in the mountains, which I’m sure you can see in few places in the world.
2. Sunway Lagoon Theme Park
It’s such a pity if you don’t spend some time in the incredible park. 2. Sunway Lagoon Theme Park attracts over 2 million visitors from all over the world each year. It’s an ideal place to have some wonderful time with your loved ones.
Sunway Lagoon Theme Park has one of the world’s largest man-made beach. You can find almost every wet and dry rides in the park. I have tried the giant water slides, lagoon express, and twin speed slides. The experience is fantastic, and I dare to say it is the most lovable Selangor attraction.
If you are not a big fan of water-involved activities, there are Bungy Jump, Paintball War Game, Go – Kart and more for you to enjoy. Take your group there and enjoy the perfect services.
3. Kampung Kuantan Firefly Park
You are recommended to take off soon and arrived at Kampung Kuantan FireFly Park before the sunset. This way, you can take some great pictures of the sunset and many kinds of bird.
At 7:30, you can be on board for the firefly watching rise. Cameras are allowed, but you mustn’t use the flash. It’s rare in our life that we have the chance to see so many fireflies, so don’t bother trying to catch the pictures of them. Enjoy the experience by your eyes and keep them in your mind for eternity.
To tell the truth, the trees, which are the houses of fireflies look like sparkling Christmas trees.
There are a lot of restaurants around the place with seafood dominating the menus. You should give them a try. All the ingredients are fresh and the dishes are incredibly tasty.
4. Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall
It would be my thoughtlessness if I did not mention the shopping mall as fascinating Selangor attraction. Many visitors claim that Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall is the best shopping mall in Malaysia.
The architecture of the shopping mall makes people think of mid-east serenity and mysteries. You can find almost any brand you want here. There are places for international ones like H&M, Zara, Uniqlo, Muji, VS and etc. It’s not so satisfactory if you are looking for designed high-end stuff, but ones in mid-market are prevailing.
In Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall, you can find an ice skating rink, which is recommended by a lot of visitors. Besides, there are lots of food outlets or your choices. The place is quite convenient for tourists because there are a few fancy hotels nearby.
However, parking can be quite a nuisance since you come there at weekends. Keep it in mind next time you want to pay the Selangor attraction a visit.
