Selangor, Now or Never

It’s an amazing time being in Selangor, Malaysia for 4 days and 5 nights. I spent a good time there. Living at comfortable hotel, meeting with friendly people, having fun together at amusement park, and enjoying nice view around there. You should come to visit Selangor now, or you will never.

We went to some places during there. My Selangor Story and some sponsors, such as Premiere Hotel, Sunway Lagoon, Vivatel Kuala Lumpur, Arenaa Star, Golden Palm Tree,and Astutexperience, have helped and supported our trip there.

I have written some reviews about some places that we went. Want to know where did we go and what did we do? Read the story each chapter.

#2nd Day – Visiting Klang Heritage and Sunway Lagoon

January, 26th 2013. It was about 7.30 am, we left from Premiere Hotel to visit Klang Heritage, some ancient places in Klang, Selangor. Sure, having a group photo before leaving one place is a must. We are exactly crazy and happy bloggers, haha.

Soon after that, we left to some places of Klang heritage. The first place that we have visited is the railway station. This station was build long time ago, and now is still operated to take the passengers to some places in Selangor especially.

During in Klang railway station, we spent our time for taking photos and collecting some information, also asked related questing to some station staffs. After looking around, we decided to continue our journey. We have been to some ancient places. We walked through some old buildings.

Gedong Raja Abdullah Heritage

Before, Gedong Raja Abdullah was used  as a place where the people saved their guns that time. Now this building is closed and was informed will make as a museum.

We continued walking and then we met one of Klang’s oldest fire station. This building was built in 1890s. Even the building renovated 3 years ago, but the concept of this building is still the same with the old style.

Hoaam… I feel little bit tired after visiting some of Klang heritage. We continued our journey to Galeri Diraja Sultan Abdul Aziz which in located in Bangunan Sultan Sulaeman, 41000 Klang, Selangor Darul Ehsan. Nice place, and I could find many unique things inside.

During in this building, we visited and saw many things. The guide also explained us the story of each thing we saw. We also watched the documentary film. It was a good moment being there. I could get some knowledge about Selangor historical.

Spending like almost one hour there, the team then decided to move to another Klang heritage, this time we went to the Lady of Lourdes Church which is located in Jl.Tengku Kelana, Klang Selangor. Then we continued our journey and stopped in an unique bridge which is could be use for motorbike and cars. Down part is used for motorbike, and above part is used for cars only.

All right, not too long there, we continued to Persatuan Penyokong Rumah Berhala Kwan Imm, Klang. It’s a place where the Buddhism worship. When we were there, we saw most of Buddhism were seriously worshiping. I was not lucky that time because my camera battery was low, and no pictures captured, yeah there is, but only one 😦

Collecting information, looking around and taking photos done. Now it’s time to move to Little India. When we arrived at Little India, firstly we had our lunch at Archana curry house which is located at Jl. Tengku Kelana No.62, Klang, Selangor Darul Ehsan, 41000 Malaysia. We have had a great lunch right there. Oh no pictures here, camera was charging 😦

No problem, let’s jump to another destination. After having a great lunch we walked through some building ans dropped by at Madura store. This store is selling the accessories. Each of us got free simple accessories from the owner of this store. Then we moved to Gayathiri store. A store which sales the Indian clothes. Again, each of us got free Kain Saree from the owner of this store.

All right, our journey to Klang heritage stopped here, and we moved to another beautiful place, it was Sunway Lagoon. Sunway Lagoon is an amusement park in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia. It was officially opened by the Prime Minister Tun Mahathir bin Mohamad on April 29, 1993. Our bus kept going through the buildings and good traffic that time, and finally touched down in Sunway Lagoon.

Sunway Lagoon Extreme Park

We spent at least 2 hours and 30 minutes here. For the opening “water party”, we watched the Waterplexx 5D. It’s was amazing, more than real world. After watching, some of us did water activities, some went to extreme park, and some busy with taking photos.

Around 5.00 pm, we left to Arenaa Star Luxury Hotel in Kuala Lumpur. It took around one hour to get there from Sunway Lagoon because we have had a bad traffic jam. I felt asleep in the bus.. Huh really really tired. Finally we arrived at Arenaa Star Luxury Hotel.

Right before having hotel presentation, we had another presentation from AstuteXperience. This is one of sponsored which gave us free card and some vouchers for enjoying holiday in Malaysia ( for member only ). To get the membership card, we have to pay around RM150, but we were lucky that time because we got this car for free. In this case, you guys should know that AstuteXperience  is the partner of Arenaa Star Luxury Hotel and Vivatel Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. Without AstuteXperience, we would not able to enjoy and stay at these 2 hotels. Once again thanks a lot for AstuteXperience.
