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.
