Selangor Darul Ehsan
A holiday in Selangor promises endless fun, entertainment and adventure. As one of Malaysia’s most prosperous and developed states, Selangor is also known as the 'gateway to Malaysia' because the main entry points are situated within the state. Its flourishing urban centres such as Petaling Jaya, Subang Jaya, Sunway and Klang abound with modern facilities, from excellent healthcare institutions, international colleges to huge shopping malls and recreational centres. Experience the broad spectrum of attractions - marvel at the glow of fireflies, watch intriguing festivals, have a terrific time at the theme parks, go on a shopping spree or enjoy the sights and sounds of nature.

Built in honour of the late Sultan of Selangor, Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah, the Sultan Abdul Aziz Royal Gallery provides an insight into the life of Malaysia's eleventh King. Exhibits include a collection of royal artefacts, gifts, and replicas of the state's crown jewels.
Firefly Parks, Kuala Selangor
Kampung Kuantan and Kampung Bukit Belimbing in Kuala Selangor are some of the few places in the world where one can watch a symphony of lights performed by colonies of firefly at night, lighting up both sides of the river. The light emitted by fireflies is called 'cold light', which produces zero heat. It is used as a means of communication as well as to attract mates.
