Kajang Sights and Landmarks Guide, Malaysia


Kajang is a beautiful city in Selangor situated in the peninsular Malaysia. The first human settlement in the city of Kajang dates back to 1709. The city is located about 20 km south of Kuala Lumpur and now has plenty of transport facilities, such as public buses and trains. The city still has good number of old buildings constructed around early 19th century in Jalan Sulaiman, Jalan Besar, and Jalan Mendaling areas, which are testimonies to the colonial era with their traditional Chinese and European design. 

The city of Kajang is surrounded by rubber and coffee estates and has become a favorite tourist destination of today. The unique feature of this city is the enticing aroma that lingers throughout the city. Negeri Sembilan forest reserve located in the eastside of the city is the major attraction for tourists. Semenyih Reservoir that is close to the city is one of the largest artificial lakes of Malaysia. With an area of 1500 acre and enclosed by dense forests, the lake is truly nostalgic to foreign visitors.  

Apart from the alluring natural scenery, the city is famous for its culinary skills too! You can enjoy a variety of food offered by the restaurants in Kajang. The most popular dish is known as ‘satay’ (a form of skewered barbecued meat). One other popular dish is the ‘choi bou’ or the steamed fish that is a part of the Chinese cuisine.

As the city is located very close to the capital of Malaysia tourists usually do not stay here. However, the city offers excellent boarding and lodging facilities to tourists. Some of the best places to stay include the Oriental Crystal Hotel that provides star comforts and other mid range hotels, such as Prescott Metro Inn, New City Hotel, and Uptown Hotel.   

With increasing tourists, there has been a commercial boom in the city resulting in several hypermarkets. These commercial places make shopping an enjoyable experience especially to the tourists. Sungai Chua, Prima Saujana, and Kajang Perdana are some popular places in the city of Kajang frequented by visitors. The latter two are rapidly developing housing estates in the fast growing city. Although the city is now growing into a commercial center with heavy industries, it very well retains its old charm and invites tourists with open arms.
