Selangor Tourist Guide

Selangor, or Selangor Darul Ehsan to give it its formal name, is the most developed and heavily populated of Malaysia's 13 states (estimated population as at January 2012 is over 5.5million). It is also the richest with a large share of the nation's industry and commerce concentrated here.

Selangor completely surrounds the Federal Territories of Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya which were built on land which once belonged to Selangor.

Selangor bears the scars of more than 100 years of development. Tin mining has left its mark but many of the resulting excavations have been converted into lakes for recreational or other uses. In much of the state, there is little trace of the original primary rain forest which was cleared long ago, firstly for rubber plantations which have since been replaced by oil palms or for development.

However it is still a very green state with plenty of parks and forest reserves and, along its eastern fringe there are still huge swathes of jungle covered hills to explore and enjoy.

雪兰莪州(Selangor)是马来西亚发展得最好的一个州属。它位于马来半岛的西海岸,其九个地区加起来总面积是12万5千平方公里。雪兰莪州的大部分土地已经被发展,不过,它还是拥有许多绿色地带,包括海岸线的红树林到繁茂的热带雨林。雪兰莪州的首府是莎阿南,它同时也是州的皇城。1974年时,雪兰莪州内的吉隆坡市区极其郊区被政府划分为吉隆坡联邦直辖区。

雪兰莪是进入马来西亚的主要入口,因为马来西亚美轮美奂的吉隆坡国际机场( KLIA )就建在雪兰莪州的雪邦区。雪州还有一个最重要的港口,巴生港口,位于马来半岛西海岸的巴生区内。

雪兰莪州和马来西亚首都吉隆坡最靠近,这使得雪兰莪州在商业经济效益及政府行政上皆获得很大的便利。此外,许多政府部门的办事处皆设在雪兰莪州的境内。近几年来,比较关键及具战略意义的发展包括:吉隆坡国际机场、多媒体超级走廊及科学园区,皆设在雪兰莪州境内。雪兰莪州也是国内最多大专学府的一个州属,其基础设备及电子通讯设施亦是全马最好的。

撇开经济发展及基础设施不谈,雪兰莪州内丰富的文化及富有情调的生活方式,更是吸引旅客到此观光旅游的一个优势。

雪兰莪州是购物者的天堂。这里拥有许多现代化及富丽堂皇的购物中心,提供多样化的商品给顾客选择。另外,它也有许多传统的小商店及夜市场,提供价廉物美的货品。
