  • Visit the Majestic Blue Mosque

    This is the Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah Mosque or the Blue Mosque, so named because of its blue dome. During our visit here, I've seen it so big that I find it hard to take pictures. That is why vter Siti took us to a vantage point where we can take a whole picture of the mosque.

  • Shah Alam Lake

    - Set within a beautifully landscaped garden, this man-made lake graces te Shah Alam town. It is a favourite spot for picnics, jogging or recreational activities. -

Shah Alam Restaurants

  • Mee Bandung Muar!

    In Shah Alam, I don't think anyone would have any high expectations of a restaurant's decorations, ambience and such as there aren't many restaurants here that posses such qualities. However, this is just another day-to-day restaurant and it's open for lunch and dinner. For lunch, it serves an array of dishes that one would simply have with white...

  • The Best Buffet In Town

    It's a must for you to try the buffet at this place as it serves the best food money can buy. It is indeed very cheap and the food is excellent.My theory is that they have to cook the best meals all the time as it's part of the University. They need the grades and so they have to do the best of everything. Although the service may need some tidying...

  • Subang Teow Chew Claypot Bak Ku Teh

    The restaurant is located by the trunk road and is open-sided without any air conditioning... however, the dining area is airy and cool... you will have to make your own tea after tea selection and pots of boiling water is strategically place between the dining tables... Parking is by the side of the main road as well as a small parking area and...

  • Coffee Shop

    Met here with vters Siti (boocik04) and Gong (nhg). Has a happy ambience with TV, open 24 hours. Open air cafe/bistro concept overlooking a small man-made lake. I tried the Nasi Goreng Cina or 'chinese fried rice' in english with seafoods and Teh Tarik for my drinks.

  • Great Mini Restaurant

    I discover this restaurant just by co-incident. I was looking for a WiFi spot and as I drove around the area, I found this restaurant.The concept is great even. Good Wifi coverage, a traditional massage centrel, good food and there is even a big lcd screen playing live cable channel.I ordered a tomyam soup and I love it very much. The waiter and...

  • Shah Alam's Beryiani Bukhara

    Shah Alam really has lots of ‘mamak’ restaurant and Restoran Syed is one of the best. Having few branches throughout Shah Alam, it offers a good dish by the name of Nasi Beryiani Bukhara (Bukhara Beryiani Rice).I had tasted the dish at one of their branches in Section 11 and the rice is surely full of flavors and rich in spices. We can choose to...

Shah Alam Transportation

  • People Mover Rapid Transit (PRT)

    KL's People Mover Rapid Transit (PRT) is a 16km elevated monorail system. The PRT is not integrated with the Ligh rail Transit (LRT) which can mean leaving one system and then walking across the road to another system.It's a nice way of getting another view of the city as you are elevated over the roads. The tracks run from KL Sentral to Titiwangsa...

  • Light Rail Transit (LRT)

    KL's LRT is a fast, inexpensive and mostly elevated metro system. The LRT is not integrated with the Monorail (PRT) which can mean leaving one system and then walking across the road to another system.There are two main lines:1.

  • Just another rip off!

    Of all the great experiences I had in KL, not once was it with a taxi driver who tended to try and take advantage of this tourist.Before coming here I did note some phone numbers from VT'ers who had recommended some taxi drivers in KL.In her KL transportation tip, uysijessa wrote that Steve is the guy to call and I don't doubt for a minute that her...

  • Newest Shopping Mall

    The newest shopping mall in Shah Alam is the SACC Mall. This is the third mall after Alam Sentral and Plaza Shah Alam (Section 9) - I am not counting Kompleks PKNS as it is more of an office building cum shop lots rather than a mall! There are several "popular" stores you can fiind here such as the Factory Outlet Store (FOS), J.Bovier, Guess,...

    Kompleks PKNS used to be the only shopping place in Shah Alam for almost two decades until other malls were build in the 1990s.

    When in Shah Alam, do visit Bukit Jelutong or Section U8. Here, you can see the big landmark that looks like a boat sail which is actually the Guthrie office.
