2015 has been declared “Visit Selangor Year” with nature, sports and heritage attractions to be highlighted.
The year-long campaign follows the first “Visit Selangor Year” in 2000.
In a statement, Tourism Selangor said several exciting events and activities have been planned throughout the year, including the recently-concluded Temasya from Jan 29 to Feb 1, which saw 150,000 people visiting over 90 booths daily.
The campaign, launched by Mentri Besar Azmin Ali, is expected to boost the economy as well as spur the state’s tourism industry to further improve its products and services.
Selangor is Malaysia’s most vibrant and accessible state that offers various attractions ranging from glorious waterfalls to rugged hills, national parks to world-class sports centre.
Natural places of interest include the fireflies in Kg Kuantan, Kuala Selangor; Forest Research Institute of Malaysia, Kepong and Taman Botani Negara Shah Alam.
Iconic landmarks such as Istana Alam Shah in Klang, Batu Caves in Gombak and Pulau Carey provide great potential for culture and heritage while exciting sports activities will be organised too.
An estimated seven million visitors are expected, including foreigners.
