Carefree in Klang

KLANG’s car-free day on the third Sunday of every month is a good way for visitors to discover the royal town.

Organised by Klang Municipal Council (MPK), the eighth edition last month drew participants from other parts of Selangor too despite the wet morning.

It was heartening to see many visitors from nearby Subang Jaya, Shah Alam and Petaling Jaya using the KTM Komuter service and getting down at the Klang station to reach the site.

Participants enjoyed the day out. They ran, jogged, walked or cycled around the main roads, which were closed to vehicular traffic during the event from 7am to 10.30am.

Those who tried the 3km fun walk route around Jalan Istana, Jalan Tengku Kelana and Jalan Diaudin realised that travelling around the town was easy and that they did not need to rely on motorised vehicles.

MPK also organised an aerobics exercise session to encourage people to keep fit, while a drawing contest for children added to the fun.
