Ministry to Give Klang Tourism Boost.

 

KLANG: 2008 - The Tourism Ministry is looking into new ways to make the royal town of Klang more attractive to tourists. Minister Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said said the ministry has directed state tourism department officers to update information on the district's attractions.

“We are looking at organising a familiarisation tour for foreign journalists to our tourism attractions so they can see what we have to offer,” she said after visiting the Sultan Abdul Aziz Royal Gallery here yesterday.

Klang has attraction for fishing activities at Tanjung Harapan and Pulau Indah. Tanjung Harapan - Many people come here to fish and also many come just to watch people fishing while enjoying the sea breeze...

 

Azalina said one of the main attractions in Klang was the royal gallery, which offered a glimpse into the history and heritage of the Selangor sultanate and the late Sultan of Selangor Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah.

She said the gallery, located in the 99-year-old Sultan Suleiman building, would be an interesting place for foreign tourists to visit.

She added, however, that more efforts, like introducing better tourism packages, were needed to bring in tourists. “The gallery is a one of its kind but it can’t stand on its own. Many tourists will not travel to see just one place. Therefore, we are discussing a better strategy,” she said, adding that tours could be linked to other attractions such as the Istana Alam Shah.

New Mosques as a new attraction in Klang town named as Masjid Bandar Diraja.

The Istana Alam Shah, the official palace of the Sultan of Selangor, was built in May 1959 and will soon be transformed into a museum and opened for public viewing.

A new Masjid India at Jalan Tengku Kelana Klang is one of the latest tourist attraction in 2010.

She added that the state tourism department was also told to carry out educational tours for students in the state for them to better understand and appreciate local history.
GM Klang to become largest wholesale hub

GM Klang is set to be the first most comprehensive wholesale and trade hub, projecting a turnover of over RM1 billion. The project consists of five phases. The first phase of the project commenced in 2009 with more than 300 wholesalers supplying an array of merchandise from apparel to IT products.


Phase two, known as GM Klang Block A, will start its operations in October once the construction works have been completed. The second phase is made up of 750 wholesale shops, offering products such as apparel, cosmetics, textiles, bags, timepieces, footwear, spectacles, toys, gifts and electrical products. GM Klang will also feature a halal product zone. The project will not only contribute the country's economic development but it will provide job opportunities. Once the project is completed, it will house over 3,000 wholesale shops.

With its strategic location, which is near both the ports in Klang and major highways, GM Klang Wholesale City will become an international wholesale hub. With the strategic location and logistical support, this wholesaling business will serve the needs of many Southeast Asian countries and become an international gateway for trade.

i-City near Klang - This has to be one of the most popular family attractions in Malaysia. You can cool off in Snowalk, an indoor snow park with ice houses, snowmen and a mini-bobsled run, while outdoors is a fantasy forest of digital lights which is really spectacular. Recent additions include a big wheel and other fairground rides
