PANDUAN LAWATAN: PETA BANDAR KLANG

 

 

Di bawah ini disertakan beberapa peta Klang sebagai panduan untuk lawatan anda ke bandar Klang.

Peta Klang

Peta Klang...Jika anda berkunjung ke iCity Shah Alam (lihat peta - Seksyen 7, E1), singgahlah ke Klang. Perjalanan hanya 15 minit sahaja. Jika anda berada di Klang dan ingin ke I-city Shah Alam, sila rujuk peta ke I-city Shah Alam seperti di bawah.

 
peta ke I-city Shah Alam

PANDUAN KE I-CITY DARI KLANG - Ramai yang ada masalah ke i-City Shah Alam bila ada event atau karnival yang best atau sempena menyambut tahun baru untuk tengok bunga api. Masalahnya ialah jalam jem jika bawa kenderaan daripada Highway Federal dari KL ke Shah Alam dan i-City pulak terletak di sempadan Shah Alam dan Klang. Biasanya, kalau jalan jem memang buang masa dan tak berbaloi kalau datang dah lewat sebab memang tak sempat nak tengok apa-apa. Sebagai alternatif, anda boleh ikut highway KESAS dan ikut Jambatan ke-2 Klang menuju ke Shah Alam.

 

Peta di atas menunjukkan perjalanan anda jika menaiki KTM komuter dan stop di stesen Klang Selatan(Lokasi A)  untuk ke I-city (Lokasi B). Minta teksi untuk ikut laluan tersebut. Atau jika anda minta kawan-kawan untuk ambil di stesen KTM komuter Klang dan bawa anda ke I-city, boleh juga ikut laluan ini.

 

Dari Klang Selatan, perjalanan ke I-city tidak mengambil masa yang lama, dalam 10-15 minit sahaja. Jika anda daripada stesen KTM Klang, ikut Jalan Stesen - masuk ke Jalan Tengku Kelana yang menghala ke bulatan Klang. Di Bulatan, ambil Jalan Jambatan Kota yang menghala ke Pusat Bandar Klang semula (macam buat U-Turn).

 

Jika anda daripada KESAS highway pun macam tu. Ikut saja jalan utamanya (Jalan Langat) dan masuk ke Jalan Persiaran Tengku Ampuan Rahimah (anda akan melalui Hospital Besar Klang, Masjid Tengku Ampuan Rahimah dan terus sahaja akan membawa anda ke Bulatan Klang). Di Bulatan, ambil Jalan Jambatan Kota yang menghala ke Pusat Bandar Klang.

 

Jalan terus sehingga melalui bangunan Majlis Perbandaran Klang (MPK) dan anda akan merentasi Sungai Klang melalui Jalan Jambatan Kota yang baru, melalui pusat Bandar Klang dan terus sahaja sehingga ke Persiaran Sultan Ibrahim. Teruskan perjalanan sehingga melalui Bandar Baru Klang dan sampai ke Plaza Tol Sg. Rasau di Lebuhraya Persekutuan.

 

Bayaran tol cuma RM1.00 dan teruskan perjalanan anda dengan menghimpit ke laluan kiri lebuhraya Persekutuan. Daripada Plaza Tol Sg. Rasau pun anda dah boleh nampak I-city di sebelah kiri anda. Ikut laluan kiri sahaja sehingga anda berjumpa traffic light dan belok ke kiri. Ikut sahaja jalan tersebut (Jalan Persiaran Permai) dan jalan terus sehingga anda nampak signboard I-city dan masuklah! Dah sampaitu, pandai-pandailah cari tempat untuk parking kereta ya! Caj parking RM10.00!

KLANG

Whenever you find profitable resources, there are riches to be made. In Klang there was plenty of tin to be had. And the opportunists moved in. Tin had been mined by the Malays for centuries. The Chinese later introduced more efficient techniques to tin mining. And the British supported the industry relentlessly to feed the voracious needs of its Industrial Revolution.

As all other places where tin was found, Klang flourished. Infrastructure sprouted and roads were built. Britain invested benevolently and wisely. The excavated tin must find their way to the ports en route to Great Britain.

Meanwhile, tension amongst the locals brewed and seethed. Two local chieftains of Klang, Raja Abdullah and Raja Mahadi, fought for supremacy over the tin trade. Their Chinese allies backing them strongly. It was no surprise that Civil war erupted in 1867. It was unavoidable. For seven years, Malay soldiers wielding Kris and spears fought alongside their Chinese counterparts armed with their long menacing swords. Onslaught after onslaught assaulted and dominated besieged forts. One of the forts still stands; Kota Raja Mahadi was the stronghold of Raja Mahadi . Sadly today, all that remain to be seen are the main gate and the earthen ramparts. And that is if you can find it. After a lapse of an industrious century, development and tropical weeds and creepers brutally camouflage its pitiful existence.

The two warring sides called in aid from outsiders. The loss proved to be truly theirs. The year following the end of the Civil War, a British Resident was appointed to oversee matters in Klang, inevitably putting a stop to the era of the Malay chieftains' control over the proceeds of tin.

The Gedung Raja Abdullah is about the only historical structure that is still standing. In its heyday, Raja Abdullah reigned on the top floor of the building where he also housed his family. On the ground floor, sprawled his warehouse where he safely stashed all his tin in. A few hundred yards away lies the Klang River, a most convenient highway to transport this highly valuable raw material. It is, therefore, unfortunate that the building only has a short-lived moment of honour. It is doomed to a tragic fate of suffering many unkind experiences since then. When the Civil War broke out, Gedung Raja Abdullah was abandoned. His landlord deserted him, retreating to Melaka on his paddle steamer. When peace was once again restored, Gedung Raja Abdullah barracked the district Police Headquarters for a hundred years. Worn out and worn down, it was almost scheduled to be demolished when the Heritage of Malaysia Trust stepped in and saved it

Today, Gedung Raja Abdullah proudly shelters the Klang Tin Museum, a structure deserving the honour to recount the past history of the once coveted tin. A delightfully informative museum. You can simply wander in and immerse into the realm of days long gone. The exhibition on tin mining is superb and truly educational. Spend some time there and learn about things you would never have guessed. You will find unexpected gems and trivia. For instance, the first Europeans to soil their hands in tin in Malaya were actually the French!!

Alas!! A wretched cloud of unhappiness still hangs over Gedung Raja Abdullah. This oldest surviving building in Selangor now only manages to meekly prop itself in between some hideous looking architecture. Flanked on its right are tall pink buildings obstructing Raja Abdullah's view of his beloved steam paddler mooring by the river. All lined up along the frontage are beaten up cars, vehicles burnt down to rust, confiscated cars that owners have preferred to forget. To forget is the choice that the people of Klang has made, relinquishing the glory of its golden era. Its rich history rusting away in the abyss of these misshapen burnt automobiles.

Indeed, if you look at Klang today it is hard to imagine that this was a place where a civil war erupted, dividing families and clans. For seven long years embroiled anarchy festered and fed on the insatiable lust of two men desiring to be King of Tin. No longer are there traces of wealthy chieftains rolling around in tin derived riches, their paddle steamers docking impatiently awaiting the orders to chug down the yellow river to their designated destination. History and all the grandeur of affluence satisfied from tin is buried, long dead and gone, deep underneath the monstrosity of modern structures. Neglected evidence of Civil War and rivalry eroded away into the clutter coordinated town planning.

All is not lost for Klang, though. Cruise along the old side of Klang where lies the Municipal Council and other whitewashed government offices. Steal into the quiet lanes that divide these old colonial buildings. Tall lush trees file erect and magnificent, complementing and making whole the scene before you. Breath in and you will almost forget the chaotic medley and mishmash cacophony of colours, sound and agenda of Klang town.

If you have the time, venture into Jalan Stesen. There you will find a quaint little kopitiam, and what a charming Chinese café it is. Right from the exterior of its long glass windows to the high ceilings to the unique iron wrought works emit a delectable warm colonial feel about it. It is also here that the three main races of Malaya mingle indiscriminately. An elderly Chinese bloke roosting crosslegged on his chair sharing a joke with a religious looking Malay guy who has his back against a poster with a Carlsberg girl flaunting her assets. An Indian chap fully attired in his un-ironed white dhoti sitting quietly as he anticipates the arrival of the latest political gossip. And the cherry on top of the icing walks around the shop in the suit of a delightfully welcoming and friendly hostess. Ask her to get you the 'roti bakar', some homemade bread grilled over charcoal which you can later slap on it some butter or 'kaya' , some Malay jam made of eggs, sugar and coconut milk. Peep into their kitchen and marvel at how they prepare the roti bakar in exactly the same way their grandfathers had done so fifty years ago! It just goes to show that there are some parts from the past that you can never leave behind.

Use GPS to go to Klang

By: Garmin.

What is GPS? The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a satellite-based navigation system made up of a network of 24 satellites placed into orbit by the U.S. Department of Defense. GPS was originally intended for military applications, but in the 1980s, the government made the system available for civilian use. GPS works in any weather conditions, anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day. There are no subscription fees or setup charges to use GPS.

How it Works? GPS satellites circle the earth twice a day in a very precise orbit and transmit signal information to earth. GPS receivers take this information and use triangulation to calculate the user's exact location. Essentially, the GPS receiver compares the time a signal was transmitted by a satellite with the time it was received. The time difference tells the GPS receiver how far away the satellite is. Now, with distance measurements from a few more satellites, the receiver can determine the user's position and display it on the unit's electronic map.

A GPS receiver must be locked on to the signal of at least three satellites to calculate a 2D position (latitude and longitude) and track movement. With four or more satellites in view, the receiver can determine the user's 3D position (latitude, longitude and altitude). Once the user's position has been determined, the GPS unit can calculate other information, such as speed, bearing, track, trip distance, distance to destination, sunrise and sunset time and more.

How Accurate is GPS? Today's GPS receivers are extremely accurate, thanks to their parallel multi-channel design. Garmin's 12 parallel channel receivers are quick to lock onto satellites when first turned on and they maintain strong locks, even in dense foliage or urban settings with tall buildings. Certain atmospheric factors and other sources of error can affect the accuracy of GPS receivers. Garmin® GPS receivers are accurate to within 15 meters on average.

Newer Garmin GPS receivers with WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation System) capability can improve accuracy to less than three meters on average. No additional equipment or fees are required to take advantage of WAAS. Users can also get better accuracy with Differential GPS (DGPS), which corrects GPS signals to within an average of three to five meters. The U.S. Coast Guard operates the most common DGPS correction service. This system consists of a network of towers that receive GPS signals and transmit a corrected signal by beacon transmitters. In order to get the corrected signal, users must have a differential beacon receiver and beacon antenna in addition to their GPS.

GPS Satellite System. The 24 satellites that make up the GPS space segment are orbiting the earth about 12,000 miles above us. They are constantly moving, making two complete orbits in less than 24 hours. These satellites are travelling at speeds of roughly 7,000 miles an hour. GPS satellites are powered by solar energy. They have backup batteries onboard to keep them running in the event of a solar eclipse, when there's no solar power. Small rocket boosters on each satellite keep them flying in the correct path.

What's the Signal? GPS satellites transmit two low power radio signals, designated L1 and L2. Civilian GPS uses the L1 frequency of 1575.42 MHz in the UHF band. The signals travel by line of sight, meaning they will pass through clouds, glass and plastic but will not go through most solid objects such as buildings and mountains. A GPS signal contains three different bits of information - a pseudorandom code, ephemeris data and almanac data. The pseudorandom code is simply an I.D. code that identifies which satellite is transmitting information. You can view this number on your Garmin GPS unit's satellite page, as it identifies which satellites it's receiving. Ephemeris data, which is constantly transmitted by each satellite, contains important information about the status of the satellite (healthy or unhealthy), current date and time. This part of the signal is essential for determining a position. The almanac data tells the GPS receiver where each GPS satellite should be at any time throughout the day. Each satellite transmits almanac data showing the orbital information for that satellite and for every other satellite in the system.
