Hulu Selangor possesses wealth in the form of conserved natural heritage and little-known historical riches. Staycations in natural settings are becoming increasingly common in Hulu Selangor, making it a popular destination for tourists from both within and outside Malaysia.

Hulu Selangor is a popular destination for city dwellers from Kuala Lumpur looking to unwind after a week of hard work since it offers a wide variety of activities that bring visitors closer to nature. Hulu Selangor is also a convenient nearby location for those in search of solitude and quiet reflection.

Join me as I enumerate some of my favourite local spots for a relaxing staycation, along with fun activities to cheer those – like the Indonesian singer Ghea Indrawari calls in her hit song – ‘jiwa yang bersedih’ (‘souls in sorrow’). To find back your centre, why not you use up your unused annual leave and spend a four-day and three-night getaway in Hulu Selangor? The following is a sample itinerary that you can use when exploring the destination…

DAY 1

10.00 AM- SERENDAH HERITAGE TRAIL

Who would have guessed that the small town of Serendah in Hulu Selangor has a past that is likely to wow any history buff? By following the tour guide Miss Joyce through the Serendah Heritage Trail, I was able to learn about the area’s past and appreciate its present more. I can imagine where the hospitals, police stations, and various other buildings in the past looked like during the town’s heyday as a hub for tin mining but have now been demolished. Miss Joyce took me to down memory lane when she showed me where Main Street, Macao Street, Station Street, Market Street, Club Street, Temple Street and more were located. The names of these streets have now been changed and sport modern buildings to support the town’s businesses and residents’ day-to-day living. 

12.00 PM- TASIK KEBUN RESORT, SERENDAH

Staycationing in the middle of a palm oil plantation? This is the first time I’ve ever heard of such a novel experience. Tasik Kebun is a 15-acre palm oil farm with various lodging options and amenities. Studio Garden, Superior Deluxe, Garden Pool Deluxe, and Farmhouse Villa are some types of accommodations. Paddleboarding, kayaking, a restaurant, a multi-purpose hall (a conference and karaoke room), a games room, and a swimming pool shaded by palm trees are among the activities you can partake in when staying here.

DAY 2

10.00 AM- KKB PARAGLIDING PARK, CLOUD BASS

Want to do something exciting and stimulating when you are bored or weary of work? Revitalise your life by paragliding at 1,400 metres above sea level and even soar alongside eagles, if you were lucky. The launch, flight, and landing will all be handled by expert paragliding pilots, leaving you free to relax and take photos with the GoPro camera provided. You get to fly between 5 and 10 minutes in the air, so utilise that time well by taking the video shot. If you want to shoot videos for Instagram Reels and TikTok, you need to record the videos in portrait format instead of landscape. For stunning images, shoot a video from every angle and reposition your GoPro every 30 seconds.

1.30 PM- FRASER VALLEY KUALA KUBU BHARU 

Nowadays, luxurious camping trips are popular among city dwellers to unwind outside urban centres. Fraser Valley Kuala Kubu Bharu is a great place to unwind with loved ones or close friends after a busy long week without having to give up on any of your comforts. Glamping options range from two-person and three-person to six-person. You can also choose any of the cabins if tents were not for you.

DAY 3

10.00 AM- WORLD OF PHALAENOPSIS 

Visit the World of Phalaenopsis in Batang Kali with your family or friends if they were orchid enthusiasts. As you enter the site, your eyes will be immediately drawn to the stunning purple orchids that adorn nearly every wall. Perhaps the most intriguing is the presence of a secret café serving sweet and hearty fares. The presence of the orchids throughout the cafe is a wondrous addition to your meal and can help lift your spirits. After your meal, you can check out the orchids that are available for purchase. In addition to its spaciousness and plenty of photo ops, this site also allows visitors to feed fish, ducks, and geese, among other farm animals.

1.30 PM- RUMAH SUNGAI BONDA ROZITA

Are you looking for a quiet, opulent staycation in Hulu Selangor? Then look no further: The collection of impressively ornate abodes in Bonda Valley belonging to the celebrated Malaysian wellness entrepreneur Madam Rozita Ibrahim, affectionately known as Bonda (Mother) Rozita, is an excellent choice because they tick all the boxes. You are bound to be delighted because this entire property is surrounded by lush tropical greenery. One of the accommodations, Villa Kemala, is even spacious enough to sleep up to 12 persons. Those who want to take the whole family on vacation will love the pool and barbecue area. The furnishings and decor take cues from European Empire styles, including influences from the Malay Archipelago. Among the activities available here are cycling, riding on all-terrain vehicles, SkyTrec tree-to-tree courses, and more!

DAY 4

12.00 PM- KUALA KUBU BHARU HERITAGE TRAIL

Joining the Kuala Kubu Bharu Heritage Trail is a must if you are passionate about art and history. See for yourself the murals that have been painted along the trail, which depict the events related to Kuala Kubu Bharu’s past. There are many interesting things to learn about the area, including the legend of the white crocodile and the history of British colonialism. The best part is that there are many photogenic places for you to take your outfit-of-the-day shots without having to venture far.
