North of Pulau Carey is the island of Pulau Ketam (Crab Island) with its picturesque coastal fishing villages built on stilts.
It is blessed with bountiful fishing grounds and is popular among the locals for its superb seafood restaurants.
Pulau Ketam is a great place to savour a variety of seafood specialties, in particular the curry crab.
Fishing and bird-watching tours are available.
Home stays in a 'kelong house', two or three kilometres offshore, are also available.
There are many taxis and buses plying the Kuala Lumpur-Port Klang route. Alternatively, one can also take the KTM commuter train to Port Klang from the Kuala Lumpur Railway Station. At the Port Klang jetty, board a ferry to Pulau Ketam. The journey takes about an hour.
Shah Alam Lake Gardens
Shah Alam may be a busy, urban city, there is still a place for people to relax, and that place would be the Shah Alam Lake Gardens.
With a manmade lake in the Shah Alam Lake Gardens, surrounded by vast, landscaped gardens, it is the perfect place to hold events such as the International Boat Show and the Selangor Orchid Exhibition.
If you're hungry, you can always head out to the floating seafood restaurant, and for other recreations head out to Wet World water theme park in this area. Don't forget to stop by at Laman Budaya culture centre as well.
Shah Alam Stadium
Within the central component of the Shah Alam Sports Complex is the Shah Alam Stadium. Since the official lauch on July 16 1994, the stadium has successfully played host to many events that includes both international and local sports events, tournaments, concerts and more.
The entire stadium spans an area of 155,000 square meter, with a massive 6 level semi-enclosed space with a total amount of 69,372 seats and additional 11,000 standing.
The stadium is the homeground for the Selangor soccer team and the venue for most FAM-organised matches. The stadium played host to the World Youth Championship matches in 1997.
Chongkak River Recreational Forest /
Sungai Chongkak Recreational Forest
Located in Hulu Langat, is the Chongkak River Recreational Forest. It takes about 45 minutes to reach the forest from Kuala Lumpur.
It's worth the long journey though, as visitors will get to explore the wide and vast, beautiful forest, home to many habitats. Looking at the clean, clear waters of Chongkak River, which flows directly from Nuang Mountain, is mesmerizing.
Facilities such as toilets, changing rooms and chalets, as well as picnic and camping zones are available. Entrance fee is free as the maintenance is completely funded by the department.
Sungai Gabai Waterfalls
On the same road to Sungai Chongkak in Hulu Langat district, is the refreshing site of the Sungai Gabai Waterfalls.
The waterfalls offer a picturesque view of several falls which cascade down over 100 meters, culminating in a broad, photogenic plunge into a series of small pools suitable for swimming.
The Sungai Batangsi Waterfalls and Sungai Lallang Recreational Forest are down the same road to Hulu Langat.
