Selangor is a very urbanised state and is rapidly growing due to modernisation. Nevertheless, you can still find villages in Selangor that adapt the kampung lifestyle which balances the hustle and bustle of city life. In my opinion, our best memories come from experiences. So, to promote all that Selangor has to offer, we have to focus on creating opportunities for people to have experiences that will lead to good memories.

It is the norms and culture of Selangorians that enthrall me the most.

We have indeed many interesting places yet to be revealed to the world – the central park (DPC), traditional bakeries in Petaling Street (Fung Wong), Forest getaways (D’Dusuntara) etc…
