Sunway Lagoon Theme Park, Forest Research Institute of Malaysia, Thai Chetawan Temple (Wat Chetawan), Secret Garden Utama, Gunung Nuang

Sunway Lagoon Theme Park: another kid oriented entertainment centre.

Forest Research Institute of Malaysia: FRIM is a manmade forestry environment set up back in the 1920s. You can get an insight into what Malaysia looked like in the earlier century. There is a museum and a gallery but the highlight of your excursion will be the Canopy Walk which however, if raining or foggy, access restricted. But be in appropriate clothing as you’ll encounter leeches & mosquitoes along the way.

Thai Chetawan Temple (Wat Chetawan): A Thai style Buddhist temple. There is always a monk present to give blessings. The temple ground is quite pleasant enough to roam around for prayers.

Wat Chetawan

Secret Garden Utama: Situated on the rooftop of  1Utama Shopping Mall (only on weekends), this is the paradise for photographers. It is a good place for a stroll through plants and flowers around amidst serenity.

Gunung Nuang: This is an amazing hike for seasoned hikers with total climb distance 12km (one way). If you get to the top and there is no rain, the view is amazing.
