The westerly state of Selangor is wrapped around Kuala Lumpur, spreading west along the coast and east into the misty highlands. Many travellers treat Selangor as day-trip territory, zipping out from KL on short jaunts to architecture-rich Putrajaya, the pristine Forest Research Institute Malaysia and the unmissable Batu Caves.
But some destinations in Selangor deserve an overnight stop. Sleepy, tucked-away Bukit Fraser is bird-watching heaven. At the opposite end of the spectrum, the Genting Highlands are where KL's chic set go to shop hard and party harder.
