I would say, Klang, Selangor.

Technically, Klang is a town, but believe me it is bigger than some cities in Malaysia.

Klang is also Selangor’s Royal town and has lots of historical buildings existing from the pre-colonial times up until the colonial rule.

Heritage sites

Little India (said to be the largest in Malaysia), the Victorian-style Klang Fire Station (which is STILL in use), the Our Lady of Lourdes Church – houses the relic of St. Maria Goretti, Sultan Suleiman Royal Mosque – completed in 1934, Istana Alam Shah – the official palace of Sultan of Selangor, and many more.

you can find lots of good food here. It’s a mixture of Malay, Java, Chinese and Indian. Must try would be Bak Kut Teh (non-halal), soto (a staple for the Malay-Java community). Also stop by the famous Chong Kok Kopitiam – be sure to come as early as possible on weekends. Witness the true Malaysian style breakfast.

It’s amazing that tourists, even the locals would skipped this town and prefer its fancier neighbor, such as Shah Alam, Subang Jaya et cetera.
