Be it a spontaneous one or a planned trip with the girls, one can never have too many holidays; it’s just impossible.

In that case, Selangor has plenty to offer: from industrial-chic estates to theme parks and a bustling food scene, you won’t have to travel far to catch a much-needed break.
You can also find pool villas to rent for ultimate privacy, relaxation, and a much-needed quiet getaway with your gal pals; here are some worth checking out.
