A visit there will see city folks charmed by such a small town with two bridges welcoming visitors at the township's entrance.

One landmark is the Empress Hotel, which is the tallest building in the area, and located in the town centre.

Two mosques can be found in the area with the Masjid Sultan Hisamuddin catering to Bandar Baru Salak Tinggi residents and the Masjid KLIA catering to those living near the airport or the circuit.

The township does not offer much but it is a popular stop over for those on their way to Nilai using the trunk road, especially if they're looking for some food.

Salak Tinggi is inundated annually by motorsports fans when it hosts the Formula-1 Malaysian Grand Prix at the Sepang International Circuit (SIC).


Most travellers stay at the Pan Pacific Hotel, Concorde Inn, Cyberview Lodge, Empress Hotel or De Palma Inn.

The recently-opened Transit Service Centre budget hotel at the Airport City Business Centre is becoming increasingly popular due its proximity to the KLIA and LCCT airports (15 minutes drive away) and is beside the Salak Tinggi ERL Station where there is a twice-hourly KLIA Transit service to KLIA and KL Sentral (Central transportation hub in Kuala Lumpur city).

The Transit Service Centre budget hotel (Tel: 603-87064088) is very popular with the Low-Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) passengers who are generally more price-sensitive and provides free transfer to the airport.
