Lush greenery in Semenyih

The Star, Friday March 29, 2013

Semenyih is home to many tourist attractions such as the Sungai Tekala Recreational Forest, Semenyih Hot Spring, Rabbit Fun Land and Ostrich Wonderland Show Farm.

There are several rivers located in Semenyih, such as Sungai Rinching, Sungai Broga, Sungai Tekala, Sungai Pening, Sungai Batang Si, Sungai Lalang and Sungai Purun.

Roads leading to the Semenyih Nirvana Memorial Park are congested during the Qing Ming Festival period every year as people make their way there to pay homage to ancestors and the deceased.

The Chinese Calligraphy Stone Gallery, launched on Oct 28, 2012, is also located in the memorial park. It features over 150 calligraphic tablets.

The gallery is open to the public and admission is free.

Also in Semenyih is the University of Nottingham Malaysia campus, established in 2005, leading to an increase of foreign students living near the campus.

Another place of interest is the Rabbit Fun Land, which is located in Kampung Rinching Ulu, approximately 3km away from the campus.

A scenic hilltop temple in Broga also attracts visitors and tourists. Chinese New Year music videos were also filmed here.

Broga is located between Semenyih, Selangor and Negri Sembilan.

Recently, it was announced that a new access road would be built for motorists to get to the Kajang-Seremban Highway (Lekas) from Kampung Rinching Hulu, without having to pass through Semenyih town.
