Bangi is a small town located in
Selangor. Despite its size, it has a KTM Komuter station. But that is where its
urban characteristics come to a halt. Most modern living can be done in Bandar
Baru Bangi located north to the original township. The new and improved Baru
Bangi is significantly more developed than its predecessor. The name given
translates to New Bangi Town and
is even well known throughout the state as its "Knowledge City".
Not surprising when the number of schools are taken into account, amounting to
a whopping twenty over.
This number includes schools both
public and private and even colleges. Apart from the quantity, the schools even
get the tick for quality as colleges range from a polytechnic to an Islamic
college to international French and German institutions to even one for
aviation! The town even has research centres the Malaysia Nuclear Agency and
the Palm Oil Board or MPOB. Recreational facilities include the Hotel
Equitorial for its luxurious golf course.
