A town with a lot of history, Tanjung Malim is now a peaceful sleepy town around an hour’s drive away from Kuala Lumpur. Compared to the rest of the country, the town first gained economic power due to its many rubber plantations. What came next was the rapid development of railways, tar roads, schools and other basic amenities. However, development had since slowed down significantly and has only recently gained the attention of travellers.

While Tanjung Malim does offer a variety of attractions, an hour-long drive meant that many are reluctant to visit the town. The KOMUTER from KL Sentral to Tanjung Malim serves as an important route for those wanting to travel in comfort and convenience.


Tanjung Malim is definitely most famous for housing the Sultan Idris University of Education (UPSI). The National Education Museum holds important documents and information about Malaysia’s educational history. Other than that, the town also welcomes adventure lovers due to the abundance of pristine natural locations. The town is perfect for anyone looking to get closer to nature especially for city-dwellers. Adrenaline seekers can experience thrilling attractions by hopping on go-karts, experience white water rafting, archery and even more at the many attractions that are available. After a tiring day of adventure chill out at one of the many decades-old eateries that serve authentic traditional local food.

The perfect getaway for adventure and nature lovers, hop on the KOMUTER from KL Sentral to Tanjung Malim for fuss-free and comfortable travelling. You should definitely plan your trip in advance especially during holiday seasons.
