Nestled between Malaysia’s capital of Kuala Lumpur and the coastal state of Negeri Sembilan lies the quiet and unassuming Hulu Langat District. The town itself is a popular destination for recreational activities, and increasingly, for its ecotourism opportunities. Some popular spots include the Sungai Gabai Waterfalls and the Semenyih Water Reservoir, where visitors can go on scenic treks and hikes. The hills and peaks also prove to be a useful training ground for other daunting climbs such as up Mount Kinabalu. While you’re there, be sure to try the durian fruit the town is famous for; the infamous “king of fruits” characterised by its formidable spiky rind and strong odour. Lastly, relax and unwind in either of the town’s two natural hot springs for the perfect end to your days. Amid all the activities you’ll be busy with, it’s of utmost importance to find an accommodation you’ll feel comfortable in. Take your pick from any of these top 10 Airbnb vacation rentals!
Enjoy all the creature comforts of a basic studio in this lovely apartment. Found just off Jalan Ampang — a major road from the top of which you have a spectacular panoramic view of Kuala Lumpur —, the studio offers a serene space for family and loved ones to gather and spend quality time. Find the Petronas Twin Towers, Korea town and the National Zoo nearby, while a drive further north would lead you to the entertainment resort, Genting Highlands. The private luxury condo that the studio is found in also has facilities like an infinity pool, children’s pool, sauna and gym, so you can stay active while on holiday. What’s not to like?

The lovely superhosts of this listing strive to make your stay the best it can be. Apart from tastefully furnishing the apartment with all the necessities and added extras like a private bathtub, they’ve gone the extra mile to provide a portable WiFi modem as well. For those who are unfamiliar, a portable WiFi device allows those who connect to it to surf the internet, even if they do not have a local SIM card. This works out great if you don’t want to incur the cost of data roaming and can’t get a local SIM conveniently! If the listing isn’t available on your vacation dates, don’t fret just yet! Have a look at their other listings in the same building for one that hopefully is vacant for the duration of your stay.

This luxurious studio truly is a sight for sore eyes! Its well-decorated interior makes it feel more like a modern show-flat than a hotel or home. Why not make the most of it and experience extravagant living? Due to the mezzanine floor and number of breakables in the apartment, the hosts do not allow kids to stay for their safety. This makes it perfect for couples, young and old, who are looking for a place to enjoy quality time with one another on a romantic getaway. As the space fits up to four, groups would enjoy this listing too.
