About Selangor Fruit Valley
Selangor Fruit Valley (SFV) is developed by Selangor Agricultural Development Corporation (PKPS as from Perbadanan Kemajuan Pertanian Selangor in Malay).
They started way beforehand. In 2002, they exported start fruit from the 500 hectares they made. Then, they closed for a while and came back stronger in 2015. The place has already expanded to 1,000 hectares and focuses on agrotourism. SFV has various attractions of activities relating to the agriculture sector, located on KM7 along with the towns of Batang Berjuntai.
SFV planted around 25 crops, including Pandan & Matag Coconut, Nangchem (combination of jackfruit and cempedak), Pineapple and tons of others.
SFV has tons of packages that you can enjoy, and I would personally say that it’s for all age groups, especially for fruit lovers. But, in general, it’s open from Thursday to Sunday, from 9.00 am until 4.00 pm. Do take note that it’s closed on Friday.
So, plan your visit and make your prior bookings to enjoy a package of activities such as Tropical Fruits Farm, Herbs & Spices Garden, Selangor Traditional House, Deer Park, Rabbit Park, Plucking Pineapple and Harvesting Pandan Coconut.
Let’s move to the six best things to do in SFV below.
Best Things To Do in Selangor Fruit Valley
There are tons of packages that you can enjoy your day in SFV at a very affordable price, like 진짜 even when you do walk-in!
Selangor Fruit Valley ticket for walk-in included tram ride around the farm, visit deer park, rabbit park and Selangor Traditional House with free cut fruits are:
- RM15/per person (adult)
- RM10/per person (children, senior citizen and disabled)
There are also other additional activities, such as pineapple and coconut picking, which I will tell you more about in this section.
1. Tram Ride in the Farm
Since this place is enormous, it’s 1,000 hectares FYI—a tram ride is a life saviour. So once you reach there, you can park at free designated parking, purchase the Selangor Fruit Valley ticket at the counter, and the tram will take you to Centre Point. Once you reach there, Carambola Pavilion is the best to start your day at SFV in the morning because of the view. Since it’s an event place, take note you may not enjoy the lookout area.
No worries, though, since there is Rimbun Cafe, installation, are and Eco Bridge in front of the pavilion where you can satisfy your posing and photography skills. Once your ride arrives, they will bring you to the next destination.
2. Deer Park
Time to see Bambi in real life, well, Timorensis deer, to be exact. All the cuties came from Indonesia and East Timor. As a herbivore, they can eat a variety of leaves, fruits and grasses. But, at SFV, we bribed them with bread. They also have wild deer, like the spotted one, but they’re more comfortable sitting at the back.
3. Rabbit Park
Your stress will be gone once you reach this park. There are tons of cute rabbits running freely in the garden, and I even saw guinea pigs too. If you want to do a bit of exercise, you can walk the stairs up and view them from the above. But, seeing them up close would be perfect since they can put the rabbit on top of your head for picture-perfect.
4. Selangor Traditional House aka Rumah Kampung
When it’s hot, Rumah Kampung is a pit stop that will help you quench your thirst. While you’re reminiscing the traditional house with classic Malay songs, you can also enjoy fresh Pandan Coconut for RM3. I still can taste how sweet and tasty it is during that hot day.
5. Plucking Pineapple
I like hands-on activities like this. Not going to lie, I’m a bit worried that I will feel anxious like my stay at The Sticks, but I had fun, especially when I brought back a sweet and tasty pineapple. Please take note that you can bring it home with extra payment at RM5/1kg. The best part is in 2022, and they’re planning to do happy hour on Saturday and Sunday, where you can enjoy the view of drone spraying fertiliser.
The price for plucking pineapple packages is RM15/per person. To enjoy this activity, you need to have 10 pax and above. It’s included with a tram ride around the farm, visit deer park, rabbit park and Selangor Traditional House with free cut fruits.
6. Harvesting Coconut Pandan
It’s a coconut party here in SFV. Well, you have to earn it by learning how to harvest it properly first. Then, you can either enjoy a fresh-cut coconut drink with a DIY spoon or bring it back home for free. It’s heavy, but it will be worth it, especially if you’re working in hot weather the next day.
The price for harvesting coconut pandan packages is RM10/per person. To enjoy this activity, you need to have 10 pax and above. It’s included with a tram ride around the farm, visit deer park, rabbit park and Selangor Traditional House with free cut fruits.
They said it was a new year, new you, and SFV got many plans. Senior Assistant Manager (Production) at SFV, Raja Muhammad Faiz Raja Bazaid, told us there would be more animals, grapes and nadir garden (rare plant-like Pokok Nona), chalet, ATV ride and more in the future.
But, let’s talk about the latest or the nearest launch date.
- Cycling track: To cyclist, you can enjoy a safe ride inside 6km SFV cycling track. For RM15/adult and RM10/children, the cyclist can get fresh pandan coconut and one cup of cut fruits. But, you need to bring your own bicycle yea!
- Fruit seeds, plant and tree for sale in Nursery Buah-Buahan SFV: It runs every Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 4pm, near the parking space. There are variety type of fruit and vegetables seeds and also fertiliser for sale.
- Fishing: Around January or February 2022, they plan to do a fishing competition at their lake.
- Learn how to make salted eggs: It’s an interactive activity where you can learn how to make salted eggs by yourself. Well, they said they already stock tons of duck eggs, so we will see when!
Good job, PKPS, for developing Selangor Fruit Valley! There are a few things that they need to improve here and there. Hopefully, I can visit there again to try the new attractions. Psst, it’s near my house anyway!
