Framed by a backdrop of rainforest and hills, heritage shophouses from colonial days mingle alongside clusters of traditional houses - Life here is unhurried, pleasant and peaceful, unfettered by the constraints of modern living and conveniences. Walking around town and admiring its architectural landscape, little has changed from the colonial era in pace of life.
Pertak Siring offers an environment like no other -- with a dynamic and attentive caretaker of like-minded travellers, it is set in a historic building that boasts a design - colonial, curated interior and surrounded by breezy environment.

Guests may call the host at any time if needed. Depending on the time of arrival, some guests may be required to pick-up keys to the unit in KL. Guests may also request for the keys to be delivered to KKB - depending on host availability.
KKB has retained most of its charm with traditional and quaint shophouses, a 1930s clock tower and an old fire station.
A Buddhist temple that survived the flood was refurbished in the 1980s and is also another attraction while Cecil Ranking’s grave might be a stop for those interested in KKB’s history. A monument was also built in the town to commemorate the KKB flood.
Colonial shop houses still make up most of KKB’s architectural landscape, spanning from the 1920s to the 1980s, which makes it ideal for pleasant walking tours. Its grid-like streets are made up of sundry shops, eateries, a traditional barber and even a former cinema, converted into an entertainment centre.
Visitors can also enjoy the cool weather as KKB is surrounded by lush trees and tropical jungle. Cyclist enthusiasts can be seen especially during the weekend wondering the KKB environment and finally taking a break/rest at the Mamak corner shop in the town.
Typical tourist attractions that can be explored in KKB include a tourist information centre and the old railway station. There are a few budget hotels, a golf course, bus terminal and train station, but not much else exists in terms of infrastructure and facilities.
Whitewater rafting is one of the main activities here at Sungai Selangor. Chilling waterfalls can also be visited, but care must be taken at all times especially during raining season. Golfers will be glad to know that KKB Golf and Country Club is available for your use.
