We checked into the Concorde Hotel Shah Alam and enjoyed a scrumptious dinner, after which our Green Council had a meeting as a review of what we have done and achieved over the span of the academic year of 2012. After that, the tired councillors returned back to their rooms and chilled out!
How tired. Ho-hum.
We had to entertain …
The aroma of bread being baked in the huge ovens and manufactured in large batches, packaged into plastic wrappers and sent out in trucks welcomed us into this gargantuan factory located in Shah Alam. We were taught the entire manufacturing process in this factory, but sadly we were not allowed to take photographs because of some trade secrets of some sort...

... and hello to the yacht! The handover was conducted by the most laid back person I’ve ever met, and consisted of him saying “so, is there anything you don’t know about this boat?” Then grabbing a chart and pointing out the good snorkelling places. Not an inventory or crew list in sight, and it only occurred to me later that I hadn’t signed anything before we left with a 41 foot yacht! The next five days were ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsConcorde Hotel Shah Alam
The hotel rooms were spacious, and the hallways were rather elegant (though dimly-lit for levels 12 and above). The scenery outside the hotel is picturesque on both sides; either you get the mosque or the gardens. The facilities were relatively good and the service was alright.
However, we found a caterpillar in the rice during one of their buffet breakfasts, after which the chefs and waitresses did not dare to come out to apologise after we had complained to them. This really irked me and I stopped eating immediately! There was also no free Wifi which they had promised in their hotel descriptions, requiring a payment of MYR35 per 24 hours! These were very disappointing, in my opinion, for a relatively high-end hotel.
