Rawang is a town of Gombak district in the state of Selangor, Malaysia. Rawang has shown a tremendous growth since the PLUS North South Highway was opened on the mid-1990s. To reach the town centre, one must drive about 25 minutes (during non-peak hours) from Kuala Lumpur city centre by using PLUS North South Highway.
