From a small agricultural school in 1931, UPM is now a leading learning and Research University in Malaysia. Previously known as Universiti Pertanian Malaysia, UPM offers studies in agriculture, agro-bio and science. The Serdang main campus is huge. In it there is never ending land area for various agricultural farms. Some of the places for photography include: cow grazing and dairy farm, Bukit Ekspo UPM, mosque, deer farm, Equestrian Centre, Muzium Warisan Melayu UPM, pine tree farm, Faculty of Engineering.
Charge for any shooting activity is RM100 per hour with minimum 2 hours session. Any inquiries and booking can be made through official letter to Chief Executive Officer or phone call and email to En. Abdul Rahim at 03-8947 1161 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. With the convenience of email, who writes official letter anymore these days, right?

The main roads are tarred. The off-road section should not be missed as it takes one through rustic sights. Most of this section is laterite with the tail end section being grassy. Lembu Tenusu is a cow farm where cows are bred for milk. Deers at the Deer Farm are fairly tamed, in fact they are more afraid of people than people of them. Still do not go too close to them and view from a safe distance. The horses at the Equestrian Centre are friendly but sometimes can be over-friendly, biting and pulling on your clothes. The heritage Malay kampong houses at the Muzium Warisan Melayu (Malay Heritage Museum) are old houses from other states that had been dismantled and rebuilt at the new location. They can be viewed by the public from the outside only.
Then we drove to the farm ( ladang) not far away from the main campus. At first, we wish to enter the farm area to look for the famous tree ( so famous in MVs and drama, especially ghost drama I have no idea why), but the fence was locked up so we ended up to visit the ladang ternakan with cows.
