Bangi is a small town situated on the south of the district of Hulu Langat, in Selangor, Malaysia. It is roughly situated between the towns of Kajang (9 kilometres away) and Putrajaya (formerly Prang Besar) (also 9 kilometres away), and is linked to KTM Komuter commuter train services via the Bangi Komuter station. The town is surrounded by palm oil estates; a Malaysian Palm Oil Board/UKM research station is also based close to the town.

Bangi is not to be confused with Bandar Baru Bangi, a newer and larger township several kilometres north, similar to the town only by name and located closer to Kajang.

There is a main road with shops houses on both side of the road. Behind these shophouses, 30 acres of rubber estates were converted to residential housing, now known as Kampong Aman. The town is surrounded by small Malays Kampongs, within 3 kilometers distance, namely, Kampung Bangi, Kampung Bahagia, Kampung Batu Lima, Kampung Rinching. Over the last 20 years, many palm oil estates had been covered to townships.

Within a 3 kilometers distance, there are Seri Putra Bangi, Bukit Mahkota Bangi, Bangi Avenue, Taman Impian and many more.
