Salak Tinggi is the capital of Sepang district in the state of Selangor, Malaysia. Salak Tinggi ERL station is located in Salak Tinggi where the KLIA Transit Express Rail Link (ERL) from KLIA to KL Sentral stops every 30 minutes. Salak Tinggi is also known as the Airport City.

Salak Tinggi is the home to KFC Hatchery, a latex glove factory owned by Wembley Rubber Products (WRP), the workshop complex of the Engineering Division of the Fire and Rescue Department, the Veterinary Public Health Laboratory of the Department of Veterinary Services Malaysia as well as the Technology Incubation Centre and National Metrology Laboratory for the Standards and Research Institute of Malaysia (SIRIM). Government agencies such as Pos Malaysia, National Registration Department, and SYABAS are located at the town heart of Bandar Baru Salak Tinggi and Kosmopleks.

As Bandar Baru Salak Tinggi is the nearest housing estate to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, its residents are mainly airport ground staff and airline crew. Kota Warisan is a relatively new township located in the suburb of Bandar Baru Salak Tinggi.

Salak Tinggi is inundated annually by motorsports fans when it hosts the Formula-1 Malaysian Grand Prix at the Sepang International Circuit (SIC). Most travellers stay at the Pan Pacific Hotel, Concorde Inn, Cyberview Lodge, Empress Hotel or De Palma Inn although the recently opened Transit Service Centre budget hotel at the Airport City Business Centre is becoming increasingly popular due its proximity to the KLIA and LCCT airports (15 minutes drive away) and is beside the Salak Tinggi ERL Station where there is a twice-hourly KLIA Transit service to KLIA and KL Sentral (Central transportation hub in Kuala Lumpur city).
