Kuala Selangor is a small kampung (village) surrounded by coconut and palm tress, located along the Sungai Selangor. Magical Fireflies are only available in two places in the world, and one of them is in Kampung Kuantan located in Kuala Selangor. Apart from being famous for fireflies, Kuala Selangor has several breathtaking natural attractions.
Kuala Selangor Nature Park, or ‘Taman Alam’ as it is colloquially called, is a haven for flora and fauna. The forest is home to the Silvery Lutung Monkey, an endangered primate species, and is also a breeding ground for diverse marine life. Kampung Kuantan Firefly Park, famous for fireflies, is one of the three places along with Pasir Penambang and Kampung Bukit Belimbing where one can witness fireflies. Visitors get to travel on a sampan, a traditional wooden boat to witness fireflies in close proximity.
Melawati Hill or Bukit Melawati, famous for panoramic sunsets, the silvered-lutung monkeys, and long-tailed macaque monkeys, Redang beach for its sunrise, sunsets, and migratory birds, and Remis beach are famous natural attractions to visit. Another notable attraction in Kuala Selangor is Sasaran Sky Mirror. A growing site in terms of popularity, it is a sandbank that emerges for a few hours in the morning, only on certain dates based on the lunar month, to produce a mirror-like reflection of the sky in the water which is totally worth the time and visit.
Kuala Selangor is best explored in a private vehicle from Kuala Lumpur (70km).
