Kuala Selangor

Kuala Selangor is a small off the beaten path town with an old fashioned kampung atmosphere where local fishermen still ply their ancient trade.

Buses run here from KL's Puduraya bus and taxi station and the trip takes about and hour and a half.

The town itself is just one long row of shops next to the old bus station.

Firefly Park

The natural light show of local fireflies can be seen at Kuala Kuantan, about 9km's east of Kuala Selangor.

Boats take you on a 45 minute tour through the mangroves where you see the fireflies sending each messages of love by 'flashing' at each other.

They only gather in Berambang trees along the banks of Sungai Selangor.

Glorious seafood

Being so close to the sea and mangroves, Kuala Selangor has many fine seafood restaurants.

Many KL-ites come here on weekends to savour their favourite seafoods in a kampung style atmosphere.

    Not far from KL; Thanks for the tips Robert, I will think about next time I pass by KL. Sunset, seafood, may be white wine. . . perfect!

    Oh yes, your Michael sounds like the perfect find! These are the gems that make VT what it is :-)) Fireflies, how cute :-) And I'll go and make my ginger tea right now (but from teabags oh well)

    It seems you hit the jackpot with your tour operater! Very interesting tips here, including those irresistable little monkeys! I remember chasing 'lightning bugs' around our lawn in Canada as a youngster and briefly catching a few for a closer look!

    The Firefly Tour sounds like fun. Good that you found a reliable tour guide, this can make or break a holiday.

    Adorable monkeys :-) And I love ginger tea, but adding ice cream might make it even tastier. Isn't it great when you find a local guide who will go the extra mile to give you a special experience?

    Are you sure that 'ginger tea,' and not 'ginger beer???' The colour looks a bit suspicious! You look like you were having great fun Robert!
