  Stilt houses on the river
by DanielF

After a few days in cosmopolitan Kuala Lumpur, we started our expedition with a short ride through rural communities and palm tree plantations to Kuala Selangor.

This is a very traditional Malay town on the Straits of Malacca whose old part still consists of wooden stilt houses built on the river. However, the main reason why we went there was to experience a nocturnal canoe ride in the river mangroves where the lightflies perform astupendous natural show every night. No pictures could be taken of this surprising natural phenomenon, but you can see other aspects of Kuala Selangor by clicking here.
