If you have a day off and you wish to explore the wonders of nature with your family, Kuala Selangor is the place for you! Located in the state of Selangor, this quiet town is popular for fireflies and seafood, but the fun doesn’t end there. There are many more attractions to explore in Kuala Selangor.
If you’re not sure where to start, don’t worry. Book a Kuala Selangor Day Tour on KKday and let us take care of the rest! Here’s the itinerary for an exciting day trip that starts with fun in the sun and ends with a night under the stars:
Snap photos at Sky Mirror
Sky Mirror is a must-visit attraction in Kuala Selangor that is only accessible at low tide. Usually, this attraction is submerged under the sea. During low tide, the sandbank emerges, giving visitors access to this “secret island.” The shallow waters here act almost like a mirror, reflecting the sky above, thus the name Sky Mirror.
This creates unique photo opportunities for visitors. Strike a pose and take captivating pictures with a natural mirror effect. To really stand out, be sure to wear bright-coloured clothing. For an added wow factor, use fun props such as colourful umbrellas. This is certainly the epitome of Instagramable attractions!
See wild eagles in their natural habitat
After snapping pictures at Sky Mirror, take a relaxing boat ride and see dozens of majestic eagles soaring through the sky. We usually only see eagles in movies and TV shows. This is your chance to see these beautiful creatures in their natural habitat!
Be mesmerized by countless sparkling fireflies
Kuala Selangor is home to one of the largest firefly colonies in the world. The enchanting fireflies are certainly a must-see while you’re here! Cruise along the river and watch countless fireflies light up the night sky with their radiant glow. Twinkling fireflies decorate the surrounding trees, making the riverbank look like Christmas all year round.
Marvel at sea sparkles, also known as the ‘Blue Tears’ phenomenon
Just as you thought the night was ending, there’s more! As you’re cruising down the river in the dark of night, be amazed as the water around you begins to light up. The dark water begins to glow a bright blue as the boat makes its way through the water.
Though it looks like a scene right out of a science-fiction movie, this attraction is completely natural. This phenomenon is due to bioluminescent microorganisms in the river that light up when disturbed.
This is an absolutely stunning sight to see in person, but it’s a little tricky to capture on camera. If you’re up for the challenge, be sure to bring along a good camera, and hopefully, you’ll get a beautiful shot of the sea sparkles.
