The Fireflies Park Resort has a privately-run fireflies tour. The crowd here is smaller than the one in Kampung Kuantan and therefore, the queue is shorter. The river is also cleaner than the one in Kampung Kuantan. The electric boats here are completely silent and run on battery which therefore causes no pollution to the environment of the Fireflies Sanctuary. The boats are equipped with hard canopy and everyone on board gets a life-jacket. The boat service starts at 7.45pm to 10.30pm every night. Adults pay RM10.00 while children pay RM6.00 only. One boat can accomodate 12 - 15 people but it will go ahead with the journey even when the boat is not full. Ticketing booth opens at 7.30pm.
You should take this tram ride because no cars are allowed on the hill during weekends. Bukit Melawati offers the tram ride to the top of Bukit Melawati, stops for fifteen minutes and then proceeds down the hill. It cost RM 2.00 for adults and RM 1.00 for children. However, the entrance to Bukit Melawati is free of charge and it opens from 9.00 m to 4.30pm.
Kuala Selangor is very much asssociated with seafood due to its vicinty to the Selangor river & the Straits of Malacca. The seafood retaurants are located in a small fishing townlet called Pasir Penambang. The seafood restaurants here serve "halal" seafood and you can see many local Malay Muslims, eating together with the Chinese & Indians.
There is a supposedly popular Fireflies destination off Kuala Selangor. They called it `Clip Clip' and is located at Kg Kuantan. For those driving here on your own, my humble advice is don't as the road (at this juncture in November 2004) is under some repairs and not roadworthy at all. The two-hour drive from Petaling Jaya/KL can be quite exasperating and frustrating as you get massage all the way....
I believe there is another Kg Kuantan near to PJ and we mistakenly thought Clip Clip was so near...
Bukit Melawati, the hill overlooking the town.
It provided an ideal site for monitoring shipping in the straits of Melaka, first by the sultans of Selangor, then by the Dutch and British.
It is now also a place for sighting the "New Moon". A latticed structure has been constructed for the purpose of sighting the new moon to determine the date of fasting month of Ramadhan.
There is also a lighthouse, a wooden resthouse, and several monkeys on the hill.
You can walk up or there is a road that does a clockwise loop.
The centerpiece of Shah Alam is the Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Shah Mosque.
This huge, gleaming mosque that has the largest domes and tallest minarets in the world. at 140m. The colors of the mosque are blue and silver, reflected in the giant aluminium dome.
The mosque will accommodate up to 24,000 worshipers and it is the largest in Malaysia.
The tree is surrounded by fireflies. Instead it is the habitat of the fireflies.. so what you actually can see is christmans tress along the river bank.
There are 2 fireflies park in Kuala Selangor. One is Kampung Kuantan and the other is Sg Belimbing. Kg Kuantan using sampan while sg belimbing using boat.
I went for both but found that Sg Belimbing is nicer coz the river is not so dirty.
Bukit Melawati overlooks the straits of Melaka and it provides an ideal site for a lighthouse as a guide for shipping along this part of the coast.
This hill has the view of the mongrove swamp, Taman Alam, river mouth and the Straits of Melaka. Great place to view sunset with the monkeys.
You've got to see lots of different kind of animals. Lots of different kind of monkeys, lizard was bathing itself on the pond, dragon fly, an eagle and etc.
