View Larger Map
Nine of us inclusive 3 children in a Toyota Unser started our journey from Ampang KL around 11.45am.We used the Sungai Buloh way and reached Kuala Selangor in time to have our lunch at 1.30pm. We have our lunch at this Restoran Makanan Laut Jeti Seafood, Pasir Penambang. The taste and quality of the food here was just ordinary. It cost us Rm137.50. for the following.
1)Cat fish in clay pot - Rm22.00
2)Steam fish - Rm45.00
3)Vegetable - Rm10.00
4)Vegetable - Rm16.00
5)Shell Fish (Lala) - Rm16.00
6)Soft Bean curd - Rm16.00
7)Tea + Ice - Rm 4.50
8)Rice for 8nos - Rm 8.00
I still remember the the River View Sea Food Restaurant beside it was much more tastier than this when we had our lunch here few years ago. We bought some dried shrimps, ikan bilis and some fish snacks from the store nearby.
We spend some time at one of the local Chinese Temple before proceed to take the train to the Bukit Melawati. When we approached to the light house a group of leaf monkeys was awaiting here to welcome us with open arms. Feeding the monkeys can work up an appetite and fun.
Then it’s time for the main event Kuala Selangor's most famous attraction - The Fireflies, which can be seen at either Bukit Belimbing or Kampung Kuantan. We chose Bukit Belimbing as was suggested by the local folk as they are using silent electric boats with better facilities and environment , where Kampung Kuantan is using sampan (traditional boat). We enjoyed our set dinner for 10 persons for Rm160.00 all in (7 dishes + 1 soup + unlimited refill of rice + drink) at the Bukit Belimbing Fireflies Restaurant. Then we purchased the boat trip tickets from the Ticket Counter which cost Rm12.00 for adult and Rm7.00 for children between 3 to 12 years old. The boat trip (which could fit in 15 persons per boat) took us to the swamp, and there was where the amazing journey started. We saw thousands of fireflies sparkling in the thick mangrove along both sides of the river banks, a wonderful phenomena resembling rows of brightly lit Christmas trees. This is truly a sight to behold and a must see when in Kuala Selangor.
