Kelip-Kelip Trip, Kuala Selangor

Last weekend, we were invited by my sister-in-law to visit Kuala Selangor which took us about one and a half hour driving from our place. I never knew that Kuala Selangor has some tourist attractions. We stayed in a floating chalet where the kids enjoy feeding fish and tortoise just outside the room.

At around 9.30 pm, we took a boat from the resort's jetty to experience Kuala Selangor's biggest attraction, the firefly watching. We were cruising along the riverbank in darkness and not long after that, we were greeted by thousands of fireflies or locally known as kelip-kelip. It was fascinating to see those tiny lights on the trees along the riverbank (No kidding, the trees look like Christmas trees).

The next day we went to Kuala Selangor Nature Park to observe wild animals like monkeys, crabs, birds, lizards at the wildlife sanctuary of Kuala Selangor (we were also accompanied by a lot of mosquitoes).

After a few hours of nature walk, we took a tram up to the historical Bukit Melawati and fed some long-tailed macaques and silverleaf monkeys there. As we arrived at the top of the hill, one of the monkeys ran after my daughter. She was running in circle until she realised that she has to drop the plastic bag full of bananas that she was holding. It was hilarious!

We had good seafood for lunch before heading back to KL.
