6 Best Nature Attractions In Selangor To Take A Break From City Life

[Updated 25 March 2021]
There are many attractions in Selangor that deserve a travel bucket list on its own. From nature reserves to awesome parks and beaches, the natural landscape in Selangor is simply amazing. If you think you’ve seen it all, there might still be pockets of attractions you have yet to discover. If you’re ready for some outdoor excitement, check out these nature attractions in Selangor you should visit (or re-visit!) this weekend 😀

1. Kelanang Beach, Banting

While Morib Beach is popular among locals, its neighbour, the Kelanang Beach is also another beach that’s close to Kuala Lumpur. Though it’s not your typical tropical beach with crystal clear water and white sand (it’s not ideal to swim here), it’s still a good option for a nice quick getaway. You can also opt to have a picnic or simply go for a stroll along the beach. The sunset view is perfect for a photo opportunity too.

2. Redang Beach, Sekinchan

 Redang Island in Kuala Terengganu isn’t the only Redang in Malaysia. In fact, there’s a Redang beach located in Sekinchan, so it’s not all about paddy fields when it comes to this area! The beach is popular among locals and can be crowded over the holidays but it offers a lovely sea view. It’s also a great place to fly kites as it can get pretty windy. If kite-flying isn’t your thing, take a stroll and snap plenty of photos against the picturesque background. #HHWT Tip: Planning an Insta-worthy vacay in Sekinchan? Check out these amazing Instagram spots in Sekinchan (besides paddy fields)!

3. Kanching Eco Forest Park

The Taman Eko Rimba Kanching near Rawang, is home to the majestic multi-tiered Kanching Waterfall. To get here, you’d have to do a bit of hiking so this one is perfect adventure seekers. There are 7 levels of the waterfall which can all be accessed by concrete stairway for the first few levels, then steep rocky trails as it gets higher.
This place also offers facilities like a prayer room, and even toilets and shower rooms. But due to COVID-19, there are SOPs implemented for visitors so make sure you find out more about that before you embark on your adventure.

4. Shah Alam Lake Gardens

 The Shah Alam Lake Gardens was said to be the first public park to open in Selangor back in 1985 and it’s still standing strong today! It’s a pretty massive parkland that has so many things to offer.
Besides jogging and cycling, there are children’s playgrounds and places to rent paddle boats and kayaks. The iconic Blue Mosque is also nearby and you can find plenty of halal eateries around the area. 

5. Paya Indah Discovery Wetlands

For a wholesome day out with friends or family, the Paya Indah Discovery Wetlands is perfect because it comes with activities such as horseback riding, cycling, and hot air balloon rides. It’s also a great place to learn and experience the biodiversity in Malaysia too.
Besides that, you can go for a lake tour and participate in bird watching. They also have animal feeding sessions where you can feed wildlife like crocodiles and even Malayan porcupines.

6. Melawati Hill

The Melawati Hill which can be found in Kuala Selangor is an attraction that blends both nature and history together. The fortress built on top of the hill in the late 18th century was said to protect the state from invaders. There are other attractions here too like cannons, a lighthouse and a museum.
To get to the top, you’ll have to climb a steep hill or choose to take a ride on a tram. This is a great hangout spot over the weekend as the peak of the hill gives you amazing views of the Kuala Selangor town and even the Straits of Malacca.
Whether you’re taking a stroll on Redang beach in Sekinchan or join a lake tour at Paya Indah Discovery Wetlands, we hope you have the best time exploring the nature attractions in Selangor!

Selangor , Malaysia. The glow of fireflies and the hill with langurs: self-drive

Kuala Selangor is a small provincial town 70 km from Kuala Lumpur. Selangor has managed to capture the attention of visitors to Malaysia from all over the world.Near it there is a river with colonies of fireflies (Kuala Selangor Fireflies). Also in this city you can feed from the hands of rare and very cute monkeys – silver langurs.

Fireflies in Malaysia settled near Kuala Lumpur

How to see fireflies in Kuala Lumpur

A firefly excursion from Kuala Lumpur costs tourists a decent amount for such a trip. An excursion with an English guide is cheaper than with a Russian-speaking one – you can order here>

Excursion with a Russian guide is more expensive and only available on this site>

If the price does not suit you, then you can go to see the fireflies from Kuala Lumpur on your own by bus without the help of guides.But then you have to spend the night at the hotel. One way trip takes 2.5 hours.

Kuala Selangor is a very modest and small town. There is such a nuance – buses to KL run until 19.45. That is, you will not be able to go back by bus. You will have to stay overnight in Selangor or take a taxi to Kuala.

We stayed overnight in Kuala Selangor. We spent the night in a decent Grand Kapar Hotel near the bus station for 80 ringit ($ 20). Our review of the hotel is here.

Kuala Selangor City

Kuala-Selangor itself is not unique.The city can be walked around in 20 minutes. There are no beautiful or historical buildings here, except for a couple of mosques.

In the center of Kuala Selangor

Province of Malaysia

Wide streets, few cars, few people, no sidewalks

Mosque in Kuala Selangor Masjid Jami ‘Sultan Ibrahim

It seems to be a city, not an island, and unusual birds fly here

Where to eat in Selangor

The easiest place to eat is at Pizza Hut, McDuck or KFC.We did not experiment with local cafes and dined at McDonald’s for 22 ringits ($ 5) for two.

Fast food and Malaysia are inseparable

But outside of Kuala Selangor there is something for which we went there with an overnight stay.

Taman Melawati – a hill with tame langur monkeys

Before heading to the fireflies, before it gets dark, tourists visit Melavati Park in the center of Selangor. Only here is there a chance to see flocks of silver langurs with orange cubs.We took this opportunity and by 6 pm we went to the park to see the monkeys. We usually bypass ordinary monkeys, as they are aggressive and arrogant. But the langurs are completely different, they are modest and intelligent

Monkey Hill

At the top, a flock of monkeys can be fed vegetables for 5 ringits

Langurs have chosen Malaysia. If in other countries these cute and beautiful monkeys can be seen, perhaps in zoos and then not in all, then in Selangor a whole mountain in the center of the city is allocated for these monkeys.

Langur cubs are born orange and later acquire a silvery shade of fur

When I was expecting a tasty treat from Slava, but he gave only a leaf. I had to pretend that it was delicious so as not to offend him

Watch the video!

On a hill with an observation deck, langurs feel like full-fledged owners, sharing the territory with snarling and boorish macaques.

They didn’t even pay attention to me.We sat and watched the sunset going far into the sea

And you can just observe how different they are compared to poppies. Langurs are calm, restrained, they will not obsessively beg for food, grin and snarl. And nasty macaques can hiss and bite. However, you cannot pick them up. Only if they get in on their own. Keep in mind that these are wild animals that can bite. Get insurance before traveling to Malaysia.

We already had a meeting with langurs in a park in Penang, but those langurs are wilder and try to stay away from people, but here we can easily catch contact with them.And it’s all free.

The road from the center of Selangor (bass station) to the hill takes on average 25 minutes. There is no public transport in the town. You will have to walk along the road without sidewalks, which is not very calm. But most of the way will go along the backup, the road is not very busy. Only 300 meters along the highway with rushing cars is unpleasant to go. Alternatively, take a taxi. The Uber and Grab apps in Selangor also work. The ride up to the hill costs about 7-10 ringit.

Fireflies in Kuala Selangor.Should I go?

The Firefly Park in Kuala-Selangor beckons like a magnet to those who are not indifferent to the fabulous spectacle. There are only two places where you can watch the millionth colony of fireflies glow in the dark! And one of them is in Malaysia. We read a lot of enthusiastic reviews of tourists and were in anticipation of what we would see, almost a miracle. Bought tickets at the entrance. A private boat for two costs 53 ringits ($ 13). The boatman in the back rowing the oars.

Fireflies, we are coming to you

Almost complete darkness, stars in the sky, silence, broken only by the cry of a night bird, and we are alone with the fireflies.Fireflies shone with small lights almost immediately, as soon as we sailed from the pier. As they say in the reviews, fireflies are like a New Year’s garland. How the lights flash in sync.

There were many fireflies, but certainly not thousands as expected. Perhaps because it was raining that day? Or is it just not the season for them now in November?

The boatman sometimes drives very close to the bushes. I tried to touch them, but the fireflies immediately flew from the trees. And Slava made attempts to photograph them.The most successful photos will look something like this. They say that even cameras for several thousand dollars cannot cope with such a glow and blinking in the dark.

Boats do not carry deep into the river, but ride for about 20 minutes not far from the pier. Perhaps the fireflies would have made a stronger impression in the pitch darkness and away from the illuminated dock, but I doubt it.

The fact is that the fireflies in reality are not as bright and huge as in the advertising photos.In real life, it looks like small pale dots of light flicker on the bushes and sometimes fly. In the photo from the Internet, it does not look like it at all.

We met fireflies back in Sri Lanka. It happened that 1 or 2 fireflies flew into our room on the sly. And when we went to bed and turned off the light, we watched them fly under the ceiling and glow. A very interesting natural phenomenon!

For the sake of a firefly park, you shouldn’t go specially from Kuala Lumpur. Especially if you don’t have enough free time in Malaysia. The country has a huge number of more interesting places.

We were even more delighted with langurs than with fireflies. It is still not clear where there are so many screaming reviews on the Internet about this park with fireflies. How many times to see, but not to goose bumps, of course.

Perhaps, if we had never seen these beetles in real life, then the firefly park in Malaysia would have impressed us more.So, if you, dear readers, have already seen fireflies, then do not expect anything new from this place. A boat trip along the river at night adds a bit of flavor.

The only way to get to the Firefly Park from Selangor is by taxi. We took the Grab taxi and paid 10 ringit one way for a 10 minute ride from our hotel. On the way back we agreed with the driver that he would wait for us.

You need to come to the firefly park near Kuala Lumpur only on weekdays, when people are at a minimum. On weekends, all of Malaysia is resting and going somewhere. Therefore, a queue can easily form. Plus, the locals will make noise. We read reviews that people were waiting for an hour. We went on Wednesday and there were no people at all. Only 4 people on the dock.

Where to stay in Kuala Selangor for the night

We stayed at the Grand Kapar Hotel. The overnight stay cost us 80 ringit. Also stripped 10 ringit tourist tax, as in Malacca. The hotel is new and clean, located right next to the bus station, next to several cafes and a small supermarket.
