KUALA SELANGOR IS A SMALL COASTAL VILLAGE NORTHWEST OF KUALA LUMPUR. ON THIS RIVER YOU CAN SPOT THE FAMOUS FIREFLIES (KELIP-KELIP IN BAHASA MELAYU) DURING EVENINGS/NIGHTS. THE FIREFLIES ALL ARE FOUND ON THE MANGROVE TREE SPECIES CALLED BEREMBANG. IT IS SAID THAT THIS IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST FIREFLY COLONIES IN THE WORLD.

FIREFLIES ARE ALSO KNOWN 'LIGHTNING BUGS' AND THEY SHINE BRIGHTLY AT THE NIGHT TO ATTRACT A SUITABLE PARTNER. APPARENTLY, THEY ARE ABLE TO SHINE DURING THE DAY TOO BUT HUMANS THEN CANNOT SEE IT. THEY ARE ONLY SEEN AT NIGHT IN AND ALONG THE 'BEREMBANG' TREES ALONG THE SELANGOR RIVER.

THERE ARE A COUPLE OF NICE RESTAURANTS WHERE THEY MAINLY SERVE FRESH SEAFOOD. RESTORAN KUALA SELANGOR IS WHERE WE ENJOYED A VERY NICE LOCAL MEAL AT PASIR PENAMBANG.
