Kuala Selangor is a town situated in Selangor, Malaysia, quiet famous among tourists from all over the world. This is a small historic town with attractions such as the fireflies and silver leaf monkeys.

You can easily travel from Kuala Lumpur, the travel time is less from here. I have taken an express bus to Selangor, I booked online tickets from Redbus Malaysia, and this really reduced my travel hassles.

Plan your trip to Kuala Selangor accordingly, since there are number of spots with hidden gems from the past that you must-see. You must try the yummy seafood here, its fresh from the sea.
