Kuala Selangor - A fascinating diversity of landscape

In May last year, under the umbrella of JJCF we went for a photohunting trip to Kuala Selangor. Few car convoyed searching for photo opportunity along the coastal of Selangor. Kuala Selangor is an old royal capital of Selangor Darul Ehsan

We start our journey from Shah Alam. Our first stop is the Kuala Selangor Nature Park, a mangrove reserve managed by MNS. The mangroves and mudflats area covers approximately 800 acres and is the home to various wildlife such as monkey, migratory birds and amphibian.

After spending few hours in the park, we went for a quick lunch at the town and head toward our second destination, the paddy field around Tanjong Karang. We choose this site as the paddyfield at Tanjong Karang area is nearer than the Sekinchan area.

Soon afterward, we went hunting for the sunset at Pantai Remis, also within the vicinity of Kuala Selangor. We initially hunting for a fishing jetty called Bagan Tengkorak (if not mistaken) but instead of Bagan Tengkorak, we found other jetty which is not favourable. So we went direct to Pantai Remis for the sunset.

In conclusion, Kuala Selangor offer a diversity of landscape. From mangrove area , to paddy field, fishing jetty and even the beach are available within single vicinity. I'm sure to return here to recapture the beauty of Kuala Selangor.
