So, the question is – how is the river water glowing in blue colour? Well, it is simply because of bioluminescent phytoplankton. Or, in simpler terms, light-producing bacteria. These organisms dubbed, “Blue Tears” give off a vibrant colour that fills the river with magnificent blue streaks. Caught your eye? We’re wide-eyed too!

To catch this spectacular phenomenon, be sure to visit Kuala Selangor during night-time. It is said that high tide and dark skies are optimum conditions for when the phenomenon is at its peak. Also, avoid going to this attraction when it is raining because rain hampers the appearance of the electric blue streaks. Looking for something to do over the weekend? We suggest making a trip down to Kuala Selangor for a road trip!

Unique to Malaysia – the Sky Mirror is aesthetically perfect for a photo opt. When the sea tide is ideal and the sand bar emerges, what surfaces is a completely reflective piece of land that stretches for miles. Head on over on a sunny day and be amazed at how beautiful the clouds look behind the lens of your camera. There is plenty of space for everyone to get a great photo, so fret not and enjoy the view! It’s time to get creative, folks.
