"Malaysia is an ideal destination for an exotic fishing holiday, whether you're hoping to reel in a barracuda or a blue marlin, a mahi-mahi or a Malaysian mahseer. Fishing the country's rivers offers as much adventure as the open sea, as much of the nation's interior is rain forest. To ensure that you are located near where the fish are biting, reserve a room at a fishing resort."
This destination is ideal for anglers. You're not on the mainland, but in a hotel at sea as on an oil platform. You are abandoned by everyone, except by sports enthusiasts like you who also enjoy fishing. The place is
called "Kelong Paradise Waterfront Resort", but it's also known as "Banglo Samudra".
It's located 15 nautical miles off Sabak Bernam in the Strait of Melaka. This is the one place where anglers can fish in peace.
To reach the exclusive "Kelong Paradise" you have to go to the little fishing village Bagan Nakhoda Omar. Bagan Nakhoda Omar is not known as a recreational area and it's not known as one of the tourist spots in the state of Selangor. Hopefully the information we provided,
taht the recreational areas could become a tourist attraction in Malaysia and abroad.
It's approximately 20 minutes away from the town Sabak Bernam, before you reach the beach Bagan Nakhoda Omar. This is where the jetty for the Kelong Paradise Waterfront Resort is leaving. You'll be transported from Bagan Nahkoda Omar jetty to the kelong in a 10-seater boat.
Sabak Bernam is not so far away from the town of Kuala Selangor. From Kuala Lumpur you'll drive via Sungai Buloh to Kuala Selangor.
