Have you seen those stunning pictures on the internet of people who are posing completely somewhere fantastical and wondered if the picture is an excellent work of photoshop, wishing to visit there yourself? Known as one of the most surreal places in the world and compared to the beauty of Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni, you must visit Sky Mirror Kuala Selangor to see this place and its captivating beauty with your own eyes.
Sasaran Sky Mirror of Kuala Selangor is a plateau in the middle of the sea and for most of the year, it is submerged under the sea but when the tides are low, this incredible spot becomes accessible for exploring.
Sasaran Beach’s Sky Mirror is a popular tourist spot and people come from various countries to visit here. It is especially popular among families and a great place as a getaway from the daily hustle and bustle of life. If you are an anime fan, you will definitely love this place that resembles the sight of Demon Slayer Tanjiro’s heart!
Sky Mirror is a very unique place but what makes it even more special is the fact that you cannot just decide on visiting this place and come here whenever you want. Sky Mirror Kuala Selangor is visible only during the times when there are low tides.
Ideally, it is during a full moon and the new moon period when sky mirror tours are possible. Visiting Sky Mirror is only possible by boat because of its uncharted location in the sea. That’s why you have to work with an inflexible schedule for the best experience here and book your boat tickets and Sky Mirror tour accordingly.
As you might know, high and low tides are caused by the moon and so, you can keep an eye on the moon cycle and make bookings for a tour to Sky Mirror on the best day possible!
