Kuala Gula is a mangrove estuary that houses a fishing village, nature resort and bird sanctuary about 50km west of Taiping in Kerian district. A popular bird watching spot for raptors, the locals subsist on tourism, cockle farming, fish cultivation and producing dried shrimp paste (Belacan). The surrounding wetlands also host an official rehabilitation programme for the endangered milky stork.
