About Kubang Semang

The name Kubang Semang comes from two words: kubang is a Malay word for a water hole, especially one filled with muddy water that buffaloes love to wallow in, and semang is the Malay name for the Rangoon Creeper Vine (Quisqualis densiflora)

The only prominent landmark here is the Kubang Semang Mosque (Masjid Jamek Kubang Semang), located near the Butterworth-Kulim Expressway.

The Butterworth-Kulim Expressway splits Kubang Semang into two. The town proper is located north of the expressway while the traditional Kubang Semang village is south of the expressway.
