What you can expect
Escape the busy city of Kuala Lumpur with a trip to the hamlet town of Kuala Selangor. Enjoy a boat ride along the river banks at Kampung Kuantan to catch the colonies of fireflies producing magnificent twinkling lights. Complete your evening with dinner at a local seafood restaurant.
Your journey starts in Kuala Selangor, situated north-west of Kuala Lumpur. You can see Fort Altingsburg, built by the second sultan of Selangor in the 18th century to defend the city against foreign invasion.
A bird sanctuary park is located at the foot of the fort, where you can watch for migratory birds. Also found here are mysterious silvered leaf monkeys, a primate descended from the lineage of Old World monkeys.
Continue your trip with a boat ride along the mangrove swamps. Here, catch these bioluminescent fireflies flashing and producing glimmering lights in synchronised rhythm. Conclude your night tour with local set Chinese dinner at a local restaurant.
