When the sun goes down at Kuala Selangor, twinkling fireflies light up the berembang trees along the Selangor River. Experience the natural display on a 8-hour tour from Kuala Lumpur that includes a boat trip, seafood buffet, and round-trip transport from your centrally-located hotel.
What to Expect
Begin with pickup at your Kuala Lumpur hotel, or at the Malaysia Tourist Centre, then travel to Kuala Selangor, a 1-hour journey towards to the coast. Take a break along the way to see Fort Altingsburg at Bukit Melawati, where you’ll get views of a hilltop lighthouse, and see a thriving population of silver leaf monkeys, long-tailed macaques, and tropical birds.

Visit a nearby fishing village for a Malaysian-style seafood buffet, then continue to Kampung Kuantan, a launch point on the Selangor River. Travel along the river in a quiet, eco-friendly rowboat so you don’t disturb the fireflies, or kelip-kelip, and watch them glow in the evening air. Discover the fireflies’ mysterious synchronicity: though each firefly flashes at its own rhythm, the lights slowly align until thousands of bugs light up in unison, and coastal Malaysia is considered the best place in the world to see the phenomenon.

After your boat tour, return to shore for return transfer to your Kuala Lumpur hotel, with drop-off at roughly 10:30pm.

SCAM: will not go to the places promised

DO NOT BOOK. SCAM. This organisation asks their drivers to go the big ferry location, where all the motorised and very crowded boats leave which will not go into the mangroves, but only will stay on the river bank sides. Needless to say is that...More

Fireflies are fabulous

We thought this was a wonderful experience. We did NOT however take an official tour, but rather a Grab car (like Uber or Lyft) and arrived early and waited a long time for the boat, but felt it was worth it. It's about an hour...More

We were there in December and there were plenty. However for the previous two nights there were none to be seen. The guides on the boats know where they are and will take you there not a problem.
