An exciting tour that takes you to view one of Malaysia’s natural wonders – a colony of fireflies
that congregates near a river in Kuala Selangor. At night, it becomes a beautiful light show as the fireflies dance in the night like little lanterns of light. Our journey takes about 1 hour from Kuala Lumpur to reach the town of Kuala Selangor.
There, we first take you on a trip to the past to see Bukit Melawati, where you can see the ruins of a fortress known as Kota Melawati, the Altingsburg lighthouse and various species of local wildlife including silver leaf monkeys, long-tailed macaque, birds and more.
After that, we take you back to Kuala Selangor for a sumptuous dinner. On the way, we will drive by a series of paddy fields where you can see how Malaysia’s staple crop is grown. The rice fields also offer a beautiful view. When night has fallen, we depart to view the fireflies. To get there, we board a boat helmed by skilled boatmen. Lifejackets will be provided. Studies show that male fireflies flash three times a second, while female fireflies flash only once every three seconds. Once we have admired Nature’s light show, we depart back for Kuala Lumpur.
Bukit Melawati – Historical site with many attractions such as the Altingsburg Lighthouse, The Royal Mausoleum and more. Silver leaf monkeys and wildlife roam the area.
