Fireflies and Kuala Selangor

Millions of tiny fireflies sparkle and twinkle in thick mangrove to give the impression of brightly lit Christmas trees - a natural phenomenon that can only be seen in two locations in the world.

Barely an hour away from the hustle and bustle of Kuala Lumpur is the rustic town of Kuala Selangor, known for its historical past and massive Mangrove Forests which are home to silver leaf monkeys and migratory birds.

Explore this picturesque area and then enjoy a mouth-watering dinner in a local restaurant before commencing the highlight of the trip.

Board a boat, head upstream and get your camera ready as millions of fireflies sparkle in the thick mangrove along of the river banks of Kampong Kuantan.
