The quiet hamlet of Kampung Kuantan in Kuala Selangor has one of the largest firefly colonies in the world. On arrival, visit ‘Kota Melawati’, formerly known as ‘Fort Altingsburg’, Royal Mausoleum, ruined Fort and the legendary 100 steps (a fabled execution block). The bird park at the foot of Bukit Melawati is an ideal place for watching migratory birds. If lucky, you may spot the Silvered-leaf monkeys, rare species of bird, butterflies and etc..

At dusk, we proceed for a sumptuous seafood dinner at a fishing village. After dinner, we take a short drive to Kampung Kuantan to board a typical Malay wooden row boat. The skilled oarsmen will row upstream into the darkness of the quiet night to witness one of nature's phenomena. As soon as your eyes are well adjusted to the dark, behold to witness rows of flashing Christmas trees along the river bank! The tiny twinkling orangy lights amongst the mangrove trees are synchronized, rhythmic scintillation produced by thousands of fireflies. Truly a magical sight!

Notes: Please wear flat shoes and bring insect repellent.
