Kuala Selangor Firefly Boat Tour Including Dinner and Hotel Transfer from Kuala Lumpur

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    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.

    PS, It's not necessary to take a tour - just go there and buy your tickets and wait in line. There's no need for a tour.
