Full description
Kuala Selangor, a small town conquered by the Dutch in 1784, is most famous for its fireflies sanctuaries. It is said that this is one of the biggest firefly colonies in the world. Another highlight is the delicious seafood in the most scenic location. It is located well off the normal tourist route and hence still maintains its traditional village atmosphere. This is your best bet for a long peaceful ride away from the busy city. In this tour, you will see the Bukit Melawati. This small peak was once a mighty fortress built to safeguard the state. The Altingburg Lighthouse continues to be the main attraction with an awesome view of the Straits of Malacca. You will also get the chance to meet the unique Silver Leaf Monkeys. The little baby monkeys are born with a golden color, which eventually turns black like the adults.

Our driver Darvi was very friendly and knowledgeable. He stopped multiple times for my young girls to go to the toilet. Batu caves was on the to do list just because we were in Kuala Lumpur. It is worth the visit and climbing the coloured steps. The silver monkeys at the fort are very friendly. Be prepared to be jumped on if you're holding a food sack but you can still pat them. The highlight is definitely the fire flies which look like fairy lights on the trees. All up the kids were exhausted but made some great memories.

Amazing! Such a surreal experience! Our guide Abdul was so informative, well spoken and absolutely generous to all extents! Not only did we get what was promised but we were also taken to many other areas and sites not listed, I.e monkey feeding and palace! Even thought it rained during our time at the Batu Caves, Abdul made it fun and tried his absolute hardest to keep us dry

An amazing evening

Deva was a great guide, with many facts and stories about the temples. The fireflys and seafood are amazing. The trip is completely worth it. Warnings; After the temple, there is an hour+ drive to the firefly park. And the same road-trip after the activity. It wasn't clearly listed in the description. Not a problem, and Deva filled the time with descriptions of the surrounding areas. Also, plan that your shoes might get wet, as it is a tour boat.
