Full description
You will be picked up from your hotel in central Kuala Lumpur and driven to Kuala Selangor, approximately 1.5 hours away. Kuala Selangor is a small village on the banks of the Selangor River. The village is well-known, as you can find millions of fireflies there.   Upon arrival you’ll visit Bukit Melawati, where Fort Altingsburg is located. A lighthouse strands on top of the hill, surrounded by tall trees. Look out for local birds, silvered leaf monkeys and long-tailed macaques. You’ll head to a nearby fishing village for a typical seafood dinner before making your way to Kampung Kuantan.   At around 6:30 PM you’ll board a boat and row along the river to see the fireflies. Millions of fireflies present you with a dazzling display of lights flickering in synchrony, that resemble twinkling electric lights on a Christmas tree. You will be dazzled at the sight. At 8:30 PM, you’ll depart from Kuala Selangor and drive back to Kuala Lumpur in the comfort of a private vehicle.

We really enjoyed the trip, feeding the monkeys was great adventure, the fire flies were nice and new to us. The best thing about the trip was our driver Mr Ramish .. great, informative, talkative and photographer. He let the trip that is a bit expensive beame worth it.

I enjoyed watching fireflies and feeding silver monkeys very much. And the seafood dinner was very good. Besides, my guide, MK(sorry I forgot his proper name) was very kind and good at snuggling up to my feeling. Only thing I was disappointed is the smell of sweat of life jacket during boat riding.

Due to the traffic in KL, we were being picked up half an hour earlier. Luckily we were free that day if not we might be in a hurry. The Monkeys were very enjoyable for us. The food was below average. The fireflies were interesting too but we queued for 45mins and there were lots of mosquitos.
