Kuala Selangor - Fireflies performance

Wish to escape from the bustle and hustle of Kuala Lumpur?
The Mangrove forest as well as the bird sanctuary is the natural heritage of Kuala Selangor which is a small rustic city not too far from the city of Kuala Lumpur.

The countryside of Kuala Selangor has a rich historic past that every visitor would like to explore. You can learn much more about mangrove trees by walking around the jungle trails as well as spot the mix of migratory and local bird species.

What will definitely fascinate you is the millions of fireflies. They can be easily found on trees as the location in Kampung Kuantan is easily accessible and reachable by a short traditional boat (sampan) ride. According to local people, the best time to admire the fireflies flashing their 'lights' is during the new moon and especially about 1 to 4 hours after sunset.

The area has loads of local restaurants by the riverfront where you can enjoy your dinner before boating upstream to admire this wonderful spectacular.
