Escape busy Kuala Lumpur for a night and get closer to Malaysia’s nature with a visit to Kuala Selangor. Learn about this city’s interesting history on a tour of a royal burial ground and an ancient fort, and enjoy a seafood dinner in a local fishing village. Your highlight will surely be your evening boat ride through mangrove forests; as night falls, you’ll encounter thousands of twinkling fireflies!

What to Expect
Greet your guide and driver at your hotel and board your air-conditioned coach for the journey to Kuala Selangor, home to one of the biggest firefly colonies in the world.
It will still be light when you arrive, so explore the ancient fort of Kota Melawati, tour the Royal Mausoleum where the old kings of Selangor are buried, and climb to the top of Bukit Melawati. Next, head to Kuala Selangor Nature Park and look for silver-leaf monkeys, tropical birds, and rare butterflies.
As the sun sets, head to a fishing village to feast on the catch of the day before you make your way to Kampung Kuantan Firefly Park. Relax as your boatman rows you through coastal mangroves and marvel as a myriad of fireflies begins to sparkle. When you land, return to your coach, which will drop you back at your hotel.
