Travelling to Swallow City which is a restaurant a place where they have built a concrete building for swallows to build their nests. Then they are harvested to make Birds Nest Soup. Then the night time to Firefly Park. Go to Firefly Park and hop onto a boat where the guy will take you upstream on the river where the... More

Disappointing experience; a short row around a handful of trees with fireflys. It was beautiful, but after a few minutes, enough.

WOW, what an experience. The fireflies are truly amazing, this place is definitely worth the visit. We went with a private guide (CK) who arranged everything for us. No photos will do this justice, in fact don't even bother trying to take photos. We went on the tour around 730/8pm there was only 10 of us on the boat and... More

WOW! The fireflies are amazing little creatures and well worth a visit. It is just unfortunate that photographs don't do them justice. If you are planning a visit be sure to arrive a little bit early so as to avoid the very long queues.

This is something that you need to experience yourself, as no pictures I've seen (and there's not many since the fireflies' light defy the range for normal cameras) can do justice to the actual view. Do try to schedule your visit when the nights are rather dark, rather than when the moon is shining bright, as the moonlight will lessen... More

My wife and I wanted to go visit and see the fireflies. We traveled long way to see from Kuala Lumpur with 2 little kids. The place was very dark. We could not even see our hands. They took us on an old boat. We barely could see the firefly. In fact, my wife and kids were very afraid. We... More

We review the day tour from Kuala Lumpur with finale being the Firefly Park. It is pleasant to drive past the Templer Park on route to Kuala Selangor and Kota Melawati, the former Dutch Fort and the large population of cute Silverlight Monkeys. The seafood fair in one of the riverfront restaurants was most delightful and filling. By nightfall it... More

We engaged Steven through recommendation from Trip advisor. Firefly trip is something I plan for a long time. I'm a city dweller, but I believe even you live in village or remote place you won't necessary see firefly. We arrived at the Kuantan Firefly Park at 7 pm+ before the counter opened but many visitors already waited there. We paid... More

The boat ride was good and the fireflies were average. They were scattered along the shore of the Kuala Selangor River. We also saw some migratory birds enroute. The cost of the trip at RM18 was reasonable.
