Loved the paddled boat ride into the swamp, the fire flies glowing in the dark beautiful. Professionally run so we felt safe. It was a wonderful experience.

There are 2 sites to see the fireflies,the (a)manual row boat and (b)motorized boat.Insist to take the more authentic manual row boat site. The row boat will row to a bigger ,closer mangrove site to see the more fireflies.The row boat is much quieter,and will row very close to the fireflies resting tree branches.The site covered by the rowboat had...

Hey, it was an experience. Little boat ride out along the river banks. Need bug spray! Lightening bugs were beautiful. I live in the country. No big deal to me. I'd rather went to bed early. Fairly lengthy drive out there from Kuala Lumpur. Hour drive I think.

When planning my trip to KL, seeing the fireflies was top of my list. Because the park is a couple of hours away from the city center I decided to book a day trip with Steven Sekhar. This turned out to be one of the best decisions I made during my vacation! Steven is an amazing guide—knowledgable, fun, interesting, flexible,... More

For those who has visited this firefly sanctuary years ago, you would quickly spot the changes in terms of the quantity of fireflies. What used to brightly illuminate the trees along the riverbank, has now been reduced to mere twinkles. Am clueless as to what had caused the quantity of fireflies to deteriorate. Still worth a visit if you have... More

We absolutely loved this tour! We were a family of 5 with 2 teens and a child and couldn't fault this. We didn't expect anything 5* because it's not a tourist hotspot like KL. You're paying more for the experience of the fireflies. When we arrived, we could pay extra money to see eagle feeding before sunset which we also... More

We visited the park to do the firefly tour and really enjoyed it. It was easy to find and wasn't very busy, got there around 8pm. The tour itself is a peaceful journey up and down the river to watch the fireflies in the bushes. Pretty reasonable for 16MYR. If you are in K. Selangor it is defunatly worth a... More

I went to Kuala Lumpur to attend friends wedding. My sister and i decided that we wanted to see the firefly since we had never seen one. We decided to book a private day tour with Steven Sekhar (http://stevensekhar.weebly.com or you can google his name). The day tour itself was very nice. Steven was really professional and knowledgeable. The firefly... More

This excursion sounds delightful in the “Sightseeing from Kuala Lumpur” pamphlet. In the quiet hamlet of Kampong Kuantan is one of the largest firefly colonies in the world. Described as an amazing phenomenon, the excursion includes a local seafood dinner. What you do not know and what is not explained is that this excursion involves a four hour bus ride... More
