It takes several hours to get there. Fortunately our driver was full of information. We stopped at a temple, and to see the wild (or mostly tame) monkeys on the way which broke the journey up nicely. Dinner was included and was very tasty. We were on the last boat out that day. Yes, it is a boat trip on... More

Not as many as shown in the leaflets. Long drive (almost 2 hrs) drive from KL. On the way, you can watch and feed monkeys. Eagle feeding is nice, but the same (or even better) is there in Langkawi. Boat is open and at times it can be a bit cold. So carry proper dress for the kids. There were... More

yes, it is like a christmas tree. yes, it is nice to see the glowing flies. but if you're going just for the fireflies, it may not be worth the hassle, unless you REALLY want to see it. it could've been arranged in a better, more fun way in my opinion. Recommended: DO DRENCH YOURSELF IN MOSQUITO REPELLANT BEFOREHAND

This was a great excursion from KL. We first went to feed the monkeys, then on a boat trip to see eagles and monitor lizards and finally a boat trip to see the fireflies. Our girls aged 8 and 5 loved it and I wou highly recommend our guide Saran Beau, who was absolutely brilliant. His email is saranbeaumonkey@gmail.com and... More

As a continuation for the tour we took which contained a stop at the light house hill where we fed the friendly silver leaf monkeys , then dinner at a sea food restaurant, which was not so good, on the river. When it became dark enough we got on a boat in the river , where the mangroves are to... More

We reached this play from Kuala Selangor, where we spent the night. In non-motorised wooden boats you were brought to the fireflies. It is amazing to see them shine in the darkness. It is a short boat trip from about 20 minutes, but well worth visiting!

Its about an hour and 45 minutes ride from KL with the new highway. You can find the place easily, we just used waze. Ample of parking spaces for visitors. You get your tickets at the counter which will cost RM53 ( the price was RM40 early this year) per boat of 4 people. You can get the whole boat... More

We reached here on the Hari Raya weekend and it was very crowded but the line moved fast and soon we were on a small boat on a dark river and told there were lots of fireflies on the opposite bank, and we could not spot a thing. Then it happened, we got close to the bank and suddenly it... More

It's a 2 hour drive from KL. Don't wear shorts & put on mosquito repellent. We started at 9pm, I was lucky, there was no moon, no wind, no clouds, no rain, just perfect condition to watch the fireflies. The non-motorised flat bottom sampan sits 4 only, an english-speaking guide cum gondolier rows you across the river. Within 5 minutes,... More

Took about 45 minutes from KL. Better arrive earlier as the tour with "sampan" traditional boat without motor starts around 7 ish in evening or sunset. Please wear some long t-shirt and long pants or else you will be attacked by mosquitoes. The sampan can accommodate up to 4 peoples. Check the weather as well.
