We took two tours on the river, one during the day to learn about the mangrove swamps, and the other the firefly tour which was magical- we learned a great deal about fireflies in the short lecture ahead of time, and then were amazed to see the fireflies gather round us when "called". very knowledgeable and passionate owner of the small tour company....

This was a nice way to get to know Malaysia a bit more.....life on the river....peaceful. It gave me more of a feeling of the tropics and the land of inner Malaysia. Kids will love it as well as if you want something to do with nature.

The firefly trip was truly a magical experience for me and my kids. Well worth the money and a highly recommended low impact adventure activity.

This night tour was definitely one of the highlights of our East Coast Holiday.

The journey started with a briefing by Hafiz (his passion for the fireflies & conservation was very evident). After the briefing everyone were assigned boats. We booked much earlier and specifically asked to be in Hafiz's boat.

The journey took us under the bridge where the main road was and we had to lie down as it was high tide....barely scraped through.

Then he started explaining a little more about the fireflies while pointing them out to us. While shining a torchlight and with a flick of his palm, he was somehow able to summon the fireflies to all the boats that were there. We had many fireflies coming right into the boat and landing on our bodies or palms.

This was definitely something that we will not forget and a great memory for the children
