Selangor’s Fireflies, Kampung and Seafood

Selangor’s Fireflies,
Kampung and Seafood

Where romance meets Malaysia’s local side. Selangor’s reputation as the sight of thousands
of lights, created by a permanent colony of fireflies is well-known around the country.
Adding a seafood dinner to the day and voila, an outstanding outing emerges!

WHY THIS TOUR?

Malaysia’s capital offers sufficient possibilities to get the smell, taste and feel of what the country depicts as the frontrunner to represent modern Malaysia. Visitors may see only a glimpse of what makes Malaysia such a multi-versed tourism destination, yet when exploration takes you farther away often gives visitors a feeling of the traditional side of this country.

Our late afternoon and evening exploration of the Selangor province with its laid-back capital is merely one example of what one can expect when venturing away from the hustle and bustle of Kuala Lumpur.

TRAIL ITINERARY

Selangor’s Fireflies, Kampung and Seafood

16:00 - 22:00

Your guide/driver will be waiting for you at your hotel lobby at around 4 pm for a leisurely drive out of the city and into the direction of the State of Selangor. This easy drive takes approximately 1 hour before we reach the main town of Kuala Selangor. A diverse town where authentic rural life still plays an important role, and where income from fishing and farming comprises mainly to the region’s industry. Besides this, large parts of the state and surrounding Kuala Selangor are now used for high-in-demand palm oil and rubber cultivation.

We head up to Bukit Melawati, once the home base for two forts and now the perfect spot to get a panoramic view of the surrounding landscape and see ships coming, going and passing by the town through the Strait of Melaka. Customers may get the chance to see the shy yet friendly sliver leaf monkeys roaming around freely.

When you know that fish and seafood are caught in abundance, what better way to try out these delicacies yourself? Dinner will be served at one of the established seafood restaurants in Kuala Selangor before we head upstream to watch (hopefully) the thousands of fireflies twinkling in the dark along with the thick mangrove trees. The boat will sail up and down from Kuantan, where we venture partially by boat over the Selangor River’s estuary, is the best place to start this mesmerizing trip of flickering lights in the darkness.

We return to the pier, where your vehicle awaits to bring you back in comfort back to Kuala Lumpur. Do expect to reach your hotel at around 10 pm with new experiences pocketed!
