One of the state?s best-kept secrets, the fireflies colonies at Kampung Kuantan and Kampung Bukit Belimbing are a rare natural phenomena. These tiny insects live on berembang (Sonneratia caseolaris) trees that grow in the brackish waters. Enjoy a boat ride along the river to watch this enchanting display. Accommodation is available at Kampung Bukit Belimbing. Prior arrangements can be made through tour operators.
The adventure of the fireflies' area began in the early 1970 by a local businessman that saw the commercial potential of this miracle. Now, the adventure has been entrusted to the Kuala Selangor District Council and has expanded rapidly with the addition of 27 small boats that are provided for the visitors. A sampan could be rented and a boatman would be there to guide tourists through the river, bringing them to areas that have the most fireflies in order for them to have the best sight of this natural beauty.
