Firelies in Kuala Selangor 

Fireflies in Kuala Selangor


Looking for something to get out of Kuala Lumpur for the weekend and do some relaxing that won't cost the earth.  Try watching fireflies in Kuala Selangor at the Firefly Park Resort Kampung Bukit Belimbing.  Itís only 45mins from Kuala Lumpur. 

 
Travel along the river at night!

Watching fireflies is an enchanting experience, there is nothing like cruising on a boat along the river in the night to capture the beauty of this natural wonder. The best time to watch is 1-4 hours after sunset.  A nervous excitement fills most people as they step into the boats, as the darkness is quite thick at first.  In a matter of moments your eyes adjust and the fairy like lights of the fireflies line the shore.   The fireflies inhibit the branches of a certain tree, the "berembang" which line the riverbank.

For fishing enthusiasts, there are also power speedboats to ferry to the river mouth from morning till evening, while catching your own lunch or dinner! 

There is an abundance of wildlife to be seen along the riverbank. Some of the local birds such as Burung Bangau, Brunei, Kelasu, can be found. If luck has it different species of monkey, beavers and eagles can be spotted.


Catch your own lunch or dinner

Built on stilts above the clear river water the chalets come with modern amenities of hot water, air conditioning, room service and etc. There is a conference hall purpose built for seminars and functions, which can accommodate for up to 80 persons.  Parents donít worry the childrenís playground, creatively designed; in bright colours have all the necessary safety standards.  If an early morning jog is on the agenda a well-paved jogging track equipped with recreational facilities is easily accessible joggers can take in the beautiful landscape and fresh air without the sounds of traffic. 

Getting There

The roads to Kuala Selangor are not of the PLUS highway kind, they are in good condition for the most part it isnít however dual carriage way.  This means the drive can be intimidating for those traveling on rural roads in Malaysia for the first time.  For this reason itís better to travel in the day light hours. So travel up on the Saturday afternoon check in, later that night enjoy the fireflies the next morning take a Sunday drive home. 

From Kuala Lumpur via Sungai Buloh (Route 54) or through the North-South PLUS Highway, exit at the Sungai Buloh signboard and follow the signs to Kuala Selangor.

If driving does not sound good then are buses direct from the Pudu Raya Bus Station or from the Klang Bus Station close to Central Market (Pasar Seni).
