Firefly Kuala Selangor

Visited this “Eighth Wonder of the World” Firefly Kuala Selangor on last Mar school holiday, this place is very near to my kampung "Sasaran" (hometown), just 15mins by car. If drive from KL, it will takes about 90mins. There are two locations where visitors can take boat ride, one is at Kampung Kuantan and another one is at Kampung Bukit Belimbing (5min from Pasir Penambang) . We went to Kampung Bukit Belimbing and via Firefly Park Resort entrance.



















-Entrance via Firefly Park Resort. Usually the place is quite packed during the weekends hence try to go during weekdays.The best time to visit the park is after nightfall at approximately 7:30pm to 7:45pm.
-You may choose to stay one night here at the chalet in this resort. But for local girl like me, we will not choose to stay here, just an educational night trip with my children to this place is good enough.
-visitors waiting for the boat ride
**Sorry, I'm not able to show you the firefly scene, as we are not allowed to use camera with flash to take pictures during the cruise as they said this will disturb the habitat of the fireflies. Anyway, I asked their permission to take few photos (w/o flash), unfortunately I can't get anything, the photo just all black.
The scene was awesome, just look like a Christmas tree, but the firefly here is getting lesser, so advise you to visit this place soonest...
p/s After the trip, you may take your dinner at the nearby "Pasir Penambang" and you will find many sea food restaurants there.

Amazing place! I don't even know there is such place! The chalet looks nice! Is it expensive?

Firefly light up like Christmas tree must be an awesome scene.

Colin, my personal opinion, the chalet is just so so (I'm not too sure about rate). You can just plan a 1/2 day trip will do, dont need to stay there. The boat ride is about 30mins only.

Hmmm...good idea! I will definitely check it out if I have time during my next trip home.
