List of Activities 

Kuala Selangor fireflies tour is the second most popular day trip from Kuala Lumpur after Batu Caves. As a token of appreciation to our customers, we include visiting Batu Caves in the watching fireflies itinerary without any extra charges.

Visiting Batu Caves

We start our Kuala Selangor fireflies tour by visiting Batu Caves. Situated about 13 km from the city center, Batu Caves is the biggest Hindu temple in Malaysia. Batu Caves is the most popular attraction in Kuala Lumpur, and tourists should not miss it when visiting Kuala Lumpur. We spend about one hour, which should be sufficient for tourists to climb and roam in the caves.

Visiting Batu Caves require all females to cover their legs until below the knee. Tourists can wear a towel, pario skirt or sarong to protect their legs.

Kuala Selangor Bukit Malawati

Situated in Kuala Selangor’s main town, Bukit Malawati has an exciting history related to Selangor state we will share during the tour. Besides the history, Bukit Malawati is also where tourists can meet Silver Leaf Monkey.
On the top of Bukit Malawati, tourists can see the world’s longest and busiest strait, the Strait of Melaka. The Strait of Melaka, covering about 930km, is one of the most important shipping routes in the world.

Watching Fireflies

The highlight of the Kuala Selangor fireflies tour is watching fireflies in their natural habitat. In Kuala Selangor, we have three places to see the fireflies. Besides Kampung Kuantan Fireflies Park, another two places known as Bukit Belimbing and Pasir Penambang.
We prefer to bring our customers to Kampung Kuantan Fireflies Park, managed by Kuala Selangor Municipal Council. We choose Kampung Kuantan because it has been practicing the authentic way of watching fireflies using a manual rowing boat since 1985. Moreover, the boat ride will paddle by the well-trained local village.
We have to take a boat to watch fireflies because the boat will bring tourists closer to fireflies’ natural habitat away from light pollution. Don’t forget to bring Mosquito repellent to prevent Mosquito bites.

    Just returned from my very nice Firefly tour with Matthew => Hotel pick-up, Batu Caves, temples, monkey feeding, delicous seafood dinner as well as the firefly tour => all worked well! Highlights were the monkeys in hand distance and of course the firefly boat trip (a very nice experience). Matthew did everything to provide me a perfect afternoon!

    Mr Anuar was very responsive, texted him several time before we arrived in KL and he replied quickly. We had Mr Sundram for both Malacca and Fireflies tours. We had a private tour, just like our Malacca one. He made sure we are not hungry/thirsty, stopped for toilet breaks along the highway. We went up the Batu Caves, then fed the monkeys at fort Melawati, delicious seafood dinner by the river and gorgeous sunset! in the dark, we rode a row boat to marvel at the fireflies by the mangroves! Very memorable and worth it! Thanks Anuar and Mr Sundram!

    The thought that Anuar puts into his tours shows his commitment to ensuring his guests have the best possible experience. Anuar is a great communicator and kept in touch with us about our excursion and met us promptly at the arranged pick up point. He handled everything - entry tickets, bottled chilled water, insect repellent, umbrellas and meal changes (for smallest child who can be fussy). He advised us that we should leave a little earlier to avoid public holiday crowds, and this worked out perfectly. Anuar shared great information with us about each excursion site. Eldest daughter loved the darling little Silver Back Monkeys and there was plenty of time for even our smallest child to get over her nerves and feed sliced sweet potato to one. The quiet glide along a perfectly tranquil river to watch the fireflies was a highlight and, again, Anuar arranged it so we would be well ahead of the public holiday crowd. A memorable afternoon of family fun. Thanks so much, Anuar.

    Anuar picked us up from our hotel perfectly on time, took us first to the Batu Caves, then onto Kuala Selangor to see the Silver Leaf Monkeys.
    I am a massive animal lover, and was so excited to be finally getting to meet these cool little friends! They were amazing! such friendly monkeys! Anuar bought us food to feed them, and the monkeys climbed all over us, sat on my sholder, then when we sat down, the sat on my lap and we just "Chilled" together. These monkeys are not like the more comon monkeys you get all over Asia, these are specific to paticular areas.

    After the monkeys, we then went on to a seafood diner at a local resturant. wonderful food, overlooking the river where we watched the beautiful sunset!

    Finally we visited the Fireflys. Anuar gave us the choice of either the speed boat or to be paddled in a small wooden boat. We decided we wanted to be paddled. never seeing Firflys before, we were amazed! definatly something everyone needs to see!

    If you are planning a trip to KL, Anuar's tours are the best. they are extreamly good value for money, good quality tours. As Anuar's tours are 1 on 1, you get a very personalized tour and get everything from it you are wanting to see!

    Thankyou Again Anuar!!!

    Melanie :)

    Our tour was private, very professional & it was great to see the early history of Malaysia. We had such a great time we asked Anuar to book us in with another tour a couple of days later. Unfortunately Anuar was unavailable, but arranged for Balan to guide us on our next tour to the Batu Caves, Silver Leaf Monkey's & the Firefly's (This whole tour is a must!!) This was without a doubt our favorite day in our two weeks in Malaysia & our guide Balan was exceptional.
    We highly recommend Anuar and can't wait to get back to see more of Malaysia with these great guys. A
    "Anuar & Balan thank you again for the awesome time you showed Audrey & I while we were in KL"

    See you again soon,

    Nathan & Audrey

    Our family had the most wonderful afternoon and evening with Anuar. We climbed Batu Caves, fed gorgeous Silver Leaf monkeys and gazed in awe at the fireflies. It was a memorable trip with a charming and accommodating host.
    Thanks Anuar!
