Overview
Escape busy Kuala Lumpur for a night and get closer to Malaysia’s nature with a visit to Kuala Selangor. Learn about this city’s interesting history on a tour of a royal burial ground and an ancient fort, and enjoy a seafood dinner in a local fishing village. Your highlight will surely be your evening boat ride through mangrove forests; as night falls, you’ll encounter thousands of twinkling fireflies!
Highlights
  • Cruise through the mangroves by night amid thousands of twinkling fireflies
  • See an ancient fort, a royal burial ground, and a nature park with monkeys
  • Feast on fresh seafood, cooked local style, at a nearby fishing village
  • Relax with door-to-door round-trip transport from your hotel
What to Expect
Greet your guide and driver at your hotel and board your air-conditioned coach for the journey to Kuala Selangor, home to one of the biggest firefly colonies in the world. It will still be light when you arrive, so explore the ancient fort of Kota Melawati, tour the Royal Mausoleum where the old kings of Selangor are buried, and climb to the top of Bukit Melawati. Next, head to Kuala Selangor Nature Park and look for silver-leaf monkeys, tropical birds, and rare butterflies. As the sun sets, head to a fishing village to feast on the catch of the day before you make your way to Kampung Kuantan Firefly Park. Relax as your boatman rows you through coastal mangroves and marvel as a myriad of fireflies begins to sparkle. When you land, return to your coach, which will drop you back at your hotel.

Full day private tour was very good. Driver and guide were at our hotel at least 1/2 hour before the pick up time. Bus was very comfortable for our group of 9 and the guide from Happy Travels was friendly, humorous and very knowledgeable about Malaysia, its people and culture.

Dear Jonh, Thank you very much for your feedback which we appreciate greatly. Upon receiving your booking, as per the agreed procedure with our partner agent, we have emailed to your good self that there is surcharge to pick you you up from the Hotel, as it is located out of the City Centre. We also gave an alternative that you could be picked up at MATIC where there will no surcharge. Since it was a Saturday and our office is open till 1 pm, we asked that you revert back to us your choice by 1 pm, and if we do not hear from you we presume you would prefer to be picked up at MATIC. Unfortunately, we received your message that you wished to be picked up at MATIC at 4 pm, our office was closed and unfortunately our staff had arranged your pick up to be from your Hotel. We do apologize that Intan did not reply to your messages, she was on leave and she thought that Fadila who was her replacement that day, has settled the matter. We do sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused and please note, we have done a full refund to our partner agent, you should be received the refund from them. Please be assured that this indeed is a rare occurrence.. As a testament to our strive for perfection, we have taken steps to improve on the gaps that have been identified. We are committed to provide our customer with the highest level of service and we welcome any comments that will help us improve If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to discuss it with our customer service team at customerservice@asianoverland.com.my. Thank you and have a nice day ahead. With warm regards Zid Chaher | CUSTOMER SERVICES
