|Located at Kuala Selangor, 67km southeast of KL.
Kampung Kuantan is famous for its fireflies (Kelip-kelip in Bahasa Malaysia) dwelling along its river bank due to the berembang trees, or its scientific name Sonneratia Caseolaris, with open foliage, which is suitable for the breeding of the phosphorescent beetle.
Here is site of one of the largest firefly colonies in the world, stretching a few kilometres along the Selangor River.
Travel upstream in a small boat or sampan or take a motorized boat at bukit belimbing and in the quiet darkness, you will see thousands of fireflies flickering like Christmas light lining.
The roads to Kuala Selangor are not of the PLUS highway kind, they are in good condition for the most part it isn’t 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 it’s 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).
