The Kampung Kuantan Fireflies Park adventure began in the 1970s when a local entrepreneur foresaw the commercial potential of this magical event. The project was later entrusted to the Kuala Selangor District Council, who has continued its development to accommodate the increasing number of tourists.
Here, visitors get to enjoy a ride on a sampan (traditional, non-motorized wooden boat) along the great bends and curves of Selangor River to witness up-close the fireflies’ mesmerizing displays.
Traveling on a sampan enables you to get closer to the action and at the same time, helps reduce air, water and noise pollution, all of which may adversely affect the insects’ natural habitat.
Due to high demand especially during the holiday season, visitors are advised to make bookings in advance to avoid disappointment.
