Firefly Park Resort

Firefly Park Resort Bukit Belimbing in Kuala Selangor, Malaysia. Is the only place in this region where you can witness the sight of millions of fireflies flashing in synchrony, often referred to as the "Eighth Wonder of the World". It is one of the must visit place of interest (POI) in Malaysia. You will be taken on a boat ride along the Selangor River where the fireflies inhibit around the branches of the “Berembang” trees along the riverbank. Here, up to thousands of fireflies may group together on a tree, beginning their display about one hour after sunset. A really bright display lasts for about two to three hours, continuing at lower levels until dawn.
We are provided tourists with the convenience of those comfortable abodes by erecting chalets along the riverbank that take great pains as to not upset the ecological balance of this nature’s park. It is made of wood, with tastefully designed on stilt above the clear riverine water, which is 2 kilometers away from the surface of the water, as if yourself return to the nature itself.

Our fleet of modern fiberglass boats are electrically powered, ensuring absolutely no noise and air pollution. The toneless, powerful boat, which delivered the passenger to the heart of the river, roared in the flimsy voice, for fear that she would wake up the deeply asleep night and those fireflies were enjoying a sightseeing trip in the silence.
Watching fireflies has become a major attraction for the district of Kuala Selangor where draws large number of tourists from all over the world. In fact, it has been listed as a “must-see” agenda in numerous international tour guides. Every night there is a stream of electric driven motor boat that ferry sight-seeing tourists up along the Selangor River silently to listen to the spectacular symphonic harmony of these fireflies while viewing their luminous flashes of light that is truly a magnificent sight to the eyes of the beholder.
