MALAWATI FORT & FIREFLIES VILLAGE
INFO @ Melawati Fort & Fireflies Village
Melawati Hill is located in the coastal town of Kuala Selangor, a 30-minute drive from Kuala Lumpur. In the late 18th Century, the second Sultan of Selangor had a fortress constructed on Melawati Hill to protect the state from intruders.
The hill provided a vantage point to monitor ships in the Straits of Malacca. Even with a strategic hold, the Melawati Fort yielded to the Dutch cannons.
Kampung Kuantan Fireflies
The Kampung Kuantan fireflies are a natural phenomenon. Even nature on a small-scale comes up with some big surprises.
Nothing evokes wild splendor like watching the silent and spectacular light show of these illuminating beetles.
Take just one night out on the Selangor River and you'll be hooked. Riverbanks buffered by berembang trees fill up with tiny insects that turn their abdominal bulbs on and off every three seconds like a kid playing with a light switch.
It may seem strange to sit in a sampan and ogle at this firefly mating ritual, but it's so serene and pleasant.
The fireflies (kelip-kelip) of Kampung Kuantan are famous, if not rare. A good site to see these unique creatures in action, it's also one of the best examples of ecotourism in Malaysia.
