Kelip-kelip Kg Kuantan

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.
