This Sekinchan Rice Field and Kuala Selangor Fireflies Tour begins at 10am from Kuala Lumpur. Our voyage begins with an hour and a half drive through the Kuala Lumpur wide open, passing a Palm Oil manor and a wilderness. In transit we stop off at a Chinese sanctuary and a celebrated wishing tree. We then touch base at the lovely Redang Beach before making a beeline for Sekinchan for a crisp and divine fish lunch. Sekinchan is a notable angling town and one of the real rice supplying districts in Malaysia. After lunch we take you to the Sekinchan rice fields, contingent upon the season of year the shades of the fields can differ from whether they are in the planting or gathering season. We then visit the Rice Museum to take in more about the historical backdrop of this significant rice creating region. On out of Sekinchan we visit the delightful Nan Tian Temple and with the sun beginning to set we keep on melawati Hill, a previous fortification with an antique gun confronting the bustling Straits of Malacca. While here it is likely you will experience the nearby occupant, the Silver Leaf Monkey. We then continue towards Kuala Selangor for supper and your vessel ride through the mangroves. Our fish supper is served on the riverside and in the event that you are sufficiently fortunate to see it the dusk perspective is astonishing. When supper has completed and night is upon us we join our pontoon to see the fireflies. You will be astonished by these hypnotizing fireflies and the range is known not one of the biggest settlements on the planet. We then make a beeline for your lodging in Kuala Lumpur.

We start off the tour with a visit into the famous paddy fields of sekinchan. Sekinchan, which literally means “village suitable for plantation” in Chinese, lives up to its name as the town is the rice bowl of Selangor. Large plots of land are cultivated to produce the staple rice supply of Malaysians. This area is well-known for its high yield of rice and mechanised farming methods.
Next off, we head to Bagan is the main fishing village in Sekinchan, this fishing village is located along the river and small seaport, south-west of the town. The economy of Bagan is dominated by fishing industry. This fishing village will become very quiet after all the fishing boat go to the ocean for their catching at the morning. The situation of this fishing village will change to very busy during the time of fishing boat back to seaport, you will the fisherman busy with their work to unloading their catching and the workers in jetty are busy with categorize according types and sizes. That why we describe this fishing village as Calm and Busy Fishing Village.
Take a moment and step back to soak in the scenic views and picturesque sight of the sunset on top of Melawati Hill before we head for the main course of the Tour. Fireflies!
“Kelip-Kelip” as they call it in Malay, are cute little bugs that flicker in the night’s sky. Kelip itself means twinkle and “kelip” a second time means Fireflies. Be astounded by the flickering lights they on boats that will take you to their habitat and try not to catch them, they don’t like to be taken away from their families! Bring Mosquito repellent for protection, but don’t spray too much as you might scare away the fireflies.
There are two places to catch a glimpse of our cute friends, first is at Firefly Park at Kampung Kuantan and second is at the Firefly Resort in Kampung Bukit Belimbing.
