Wonders that are difficult to see elsewhere in the world

Join me to witness one of nature's wonders, The Fireflies. Big colonies of fireflies living on special trees called 'Berembang' by the Selangor River that emits blinking lights. It's like a big Christmas tree.

But before that, let me take you to Bukit Malawati, Historical site which was once used as the State of Selangor administration center, and has been invaded by the Dutch who named it 'Port Altingsburg' but not for long. Experience feeding a friendly and tame monkey, the 'Silver Leaf ' and you can feed them and pet them, and if you are lucky, you can see the golden color of the newborn baby.

Feast yourself with Chinese Seafood Cuisine as your dinner by the riverside and enjoy the sunset, but before that, we go for a drive through a Malay traditional village.
