Located on the Klias Peninsula is the Klias Wetland, a Mangrove Forest Reserve.

Get those camera, binoculars on stand-by and keep your eyes peeled for the shy creatures in between the branches.

As dusk settles in with a sunset, enjoy the sights and sounds in a natural setting as you have a sumptuous village style dinner. Show’s not over yet though, there is one more trip through the mangrove swamp, but this time it is graced by the secret rhythm of fireflies and their flickering lights.

However, as much as we hate to disappoint, we are entering a natural habitat where sightings are common, but it is NOT GUARANTEED :)
