Personal highlights

  1. Firefly Sanctuary: small area along the river where fireflies are protected
  2. Firefly Animals: amazing animals, the size of a normal fly, glowing in the dark
  3. Glowing: chemical reaction in the abdomen makes them glow to attract the opposite sex
  4. Selangor River: lovely natural river, serpent through Malaysia into the Indian Ocean
  5. Boat ride: most romantic river cruise, only illuminated by the stars and fireflies
