Prepare to be amased

We were told it is not going to be a good visibility as it was full moon. But what an experience that has been! It is like there are Christmas trees all over the place.

Nature at it's best.

Well organized tour. Give the buffet food a miss if you can. The firefly tour was really good. So gentle and peaceful drifting through the mangroves seeing the fireflies light up the trees. Pretty special if you are into nature.

Amazing View

It's nice trip to sightseeing the fireflys in the Mangrove forest. I went alone, but I highly advise couples to go for this trip as it quite romantic.

Brilliant experience

Really something special - cameras are more or less pointless, nothing will capture the magic of seeing trees lit up with fireflies at night with only the sounds of nature and your guide’s oar gliding through the water. At one point, we could see glowing plankton in the water, fireflies in the trees and the stars in the sky, a mental image I’ll have forever. Beautiful and absolutely worth your time and money!

I loved it
Jan 2020
The firefly tour was well organized including hotel pick up and drop off. Nice and funny guide. The boat tour, especially on the river was so peaceful and since I never saw fireflies before, I actually enjoyed it. The dinner was nothing special and the music during dinner was not very good.

Just Okey.
Jan 2020
It was raining the whole afternoon before we proceeded to that place. Water in the river was high and had strong current. Trash accumulated beside the dock, the boatmen had to clean. We had dinner first before doing the tour since it had to be dark to do it. Lunch was a simple one, but satisfying. We had 2 navigators in the boat. Upon cruising the river, so dark you can't see anything expect the million stars in the sky, sounds of creatures around. We saw fireflies in a cluster around trees but not all over. It was not exciting I thought it would be.

Magical experience

The boat ride down the river was a special experience with trees lining the water covered in sparkling fireflies. My husband & I commented that they looked like bud lights, so the tour guide caught one from the tree and placed in our hands for us to release.

Hurting the fireflies - un ethical
Jan 2020 • Couples
We were disappointed with this tour due to the way the boat men interacted with the fire flies. After watching a video about their life cycle and finding out they only live for two months; to then watch the men throw copious amounts of water on the fireflies to try and get them to fly for the tourists was horrific. I understand they are trying to make tourists happy however this isn’t ethical. Fireflies that got the water on their wings fell from the trees into the water and drowned. It was very upsetting to see.

Disappointing

Definitely not worth the value. The visit itself is very short, and we don't see that many fireflies.

Maybe if you’re lucky

We have visited this place but the guide said that the “fireflies are sleeping” and we saw just a small group of this creatures that are sitting on a special kind of three “lipstick m....” +1 to my boating under moonlight!
