Stumbled upon this private tour service on Google Map while searching for activities to do in Taiping for a family trip. In contact personally with Mr. Khairul Salleh. Since it was a private tour service, time was flexible - which is a plus for a crowd with kids, trying to get ready on time!
Mr. Khairul Salleh is very friendly yet professional, and very knowledgeable in regards to Kuala Sepetang and its neighbourhood.
We took 2 trip packages: daytime trip around Kuala Sepetang & night time trip for the fireflies.
Daytime Kuala Sepetang trip:
90min boat trip along the river. We were shown around looking at the fishing industry, the mangrove forest & the coal factory. We landed at the 'Shell Beach' where the kids managed to collect various seashells washed ashore by the local cockle & shellfish industries byproducts. Then we stopped at the fish farm looking at tilapias, horseshoe crabs, pufferfish & mudskippers. Info sharing session by Mr. Khairul Salleh was very informative & interactive. I was very happy that my siblings & the kids were very happy getting involved throughout the trip. We ended the trip watching eagles feeding on the river. Magnificent! Oh, almost forgot the mangrove sapling release into the river with hope of everlasting green ecosystem for the future to enjoy & cherish!
Night time firefly trip:
Another memorable trip. One hour session watching fireflies amongst the mangrove trees flashing lights synchronously along the river. We were all in awe by Mr. Khairul Salleh's vast knowledge of the fireflies & the mangrove habitat, and reminded us how crucial & important keeping earth clean & green is to the sustainability of the ecosystem.
All in all, we really enjoyed it & definitely would recommend it! Keep it up, En. Khairul!!!
