Charcoal Factory Kuala Sepetang

This big, eighty-year-old coal factory is open to the public. When you visit the factory, you'll hear about the method of producing charcoal. Guiding tours are available. But you can visit the factory on your own, too. Workers are going to tell you with excitement about the operation. You will hear a lot more from them about the factory. Take your children to this factory and let them be astounded by the whole operation. Don't forget to wear face masks, as they appear to get smoky occasionally.

Fireflies Kuala Sepetang

Fireflies Kuala Sepetang

It takes a special species of mangrove trees to attract the almost vanishing fireflies. The Avicennia ssp does not only provide a home for these fireflies, but it is also a breeding ground for birds. Take a magical river cruise in Kampung Dew and witness how the fireflies light up like tiny fairy lights.
