The fireflies in Terengganu have created one of the most fascinating natural wonders in Malaysia. Attracted to the Sonneratia caseolaris (Berembang) trees found in abundance in the mangrove swamps around Teregganu, every night hundreds of fireflies light up these mangrove swamps with their fabulous synchronized flashing patterns.
As soon as the sun sets, the darkness is punctuated with the striking display of thousands of fairy like lights of the fireflies lining the shore. Watch this spectacular natural display and see the stars descend on earth!
