Did you know? “Firefly light is usually intermittent, and flashes in patterns unique to each species. Insects belonging to some species can even flash their light in unison!”

The Mangrove Discovery Night Tour is as enchanting as it is magical. With only one nightly tour departing at around 7.30pm, it is an eco experience you won’t want to miss when you are in Bintan. Similar to the day tour, the boat ride takes you down Sebung River, except you do not go through as many tributaries. Cruise down the river in the cool night air and experience the serenity and calmness of the mangrove forests. The highlight of the tour is surely the sighting of the fireflies (lightning bugs), their sporadic movements and luminescence calling to mind the twinkling lights on a Christmas tree. On the boat journey back to the jetty, look up and count the many stars in the sky… it is a rare sight for many urban visitors.
