What To Expect

Klias Wetland is a mangrove forest reserve and a destination quickly gaining popularity with tourists. Catch it before it becomes a tourist hotspot and experience the best of Kilas while it's still quiet and pristine. One of the major attractions is, of course, the chance to spot the rare Proboscis Monkeys. The tree-dwelling celebrities typically show up after sunset, so make sure you keep your eyes out for them as you sail along the river. You'll also enjoy a delicious dinner onboard and watch fireflies dance in the night sky.

    The actual river is pretty far from the city, like a 2-hour travel by van. The travel time is not a big thing, really, but I don't think the sights and the experience warrant that much. The river is bland, the monkeys too far to get a decent picture without long ranges lenses, and the fireflies nice but never the same as in the pictures posted. Additionally, the transport surcharge for 1 Borneo pickup is unexpected, considering we also had a Kinabalu Park/Desa Farm tour which took about as much travel time as Klias River Tour but without the transport surcharge.

    We did get to see some monkeys, unfortunately they weren't that common. The forest itself was good as it was nice to smell the fresh forest air. The Firefly watching was not as magical as I imagined. The Dinner Buffet was OK. The guide was great all together, very friendly and approachable.

    Really excited to have booked this one since I've never seen an exotic monkey! Ride's long but they made sure we're entertained. :D Great food, too! Fireflies were a little bit overhyped but it was a nice view though. One of the kids in our group caught one lol!

    I made a lot of amendments due to change of itinerary and all of my requests were acommodated. Very good!
  • Oliver 27 Dec 2017
    Overall great experience, nice tour guide and lots of animal spottings. I wasn‘t so crazy about the food.

    The whole experience was a blast. Transfers to and from the river cruise is very comfortable. Seeing the monkeys and the fireflies was amazing (especially for photographers). Also, the food was sumptuous. This activity is a must for nature-lovers or if you just wish to unwind from the busy city life.

    It took 4 hours to get to and leave the wetland while only 1 hour to watch monkeys and 20 minutes to watch fireflies. There were not so many monkeys or fireflies.
