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.

    nice. But only few fireflies during that time. We enjoyed the food and the guide provided us interesting information.
  • Julius Cezar Raphael 12 Nov 2018
    I recommend it. Experience the nature of Borneo by river cruise. Highlights: Watching the proboscis monkey and firefly. Lowlights: Food Also, eventhough we're only three on shuttle, the activity still proceeds.

    It was nice especially the buffet before and after the tour
  • Sheena 8 Nov 2018
    The rain was pouring hard and we still continued the cruise to see the monkeys. You should always check the weather forecast before proceeding because I think they will not cancel the trip unless there is a storm signal (bring your raincoat- it cost 5 RM in the area). The food buffet was delicious including the coffee. We have seen the monkeys but they are far, you should bring telescopes. The rain stopped for a while and we have seen the fireflies. Good experience.

    A magical experience as we get to see everything that was written and more, a sky full of stars as it was after rain. Incredible. On top of that, Richard is a great tour guide which will keep you entertained throughout the trip. :)
  • Joanna Christina 3 Nov 2018
    It was very peaceful especially when there were very few tourists.
  • Dany Neil 23 Oct 2018
    What a great experience to see the endemic proboscis monkeys of Borneo in just a two hour drive from Kota Kinabalu. The firefly display was also magical. Kudos to our very knowledgable guide who made our visit even more amazing.
  • Dale John 12 Oct 2018
    It was told by the guide how lucky we are to have the weather favor us, first activity was sunny allowing monkeys to show and quite foggy/drizzly on the afternoon for the fireflies to appear. And yes the boat ride was fun and the food was amazing too. Perfect combination for a well organized activity. Great!

    River cruise location is way too far, not worth the long drive. Buffet dinner was ok.
