With over ten exciting rides like the Kraren’s Revenge and the Tidal Wave, fill up your day with endless fun under the sun. Just remember to apply lots of sun lotion!


Even after the sun has set, that doesn’t mean you have to retreat to your hotel room. In fact, for this attraction, it’s only available at night. The location? At a seafood restaurant called Restoran Terapung Seafood Bujang.

You’ll need to get on a boat and into a mangrove swamp to witness the fireflies in their natural environment. It’s a perfect activity just to chill and relax after a meal at the restaurant.
