Restoran Terapung Bujang Firefly | Johor

When we are in Desaru, we visited one of night attraction which is the firefly tour. The firefly tour start at 8pm. Instead of having our dinner at the hotel, we straight took at 20 mins drive from our hotel to the place. At the same area, there is a restaurant named Terapung Bujang Firefly that served decent Chinese style food. It is a halal restaurant operated by Malay owner. We actually had our dinner there before we took the boat out to see firefly.


Restoran Terapung means Floating Restaurant which exactly reflected where the restaurant is located.

There are plenty of seats available in the restaurant, simple wooden floor above the water. They also provide accommodation at the area where you can stay a night here.

Their menu comes in package of 2,3,4,5,7 and 10 pax. No ala carte provided. Therefore, you will need to order based on number of pax and each comes with a,b,c and d choice with different pricing. Visit here for their full pricing. I choose the 2 pax package that cost RM 65 with:
Jus Oren/ Orange Juice
Nasi Putih/ Rice
Tomyam campur/ TomYam Seafood Soup
Kangkung belacan/ Vegetable
Siakap Tiga Rasa/ Fried Fish with Sweet & Sour Sauce
Sotong goreng tepung/ Deep Fried Calamari
Telur Dadar/ Fried Omelette






I actually change the Tom Yam Soup to Non Spicy Clear Soup. The taste of their food surprisingly quite good. The portion of the dishes are enough to cater for 4 pax, however we have no choice as we have to order the package based on the number of pax we have even though we are small eater. That is the low side of this place.

After our dinner, we bought the ticket RM 20 from the cashier for the firefly tour. Here is the boat where you board on for the firefly tour. The tour took around 30 mins. It actually quite dangerous as you will be given normal plastic chairs to sit on inside the boat. Life jacket are not given to us to wear when departing instead it were kept on the roof.


One of the staff actually managed to capture one firefly and pass to my hand. It looks so small and bright. The place is so dark, we can hardly capture it with our camera without flash.

Although the place doesn't turn out to our expectation, however it is still a nice tour we have in Desaru. It is a great pleasure to be able to see those bright little fireflies near the river banks. I still remember I used to watch those fireflies outside my garden during childhood time, but now it all gone.
