the emission of light from living organisms

The closest I can get to this wonder of nature is at Kuala Selangor, where you can watch fireflies while on a quiet boat ride in the night. Sadly, I heard there are less and less of them now because of the development that's been going on :(

Here are some famous spots around the world to see this show of lights, made by none other than mother nature herself <3

If you think the US is a little too far to see glowing waves, apparently you can find them in Maldives too!
