  • From Batu Caves caused Grab (if someone useful info, price, taxis caused from the Petronas Twin Towers in this program will take you to the caves-18 ringgit). The program showed to Bukit Melawati 100 ringgit, but was able to negotiate with the driver take us there, wait there till sunset, take Park fireflies and back to the hotel for a fixed amount. The Internet has information about how to reach the city, which is the attraction. About impressions-be sure to visit. Such indescribable milota, that there is just no words. Gently with the usual monkeys, they come at sunset and behaving somewhat aggressively. Go on from the parking lot and you'll find a comfortable area with gazebos for feeding monkeys. What to bring: wipes.

  • The wild monkeys are very plentiful. Meek and children adolescents experience. A lot of people are curious, not ferociously around the eoseulreonggeorinda.

  • The view is nice, but don't expect much more. The way ther on the side of the road is a little dangerous, and some parts lack maintenance.  more »

  • For small fee, take a short ride on the tram up the the hill. Your first stop is the Kuala Selangor Museum to view artifacts and learn about the early history of Kuala Selangor. There is quite a lot to read and see in the museum if you are serious about details. Most people though are fascinated with the troop of monkeys that congregate at this museum stop. Be aware that these monkeys are wild and not restrained. If you succumb to the urge to feed them with tidbits that readily available on sale by hawkers in the area, do so with caution. If you must feed the monkeys, keep a safe distance from them and watch your personal belongings, lest you fall victim to a monkey attack. When you're done at the museum, rejoin the tram ride to the top of the hill to view the lighthouse. After viewing the lighthouse, take the tram ride downhill.
  • Needless to say to this most iconic historical place in Selangor, Belong to my royalty background. Serene and peaceful place. In my opinion Selangor Government should do something in order to make this place more attractive to local visitors and tourist- for instant one stop educational centre with high tech approaches and devices.
  • Nice place to visit. Got monkeys and you can feed them. The black species is generally more friendly than the orange ones.
  • Such a great place to be visited... I got alot of knowledge and so much fun with the monkeys around....I wouldn't hesitate to come again
  • The place had their own unique. The of are breathtakingly beautiful. Go there and experience it yourself everyone. It's really a moment over there.
