Since my friends and I did not see many silver leaf monkeys in Kuala Selangor Nature Park and the monkeys were too afraid of us, we came to Bukit Melawati. The monkeys here only wanted food, like apple, peanuts, and bananas. They gathered around, jumped on, and followed us for food. We also brought our bags and phones with us... More

If you are looking for more relaxing weekends out of the city, Melawati Hill has something different and interesting to offers for you. The first in Malaysia where you can feed the monkeys in close range. There are two types of monkeys, silver-leafed and long tailed macaque’s families. The Melawati hill is not just history place that was build in... More

You'll be asked if you want to buy food for the monkeys and you probably will... But the minute the monkeys know you have something, they will stop at nothing to get it off you! It's cute if you aren't freaked out about 2-3 primates hanging off your arms /head/legs to get their goodies but for my four year old... More

Kids would enjoy the experience feeding the monkeys. There are two types of monkeys, Silver leaf monkey (black) and Marcaque (brown). Silver leaf monkey is very gently but watch out for the Marcaques, they can be a little notorious. Do not let your small toddler hold any food. There is a small museum you can visit at the top. There... More

The trem up costs RM5 per adult inclusive of a visit to so-called aquarium air tawar (before 5pm). Nothing much. Only monkeys and nice scenery where you can see the straits and view from above. There is a museum up there, free admission. There is no shades besides the museum. When it rains, all the best. The aquarium was horrible.... More

Aahh they smell! A couple of vendors there sell food for the monkeys. Cheap. Buy it. Monkey's smelled like wet dogs. One monkey scampered up to my shoulder. Okay, but one was enough. Been there; done that. Let's move on. Loved the lighthouse and the views of the water and the cannons. Glad I went.

The best way to appreciate Bukit Melawati is to walk up as the ascend is not too steep and you can enjoy the scenery as you move along. Once you reach the top, you will indefinitely be greeted by monkeys. If you have food with you, be careful as the monkeys may just snatch it away from you. We witnessed... More

We went there with my sister. The hill itself was just so so but the monkeys were very friendly. You can purchase monkey food and they will gather around you. Overall, quite a nice experience

That's the most attractive attraction you may have ever seen. I should have call it monkey's village as they are everywhere. When you go yo that place monkeys follow you, all they need is to take something for eat from you. There are 2 different types of monkeys there - smart and aggressive. The first one can jump on you,... More
