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

This is worth for the nice view from the peak but, mostly, to be in contact with the silver monkeys. They are so friendly, so attentive! It was a marvelous experience to feed and interact with them. If you can, bring your fruit from the market.

Some people might say that two hours to go and two more on the way back from Selangor fort is to much for what one may find there. I was there and I say if you have enought time, a morning spent on the Selangor hill is time well spent. I traveled by bus from HSBS building near the Central... More

We went there on weekends and there's a trams that available to run up to the hills from the foothill for a fee of RM5.00 per adult and RM3.00 per child. On top of hill stands a huge and well maintained light house that was built in the year 1907. Visitors are not allowed to go into this light house... More

may be the previous tripadvisor reviews had hyped the expectations, but personally there was nothing much in the place. there were lot of monkeys around the entire place especially concentrated near the light house. I had a few photographic opportunities as i was around the sunset time. Personally i feel it is not a very attractive tourist destination.

I have ridden my bike up here half a dozen times and have yet to be harassed by monkeys. The view is nice (not spectacular), the site historical, and a great place to stop for a break. Not sure about having to walk or take a tram up the hill ... we just rode our motorbikes up to the lighthouse.

Surprisingly nice place to visit.! If you can handle monkeys climbing up onto your shoulder .... surrounded by animals wanting food... BUT NOT menacingly like their other little brown rat bag attacking cousins... then these Silver leafed monkeys are for you...
