Monkeys and Views of Malaka Straits

Came here as part of a half day firefly tour. The monkeys were the first stop, just in a car park. There are people selling food for the monkeys and if you hold it above your head... read more

Have you seen an orange coloured monkey in your life? If not, Bukit Melawati is the place to go. Besides playing and feeding the monkeys, you can observe the glorious past of the light house built by Dutch and also the royal mausoleums. This is a place where you encounter with nature and you can learn a great deal of... More

What a great experience, we visited with 3 kids 5-8Yo and had a ball, the monkeys are very friendly & are quite happy to hop on your shoulder for a free feed. A vendor was selling bags of food for 10 ringgit & there were lots of eager primates ready for a hand out, A couple of the bigger males... More

Went with kids and one got bitten by a monkey! We had to get her the immunoglobulin to protect her against rabies & 4 rabies vaccines to follow. Not a great visit, from now on will keep our distance from monkeys and other wild animals.

We hired a half day tour out of KL specifically to see the monkeys, and weren't disappointed. The first ones, up the hill by the power lines, were the very gentle, quite shy ones. The second stop at the side of the road, half way down the hill had the two different types of monkeys. They are all so tame,... More

I went with my husband who likes monkeys, I do not, but this place is amazing. Just be careful of your belongings. If you go you will enjoy it

A hill with a nice view and a lot of monkeys (like several places in Malaysia). It's not bad if it's part of a tour, but clearly the place itself does not worth the moving.

Came here as part of a half day firefly tour. The monkeys were the first stop, just in a car park. There are people selling food for the monkeys and if you hold it above your head the monkeys will come at you and climb up to the food. There are a lot of monkeys around the ground and in... More

Overall it is a pleasant trip. It just an unplanned trip for us. We dont face any trouble finding this place. The tram ride was RM 5.30 per person. We visit the muzeum, feed the monkeys and enjoy our ice cream. Spend about 2 hours.. Nothing much to do up there other then these 3 activities but we spend quality... More

The place is actually the top hill of the town. The best time to visit the place is right before sunset. Once you there you can park your car at parking available and go up to point where all the monkeys will be. People will be selling foods to feed the monkeys and you can fees them using that. None...

It's a hill with a view and some monkeys. Pleasant but unremarkable. The museum was worth seeing but I wouldn't make a trip to see this place - just call through if you are here for other reasons.
