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.

Make sure you go to the correct bus stop because the number 100 bus takes you directly from kuala lumpur to bukit melawati monkey hill whereas the other buses you'd have to take 2 or 3 buses that stop in multiple places. It is WAY cheaper to take the bus than an uber, the uber was 150+ rm for one... More

Nice place, rich with history and has so much potential to be more than it is now. Should be maintained and have more sign boards of where to go like direction to the next attraxtion. More information about the place. When we were there we were followed by a man all the way down. Pretty scary. Need to have security.

This is a fun place to bring your children. You can park your car at the public carpark and take the tram ride up to Bukit Melawati. Kids will love the idea of hoping into a tram. There are lots of monkeys here. Don't worry; these monkeys are friendly and playful. They will hang around you for food. Some will... More

Great way to spend half an hour before visiting the Fireflies. Best to go by car as the Melawati Hill can be quite a hike. Great Panasonic view of Kuala Selangor and of course time with the monkeys. There are traders selling food for the monkeys so no real preparations are needed.

This place was a blast to see and feed the monkeys. You have to buy a ticket to ride the train up the mountain. There are monkeys everywhere. You can buy food to feed them and it is a blast. They will jump sometimes and steal a whole bag of food and run away. We got some good exercise walking... More

That was just a short stop for us while going to Kuala Selangor but we truly enjoyed every moment there. Unlike the aggressive monkeys in Batu Caves, these were nice and friendly. And also really playful. I could spend ages feeding and watching them and for children they must be a real attraction. It's possible to buy some bananas and... More

As you get to the top you will be greeted by an interesting view all the way to the ocean. You can feed the monkeys but must be aware that there are two types. The most agressive and that might bite you are the smaller ones. The large ones have a black coat and their babies are orange in color.... More
