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

+ Huge number of monkeys, two types, the smaller the more aggressive ones, the bigger black is the relaxed one that you can let to climb you + A guy sells food for the monkeys for 10 RYM. It is quite enough, it is not worth to buy much more. - Your shirt where the monkey sits on you will... More

The small tram ride is pleasant, but the view from the top is not that great really. Lots of monkeys but they are not too aggressive, unlike other places with the more violent type that snatch things etc. The lighthouse is beautiful, but don't think it's opened to public so can only view from a distance. Tips: Monkeys are friendly... More

Plenty of monkeys here all keen to get your food. You can buy a bag of food from a local here and have a great time. The Black monkeys are very gentle and happy to sit on you and eat. Great fun for all

The monkeys here are very tame. The silver monkeys are very friendly but the brown monkeys not. Our driver took us here and told us some tips - stay away from the brown ones and don't touch the ginger babies. The chap wit the food was paid by our driver and then helped us feed thd monkeys. Even got them... More
