Bukit Melawati is located in the coastal town of Kuala Selangor. It’s a rich historical site, only 30-minute drive from Kuala Lumpur. Sultan of Selangor has a fortress on Melawati Hill to protect the state from intruders at the end of the 17th century.

Bukit Melawati @ Kuala Selangor

28 May 2010

My trip to Bukit Melawati was just coincidence with Sekinchan trip. Since we have crossed by this place, we decided to stop by for sight-seeing as none of us except me have been here before.

That time, it was under hot afternoon. Everyone there was taking the tram at cost of RM3 for each in one way.

Tram stopped at cannon area where monkey were scattered around the place looking for food. I bet they’re only able to feed enough during weekend or holiday, or else starving themselves with less peak day. They’re not aggressive like what we heard about monkey behavior. It’s safe for all included children, but have to take precaution.
