Bukit Melawati

Situated in the coastal town of Kuala Selangor, Bukit Melawati is actually a fort built on top a hill in the late 18th century by the second Sultan of Selangor to fortify his position. All that remains today are pieces of the foundation, some cannons and lots of monkeys – the silver-leaf monkeys, grey in colour, are very gentle and accept food from visitors gratefully. On the other hand, the more common long-tailed macaques are rascals and will not hesitate to steal food when you’re not looking. There is also a lighthouse, a royal mausoleum and a rest house here.

Blue Mosque

The Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah Mosque is one of the most outstanding structures in the country. It has the tallest minarets in the world and a vast blue dome which gives it the name ‘Blue Mosque’. Inside, the walls are decorated with Islamic calligraphy and ethic Malay patterns; truly a sight to behold.

Carey Island

A short drive from Klang will take you to the nearby island of Carey, home to the Orang Asli (aborigines) community known as the Mah Meri. Apart from exhibiting their traditional dances and music, the Mah Meri will showcase their evocative sculptures, created from a kind of swamp hardwood known as Nyireh Batu. The seafood here and on nearby Ketam island is worth trying.

Kuala Selangor Nature Park

Kuala Selangor offers visitors the chance to witness life in a mangrove swamp, complete with mosquitoes and scent of muddy peat. Still, the wildlife here is truly fascinating, ranging from majestic monitor lizards to silver-leaf monkeys and milky storks to sun skinks. There are towers located in and around the park to facilitate bird-watching.

Visitors can also cruise down the Kuala Selangor River to watch fireflies by boat, available through Kampung Kuantan and Kampung Bukit Belimbing, both a short distance away from Kuala Selangor town. The seafood here is scrumptious, and you just may end remembering the food more than anything else from this trip!

Paya Indah Wetlands

The Paya Indah Wetlands is a eco-tourism park located in Sepang that doubles up as a sanctuary for wildlife such as crocodiles, hippos, pelicans, flamingos, swans and cranes. There is also a unique palm garden housing species of palm from all over the world.

Visitors can cycle around the park and canoe on the lake teeming with lotus blossoms and elephant grass. Less passive forms of recreation include a tram or horse-cart ride to tour the park.
