No thrills, but still plenty to see and do
What we say:
Most visitors come to Kuala Selangor to see Bukit Malawati (Malawati Hill), but there is more on offer than a hill with views.
Bukit Malawati boasts great views of the straits of Malacca, but there is also two small museums, resident silver-leaf langurs, and a British-era lighthouse. Malaysians tend to drive up the hill, but a circular pathway is a more pleasant option -- it starts by the Chinese temple in the old town.
Another worthwhile attraction is Kuala Selangor Nature Park (4 ringgit admission), which despite only covering 800 acres, shelters an abundance of flora and fauna. The park, which is run by the Malaysian Nature Society, has a number of well-marked trails.
Kuala Selangor's old town is also worth a stroll, mostly for its pre-war Chinese shophouses.
Buses (Selangor Omnibus number 141) drop off there from KL, taking about two hours. They leave from Medan Pasar, by the clock tower, in Chinatown.
