Stop At: Altingsburg Lighthouse, Jalan Bukit Melawati, Kuala Selangor 45000 Malaysia

The lighthouse is located at the highest point of Bukit Melawati where visitors can enjoy the panoramic views of the Straits of Malacca. It was built in 1907 and started to serve for navigation purposes since 1910. Due to its strategic location, it was also used to monitor the Strait of Malacca. It was named after a Dutch General and was widely used during the British colonial period.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Bukit Melawati, Kuala Selangor Malaysia

This ancient fort was constructed in the late 18th century during the reign of the second Sultan of Selangor. It later yielded to the Dutch cannons. The site is preserved with the original foundation stones, cannons as well as a fabled execution block. Visitors can enjoy a panoramic view of the coastline from the hill.

The Hill of Melawati is also home to the Silver-Leafed Monkeys and Long-Tailed Macaques. You can purchase peanuts from vendors around the area at Bukit Melawati and feed the monkey. Although the Silver-Leafed Monkey are generally quite gentle, visitors are advised to be cautious with the Long-Tailed Macaques as they can be highly mischievous. Just be careful when feeding them as they are considered wild creatures and can be dangerous when provoked.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Kampung Kuantan Firefly Park, Batang Berjuntal, Kuala Selangor Malaysia

Kuala Selangor is a small coastal village northwest of Kuala Lumpur. The village is renowned for the great attraction alongside the Selangor River that runs through the village. On this river you can spot the famous fireflies (Kelip-Kelip in Bahasa Melayu) during evenings/nights. The fireflies all are found on the mangrove tree species called berembang. It is said that this is one of the biggest firefly colonies in the world. If you want to check out the fireflies yourself.

Fireflies are also known 'Lightning Bugs' and they shine brightly at the night to attract a suitable partner. Apparently, they are able to shine during the day too but humans then cannot see it. They are only seen at night in and along the 'Berembang' trees along the Selangor River. We could not spot any in the palm trees or any other trees for that matter. Often their flashing becomes synchronized, the overall effect is just like the twinkling lights of a Christmas tree. A trip along the river banks at the Selangor River at night is truly magnificent, and definitely a great attraction that should not be missed.

There are a couple of nice restaurants where they mainly serve fresh seafood. Restoran Kuala Selangor is where we enjoyed a very nice local meal at Pasir Penambang (1A, Jalan Bagan Sungei Yu). You can stay overnight in the village of Kuala Selangor or at the chalets at Kuala Selangor Firefly Park.
