Top 7 Family Activities in Kuala Selangor

If you want to visit Kuala Selangor with your family but have no idea where to begin, don’t worry, here is a list of Top 7 Family Activities in Kuala Selangor that I compiled based on my own trip  just to give you some  ideas of where to go and what to do.

1. Take the train ride up to Bukit Malawati — The train will take you and your family around Bukit Malawati and it will stop at the summit where you can hop off and do other activities. You can later hop on other train to continue the ride down the hill and later to Freshwater Park and Kuala Selangor Nature Park and a bit of the town. Attractions along the ride include Royal Tomb, Poisonous Well, 100 Steps and Seven Wells. The fee for a complete ride is RM3 for an adult and RM1 for a kid.

2. Play and take pictures with Silver Leaf monkeys — Hop off at Bukit Malawati summit and get to see tens of Silver Leaf monkeys. These monkeys were quite playful and some even sit still to allow you to take photos with them. If you are into animal photography, this is the time to get close to them and take loads of pictures. You can buy a bundle of food for RM2 from a peddler to feed the monkey but please take note that it is not encouraged to do so as it will disrupt their natural feeding habits.

3. Visit the Historical Museum of Kuala Selangor District  — This is a place where you and your children can learn how Kuala Selangor got its name, who were the Sultans, how did the hill became a battlefield, and many more. You can use the new-found knowledge to play History Q&A fun games with your children in the car. Admission is free and the museum opens from Tuesday to Sunday from 9.30am to 5.30pm.

4. Take a walk at Kuala Selangor Nature Park (KSNP)  —  This is a great place to instil love for nature and environment into children. KSNP is managed by the Malaysian Nature Society(MNS) for the Selangor State government. This park comprises 324 hectares with four rich habitats, namely: secondary forest, mangroves, brackish water lake and coastal mudflats. KSNP operates daily (including Saturday and Sunday) from 8:30am to 6:00pm. Admission Fee is RM4 per adult and RM1 for student and children below 16. Malaysian Nature Society member pay RM2.

5. Kuala Selangor Freshwater Fish Park   —  Located just next to Kuala Selangor Nature Park, this fish park houses about 1500 fishes from 60 species, mostly from rivers and peat swamps in Selangor. The history of freshwater fish in Kuala Selangor and type of traps used by fishermen can be seen in the Freshwater Fish Gallery. Entry into the park is RM2 per adult and it opens from 9.30am to 4.30pm daily.

6. Light up your night at Kg. Kuantan Fileflies Sanctuary  —  Here is a chance for you to have that enchanting hours when creatures of the forest wakes from their afternoon slumbers and venture out to play at dusk. The park opens from 7.30pm until 10.30pm and a fee for a boat is RM40 (for 4 persons).


7. Have your dinner at Medan Ikan Bakar Pantai Jeram  —  Take your family to this seafood restaurant at Pantai Jeram located  about 18km south of Kuala Selangor town, along the coastal road to Klang. The food here was great and we spent about RM100 for Chili Crab, Grilled Fish, Grilled Squid, Mixed Vegetables, Tomyam Soup, rice and drinks.



Kuala Selangor is just about an hour drive from Kuala Lumpur and to get to Kuala Selangor, you can opt for The KL-Kuala Selangor Expressway (LATAR Expressway) linking Kuala Lumpur at Templer’s Park in the district of Gombak with the township of Ijok in the district of Kuala Selangor. This expressway is the alternative link road to the Federal Road 54 (Jalan Sungai Buloh – Kuala Selangor).

    1)Anak monyet tersebut memang warna perang semasa kecil. Pelik masa mula-mula tengok. Ingatkan ada campuran baka ke :)

    2)Medan Ikan Bakar Pantai Jeram memang terbaik. Beberapa tahun lepas saya pernah makan di sana. Baru-baru ini tengok, wahhh makin besar, cantik tempatnya dan banyak sangat menu menarik. Lokasinya pula tepi pantai. Memang berpusu-pusu orang ke sana.

    • Kan, Syuq? Totally opposite. Masa baby golden color, dah besar silver color.
