Play with silverleaf monkeys at Kuala Selangor
One of the things we love about living in Malaysia is not having to venture far to encounter wildlife, even if you live in the capital. Kuala Selangor, located a half hour’s drive from KL City Centre, is a sanctuary for a unique breed of primates dubbed silverleaf monkeys. These friendly creatures are a vibrant shade of orange when young, but turn silvery-grey upon reaching adulthood. These silverleaf monkeys aren’t as shy as their wilder counterparts – largely because they are used to eating the fruit and veg offered by tourists here. Bukit Melawati Hill, Kuala Selangor, Selangor.
