Atop the hill that can be seen from the Chinese temple stands a lighthouse. It is one of the few that are still in working order in Malaysia.The road to the top of the hill is a popular spot among locals for their morning walk or an evening jog. The view from the top is worth the walk although it is also possible to drive up. When we were near...more
Grab a swim suit or just jump in with your long track-pants and a t-shirt. This neighbourhood local beach is not really famous for its clear blue water, but it is good enough for the kids to have a splash around.When we were there, the tide was very high, but apparently when it is low tide, you would need to walk out on flat sand about 400 meters...more
After visiting the Mausoleum of the Sultan continue along this road and you will come to a small but beautiful Chinese temple. It is in bright red and stands alone on the side of the road.Across the road from this temple there is a rather famous restaurant that specialises in Beggar's Chicken and Beggar's Fish at reasonable prices. Pre-ordering is...more
The hills and rain forest around the quiet town of Jugra have been maintained as a forest reserve thus giving the area a quiet and stately charm that hints of its days when it was the centre of power for the Selangor sultanate.Drive up the hill on a tree-lined road and past a scattering of well-maintained traditional kampung houses set amidst...more
At this old-style beach there is a large amount of shady, grassy areas suitable for a picnic. If you didn’t bring any food from home you’ll have no difficulty buying snacks and drinks from the stalls nearby. Finally, after all that munching and your tummy's all full, surely there's no better time to have a siesta…more
Another interesting feature of Morib beach is the covered structure that looked like a mini Roman amphitheatre. It had a circular stage area in the middle and the words “JOM KARAOKE” hand-printed in large lettering on a sign against the wall. I guess that weekends may see group karaoke sessions being held here and this would be just the place to...more
To our pleasant surprise the sand here was incredibly white and fine, making it a pleasure to walk on it barefoot. However our joy was shortlived as parts of the beach was marred by plastic bottles and discarded foam boxes, and other litter.Nonetheless, the kids enjoyed picking up shells and playing with the sand.more
There were a few people using home-made fishing poles to fish here. One guys I saw was armed with some fresh squid as bait which he had spread out on a sheet of newspaper. At another spot another lady, her white tudung fluttering in the wind, perched on top of the crumbling retaining wall holding on to her fishing pole while her two sons fought...more
We saw lots of adult and children flying kites here under the shady trees and around the playground. Our friend who had grew up nearby told us that kite-flying had been popular even back when he was a young boy. It appears to me that the sea-breeze was strong enough to make kite flying easy and fun. Fortunately, not strong enough to blow my hat...more
The small town of JUGRA was once the seat of power for the Selangor Sultanate but is now a collection of kampungs, durian & mangosteen orchards, coconut and palm oil estates. It is only a short drive from the town of Banting or the seaside beach of Morib. Istana Bandar was built in 1905 (some sources quote 1915) by Sultan Alauddin Sulaiman Shah,...more
When driving from Banting town, you will come to a T-junction where there is a small mosque called Masjeed Al Mataqeen. The mosque is not unique in itself, but its setting at this junction with the backdrop of the hill and forest reserve and tall coconut trees lined in a row just behind the mosque was most attractive in the evening sun.more
Just up the road from Istana Bandar is the Sultan Alauddin Mosque. Although less than a hundred years old, the mosque with its fascinating display of Moorish architecture and a graceful bronze coloured dome that catches the evening light exudes a peaceful ambience that is attractive in the quiet countryside.My camera ran out of batteries, so I...more
