At Lukut, you can wander among the hilltop remains of a 19th century fort but, you have to walk and climb up to hill top with the long stair....before we entered in the Lukut Museum which contains many stories of Lukut related to Chinese community. Because Lukut used to be the tin mining town, as it has grown to be big village since the Chinese miners come to work in Lukut. Do you know this Chinese famous Yap Ah Loy who is founder of Kuala Lumpur was working in Lukut before. There are other interesting artifacts displayed in the Lukut Museum.
