For your information, this is the scariest time for most Chinese around the world. The reason behind is the 7th month of the lunar calendar is finally here! From August 11 to September 9, ghosts are said to roam the mortal world when the hell’s gate opens. Besides, many people would avoid the so-called haunting spots, Interestingly, there are a few notorious places in Malaysia known to be haunted. Now, are you brave enough to wander here?
First on the list is the notorious haunting spot at the commonly-used highway. Sightings of Pontianak, a driverless yellow Volkswagen and a lost young boy looking for his mother are among the stories in general.
Actually, this is the exact highway that gets you up to two of Malaysia’s most popular tourist destinations – Genting Highlands and Cameron Highlands. Other than the towering Hantu Tinggi which motorists seem to drive through its endless “arched” legs, you have to deal with unwelcome guests in an empty backseat at this highway too.
Address: Take the E8 ramp to Genting Highlands. Go through the Plaza Toll Gombak towards Kuala Lumpur.
Next, the former Kenny Hills is the current Bukit Tunku. Although renamed in honour of our first prime minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman, a dark reality lies beneath all the luxury bungalows and lavish condominiums.
For your information, an abandoned mansion in the area is a well-known haunting spot. Furthermore, rumours tell of many spooky tales in the house. From a lady who hung herself from the corner of the building to the pontianaks roaming around at night, you will definitely feel the chill as you near the area. Also, there seems to be a phantom motorcyclist who reputedly died while on a race one night.
Address: Bukit Tunku, 50480 Kuala Lumpur, Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Last but not least, this school is known to be the location of many ruthless tortures and deaths. Most happened during the Japanese Occupation in World War II. Most of the time, the students and teachers are familiar to many of the hauntings.
Many reports seeing doppelgangers with marching Japanese soldiers. On the other hand, you might see a black figure on top of the clock tower. Then, there is also a dead body hanging on one of the toilet doors. Still, there’s even a mysterious girl hanging around on her own.
