Kelapa Sawit is a small town in Kulai District, Johor, Malaysia. Kelapa sawit means oil palm in Malay. A mainly Hakka community, many people still communicate using the Hakka dialect. Located neaxt to the Sime Darby palm oil plantation, it faced some problems of air pollution until the estate's oil palm mill was closed down. Buses services like 888 from Causeway Link and City Bus (Formerly known as South Johore Omnibus) 2 from City Bus are the only buses servicing the town and have the same final destination of Air Hitam, a little further north from Johor Bahru.
