Gua Tempurung access from Penang

by zero123

I would like to know how to get to Gua Tempurung from Penang by bus?should I take the bus bound for Gopeng or Ipoh?After visiting the Gua tempurung,are there any transportation to get to Ipoh from there?OR is it advisable to take the tour to Gua Tempurung?

Re: Gua Tempurung access from Penang

I think it's better taking bus direct to Gopeng. That's the nearest point to Gua Tempurung. From Gopeng, probably there will be local buses heaing towards Kampar. u probably can take those buses & ask them to stop u at the Gua Tempurung junction (about 6km South of Gopeng). Thereafter, u need to walk for 3KM!! towards the cave! (I don;t think any buss direct to the cave nouth) Or else take a taxi direct to the cave from Gopeng

The tour wth guide is at the entrance to the cave. can't remeber the prices but it depend whether u wanted to go full lenght, 1/4 lenght or 1/2 lenght of the cave (Probably ~RM12-RM40?)

You are probably better off getting a tour out from Ipoh. Bus to Gopeng is possible from Ipoh then bus from Gopeng but it will involve a lot of time wasting.

Travel Tips for Ipoh

Try Ipoh White!!

by global-drifter

Let it be known. I'm by no means a coffee drinker (rather a coca-cola guzzler).

I'm told I must try the local coffee while in town, a local specialty known throughout Malaysia and indeed the world - Ipoh White Coffee. I decided I couldn't leave town without trying it. All the coffee beans used in the brew are harvested locally, roasted with margarine and served with condensed milk. The result is delicious one, both smooth and creamy with a distinct aftertaste akin to cinema popcorn.

I spoke with Amy, one of the managers at Ipoh Central Cafe (address: Jalan Raja Ekram), who shared with me the reason her cafe made the best coffee in town. "We do not mix beans!" she exclaimed. "In America, or Europe, people mix beans together. We use only local harvest." Amy tells me that she has been working at this cafe for a period of six years, and the establishment itself has been in business for over thirty years. Open from 6am -> 6pm, I went there six times in two days to find it packed to the brim, buzzing with energy, each and every time.

Bukit Kinding Golf Club

by chiabh

The golf course is within the Bukit Kinding Resort, a family recreation resort still being developed... Besides the 9-holes golf course, there are also chalets, boat area, a gym, a recreation swimming pool as well as a spa...

The 9-holes golf course is designed by former Malaysia golf pro M Ramayah... The course is very undulated and hilly and is a tough course for beginners... It is rather short and narrow playing to 2,865yds from the blue tees and favours straight hitters... Anything less than that would result in lost balls in the ravines along the fairways... The two par 3s (particularly hole #6) are most challenging... On the whole, the course is somewhat scenic but has not matured yet with no tree shadings within the tee-box area and fairway... There are no changing rooms as such and golfers will have to use the changing rooms either at the swimming pool or the gym... There is a golfers terrace for some light meal and drinks...

The green fees is rather steep for a 9-holes course at RM35 (weekdays) and RM45 (weekends) for 9 holes play... The buggy is RM25 each... Resorts members will have to pay RM360 as Annula Golf Subscription Fee to play golf or else will have to pay green fees of RM30 (weekdays) and RM40 (weekends) with buggy at RM20...

Pet Store Perils

by global-drifter

I discover a pet store in the central part of town on Jalan Sultan Abdul (jalan translates to road in Malay), that specializes in all things exotic. Now they called it a pet store, but by the look of the cages and cramped condition, perhaps 'exotic animal prison' would be a more fitting title. Poor-luck puppies must sleep on iron bars, as no bedding is provided. Iguanas rest on top of tortoises, forced to dwell in a cage with too many inhabitants and not enough room.

Despite its many faults and grievances, I must admit, this pet store houses a wider variety of animals than I've seen in some zoos. To name a few; sugar gliders, both turtles and tortoises, fighting roosters, chinchillas, tapirs, iguanas, kittens, puppies and even an African Grey Parrot.

I try coaxing a phrase out of this one, but no luck. What inspiration could he find stacked three cages high? I will try again tomorrow, and perhaps bring some snacks for all the animals. I will need to feed them discreetly though, as the shopkeeper has a fierce gaze and watches me like a hawk and not like a parrot.

Eagle Mountain Recreation Park

by yipsufen

Taman Rekreasi Gunung Lang, off Jalan Kuala Kangsar. Exit from North Ipoh.

Many local people still do not aware of this recreational place due to lack of publicity. However, I don't think this place is meant for tourists and there is little to offer. It's more of a place for the local people to hang out. The place was very queit when I went there in the weekend. If you don't have much time to spare in Ipoh, I suggest you to skip this place and focus your time for looking out delicious food in Ipoh.

You will see a calm lake surrounded by limestone hills. At the far end of the lake is a recreational park and children's playground. In order to reach there, one must pay RM3 (adult) / RM1.50 (Senior Citizen) for a boat ride from the jetty.

At the jetty, I can see the lake is teemed with large fish hungry for food but I don't see any eagles flying around here.

At the entrance of Eagle Mountain Recreation Park, you can see a chinese temple built inside the limestone cave. Note that in Ipoh there are many chinese temples built around or inside limestone caves. Eg: Perak Cave and Sam Poh Cave.
