Visit The Lost World Of Tambun!

by imran8852

The Lost World Of Tambun! There's Several Attractions Like Jungle Wave Bay, Hot Springs, Cliff Racer Tube Raiders, Adventure River (Longest In Asia), Tiger Valley (A Once-Small Cub Is Now A Father Already!), Explora Bay And Many More For You To Enjoy And Have A Wild Time! Pictures Were Taken Around 5+ Which Is Nearing To Closing Time So I Shall Stop Here Before I Spoil The Whole Story. Visit The Lost World Of Tambun To Experience Yourself!!


by fallendevil


The new RM60 million water theme park "Lost World of Tambun" is located in the historic town of Ipoh in the middle of the North-South corridor in Perak. Ideally located between Penang and Kuala Lumpur.
The park will provide a much-anticipated family leisure attraction for anyone in the area.
It's expected to attract 450,000 visitors annually.
The theme park is landscaped with vines, creepers and lush tropical plants to give the illusion of a “Lost World.” The park is the sister theme park of Sunway Lagoon in Petaling Jaya. It is opened since Nov 2004.

The theme park is two hours drive north from Kuala Lumpur and one-hour and a half drive from Penang. It opens from 12:00 noon until 7 p.m. on weekdays. On weekends, school and public holidays, the park opens at 10:00 a.m. It closes on Tuesdays except if the day falls on Malaysian school and public holidays.

"Green and Brown Ground... cool !!"

You can start the adventure at Adventure River and get transported on a long river ride, with giant waves providing the thrills. It's running 600m around the theme park, the river passes through “ruins” with special effects like smoke, light, the sounds of monkeys, elephants and insects, and water sprays. The brave-hearted can check out the Cliff Racer twin speed coaster slides using tubes. The Explora Bay kids’ zone has smaller slides and fountains.
A favourite with both kids and adults in this zone is the “tipping bucket,” which overturns when it is filled to the brim, splashing water onto everyone beneath.
There is also the Jungle Wave Pool with seven wave patterns that can rise up to one metre high.
Beyond the wave pool, the adventure continues with the Tube Raiders which comprises four different tube slides measuring between 113m and 115m that end at the edge of a pool.
The most interesting and thrilling slide is the one wherein the adventurer is engulfed in complete darkness when passing through it.
After a long day of fun and adventure, visitors can relax or rejuvenate themselves by soaking in a bathing pool which is fed with 100% natural spring water from the famous Tambun hot springs nearby.

"Slide to the Pool!!!!"

Besides the special rides such as “Tube Raiders” (sliding down with large tubes), “Cliff Racer” (top speed mine carts) and “Jungle Wave Bay” (the huge wave pool with nine different waves), the park also has a Tiger Valley with three adult tigers on an island resembling their natural habitat – the first of its kind in Malaysia. It's the home to Siberian tigers, Sultan and Jessie, Jessie’s year-old Siberian-Bengal male cubs, Lovie and Rock, female Siberian-Bengal tiger Raima and her three cubs, Azian, Aqila and Putra, which have only recently opened their eyes.
Another special attraction is the pool filled with hot mineral water from the Tambun hot springs, which is renowned locally for its therapeutic properties. Those who prefer less strenuous activities can be set adrift on the Adventure River encircling the theme park, as the ride gives a leisurely view of the whole area.
Behind the breathtaking facade of the Lost World, one gets the feeling of wandering into a lost civilisation, not unlike those featured in the Indiana Jones and Raider of the Lost Arc movies.

5 perfect days in Ipoh

by mannyc

Hello fellow travellers,

I will be in Ipoh for a week and am looking for suggestions on sightseeing, dining, museums and entertainment in general. It's my first trip to Ipoh and I've been told it's a quiet place on the outside but there's a lot to do if you get the inside scoop.

Thanks in advance.


Re: 5 perfect days in Ipoh

If the 1 week in Ipoh is purely for leisure & sigth seeing, I think its quite a long time to spend in Ipoh alone. My advice is make an overnite trip to nearby places of interest, such as Cameron Highlands which is accesible frm Ipoh.

In Ipoh, I guess 1/2 or 1 day city and countryside tour would be sufficient. Maybe you can spend a day at the newly opened Lost World of Tambun in the outskirt of Ipoh - its a water themepark in the vicinity of one of Ipoh's attraction - the Tambun Hotspring. Prolly Ipoh folks can give those inside scoops for your tour there.

Hve a pleasant journey!

Hi, you can also visit Pangkor Island in Perak for 1-2 days.

Dont forget to try Ipoh food, other than horfun, must try the bean sprout chicken and white coffee. Heard that people from kuala lumpur drive up to Ipoh for the coffee every weekend.

enjoy ur trip =)

Hi Ipoh poor you (sorry to all Ipohites but its not a tourist place). About 4 hours there enough I think as some temples to look at and it has a quaint colonial mining town feel about it. And clothes cheap. Nice Chinese food also.

Why so long there? relatives? Head off for the National Parks and Pulua Pangkor or even Penang. Cendol oh yummy.....

Have fun!

What's to see between Cameron Highlands and Penang ?

by galianohere

Hi :

We'll have a rental car and be driving from CH to Penang. We have an extra day and wonder if there is anything we should visit or anywhere worth staying the night ? Traditional villages ? Any suggestions ?

Re: What's to see between Cameron Highlands and Penang ?

by syetan

I'm not altogether sure but the journey will take you through some of the most densely populated areas of malaysia - i am from malaysia but not that particular area...from what i hear why don't you stop by in the town of Ipoh and eat....supposed to be one of the best places to eat in malaysia, and that's saying something!! as for villages, i doubt any particular village on the route will stand out compared to others, perhaps best to keep villages to the more rural heartland of malaysia.

Re: Re: What's to see between Cameron Highlands and Penang ?

by mansionion


A stop over in Ipoh and/or Taping is recommended en route to Penang frm Cameron Highlands - both are nice towns along the route. If you like resort style themepark, check out the Bukit Merah Laketown Resort in Taiping or maybe Lost World of Tambun in Ipoh (Theme Park & hot springs).

I'm not so sure abt traditional village that has something like homestay programe along the route, prolly other VTers can give some in put on this.

Hve a pleasant journey!

I had difficulties in finding tours and car rentals in Ipoh. I would also like to enquire is it very difficult to find tours during Chinese New Year?

I will be visiting ipoh on the 10-02-2005. I had called up a number of budget hotels but it seem that all had been fully booked or they don't take in booking.

Can anyone out there help me by recommending me any tour agents or car rental with driver?


by klfj


Please try to call this Roselyn 012-500 9400.

Maybe she can help.

Good luck.




by fallendevil


i m from Ipoh. i have known some travel agent here.
if you wanna theirs contact number, just keep in touch with me.
there are some interesting places in ipoh too such as tempurung cave, lost world theme park, sam poh tong temple, etc. come here and find it out!


by nichelle28


I had heard from someone that it is very difficult to get car rental with a driver, coz mostly it is done by the taxi and there are only a few car rental companies in Ipoh. Is it true?

I wanted to visit the tambun cave, hot spring, Gunung Lang, lost world, sam poh tong, perak tong, Kellie Castle, Kuala Wong Jungle park, Lata Kinjang fall and so on. Is it worth hiring a car if I want to go to these places?

I heard from someone that Ipoh is actually a very small city by itself but I think it is bigger than Singapore right?

I had difficulties finding a rental car with driver, can you help me? Oh, I would also like to ask you is there still any fire crackers available in Ipoh during Chinese New Year? I will be visiting Ipoh on the 2nd day of New Year.
