    The Chamang Waterfall is synonymous with Bentong... Everyone in Bentong has likely been to the waterfall... The waterfall is accessibly by road and is about 10k from the town centre... The waterfall is beautiful by any standard with an area for swimming or just wading in the cool waters of the waterfall...

    There is a big carpark... Toilet and changing/bathing facilities are also available for visitors to the waterfall... There are also facilities selling food and drinks... The peak time when the waterfall area is crowded is from 1pm to 6pm on weekends and public holidays...

Bentong Town Transportation

  • DaHongHua's Profile Photo

    by DaHongHua Written Apr 29, 2013

    So do other towns in Malaysia, Bentong has its bus terminal for all short distance and long distance buses to drop and pick up their passengers. I missed to drive in to the Hentian Raya Bentong to have a close look of where buses go to and where they come from, but I managed to get some photos while fill up at the Shell station. The Esso station is before the Shell station.

    The Hentian Raya Bentong I took the photo while filling up gas.

Bentong Town Local Customs

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At Bentong town center, one can easily notice so many (at least 10 above) Clansmen houses at anywhere. These Clansmen houses were special built houses for peoples of the same family-name to gather and gamble (play mahjong, cards), etc. Clansmen houses serve another purpose which is to have your name and portrait photos display there for long long time for others to admire, etc.

    Correct me if I typed wrongly.

Bentong Town Warnings and Dangers

    by chiabh Written Oct 1, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Every night, there are hundreds of bombers from the sky... These bombers, aka sparrows, will settle down on the electrical cables along the roads of Bentong... they can be found also on the balcony railings of shop houses... They usually arrive at dust, around 6.30pm and will leave for the trees surrounding the town by 10.00pm...

    After the night attack, bird droppings can be seen coveing their cars by unwary drivers who have the misfortune to park their cars under the electrical cables... The side of the roads are also covered by bird droppings... If you are "lucky", you will experience being bombed if you happen to walk under the electrical cables when the birds release their "bombs"... If you hear the birds chirpping all at the same time, run as this will followed by the bombs dropping in waves...

    bombers lined up on the cables.. bombers against the night sky... bombers on the hotel room balcony...

    Bentong is a small town but quite big in area.
