I would say that Bkt Tinggi will be truly enjoyed and appreciated by kids...Kids know how to have a good time, regardless of where they are...And the clowns here ( I mean real CLOWNS!) do a good job and entertain the kids... : )
I liked the Japanese Garden as it was realllllyyy pretty...
Big beautiful and colourful flowers fill the garden, landscaped with a simple Koi Pond at the entrance...How Japanese is that? : )
A must see for those with a penchant for gardening & flowers...
Another distinct differentiation between seas at Pahang coast line (east coast) as compare to west coast is the clarity of the sea water. The visibilities for diving spot are great too.
Beneath this clear blue sea, there are many great dive sites & ship wrecks awaiting you to explore.
Genting Highlands can be considered as the most well known theme parks in Malaysia. It's one place where kids have their best memories of ridding roller coaster, Spinner, Tea Cup rides.
For adult, the Casino will be the major attractions. So, it is a holiday destination for the entire family.
Fraser's Hill is a hill station resort just across the border in the State of Pahang.
Considered one of the best places to see the most number of bird specifies. You can see lowland to montane birds. It is the location for an annual international bird watching competition.
From the Gap, there is are two winding roads, one for going up and one from coming from Fraser's Hill.
At the top of Fraser's Hill, the best time for bird watching is the early mornings and late afternoons. There are several popular well marked trails in Fraser's Hills to follow.
Or you can drive around with your car windows open. Follow the cries of birds. You will see a "bird wave" where different species and sizes of birds work together in a group flying from trees to trees to catch the different insects covering from trunk, branch and twigs. Any alarmed insects have little chance to escape.
Fraser's Hill has a famous waterfall, golf course, small post office and plenty of greenery including palms and ferns of various species. It is cool place to enjoy and relax over the weekend or a night or two.
Cameron Highlands is another popular hill resort in Pahang State.
The route from Tapah to the top have many turns and should be driven with caution and moderate speed for safety.
Although the temperature is no longer as cool as before due to clearing of forests for development, Cameron Highlands is still a nice cool place where strawberries can be grown.
There are many places selling pots of flowers, plants and cacti. They all are blooming and thriving but not necessary will continue to grow this same way at your gardens in hotter lower elevations.
There is a famous Robinson's Falls and trails but be wary of the famous disappearance story of Englishman Thompson from Bangkok who got lost and was never found.
A visit of to one of tea plantation and processing shop is fun. Be wary that the roads on the tea plantation can be damaging to your car.
Then a visit to Old Smoke's House for English tea. You are suddenly transported to England.
Most tourists enjoyed Cameron Highlands, it is the getting there that can make some carsick.
Many people are mistaken that Genting Highlands is located in Kuala Lumpur becuase of the close proximity and short travel time. They do not realise that Genting Highlands is actually located in State of Pahang.
I purposely created this tip here. Anyone visited my Pahang page will hopefully remember Genting is not so Kuala Lumpur.
Majority of the West Malaysian would have visited Genting Highlands at least once in their lifetime.
One of the newer hotels, with extended indoor Theme Park from whatever Genting Hotel cannot accommodate.
This hotel is probably one of those smallest attached toilet for regular rooms. Not so advisable for those with big-everything to stay in here.
Theme Park Hotel & Genting Hotel are better places to stay in.
Since Genting Highlands is a great family getaway, it’s natural to target at kids requirement as well.
Ultimately, Genting management is target at adults who are qualify for casino gaming. Genting was setup with casino business in mind in the first place.
Caterpillar train is one way to explore the theme park if you're here for the first time. You can have good vantage view for all the outdoor facilities. You can decide what are those best rides you are going to do later while commutes slowly in the train.
I'm not going to introduce rides available in the park. They are mostly excitable fast rides similar to all the well-known theme park.
Driving on the Karak Highway from Kuala Lumpur, Kuantan is at the end of this easterly route that ends on the sea coast of the South China Sea.
Visited the famous Cherating Beach and Teluk Chempedak.
Kuantan is a great place to buy salted fish and packets of "ready-for-oil-fry" dry crackers of fish, prawn and cuttle fish.
Further south of Kuantan is the royal town of Pekan.
Stayed overnight in Jerantut. It was nearest major town to Kuala Tembeling, the entrance of Taman Negara (National Park).
It is a typical small Malaysian town with prewar double storey terraced buildings with shops on the ground floor while residents stay on the top floor.
The railway line from Gemas to Kota Bahru passes through the outskirt of town.
You can buy some supplies here if you are camping out for a few days in Taman Negara.
Drove to Kuala Lipis on the way north to Kelantan.
Kuala Lipis is a riverine town at the confluence Jelai River and Lipis River. So you can go by boat down to Pahang river or in a royal barge back in the past all the Pekan at the coast of South China Sea.
The railway line from Gemas in the south to Kota Bharu in the north also passes through the town.
The town prewar double storey terraced shop houses are dated in late 19th or early 20th century.
There are several nearby limestone caves where Kuala Lipis is the gateway.
The bear named Muda. He;s 3 1/2 years old as of Oct 2004 and has a new female companion called Dayang who is only 2 years old. She apparently is still undergoing through a familiarity process where getting used to people. Well, they're a pair of cute Malaysian Sun Bears where only at THIS place you can actually touch and feed them.
We chose this colonial-style boutique hotel in search of a cozy and personal place to stay for our...more
