    Pedicure at the The Fish Spa

    by Chuckaziz Written Mar 1, 2010

    Remove dead skin cells of your feet with the help of the skin-eating fish at this spa. The fish will nibble away the dead skin of your feet leaving the skin looking fresher and healthier. Visitors will be charged RM10.00 for a 30-minute session but you will normally want your massage session to last an hour.

    When people mention Bukit Merah, this is what they have in mind --- the Water Park and Bukit Merah Laketown.

    How have they missed the true Bukit Merah !

    But what to do, the power of money changes your perception. Big investment needs big business to ensure big profits !

    If you backpack, say sorry to them. Go on to the REAL Bukit Merah ........

    Orang Utan Island

    by wufei Updated Apr 30, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A lake Cruiser will ferry visitors from the Marina Village Main Jetty and the Eco Park Jetty to the Orang Utan Island. Step onto the specially built platform and the journey into the world of these intelligent mammals. See these animals in their natural habitats - building a nest high up in the trees, searching for food and interacting with each other.

    Take a walk through the 100 meter "cage tunnel" for an "up close and personal" view of these primates. The steel tunnel is a protective enclosure for visitors at Orang Utan Island, it is humans that are being caged, not the Orang Utans.

    Besides spending the day with Asia's Great Apes, lucky visitors might even see macaques scurrying around for food or taking a nice, cool deep by the lake.

    The Orang Utan, or literally translated "man of the forest," builds its tree nest about 16 metres above the ground. Known as the World's Great Apes, the Orang Utan populates the tropical fores of Sabah and Sarawak, west, east and central Kalimantan and Northern Sumatra.

    In captivity, these intelligent mammals can be trained to perform tricks and to use sign language to communicate their needs.

    Reaching a height of 1.5m, the male Orang Utan weighs between 74kg-100kg (double the weigh of a female), it attains sexual maturity at 15 but is only successful at attracting females when the cheek pads fully develop at age 20. Females reach sexually maturity when it is about about 12 years old but only starts beeding from 14-16.

    The female has a menstrual cycle of 29-32 days and carries her baby for 9 months before giving birth. During the forst two years, the baby Orang Utan's mental development is a kin of humas. The young normally stay with their mothers until maturity of 5 years old.

    Eco Park

    by wufei Updated Feb 7, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Featuring a unique eco-tourism concept, the three acres Eco Park is Perak's best kept secret showcasing a variety of local and exotic flora and fauna including birds, reptiles, otters, primates, bears, deer and many more.

    These wildlife animals roam freely in specially designed aviaries and pool areas that are created to simulate their natural habitats. You can walk through the elevated boardwalk constructed specially to wind its way through the displays and into the jungle canopy to view the animals up close.

    At the Eco Park entrance, Malaysia'a one and only 200m "Skycycle" ride accross the tropical rainforest promises a breathtaking view and a closer look inside the Pet's Park corner.

    At the Bird Park, bird like Macaws, Cockatoos, Spoonbills, Swans, Bulbulls and starling abounds. Gasps in wonder as these exotic creatures feed from the palm of your hands or have your family photo taken with them in lush green surroundings.

    On the Tropical Trek, a colony of mammals, playful primates, dusky leaf, and squirrel monkeys, bornean gibbons and otters often come out to mingle with their "guests" while in the Pet's Park, deer, squirrels, rabbits, adorable white rats, guinea pigs and exotic chickens peer from every corner.

    Don't be alarmed if you meet some cheeky squirrels monkeys and capuchin monkeys on the trail, they are just looking to welcome you to their home.

    At th Reptile Park, walk alongside iguanas, monitor lizards, tortoises, cobras, vipers, mangrove snakes and carnivorious bird like owl and brahminy kites. You can also snuggle up with our friendly giant python for a memoriable snapshot.

    During the Feeding Talk sessions, interact and see various tame animals like the otters perform tricks as you feed them in their natural surroundings.

    Also see intelligent exotic animals respond to their keeper's commands at the Animal Show held four times daily ar 11:15am, 1pm, 3pm and 5pm.

    You have the water-park inside there.

    Not for me, maybe with some little kids, it's fun going in there.
