    Leaning Tower of Teluk Intan

    by yipsufen Updated Mar 31, 2007
    The Leaning Tower of Teluk Intan

    Malaysia boasts its own equivalent to the world famous Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy, right here at the heart of the Teluk Intan town centre. Like its Italian counterpart, the Leaning Tower of Teluk Intan has a leftward slant and all the ingredients to make it an architectural sight to behold.

    Standing ay 25.5m tall, its construction detail gives it an appearance which comprises of eight different levels. Once inside, however, one will be surprised to discover that the building is actually divided into only three storeys.

    This pagoda-style structure was built in 1885 by a Chinese contractor by the name of Leong Choon CHong and was originally used as a covered water tank to store portable water for the immediate vicinity. Today it stands as an architectural oddity that continues to attract visitors to Teluk Intan.

    Drop by Bidor's Pun Chun Restaurant for...

    by samantha_chee Written Aug 30, 2005

    Drop by for very nice Duck Drumstick Noodle. Besides, it's also well known for its Wanton Noodle, though i think its Duck Drumstick noodle is the best! The bad point is, it costs more expensive than usual. May be because of their fame. The waiter's service also not good. We have to waited for more than 10 min (non-peak hour, 8 pm) for order of noodle.

    Duck Drumstick Noodles starts from RM 6.00 per bowl.
    Wanton Noodle (standard) starts from RM 4.50 per plate, extra charges for Add-on side dishes e.g. chicken feet, mushroom, shui-gau, wanton etc.

    Leaning Tower of Teluk Intan

    Picture of Leaning Tower hang in its interior

    It is the purpose of all tourists who come here. It was built about 120 years ago as a water tank for clean water supply for this area.

    If you drive from KL using Plus Highway, exit Bidor (KL-Bidor journey is about 2-3 hrs). You will be "in" Bidor for less than 10 min (if smooth traffics). You will pass by enfamous Bidor "Pun Chun" Restaurant (on your right). Follow signboard to Teluk Intan. Bidor-TI journey will takes about 40-50 minutes. Drive directly towards town centre. Leaning Tower's signboards will lead you all the way there.

    Leaning Tower of Teluk Intan

    The Leaning Tower of Pisa is not the only leaning tower we have. Tucked in a small town in Malaysia, we also find a leaning tower of Teluk Intan.
