I didn't know that the water fall I've seen from the highway was Lata Kinjang until I read about it from a brochure…And yes it was, majestic indeed!! I wanted to dip in but my mum refuse to spend much time over there since she wanted to visit our relative so I did something…Faking a fall. But I was punished and I indeed fell for real into the water! It wasn't so painful after all, but wait till your tired and everything will start to ache….
I'm not too sure whether Pangkor has as many visitors as Langkawi and It been years since I’ve visited Pankor but never the less I still could remember the nice beach there.
While in Pangkor , you could mingle with the friendly kampong people or observing the fishermen daily live. Pangkor Island is one of the place to visit if you want to feel the serenity of the ' Village Life ' and to get away from the city life for awhile!
This tower is constructed & still a functional water tank that supply to surrounding area. Because the tower is however leaning to one side, it has becoming a famous landmark for Teluk Intan town.
You won’t find diamond here although the direct translation of Teluk Intan means “Diamond Bay”. And it’s KM away for actual bay, I don’t know how they come of with that name?
Don’t think we’re silly trying to topple the tower? In fact this is a common shots for almost everyone visiting this Pisa-wannabe.
While some VTers talk so highly about people that they meet in VT meets, i want to emphasize that VTing is just a lifestyle. In reality, we have other friends and colleagues that impacting our daily lives more than anything else. In the both pictures, these are my ex-colleagues (of course my brother as well, the one in funny position) who are joining us after our 4WD road trip to East Coast. They cannot stand we keep tempting & interrupting their work whenever we call back from our trip to office. So, they decided to drive 180km away to join us at Melissa’s house for BBQ & also the silly-topping-the-tower thing.
The 2nd picture is taken at one of the Kuala Selangor seafood places on our way back from Teluk Intan.
Pulau Pangkor is the place to go for a picnic in Perak.
Other beaches more easily accessible are Teluk Batik, near Lumut, and Pasir Panjang, Segari.
Most other coastal areas are muddy and overgrown with mangroves and not suitable for swimming.
You could also swim in the rivers and streams at the foothills.
Kellie’s Castle was constructed as private own villa, but the owner (Kellie-something, I hate history!!!!) pass away before the completion of the castle. Suppose to be the 1st private resident with elevator in Malaysia. It’s now maintain by tourism authority & open for public visit with minimal fees.
You can include Kellie's Castle visit as part of your Ipoh White Coffee/Bean sprout Chicken Rice or the Gua Tempulung trip itinerary. Refer to your map or signage, look out for direction to Batu Gajah & you'll sure enjoy this one of the few castles found in Malaysia.
Take a stroll in the Town of Ipoh, snap some photos and paint the Town if you’re
an Artist. One of our friend who is a professional water colour painter finds that
old buildings in Ipoh are very interesting to paint.
The landmark of Teluk Intan, formerly Telok Anson, is the Clock Tower which was built in 1885. It was also used to store water.
The tower is located in a small park in the middle of town.
Teluk Intan is located at an ox bow of Perak River which almost encircles the town. Teluk Intan is located off the PLUS highway in Southern Perak near the Selangor State.
When in town, buy the famous biscuit, "heo piah", Tiger brand, made straight from the oven at its outlet near the river. Ask the local resident for direction. It is a small town.
Located in the northern part of Perak, Belum is one of the most recent large rainforest open to the public. Crossing the East West highway between Gerik in Perak and Jeli in Kelantan, you will drive across the dam at Banding.
Contact: Perak State Economic Planning Unit (Tourism) at 05-5225119 or Perhilitan Perak at 05-7911164 or Malaysian Nature Society(MNS). I joined the expedition with MNS.
The valley is drowned for the dam and you can see the eerie dead tree trunks above the water. At one of the dead trunk, you can see a family of bats flying out every dusk. There are hornbills in the sky. Lot of dungs of elephants. And a bloom of the largest flower in the world, the Rafflesia if you are lucky.
There is a northern and southern section of Belum Forest. The northern part is less explored and more like Southern Thai forest.
The Perak Caves in Ipoh is very popular with tourists.
Sam Poh Tong on the way to Gopeng is also very well-known. The more adventurous can explore uninhabited areas for more caves.
You can go adventure caving in the many hills around Ipoh.
Perak Tong is one of the most famous Buddhist Limestone Cave Temple in Malaysia.
Inside the cave are giant statues of Buddha and other Chinese dieties and enlightened general and legendary figures.
There is a steep series of steps that lead to an opening in the cave giving a panoromic view.
In front of the temple are some ponds with lotus plants. Many shops nearby sell the popular fruits like pomelos, guavas.
Location of Perak Tong is along the old highway 15 minutes drive north of Ipoh town heading towards Sungai Siput.
Located near Gopeng, just south of Ipoh, is the majestic Gua Tempurung Cave. There is a bright as well as a dark caves. Different guided tours are up for selection from easy to adventurous and getting wet. Torch light and helmet are available for rent. But be prepared to get dirty with dust or muddied.
Fun adventurous though more interesting back in the years from it was in its natural condition after the area was opened to public after years of being considered a security zone due to past communist insurgencies.
Still loads of active fun.
