After having our late lunch, we decide to explore the rest of the wildlife park… After all, Sunway Lost World Of Tambun has over 100 animal species you can discover and I was only too excited to go meet my animal friends, the ones I have met countless times such as Rain the Giraffe, Ruby the Raccoon (though I can’t seriously cannot differentiate which one is Ruby), Awang the Sulphur Cockatoo..
So for this time.. I am listing 6 new (and also not so new) things I enjoyed doing this visit…. which you seriously need to check out too
Lost World of Tambun, Ipoh 怡保双威打扪迷失乐园烧烤套餐提供的食材非常丰富， 有鲜甜美味的新鲜虾只、 多汁的烤鸡翅、 烧鱼、 烤香肠、 还有来不及拍照就被一扫而空的牛扒、 烤番薯等等， 大家都吃得非常开心呢！
行程的第二天我們有當地人帶路先嘗怡保的經典料粉早餐，再出發往宜力進軍。途中數度給榴蓮誘惑，終於忍不住停下來飽食一頓。到了Lenggong新村吃個午餐，和另一幫人馬會合，才正式往Gunung Kerunai去。Gunung Kerunai，又名阿婆山，與隔壁阿公山(Gunung Kendorong) 相依相偎。此山...
Hiking up Gunung Kerunai (1000m) takes about 3h30m with full load for camping. The scenery is very nice, consist of Gunung Kenderung next to it, and plenty of clouds. The top is big enough to host..
阿婆山 (Gunung Kerunai) 的难度不高，而且有绝美的日出云海，所以很多人都会选择单日攻顶并原路返回；但也正是因为难度不高，加上我们山长水远来到了这里，两天一夜的露营也就能更好地享受这座山林。这次队长 Sandy 特别安排了跨越的路线，让我们能够欣赏完整路线的景色。事实证明这一趟真的太值了，尤其是隔天下山的那一段路，简直就像走在云端上的仙境！
If you’re in Taiping, do take time out to visit the lake and attached park. Situated on the site of a former tin mine, it was established in the 1880s, and was apparently the first public garden in what is now Malaysia.
我来太平湖公园共三次, 但是没有一次是走完整个太平湖, 期待有一天我可以在傍晚时分来太平湖公园走走看看整个太平湖的面貌, 而不是因为猛烈的太阳而匆匆离去~
"The 64 hectares (160 acres) site was the first public garden in Malaya, and was cherished for its beauty; it has been well-maintained since its opening" .......and I must say, they are so well maintained!
The following morning, BabySumoKids went on their first kayaking experience. The backdrop couldn't have been anymore perfect; with the 400 million year old limestone hills and surrounding nature. I was majorly impressed with Hubby's kayaking skills too. Another activity checked off our bucket list ;) For those interested, you can try kayaking for RM5 per person.
One of the most amazing, coolest thing we did during the recent school holidays was getting to see, touch and feed Rain the Giraffe upclose at Lost World of Tambun, Ipoh. Rain is a 2-year old male giraffe born in Zoo Negara on a rainy day (hence the name). Now, Rain lives with other safari animals such as zebras and ostriches at the Giraffe & Friends section of the park.
we like the petting zoo and surrounded natural environment. The hot spring, sam and hubby had an enjoyable time but definitely not include me >_< Hopefully they can improve the enforcement of the dress code rules as well as the cleanliness of the pool water (if it really caused by lack of maintenance)
Zoo Taiping is one of the landmarks in Taiping, Perak was established in 1961 and is located in a natural abode in the Taiping Lake Gardens near the foothills of Maxwell Hill (Bukit Larut). Zoo Taiping is a central landmark that is not to be missed. This place is dedicated to family and kids. This is a great place for the kids to go near and have a real look at the animals rather than on screen. Zoo Taiping now houses around 1500 animals from 140 species of mammals, birds, reptiles, and fishes.
Unlike Singapore Zoo, the animal exhibits during daytime and nighttime are the same. Therefore, I do not think it is absolutely necessary to visit both.
Entrance is RM17 for adults (inclusive of GST) and RM8.50 for children
If you can find a reliable ride there and back, you should make time to go to Tempurung Cave for whatever kind of tour you fancy. This was an amazing, extensive cave where I felt like I got more than my money’s worth considering how long I spent there. I also loved how the dry tours were self-guided so that I didn’t feel rushed by a guide telling me it’s time to move on to the next stop. I’m already planning for a wet tour the next time I’m in Ipoh!
The inside of Tempurung Cave is so grand that you won’t ever feel claustrophobic… at least not on the dry tours. The massive caverns have dripping stalactites that loom high overhead, yet are so large that some are beginning to join with stalagmites they have created. The long, unbroken passageway climbs up and disappears deep into the mountain, out of sight.
整个路程我们大约用了一个半小时~ 因为这里都是要爬阶梯的, 所以老人家来的时候要注意一下~
While Sam Poh Tong is overrated in my opinion, Kek Lok Tong is sorely underrated. Even though Kek Lok Tong has a bunch of positive reviews online (more than Sam Poh Tong), it doesn’t get half the recognition that Sam Poh Tong receives. It is completely omitted from some top Ipoh attraction lists and only makes it on to more broad lists. I didn’t even know about this temple until my mom suggested that I visit it.
Hovering in the middle of the pond is the Goddess of Mercy, Kwan Yin.
-- The Meaning of Kek Lok Tong is Ultimate Bliss or Great Happiness . it is located at Gunung Rapat and it is not that easy to find , need to go through residential area before arriving at Kek Lok Tong . The cave has been used as a place of worship since the 1920's but during the 1960's the area was engaged in iron mining and parts of the cave were excavated for this activity .
We were up in Ipoh for some cycling and on the second afternoon went riding along the Kinta River. To kick of the ride we went on a short loop at Ipoh Mrual Street. This is a back-alley that runs parallel to Jalan Masjid; between Jalan Laxamana & Jalan Datuk Onn Jaafar. A good landmark will be the beautifully unique Masjid Panglima Kinta, where there are ample parking.
What’s a charming little Malaysian city without street art? Following in the footsteps of Penang and Melaka, Ipoh is similarly decorated with colourful scenes on the sides of random buildings, sprucing up otherwise dull and crumbling walls.
Considering how many visitors it gets on a daily basis, Sam Poh Tong should have much better maintenance. Its rundown appearance and general uncleanliness make this temple feel overrated and not the best cave temple in Ipoh that every blog says it is. The history is deeper at Sam Poh Tong if you’re into that, but if you’re interested more in visuals, Kek Look Tong – which no one has even heard of – is much more impressive and well-kept in my opinion.
Top Ten listmakers obviously love this place, but even Ipohites seem to share this preference for Sam Poh Tong. During my first visit to Ipoh, my cousin only took me to see this temple. He claimed that the other two weren’t worth seeing, despite their close proximity. If you have lots of time in Ipoh, Sam Poh Tong and the other two temples are a couple of hours well spent.
At the centre of the main courtyard is a God of Prosperity and a Wishing Tree, its branches weighed down by hundreds (if not thousands) of wishes written on red cloth.
Having a shot here at Number 5 stop: Bao Qing Tian (for those who watch Chinese drama, you will know who he is - the justice judge in ancient China who famous with his dark face and moon sign on his forehead)
Go for the sunset river cruise (RM 30) with a visit to Pulau Bangau to watch thousands of migratory birds. A must do in Teluk Intan, absolutely worth it.
Our River Cruise was by Sahril Pekan Enterprise and we had Mr Sahril as our tour guide too.. He was definitely very knowledgeable and passionate about conserving the biodiversity of Teluk Intan as well as pretty knowledgeable in providing us all the details and facts of the places we passed by…
Probably some of you are like us - being city dwellers makes us nature lovers. We've always had strong affinity to natural beings, the flora and fauna, waters and ...
I was invited by some members of Gear Nation Motorbike club to join them on a tour of Ipoh and food fest. This was what I saw and captured at this nice ...
Overall, it was a perfect stay for us in Ipoh. Excellent service by the staff, super clean hotel that I would love to recommend everyone looking for a place to stay in Ipoh. It cost me RM 193 for a Superior Double room.
The river walk at Kinta riverfront is a romantic place by the river bank. With the kaleidoscopic neon trees, superb reflection into the water, oldies in the air (from live band at The Sands Bistro & Cafe), it is a perfect place to enjoy an evening stroll. On one side of the riverbank, …
Waterfall Abseiling at The Hidden Gem of Gopeng ~ Geruntum Falls or Lata Merkor located at the end of Ulu Geruntum Village in Gopeng, Perak.I went with Amy o...
Lata Merkor waterfall, also known as Geruntum Falls, is located almost at the end of a road of a village in Gopeng, Perak. After our nearby hike at Bukit Batu Putih Gopeng and lunch at Gopeng Hill Asam Laksa, we visited this waterfall to refresh our energy.
The tin dredge in Batu Gajah along Jalan Tanjung Tualang is the last witness to the prosperity of tin mining in Malaysia. Also known as Tanjung Tualang Dredge No 5 (TT5), this 4500 tonne giant floating on the excavation site is a precious remain that tells the history of Malaysia, and especially so for Perak, …
When it comes to waterfalls, Perak slays. Thank its mountainous landscape for that. The Titiwangsa, Kledang and Bintang ranges are the source of countless watery fascinations; many pale in comparison to the magnifiscent Lata Puteh.
Lata Puteh is an epic waterfall in Perak, just by the side of the A6 road in Batu Kurau. Lata Puteh used to be known as the 3rd tallest waterfall in South East Asia, but had the claim removed due to factual inaccuracy. Still, it is one of the most impressive waterfalls I have visited! The trail to reach the waterfall was short and steep.
Kellie’s Castle isn’t overly impressive and is good for an hour, maybe an hour and a half, of exploring. The lack of anything inside means you’re just wandering through empty room after empty room with occasionally some plaques to read. I didn’t have a bad time at Kellie’s Castle, but it might not be worth the time it takes to get here. Especially if you’re just coming for this one attraction (or worse, taking a bus), you might spend more time travelling here than actually in the castle. Except to those completionists out there who want to see everything there is to see in the Ipoh area, this attraction is not a must.
