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！
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)
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)
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, …
Ling Sen Tong cave temple makes for the best pictures with its colourful deity statues and architecture. The interior of the cave shrines look pretty cool with the blackened ceiling with flecks of gold on it, but otherwise, the shrines are very functional and not too interesting. I estimate that it would take roughly 20 minutes to explore Ling Sen Tong at a leisurely pace.
Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, all of the staircases to the upper floors were blocked off and inaccessible. We were only able to get as far as the second cave room with the small altar that is pictured above. Whereas a tourist would usually take 30 minutes to explore the entire cave and the grounds, we only spent a total of 10 minutes here – five minutes in the cave temple and another five in the garden. With only the ground floor sanctums open to visitors at this time, Nam Thean Tong can feel like a dull disappointment instead of memorable in its own right.
Da Seng Ngan Temple at this time has only one review on TripAdvisor, but it is highly rated on Google which is the only reason why this temple was even on our radar. The restoration works are still ongoing, and the temple seems to have lofty ambitions to add one thousand golden Buddha statues by the river in front of the temple. In a few years, this might be a gorgeous, sprawling temple to visit.
After the other section, we were again lucky to see so many people queuing and was in time to try out these section before close out for next timing which is 2-3 hours later if I am not mistaken. The 4d Adventure Theater is the most impressive by far. Should not miss this part.
Nice view in the park
