Teluk Intan, the third largest town in Perak, is booming. The leaning clock tower in Teluk Intan is one of the town’s many tourist attractions. While doing my 3D2N Ipoh trip recently, I decided to drop by to check-it out.
Teluk Intan, The Leaning Tower
Located and stand still in the middle of the city, this old architecture sit in the heart of Teluk Intan town. Built in 1892 and since then tilted due to underground stream on the site.
During the daytime, one can walk into the building, however, my visits doesn’t allow due to some maintenance carry on.
This pagoda-shaped tower was originally used to house a water tank supplied to the town during emergency. Now the functionality that can be observed is just a clock tower and perhaps some stories and museum-alike artifacts inside this tower.
In the lust of hidden greenery of Ipoh, a fully water park theme appears to emerge from the surrounding limestone cliffs and vibrant jungle, waiting to be explored. The Lost World of Tambun comes as part of 3D2N of my Ipoh trip.
Lost World of Tambun @ Ipoh
I’d bought tickets for Lost World of Tambun from MATTA Fair which cost me under RM30 per pax. As this is non-comparable to Sunway Lagoon, I would give a try because it sounds a mystery world to me. Hence, this trip is made off.
There are 8 part of Lost World of Tambun that comes ranging from river of adventure, raging waterfalls, rushing rapids, majestic cliffs, magnificent tigers, ancient caves and hot springs with ancient therapeutic properties.
- Petting Zoo
- Tin Valley
- Amusement Park
- Team Building
- Hotspring Spa
- Swan Lake
- Water Park
- Tiger Valley
Ipoh, my favorite historical town and due to its strategically surrounded by limestone caves, I’ve many places yet to be cover in all my previous trip past year. In my recent trip, 3D2N back to Ipoh, I’d a good time visiting this wonderful nature place, Gunung Lang, The Recreational Park.
Gunung Lang – A Recreational Park
Even it’s called a Mountain Lang (Gunung Lang), it’s not exactly a place for hiking or expedition activities, but more on recreational and sight-seeing places. A short break and we continue with our plan to Gunung Lang, not for hiking, but for photo shooting. It has incredibly view lake hemmed in by majestic limestone outcrops.
I cover this place only in the afternoon, means after I check-in into Hotel Abby.
Traveling from KL-Ipoh is a bit time-consuming. I started from KL as early as 6am. Managed to catch up with some famous eatery places in Ipoh at after 8am. I stopped at famous Nam Heong White Coffee stall for breakfast. We ordered Char Kuey Teow, egg tart, mee hoon and most importantly Ipoh town white coffee.
It doesn’t stop here because good food is everywhere in Ipoh.
A long waiting for fruit king was finally paid off with my last visit to Krau, Pahang. A very delicious and expensive Musang King was part of the menu is available ala buffet (eat all you can). A short trip to Fraser Hill was done after the fiesta for sight-seeing and lunch before we go back to KL.
Jalan-Jalan Cari Durian (Durian Hunting Day Trip)
Although durian season is over, but my last trip for durian hunting was a fruitful one. Having one or two in KL is going to hurt my pocket. Hey! This fruit how come look like luxury item by the price? It should come cheap as we’re the large producer for durian. Don’t you agree?
To counter this, I knew from a friend that we can actually opt for an orchard visit for durian, pay for a fix amount and eat all you can. We booked through a friend network and they reserved a basket for us. Normally they’ll transport it out via lorry if no reservation done. Else you can buy from road side where the stalls stand. Bargaining starts from there.
You may not hear about Danga Bay until you come across with Tune Hotels that build at premier location of Danga Bay. That’s how I come across this place, thanks to Tune Hotels strategic build-up location.
Danga Bay – Malaysia’s premier waterfront city
Danga Bay has a close equivalent to this hotel chain because of marketing threw by them. However, this place was known as Malaysia’s premier waterfront city and the largest recreational park in the city of Johor Bahru. I was thinking of famous and busy street wandering around with all the shops bargaining products. Similarly, I would imagine some equivalent of happening here. In fact, a total reversed.
