Village Discovery Tour by Bicycle / Modern Electronic Buggy
I had drive the buggy for few rounds before handed back to the counter. Nice experience anyway and it’s actually first time driving an electrical car!
Walk around is fine since they had designed and planted of total 9km passion fruit shaded canopy. Alternatively, you can rent a buggy for driving around the park with your friends and family.
This tour will lead you to nearby villages, see their culture and very unique villages homes.
They have the largest cactus collection, wait until you see them……from small 2 inches to several feets in height.
Have you see the world’s largest land crab, biggest weight 5 kg, this crab is gift from Australia Government, Christmas Island…or spend RM 5000, catch the flight to Christmas Island to visit…
Not seen in many places where you can actually drive through the park and touch or feed the friendly animal in front of you. You’ll have a very close encounter with deers there.
Throughout the 168 acres of pristine natural environment, you can expect to find over 800 species of tropical fruits,one of the world largest collection. What’s more, you can touch, taste them.
Not to miss is the unique Aboriginal Native Village on spot. A real combination of any kind of tropical flowers, orchids, bird, quali, ostrich, water lily and tropical fruits.
The entrance to the village.
Eeeeeee…..scary is it?
I saw the monkey face there. 🙂
Shaded canopy path. Fruit season is expected on July, but I visited this place on May, so not much fruit can be seen. So I believe this month now is the right time.
