A Cave That Takes You Back In Time

It reminded me of something out of an Indiana Jones movie. Inside the cave, it opened up to this massive great room that looked like a natural cathedral. very impressive. There are not enough professional pix taken of this cavern .....and that's a shame. They have one tour that takes you to the top of [...]

A must visit. Don't get misled by the first temple at the entry to the road or for that mayer the second one. Lim Seng Tong is resplendent in the brightest color but the natural beauty is completely lost. Good photo opportunity though. Down the road is Nam Ting Tong which is definitely more natural [...]

LOVE the idea of exploring uncharted grounds but don’t know where to go? Well, for a start, Ulu Chepor in Perak is so “ulu” (remote) that it’ll take your breath away! You can trek in the million-year-old rainforest that escaped the last Ice Age. Wallow in an uncharted creek and “discover” rare plants that may [...]

The bean sprouts were cooked well but I've never [...]

The unique thing about this hillside resort is that nature has been left alone to flourish so bountifully. Gazette as a permanent forest reserve in 1910, Bukit Larut’s untouched forests are filled with wildlife such as birds, squirrels and [...]

The Magical Pangkor Island

The name Pangkor may have originated from the Thai word Pang Ko which means ‘beautiful island’. However others believe it may have been a memorial to Pang Kui, a legendary Chinese adventurer said to have lent his skills in seamanship to the bands of pirates this island once sheltered. One of the beaches at Pangkor [...]

Kicking back in Lumut

Lumut holds promise as a weekend getaway. When people scout for holiday destinations at islands off the west coast, they usually head to Penang, Langkawi or Pangkor. But Lumut town, famed for its port and Royal Malaysian Navy base, is steadily drawing in tourists because it is just a ferry ride away from Pangkor. On [...]
