RM230 (min.2px) includes meals and transporation
The tour to Chiling Waterfalls with certified nature guide Happy Yen starts around 8am in the morning. You will be back late in the afternoon. The tour includes lunch, tea and snacks at the waterfall and dinner. Yen is a very pleasant guy to spend the day with and he explains a lot about nature, religion and mental well-being. It's an enlightening and fun day far away from the hectic city life:
1) Buddhist Temple
2) Lunch in Kuala Kubu Bahru
3) Stop at Selangor Dam
4) Jungle Trek to Chiling Waterfall
It takes about 1.5h to get to the falls depending on the wheather. You need to cross the river 6 times, if the water level is high then Yen will use ropes for safety which will make the journey a bit longer. After a beautiful walk through the jungle you will be rewarded with the breathtaking waterfall where you get to cool yourself down in the water. If you go on a week day you might even be the only ones there!
5) Hot Springs
Yen will try to teach how to make your mind win over your body and dip you legs (if not your whole body) in the 42 degrees celcius hot water. I've failed miserably and only managed a few seconds
Well deserved good food at the end of the tour
7) Return Ride
On the way back, Yen takes the scenic route on a smaller road through a lot of green before you are swallowed up again by the city near the Batu Caves
Georgetown and Melaka just became Unesco world heritage sites
On Monday, July 7, 2008, the historic city centre of Melaka and Georgetown, Penang with their mostly Chinese shophouses and colonial buildings were just been added into the list of Unesco World Heritage sites. Therefore, Malaysia now has four sites on the list, the other two being Gunung Mulu National Park (Sarawak, tropical karst area) and Kinabalu Park (Sabah, highest peak in South-east Asia).
Being a majority muslim country, alcohol is rather expensive compared to other Asian countries because of the so-called sin taxes. But alcohol is served in most convenience stores and Chinese restaurants. It’s also cheap in Langkawi because it is the status of a duty-free zone.
