Melaka

Melaka (a.k.a. Malacca) is the capital of the Malaysian state of Malacca.
Traditionally, the spot where Melaka stands today was the center of Malaccan history. It was the capital of the Malaccan Sultanate and the center of the Malay world in the 15th and the 16th century before it fell to the Portuguese in 1511. Centuries of colonization by the Portuguese, Dutch and the British have shaped the architecture of the town.

Kuala Terengganu

Kuala Terengganu, KT in short, is located at the east coast of the Peninsula Malaysia and at the mouth of the Sungai Terengganu (or Terengganu River) that empties here into the South China Sea. It is the capital of the state of Terengganu, which forms, together with Kedah and Kelatan, the heartland of Malay culture. KT is a good stop for one or 2 days before moving on along the east coast or towards the National Park / Tasik Kenyir.

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 ;)

6) Dinner

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
