Bukit Pak Apil is located just at the South of the KT city center between Jalan Kemajuan and Jalan Cherung Lanjut. The walk / hike up the hill (5min to the halfway point with a playground and orchid garden, another 10min for the way up the highest point) starts from the parking area at Jalan Kemajuan near the junction to Jalan Air Jernih / Jalan Cherung Lanjut.
Taman Panorama offers fresh air with lots of greeneries and calming views of the ocean and city center when you reach the peak.
the first part of the hike up the hill will be along this elevated walkway through the greenery of Bukit Pak Apil
After the playground and recreation area, the 2nd leg of the "hike" (it takes about 15min to reach the top from the parking at the foot of the hill) is along this road. At the top of the hill is a view tower and abandoned mansion (at the time of writing this in early 2013), which was supposed to be or will be a restaurant or function hall
the panoramic view from the top with the bridge on the left and the city center on the right
view to the West towards Sultan Mahmud Bridge (the highway) over the Terengganu River, and the Islamic Civilisation Park with the Crystal Mosque just behind on the left
view towards the sea (where Batu Burok Beach is located) and the Chinese Cemetary
Boat Ride to Taman Negara, Taman Negara
The scenic 2.5 h boat ride between Kuala Tembeling and Kuala Tahan (Taman Negara Headquarters) makes the trip to the park itself a highlight.
