Road Less Travelled: Lakeside Kampong Adventure _ Waterfall/Kayak

The Malaysia Government has this Homestay program to boost its local tourism. However as Singaporeans, we really don't know the place well enough and Yee Yee has found such a place.

Stay in traditional Malay house and get the chance to taste home cooked Malay food which its so delicious and awesome.

You can spend your time kayak around the lake or visit some waterfall around the area or you can even do hiking up to the hill to site of airplane crash during WW2 if not mistaken.

If you not the adventureous type you can visit the Perak Man at Lenggong and not to missed out the Making of Labu Sayong (water pitcher - cottage industry).

See pictures:

Price 3D2N (min 4 to go)

2 Choices for transportation:
- Drive until buttock open flower - SGD80 (toll + petrol) per pax
- Fly to Ipoh via firefly.

Firefly cost - MYR 500 return from Singapore around SGD200
Van to pick up - SGD50

Total Cost to fly & the place - SGD600 (minimum 8 to go)
Total Cost to sit car - SGD 430 (minimum 4 to go)

It is really spend more money to enjoy the place versus spend less money and get tortured in car longer. If driving I would like to go at least 4 days 3 nights.

Just indicate if you are interested or not. Will confirm again in June.

    Kelvin, there is a slight hiccup. The cost structure has changed and the price increased.

    I will renegotiate when we have at least 8 going. In the meantime, have to stick with the current price first.
