Visite Malaisie 2009
SEREMBAN : Ville sans charme qui découragera les touristes. Architecture Minangkabau,
caractérisée par des toits en forme de corne, date de l’influence de Sumatra au XVII. A 40km de
seremban, Sri menanti, vieux palais Istana lama sri menanti, devenu un musée.
PORT DICKSON : Petite ville, mais principalement une plage sans grand caractère. Mer polluée.
ALOR SETAR : Capitale du Kedah. Guère d’intérêt touristique. Ville tristounette. Masjid Zahir
(1)(1912), considérée comme l’une des + belles mosquées du pays. Face à elle, le balai basar (1898),
derrière se trouve le vieux palais du Sultan où naquit le père de la Malaisie en 1963.

BATU CAVES : 08-20h. Bus Intrakota n°11D du bangkok bank bus sta nd (près marché central), ou
Cityliner n°69 depuis central market. 1RM – 30min. Limestone hill, which has a series of caves and
cave temples, located 13 km N. of Kuala Lumpur. The cave is one of the most popular Hindu shrines
outside India. Batu Caves is said to be around 400 million years old. Batu Caves is said to have been
discovered by K. Thamboosamy Pillai, an Indian trader, in the 1800s. the largest and best known is
the Temple or Cathedral Cave, so named because it houses several Hindu shrines. Standing at 42.7
meter (140.09 ft) high, the world's tallest statue of Murugan, a Hindu deity, is located outside Batu
Caves. To reach Cathedral Cave or Temple Cave, visitors have to climb a steep flight of 272 steps.
There are various undeveloped caves which contain a diverse range of cave fauna, including some
unique species, such as Liphistiidae spiders and Eonycteris and Rousettus fruit bats. The Batu Caves
are the sacred place for the Hindu's in Malaysia. The public busses can be boarded at the Pudu Raya
Bus Terminal in Kuala Lumpur.
At your arrival you will be greeted by lots of monkeys, (faites attention quand même, ils ne sont pas
toujours mignons). Bus Nr 70 and 349 are leaving from Lebuh Pudu (in China Town) every 30 minutes.
Journey is about 45 min. Tlj, 7-21h. Autour du site, il y un petit quartier indien avec boutiques typiques
et touristiques. Vous pourrez en profiter pour boire le jus d’une noix de coco fraîchement coupée.
Musée Orang Asli : A 24km de KL, après Batu caves, situated at KM24, Jalan Pahang, Gombak,
Selangor Darul Ehsan. Du samedi au jeudi, 09h00-17h00. Fermé le vendredi. 0RM. Bonne
introduction aux coutumes et culture des orang asli. Bus n°174 depuis le terminal Lebuh Ampang.
Orang Asli is Malay for original people. Today there are 100,000 Orang Asli. Just over half of them
live in the jungle, the others are coastal people and often fishermen. They speak different languages
and many of them are animists. Next to the museum is a small restaurant. It is a good place to have a
meal and wait for the bus.
PULAU BESAR : Located about 3 nautical miles off Pengkalan Pernu at Umbai, 10km south of
Melaka town. The island is ideal for swimming, fishing, snorkelling, camping and picnicking. Pulau
Besar is the largest of eight islands off the coast of Malacca. There is a cave called "Yunos Gua". It is
believed that in ancient times, warriors came to the cave to learn the art of mysticism. Syarikat
Kenderaan Aziz bus line operates regular services to Umbai from the Jalan Tun Ali Terminal in
Malacca town. You can easily reached Pulau Besar by boat from Umbai, which will cost you RM10
(return). There is several beach chalets. TELAGA AIR TAWAR (FRESH WATER WELL). It is a
unique fresh water well exceedingly close to the sea. Legend has it that when the tide is high the
water in the well would be saline but during low tide the water would be fresh. TELAGA TEMPAYAN
(WISHING WELL). Legend has it that this well could make your wishes come true if you dipped your
hand in the well and made the wish.
PULAU BESAR : Baignée dans la mer de chine. Plage blanche, jungle luxuriante. The island is
located within a marine park with crystal clear water ideal for snorkeling. The Island is only 13 km(8
miles) form Mersing and a leisurely boat ride to the resort takes about an hour. Pulau Besar is
surrounded by many nearby islands, like Pulau Mensirip, Pulau Hujung, Pulau Rawa, Pulau Harimau.
Even Pulau Tengah on which Expedition Robinson was filmed, is close to Pula Besar. There are
many interesting activities. One can go snorkelling, fishing, diving or take a trip to all the nearby
islands. Visitors can trek through the woods to see the tropical plants and animals or visit a 'kelong' to
see the fishermen hauling up their nets laden with the bountiful harvest from the sea.
The wild vegetation of the tropical jungle are rich in many different green colours and the sight of
coconut palm dotting the landscape is a normal one. There are about 7 – 8 small villages that are still
populated by around 100 friendly dwellers who are mostly fishermen. At Besar Island, you can take a
visit to the “Expedition Robinson” filming locations and exhibits. Not to mention water activities like
sunbathing, snorkelling, and diving in the crystal clear water. The water is so clear that you can even
see the abundant reefs from the water surface. Here, you can find giant cockles that are over 200 kgs
and 1 meter long shell on the ocean floor around Mersing water. For those who are like to explore
when snorkelling, try hop to Harimau Island (or locally Pulau Harimau) and you will find your “private
salt water swimming pool”, which was formed by a cavern inside the island.

TANJUNG PIAI : A la pointe extrême de la Malaisie. A 75km de JB. It is the southernmost point of
Peninsular Malaysia and thus the most southern point of mainland Asia. Tanjung Piai also features a

visitors' complex. Platforms have been built through the park so visitors can enjoy these mangroves in
comfort. Vue à couper le souffle sur Singapour. C’est un bout du monde. Singes partout. On ne peut y
aller qu’en voiture. A full taxi of four passengers should cost around RM15.
DESARU : Plage à Tanjong penawar. Sable fin. Le mieux est d’y venir en semaine. Accessible depuis
Johor bahru via kota tinggi.
PULAU TINGGI : Belle plage, île solitaire. This island is rich in history. It was once an important stop
for spice traders, probably because of its sheltered harbour. Today, the island is known for its sandy
beach, rolling hills with verdant jungle, several Malay villages. Pulau Tinggi is approximately 45
minutes speed boat ride from Mersing Jetty ou 03h by slow boat.

Tanah rata est le village centre des Cameron Highlands et le + touristique. Petit côté british dû à la
présence d’habitations coloniales, beaucoup de charme. Point de départ de belles balades dans les
environs. Sentiers de 1 à 12. On considère le n°1, 2, 7, 8 comme difficiles, le 4, 9, 11, 12 longs d’une
heure et agréables et les 3, 5, 10 longs de 3h et peu éprouvants. Up in the Cameron Highlands are
two other popular waterfalls, Parit and Robinson Falls, both located around Tanah Rata. Parit Falls
can be accessed from the main road at a right turning just before Brinchang Town. The Parit Falls
collects at a wide pool that may be used for swimming, but the temperatures can prove to be freezing.
The park is well-developed with a playground, bridges and tiled walkaways. If you follow the trail to the
left, it will lead to another trail which turns up steeply to the right. Parit Falls is accessible from Path 4
behind The Gardens on Persiaran Dayang Endah. Robinson Falls, are located in Tana Ratah. You
can walk a number of jungle trails and one of them, nr 9 or 9A, leads in a short walk to this attractive
waterfall. Robinson Waterfall is accessible from The Gardens on Persiaran Dayang Endah, the path
(Path 9 or 9A) from Tanah Rata and continue to the end of the road. Cross a small bridge on your left
to start the walk. De là, il y a un chemin qui rejoint Boh tea plantation. Bharat Tea plantation. Prendre
le bus de la gare routière, demander au chauffeur de s’arrêter à Bharatea plantation. Y venir tôt le
matin, la lumière pour les photos est fantastique. Passer derrière l’usine, descendre les marches
glissantes, retrouver la piste. La suivre en partant sur la droite jusqu’à une baraque. Prendre à
nouveau à droite, longer le ruisseau qui amène au village. Faire le tour du village. Les gens y sont très
accueillants et hospitaliers.
Brinchang. The town in Brinchang is also famous for its dining opportunities. Due to the high Chinese
population, you can get a wide variety of Chinese dishes but other traditional Malay and Indian food
are available as well. Brinchang Night Market (2): just opposite the police station on Friday and

GUNUNG BRINCHANG – Brinchang Mountain is the second highest mountain in the Cameron
Highlands after Gunung Irau. 2032m (6666 pieds). C’est le sommet le plus haut accessible en voiture
en Malaisie. Le sommet est souvent dans les nuages, alors on peut aussi s’arrêter à mi-chemin et
profiter de la vue sur le sungai tea palas plantation. Road is very winding and narrow. Don’t attempt to
drive if you are not expert in driving in bumpy, slopes with high gradient (those % ?) because you may
need to give ways to oncoming traffics and avoiding potholes. Sungai Palas Estate Road. Panormic
views form the road leading to the top of Gunung Brinchang, the highest road in Peninsular Malaysia
at 6666 ft. Turn left at the guard house on the Sungai Palas Estate road, then left again and drive
carefully as the road is narrow and quite steep. Au départ du sommet il y a le sentier n°1, pas si fac ile,
risque de se perdre.
Orang Asli Village. There are three kinds of “orang asli”. They are known as “Senoi”, “Orang Melayu
Asli” and “Negrito”. Those who are living in Cameron are the “Senoi” and the “Negrito”. The “Senoi”
look exactly like the Malaysians. Those who are darker are the Negrito. In Cameron highland, they
work as a worker on the highland tea estate to earn money. There are many aborigine villages in
Cameron Highlands. The two famous aborigine villages in Cameron Highlands are the aborigine
villages near Villa Dahlia at Tanah Rata and Kampung Pangan Orang Asli Village, near Boh Tea
Estate.
Route depuis Tapah, très belle. On the way from Tapah to the Cameron Highlands it is impossible to
overlook the Iskandar Fall (1). The falls are visible from the road, and there is a big sign, welcoming
the visitor to the Hutan Lipur Lata Iskandar. Lies about 15 km after Tapah along the trunk road to
Cameron Highlands. This majestic waterfall cascades for 25-meters down into a series of rock pools.
Souvenir shops, food stalls. At the top of the main cascade the cemented steps end. There is a
second cascade here, which (of course) is more quiet than the lower one. From the top of the second
cascade, one can look down and see the swirling water cascading down. Deep below bathers are
enjoying the cool water. Then, the final suprise, a small real waterfall with an almost private swimming
pool.

Beserah. Village de pêcheurs. A 7-8 km north of Kuantan, in the state of Pahang, the fishing village of
Beserah is famous for shellcraft items, batik and crafts made from coconuts. Besides its own attractive

Perhaps the main attraction to Penang is the old town district of Georgetown. Here you'll find
examples of colonial era straits architecture. Magnifiques demeures qui jalonnent la Jl Kelawai, juste
après l’intersection avec Jl Burma. Due to the many ethnic groups which settled here from the very
beginning, there are examples of not only Georgian civic buildings, but also Chinese mansions, Indian
temples and Achehnese mosques. The place to start is the original fort constructed by Captain Francis
Light soon after landing on Penang in 1786. Fort Cornwallis isn't much to look at. Only the outer walls,
studded with a few cannons, remain. C’est la + grande forteresse intacte du pays. Dhammi karama

fact walk all the way down (or up if you're really in the mood for a lot of exercise). Admission to the
Bellevue aviary garden is another RM 4. The latest attraction on Penang Hill is the Canopy Walk.

rainforest, the flora and fauna found here is amazing. A large lake on the island is believed to have
magical properties. The water is also great for swimming. A cave called Gua Langsir sits here, home
to thousands of bats, definitely worth an expedition or two. it is 91 meters high and is so named
because of the echo of the wind through the cave. People today claim that thousands of bats live in it
but the local people of yesteryear would not set foot there, not even for all the riches in the world. They
are convinced the cave is home to a female vampire called the langsir, which, after having lured men
to its lair, would suck their bodies dry of blood. No one would go near Gua Langsir, for they believe
that the eerie sounds that come from the depths of the cave are the cries of the banshee and it is
enough to make their blood run cold and their hair stand on end. The island is accessible through a 15
minute boat ride from Kuah Jetty or Pantai Cenang, but plan your trips for a day as there is no
accommodation available.

the second look-out. You may return to Kuala Tahan by the same route.
4. Rapid shooting at upstream Tembeling river. 1-2hr. On part en amont de taman negara. C'est
assez sympa, et on voit souvent des varans (monitor lizard) et parfois des singes (surveillez les
branches qui bougent fort sans raison). De rochers de très jolie couleur. Cette promenade est
marrante si on se fait éclabousser. Demandez au conducteur de la pirogue. Une petite demi-journée.
5. Video show at park office, 1hr, usually held at night.
6. Visit a settlement to see how Orang Asli aborigines from Batek tribe start fire using primitive tools.
1-2 hr. (Expect a strange feeling that the Batek are paid by tour operators to “disney-fied” a villagy
settlement but hey, real ones are deep in the jungle. It will need more than 3D/2N and cost more to go
deeper). 15RM.
6b.Latah berkoh. C'est une promenade en pirogue qui passe dans une jolie petite rivière sous les
frondaisons. Vraiment joli et on a enfin l'impression d'être au milieu de la jungle. On débarque et Upon
arrival, you’ll need to track for about 30 minutes to reach the cascade. qui tient plus du rapide que de
la cascade. On se baigne là. Ne vous laissez pas rebuter par la couleur de l'eau un peu marron et
parfois un peu mousseuse. C'est dû aux matières organiques venant des arbres. une grosse demi
journée. The beautiful Cascades of Latah Berkoh brings an impression of a strong natural Jacuzzi
awaiting you to dip in. In order to get there, you’ll need ride on a 45 minutes cruise along Tahan River.
Be prepared to enjoy the river cruise as you relish with the flora and fauna along the river. On the way
back to Kuala Tahan, you may stop by Kelah Fish Sanctuary, a location which offers viewing
opportunity of fresh water fishes (If the water is clear as during rainy days, it might be muddy).
For those who pay a more and stay a few nights, these excursions may be included ….
7. Some dipping time at Abai waterfall.
8. Night jungle walk to view owls and insects. 1h30. 5RM. The jungle night walk is a good way to
experience night life in the rainforest when the nocturnal animals come out to feed. It's not an
activity to see big animals but rather small ones like insects, spiders, scorpions, snakes and many
others. Préférer cette promenade à la sortie en camion.

Tahan river. 3-4hrs.

lubok simpson, bonne piscine naturelle.
TIP: The next time you walk into a rainforest, look around and try spotting leeches. If you don’t
see any, it means there is no wildlife around to support the appetite of these critters - it’s pure
logic.
Muar : It's a town and port on the south-western coast of West Malaysia. It's popular for its delicious
and inexpensive foods served by food stalls and restaurants. A picturesque town located strategically
on the Muar River. Muar played a role in resisting the Portuguese occupation of Malacca in 1511. In
response to attacks from the Portuguese fleet, the Bentayan fort was built by the Sultan of Malacca to
repel seaborne invasions.
When the Portuguese conquered Melaka in 1511, its Sultan and his entourage had escaped to Muar.
Tourists can enjoy a drive or stroll along tree-lined Jalan Tanjung, which follows the river mouth on the
south side. Along this road, you will see mosques, old colonial houses, government buildings and a
beautiful park. One of the most preferred and famous local delicacy in Muar is known as “Otak – Otak”
This is a mix blends of fish or prawn in various spices, wrapped normally in coconut leaf. There are
two streets in Muar that are more famous for its local food, namely Jalan Haji Abu and Jalan Sulaiman.
A few places to visit:
Grisek Hot Spring - The natural wonder of hot springs can be found in the district of Muar, about
10km from Parit Jawa town. The Grisek hotsprings is more popular with local visitors who believe in
the benefits of the hot mineral waters. The hot spring area has chalet, bathing and parking facilities, a
children's playground and some shops.
Tanjung Emas Park - If you're Muar and looking for a quiet place to lay out the blanket and enjoy
reading a book in the warm morning sunshine, Tanjung Emas recreational park overlooking Muar
River is the place to go. This recreational park has a food court offering local delicacies if you get a
little hungry- try the ikan asam pedas (fish cooked with tamarind sauce and chilli paste) for which this
town is famous. There's a children's playground to keep the little ones amused.
Mosquée Masjid Jamek Sultan Ibrahim. Masjid Jamek Sultan Ibrahim is located along Jalan Petri,
close to mouth of Muar River.
Mosquée Masjid Jamek 2. built in 1999. It was built on the opposite bank of Muar River in Tanjung
Agas. The two mosques formed a spectacular landmark, especially for those who enter Muar from the
river mouth.
MERSING : The Mersing jetty is a short drive away, and provides access to the various islands off the
coast of Mersing: Tioman, Rawa, Sibu, Aur, Pemanggil.. It used to be a sleepy fishing village. There
are still many fishing boats on the river, as well as a local wet market, Wear sandals because the floor
is wet. In Mersing, there are some, but be alert...not the safest of areas actually in the city at night. The
beach in Mersing is not for swimming. It is dirty (plastic bottles, junk), shallow and muddy. The nearest
beach for swim is 15km North in "Air Papan" (2) and Penyabung beach. This will cost you around
RM15.- to get there. In Air Papan it's very relaxing and isolated. The beaches are incredibly beautiful
here.

puisqu'il n'y a ni route ni voiture. It's the largest in a group of 64 volcanic islands. Kampong Tekek is
the most important village on the island. Here is the jetty, coming from Mersing. Near the jetty is a row
of food stalls beside the road.
Because of the absence of roads on Tioman, the only way to reach all the attractions of the island is
by boat. Many operators and resorts offer you the opportunity to see the highlights of Tioman in a oneday round-island tour. Typical stops along the way include:
Asah waterfall just outside of Mukut Village: The highest waterfalls, close to Mukut village. From
the jetty, a short trek through the jungle brings you to one of the most impressive waterfalls on the
island. The pools of cool mountain water are a great place to refresh after the sweaty walk.
Juara waterfall in the hillside behind Juara village.
The rock falls behind Paya village is nothing more than a bubbling river rushing into the lagoon over a
series of boulders, but a peaceful, natural sight nonetheless.
A chance to photograph the twin peaks
Known as the dragon’s horns, Tioman’s famous peaks are an impressive sight at the southern end of
the island and popular with adventurous rock-climbers.
Duty free shopping in Tekek
The island’s main village, Tekek, is where most of the duty-free shops are, selling alcohol, cigarettes
and souvenirs at low prices.
Snorkelling at the Marine Park headquarters
Clouds of brightly coloured fish are in the water around the jetty here, no doubt attracted by the bread
crumbs offered to them by daily visitors.
Other villages
Every village on Tioman has its own character and a stop at one of the other villages for a lunch break
or refreshment lets you experience this.
Renggis Island
Located right in front of the Berjaya Resort, this tiny rocky island has some of the most impressive
coral formations around it and is a popular stop for snorkelling as well as scuba diving.
Round Island tours range from RM 80-120 per person, depending on the starting point, duration and
type of boat used.
Monkey Bay
Monkey Bay is tucked between Salang and Air Batang village on the north of the island. With a
deserted stretch of white sandy beach and crystal clear water, it is no wonder that this is one of
Tioman’s popular attractions. Un vrai délice. You are able to reach this spot from Air Batang or Salang
village (1h) on a pathway that cuts through the jungle, or on one of the round-island or snorkelling trips
arranged by operators on the island. After exploring the waters, stretch your legs on the beach of this
undeveloped bay. Attention aux singes chapardeurs !
JUNGLE TREKKING
The best known, and probably the toughest jungle trek stretches across the middle of the island,
through the hilly terrain and rainforest between the villages of Tekek and Juara. On this 7km, 2-4h
trek you are likely to encounter monkeys, monitor lizards, scores of birds and insects as well as
passing by waterfalls and tall trees that are hundreds of years old. Partir avant 10h de tekek, faire le
trek, profiter de la plage et revenir en seabus qui repart de juara vers 15h
Other popular treks are footpaths, paved in places, that connect the villages of Genting and Paya as
well as Air Batang and Salang (with a stop at Monkey Bay in between). Sentier de Salang à Genting,
longeant la côte, et suit la ligne électrique
MARANG : Joli petit port de pêche. Marché de nuit très coloré. A 17km de Kuala terrenganu.
Pulau Redang : Située à 45 min en bateau de la côte Est du nord de la Malaisie. Accessible depuis
Kuala terengganu, depuis mErang plus précisément et non pas depuis mArang (qui n’est rien d’autre
qu’un port de départ). Droit d’entrée : 5RM. Cette île est une succursale du paradis sur terre. Fast boat
à 09h, 10h, et 13h, 40RM AS. Question prix préférer les perhentians. Redang archipelago comprises 9
islands (Lima Island, Paku Besar Island, Paku Kecil Island, Kerengga Besar Island, Kerengga Kecil
Island, Ekor Tebu Island, Ling Island, Pinang Island and the main Redang Island) that abound with
marvelous marine fishes, turtles and coral reefs that ensure great snorkelling and scuba-diving.
Redang Island which is approximately 7km in length 6km in width, is the largest of all other islands in
the Marine Park and most beautiful of the east-coast islands. Beautiful bays on the eastern side of the
island, including Teluk Dalam, Teluk Kalong and Pasir Panjang. Idéale pour la baignade, et
merveilleuse baignade dans la baie de Teluk dalam.
Pulau kapas : Pulau Kapas means Cotton Island in Malay and this peculiar name is attributed to
the pure white beaches that are the trademark of this island. Accessible depuis mArang. By bus it
will take 30 minutes to come to Marang from Kuala Terengganu and the speedboat will bring in 15
minutes to Pulau Kapas (25RM AR) or to pulau redang. Il y a aussi un slow ferry, 30min pour
15RM AR. The best snorkelling is between Kapas and Gemia Islands on the north western tip of
the island. Other good snorkelling spots are at the southern tip of the island and off the island’s
eastern shore, which can be reached by a footpath through the jungle. You can enjoy the
untouched jungle by crossing the island on one of the footpaths that cut through the greenery. You
can easily do the trek on your own though. The 45 minute trek from the jetty to Kapas View Point is
one of the favourite routes to take: the spectacular view from the top is a well-earned reward for a
sweaty walk.
Pulau Lang Tengah : The small, idyllic island of Lang Tengah lies roughly halfway between Pulau
Redang and Pulau Perhentian, and with only three resorts to choose from, it's a much quieter, less
developed place than its better-known neighbours. It's a hidden gem, with soft white-sand beaches,
clean turquoise waters and reputedly some of the best snorkelling in Malaysia just offshore. Like
Redang, the resorts offer all-inclusive packages, as well as diving courses.
Kuala Terengganu : Kuala Terengganu est la capital de l'état de Terengganu, situee sur un
promontoire a l'embouchure de la Rivière Terengganu et de la Mer de Chine Méridionale. C'est ici,
tout à cote de la rivière (sungai) Terengganu, que siége le Sultan et qu'y est établi son palais (1), au
pied d'une colline, le Bukit Puteri ou la Colline de la Princesse. C'est un état islamiste radical. Les
femmes musulmanes sont bien évidemment couvertes, les petites filles également. Il est très courant
de voir des femmes complètement cachées par leur voile (chaddri), de la tête aux pieds. Kuala
Terengganu is the centre for Malay culture and Heritage. Son marché central propose de nombreux
articles en bambou (même des jogurts au bambou – à tester). Y aller tôt, au bout de Jl Sultanzainal
Abidin, après la poste. 08-16h. A voir : le mausolée royal, le kampong dalam kota avec ses vieilles
maisons malaises, le centre d’artisanat comme le suterasemen center (à 6km au S.) et le chendering

ses jolies maisons aux couleurs vives. Il se situe sur les bords de la Rivière Terengganu tout à cote
marché central, très animé toute la journée. Un autre site des plus intéressants de la ville de
Terengganu est son Musée Negeri terrenganu (3), qui se dit le + grand musée d'Asie du Sud-Est,
intéressant, aussi pour son architecture des plus modernes / traditionnelles. Tout près du Musée, un
immense Parc ou l'on peut voir une multitude de mosquées (4).

fréquentée que genting highlands ou Cameron highlands, réputée pour sa faune et sa flore, idyllique.
On est au paradis des observateurs d’oiseaux. Faisable en bus, mais un peu compliqué (2 bus à
prendre). Le mieux est en voiture (104km de KL, faire le plein à KL avant !). There is a nature
education centre where visitors can learn about the flora and fauna of the area. Belles promenades au
travers de la jungle, et quand il n’y a pas de brouillard, la vue porte très loin. There are eight
signposted trails around Fraser's Hill, although some have been closed at least temporarily after a
well-publicized incident in 2005 when three young boys got lost in the jungle. Watch out for leeches.
Hemmant Trail. An easy 20-minute trail along the north side of the golf course.
Bishop's Trail. Effectively a continuation of the Hemmant Trail, this is a slightly more challenging halfhour track through the jungle. Slippery when wet.
Pine Tree Trail. A challenging 6 kilometer trail up and down hills to the eponymous Pine Tree Hill, and
you'll have to return the way you came to boot. This is a full-day hike that will take 7-8 hours at a
moderate pace.
Maxwell trail est le sentier le + intéressant.
Jeriau Waterfalls, 5 km (30 min drive) from the town centre and then a 15-min walk. The falls are 6
meters high and fall into a shallow pool suitable for bathing. The area is equipped with restrooms and
shelters for picnics. Visitors can also visit Allan’s Water a former reservoir where you can boat and fish.
Another 15 km away from Fraser’s Hill is the Telaga Waterfall, a bigger, more scenic area to picnic.
Bukit Telaga Waterfall is an ideal stopover for those visiting the hill resort. It is only 15 km. away from
Fraser's Hill and 19 km. from Raub town.
Rich with lush greenery and beautiful surroundings, Bukit Telaga Waterfall is known for its turbulent
rapids flowing through rugged rocky areas.
Visitors can also check out other waterfalls near Fraser’s Hills and Raub including Lata Berembun,
Jeram Besu , Lata Jarum and Lata Lembik.

Pasir salak. A 65km d’Ipoh. Village au passé guerrier. Dans le complexe historique, maisons
malaises traditionnelles à décoration merveilleusement sculptée. Pasir Salak is the place where
Malaysia's modern history began, Malaysia's cultural heritage. It's where the spirit of independence
from the British got shape, where democracy was in Malaysia was born and therefore a important
piece of the Malaysian heritage. . I have visited the complex two times and I found it most rewarding.
So let's see what Pasir Salak really is. The complex was build in 1987 in honor to the people who
helped to shape Malaysia as it is now. It is a reminder for the present and future generations of the
sacrifice made by chiefs and warriors of Perak in defending their dignity, customs and religion. The
complex consists of different buildings in traditional Malay style. The Complex is open everyday
(including public holiday) except Friday from 9.00 am to 4.30 pm. Admission for an adult is RM5 and a
child (6-12 years old) is RM3.

towers in Malaysia is the Gunung Tempurung. It is a massive cavern inside Gunung Tempurung
(Tempurung Mountain) standing at 497 metres high. These caves are actually a breathtaking gallery of
stalagmites and stalactites and other amazing rock formations which are superb speleogical wonders
found only in this part of the world. Believed to have existed since early 8000 B.C., Gua Tempurung is
probably the largest natural limestone structure in Malaysia. It comprises of five huge domes with
ceilings resembling coconut shells. Each of these domes have different calcium formations and marble
that exist in differing temperatures and water levels. These caves are located under the limestone hills
and form tunnels that runs from east to west, nearly 1,9km in length. Underground River is called
Sungai Gua Tempurung. The river passage runs about 1,6km through the cave inside Gunung
Tempurung. 9h-17h.

PULAU RAWA : Cocotier, eaux turquoises, sable blanc. Rawa is a private island, fittingly owned by
family of the Sultanate of Johor. All boats and ferries depart from Mersing. The departure time is
dependent on availability of boats, tidal conditions and the size of your group and cost about RM 3545.
Alternatively, ferry services between Mersing and Tioman Island can make a stop at Rawa on your
request. Tickets cost RM 45 each way and ferries leave every one to two hours between 09:30 and
17:30. Pulau Rawa is truly a paradise island. There are many caves for exploration and offshore coral
reefs rich with marine life. Trek de 15min pour rejoindre le sommet de la colline, pour voir l’autre côté
de l’île.
PULAU PANGKOR : Petite île, la seule du coin à avoir des plages propres. Eaux cristallines, mais
pas autant que celles des îles de l’est. Ancien repaire de pirates. Accessible depuis Lumut, ferry
toutes les 30min, 10RM l’AR. Le ferry s’arrête d’abord à Pinang kecil puis à pangkor village, le
village principal. Halte agréable. Une vraie route fait le tour de l’île, afin de pouvoir visiter les petits
villages de pêcheurs with traditional Malaysian houses, en vélo (8RM/jour ou 30RM en taxi). Fort
Kota Belanda (1), hollandais, 1670, restauré en 1970, à Teluk Gudang. It was one of the Dutch
strongholds against pirates and local Malays. The fort was abandoned after it was attacked by a local
warrior. Le fort n’a pas d’intérêt, mais la balade pour y arriver mérite le détour. One of the great places
of interest in Pangkor Island is Pasir Giam beach, which faces the small island of Giam (2). It is only
2km north of Teluk Nipah by road. When the tide is out, you can walk through the shallow waters to
the island but watch for the high tide unless you have a boat. Plages désertes sur la côte ouest, mais
baignade sur la côte est déconseillée, à cause de la pollution. Plage de Teluk Nipah (3), très jolie
avec tous les avantages d’une plage tropicale. En juillet, les tortues viennent pondre sur la plage
Ketapang, entre Nipah et bogak.

TAIPING. On dit de cette ville qu’elle possède les + beaux jardins du pays (taiping lake garden),
mais présente assez peu d’intérêt. Une des + anciennes villes du pays. Son nom signifie « cité de la
paix éternelle ».
