1. Day/overnight trip to aboriginal village (Pos Poi/Perjek/Kuala Mu).
These villages charms you with its adrenaline-pumping trails and terrain. The 1 1/2 hour (at most) drive on the bumpy roads takes you deep into the peninsular rainforest, letting your inner thoughts linger at every sight and noise you encounter. Warm up your bodies for a hike up the hills around the aboriginal village after rubbing shoulders with the people and a feast of their specialties.
2. Village tour on bicycle.
One might ponder upon absurdities of a man cycling under the scorching sun nowadays, well in Malaysia to be exact. Don’t be surprised! That’s because Malaysians are not really into tanning the err, already tanned skin. Gear up, head out for a tour around the village and forget not to make a brief stop for a bite of ‘kueh’ (Malay cakes) at the stall.
*Bamboo bikes are also available for rent (subject to availability)
3. Sightseeing in Kuala Kangsar: The Royal Town.
You wouldn’t want to miss the sight of the Royal Town, Kuala Kangsar when you visit Perak. Fans of intricate building designs and architectures are likely to be more psyched up upon the glance of Istana Kenangan and Masjid Ubudiah. Istana Iskandariah, though isn’t accessible to visitors, frown not, you can still have your photographs taken with the palace in the background. Istana Kenangan on the other hand, was built as a temporary mausoleum for the late Duli Yang Maha Mulia Sultan Iskandar Shah and houses some exhibits on the royal family. Be it rainy or sunny days on the weekends, it never stop the visitors from flocking into the farmers market. From kids toys to fresh produce, you can get almost everything including your breakfast.
4. Night prawn fishing and boat ride.
Prawn fishing is fairly popular among locals and international tourists since we don’t get to prawning in our fish pool eh? On that account, you are allowed to be excited on your first catch (we can’t promise anything though) and munch ’em to your hearts content (hypertension patients better be armed). Sail under the moonlight, revel in the sound of woodpeckers’ chiseling and if you are in luck, a glance of the lady in white. It’s all a legend, they say.
5. Batik painting.
One of the most anticipated activities is now no longer just a nebulous dream. Batik or widely known as ‘batek’ is fine art that requires both skills and flair that is translated into a piece of cloth. Rich in colors and a brew of heritage, it’s more than just a cloth. The knowledge of batek painting, being handed down to generations, sees no end. Globally recognized and dazzles as a gift, one should consider expressing their affections in every brush’s stain.
6. Pottery making (labu sayong).
Pottery has been practiced ever since it first discovered in Neolithic period and cherished by art curators and even mediocres. The famous ‘labu sayong’, been used as water pitcher is made of clay and baked at 1040°C for 6 to 8 hours. The traditional way of making ‘labu sayong’ involves using hands to mould the clay into the shape of ‘labu’ on a piece of solid wooden plate. One of the amazing thing about this extraordinary ‘labu sayong’ is that the special local clay is semi permeable porous but yet does not leak stored water and the temperature of water stored in them will drop to as low as 19ºC compared to ambient temperature of 27ºC in hot tropical countries like Malaysia.
7. Traditional body massage.
Unwind the tied knots and relish in tranquility by experiencing the traditional Malay massage performed by our experienced practitioner. A range of our natural elixirs are specially prepared for you to choose from. Regain your energy and get back to your feet feeling nothing but refreshed!
8. ‘Lemang’ and other Malay traditional cuisine making.
On Islamic calendar, marked two major celebrations; Eid Al Fitr and Eid Al Adha. A house without ‘lemang’ is of no celebratory mood, one man claims. ‘Lemang’ is sticky rice cooked with coconut milk in a bamboo stick lined with banana leaves. Goes well with spicy ‘rendang’, one bite leads to another. Try making them from the beginning of the process and salivate when the scent of the ‘lemang’ fill the air.
