7 IDEAS FOR A ROYAL TOUR OF PEKAN, PAHANG

Pahang is the largest state in Peninsular Malaysia, and has vast tourism assets including a national park, the highest mountain in the peninsular (Mount Tahan), beautiful islands, hill-top resorts, and beautiful beaches.

Those familiar with Pahang, also known as the “Abode of Tranquility”, may have already visited its many popular tourist spots such as Genting Highlands, Tioman Island, and the Pahang National Park. However, there is a little known town that sits by the great Pahang River that also deserves special mention (and further explorations).

Pekan used to be the command centre and capital city of Pahang in the late 19th century. Today, it is known as a royal town and home to the Pahang Sultanate – those who visit will definitely feel its tranquil atmosphere and even get to enjoy some royal “treatments”!

Kick off a royal tour of Pekan with the following suggestions:

Puding DiRaja

There’s nothing better to start your explorations of this royal town than with a royal dessert! Puding DiRaja or Royal Pudding was said to have been created and served to the Pahang royal household. So popular was this treat, that it is now available even in Kuala Lumpur and perhaps other parts of Malaysia, although, the best is still to be had here in Pekan.

So what is it exactly? It is a medley of bananas, prunes, candied cherries, cashew nuts and what’s called jala emas (fine threads of egg yolk prepared in syrup), and served with a milky custard poured all over it. It is a complete dessert that tantalizes all the senses of your tastebuds – there’s the crunch from the nuts, the sweetness from the various fruits, the slight tartness from the prunes, the light texture of the egg yolk threads, and the smooth custardy liquid that slips past your throat.

Of course, Pekan in also known for other mouth-watering delights. If you have a chance – and room left in your tummy – dig into the Murtabak Makassar, which we hear is also a hit with royalty and local politicians alike! In fact, they say you simply can’t leave Pekan without tasting the Murtabak Makassar.

Essentially, it is a type of savoury pancake made of layers of minced beef or chicken filling, unique blend of spices, pastry and eggs. Best eaten dipped in pickled onions! Sounds yummy to us!

Royal Pahang Silk Weaving Centre

If you have a thing for fabrics, then you must acquire the Pahang silk as part of your collection! It is a collector’s item and would make a wonderful heirloom piece to be passed down from one generation to another.

Pekan is home of the “kain tenun” and in fact, some of the finest woven fabrics in this region comes from this great silk weaving centre. So fine is its craftsmanship that it was once appointed the exclusive makers of the Pahang royal garments. A little bit of trivia here: Pahang silk was the fabric of choice for the King and Queen during their coronation ceremony in 2019!

Today, the centre is a great place to learn about the history of Pahang’s woven silk, see a live demonstration of silk weaving and even purchase the fabric for yourself.

Sultan Abdullah Mosque Museum

A trip to Pekan can be quite educational indeed. Just make a visit to the Sultan Abdullah Mosque Museum and you will be thoroughly enlightened!

The Sultan Abdullah Mosque was built in 1929 and was the place locals congregated for their Friday prayers. It remained the key meeting place for religious services until 1976 when a newer mosque was built to serve the community.

Thereafter, the Sultan Abdullah Mosque was abandoned for some time until recently when it underwent a massive three-year reconstruction work to become the first mosque-turned-museum in the country.

Visitors to the mosque museum will be able to learn about Islamic history and art with unique exhibits of the Islamic world, complemented by state-of-the-art touch screens and interesting narratives of the artefacts on display. The graceful arches, the majestic domes and minarets and all-white architecture make the mosque look quite stunning, almost like a mini Taj Mahal in little Pekan!

Sultan Abu Bakar Museum

If you think museums are stuffy places full of dusty exhibits, then this museum will certainly have you change your mind! With all the wonderful artefacts and the creative presentation of all the exhibits, we didn’t feel like we were in a museum at all. On the contrary, it certainly felt like we were in a well-curated art gallery with great storytelling of our history!

Photo credit: http://www.pahangtourism.org.my/

Pekan’s museum of note, the Sultan Abu Bakar Museum, was, in turns, a British government officer’s residence, before it became an army barrack, a palace, and finally a museum.

The museum complex houses five galleries: The Keris Gallery; History of Pahang and The Malay Sultanate Gallery; The Islamic Art Gallery; The Ceramics Gallery; and The Archaeology Gallery. Depending on your interest, you can admire weapons like the Sundang (a double edge Bugis sword) or the Sikin (keris with short blades), take a closer look at porcelains and ceramics from China and Japan, or dive into the Metal Age by browsing through tools, artefacts, and skeletal remains.

The entire museum has been curated to provide an immersive experience with a selection of unique artefacts, insightful storytelling, thoughtful layout and touch screen information boards. Even the front yard has been turned into a kind of artistic gallery with sculptures of horses, elephants and other animals on the grass.

Black Water Jewel

The mountains and jungles of Pahang are very popular tourist attractions, however, many may not know that Pahang also has beautiful and biodiverse peat swamp forests that stretch over 160,000 hectares! It is home to 53 species of mammals and more than 200 birds, including eight species of hornbills.

One of the peat swamp forests of note lies in Pekan, where the Bebar River lies. It is protected as a conservation area, but recently, has been promoted as a tourist attraction. It is called the Black Water Jewel due to the dark brown or black waters – a natural colouration which is caused by the high content of organic matter – and the fact that it is the habitat for a diverse array of animals.

Photo credit: https://www.facebook.com/lensapekanofficial/

Birdwatching activities and river cruising on kayaks are recommended here to explore the natural beauty, flora and fauna of the river. A three-hour cruise can be arranged from Runchang to Nenasi in Pekan. Throughout the journey, tourists have the chance to see unique animals, including the fully-protected oriental small-clawed otter and dusky leaf monkeys. A visit to the orang asli village can be arranged as well.

Meow Island

If you are a cat lover, you will enjoy a visit to Pulau Kucing, affectionately called Meow Island by the locals. It is a privately-run sanctuary for cats also known as the Dato’ Shamsiah Cat Shelter Park.

Photo credit: https://www.facebook.com/MeowIslandMalaysia/

There are more than 60 rescued cats, some ducks, geese, goats and dogs, too, who all roam freely and lead comfortable lives, thanks to the care provided by the owners and occasional volunteers. Over the years, volunteers have built quirky and colourful cat shelters here, and helped out tending to the sick animals, feeding them as well as beautifying the landscape – all in the name of providing a safe sanctuary for these felines.

The shelter also receives the support from the Pahang Veterinary Department, who conducts monthly health checkups on the feline residents of the island.

Here, you can pet and play with the animals, or do some volunteer work such as cleaning, building and repairing the cat shelters, or contribute donations should you feel like it.

Best motorbike routes in Malaysia

By Vishnu Krishnan

Throttle heads, gun your engines because we’re taking you across the best and most scenic bike routes in Malaysia.

Malaysia, despite being a small country, has thousands of kilometers of paved roads that meander and criss-cross through small towns, cities, rural areas, coastal roads and majestic mountainous and forested regions.

Let’s Go!

A useful map for plotting the first leg!

(Source: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/6040239)

 Starting in Kuala Lumpur, head north on the Gombak MRR2 highway and cut off at the Genting Highlands exit. You will know you are on the right path if you bypass the large golden statue of Murugan on your left at Batu Caves. If you’d like to make a pit stop here and check out the marvellous Batu Caves Hindu temple, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

As you ride up the Kuala Lumpur – Karak Expressway towards the foothills of the highlands, this is where the fun really begins. Once you pass the Genting Sempah checkpoint (they have lovely local food to sample and is the last major gas station for the stretch) the gradient will get serious and the temperature drops.

Near the summit of Genting, make sure you check out the Chin Swee Caves Temple filled with pagodas and Taoist motifs that is best seen at night when the red lanterns are lit.

At the peak you will reach the Hotel-Casino complexes. From here you, cruise back down to the Bentong exit. Beware of the winding roads, slippery gravel and mist. The Bentong trail is a beautiful mountain road surrounded by lush forests and wildlife. One major attraction here is the Sungai Chilling waterfall.

Follow the gorgeous mountain road all the way up to Fraser’s Hill which is known for its scenic, rolling green hills and chilly weather. If you aren’t done with the climbing yet, jump on the Ringlet — Sungai Koyan Highway or Route 102 for another 186km to the even more beautiful

Cameron Highlands. Strawberries and tea anyone?

Next, move further north to one of the most scenic routes in the country, the Gerik or East-West Highway. Starting at exit A171 or the town of Gerik, this 128km pilgrimage is a must for all avid bikers. Along the way to the small town of Jeli, you will go through a mountain trail with soft gradients and smooth curves. If you are lucky, you may spot wild elephants.

Our pachyderm friends can sometimes be seen on the Gerik Highway!

From Jeli, travel on Route 4 via the East West Highway to Kota Bharu to commence the longest stretch of the journey, the Kota Bharu to Rompin coastal road.

While you are in Kota Bharu be sure to sample some of the scrumptious local delights such as Nasi Kerabu.

From Kota Bharu, ride 490km south along the E8 via the East Coast Expressway to Rompin. Along this path, you’ll see dozens of fishing villages, small coastal Kampongs, paddy fields and of course the South China Sea. Be mindful of rainy season as the East coast can be treacherous between October and March.

The ride itself is generally tame and relaxing, but there’s much to see and check out along the way, especially through the Terengganu coast which is full of seafood stops.

The scenery along the coast is amazing on E8!

Once you reach the forested region of Rompin and stay the night on the beach, we’ll end the journey with a 292km cruise back to KL via Route 11. These roads are well maintained and provide a smooth journey returning home.

My Malaysia

By Lloyd Green

I sit here on the plane leaving Malaysia after eight months. An experience quite unlike any I have ever encountered. Malaysia is a country where the more you invest, the more you get out of it. You could be forgiven for thinking Malaysia is embodied by KL’s global reputation — its bright lights, shopping malls, bustling nightlife and iconic Petronas Twin Towers showcasing an opulence craved by many tourists — as well as pristine island getaways such as Langkawi and the Perhentian Islands.

But if you have ever had the chance to peer beyond its veneer, you will find a land of great beauty and a population eager to share it with you. This is where the real Malaysia lies and a world in which I’ve had the privilege to step into. You’ll enter one world and exit another taking with you snippets of many cultures that will not only shape your memories but also your relationships.

My Msia 1

The view from one of the more secluded areas at Genting Highlands

Much of my adventure here is owed to the great local friends I have made. They have afforded me an authentic experience not often chronicled in your local tour guides: Guest at an Indian wedding in Klang; life as a local at Orang Asli kampungs in the jungle near Gua Musang and Raub; a road trip to Pangkor; KL’s burgeoning comedy scene; a guided tour of the famed Kacang Putih industry in Ipoh; hiking around the intriguing Genting Highlands; celebrating Deepavali with Indian families in Klang; KL’s underground punk rock scene; teaching English in remote and rural communities; celebrating Christmas in the Portuguese Settlement in Malacca; adventures to Peninsular Malaysia’s most stunning waterfalls and hikes including Chilling Falls and Gunang Tahan; picking rambutans and bananas at plantations in the jungle; witnessing Iban tribal ceremonies in Sarawak; staying on a boat house in the Royal Belum National Park as well as tasting local delicacies such as the best fish noodle soup in Petaling Jaya and homemade Indian curries in Brickfields and Klang.

My Msia 2

You can hire a boat house and enjoy the tranquil Royal Belum National Park

That’s not to say Malaysia’s main attractions are unworthy of your presence — the tourist trail in Malaysia is reliable and growing stronger all the time. In the economic hub of Kuala Lumpur, flavours and colour of India, China and Malay locals float inconspicuously, adding great contrast and history to this modern megacity with landmarks such as Batu Caves, Bukit Bintang and KLCC ensuring thousands continue to flock there.

Venture north to George Town in Penang and Ipoh for a romantic cocktail of art, architecture and colonial influences with night markets, Chinese hawker stalls in Batu Ferringhi, the original Old Town White Coffee in Ipoh and the emergence of urban street art in both places giving reason for tourism to thrive.

The chance to live and look after Orangutans as well as the quest of climbing Malaysia’s highest peak — Mount Kinabalu — will always ensure people go to Sabah and the magic of the Rainforest World Music Festival is a beacon for Sarawak tourism each year. And of course if island hopping and diving is your thing, then you’ll fall in love with places such as Sipadan, Mabul, Kapalai, Layang Layang and Lankayan.

Malaysia has no doubt won a special place in my heart and I urge other travellers, tourists and expatriates to immerse yourself in the culture and let Malaysia sweep you off your feet. You will never regret it.

Wonderful Malaysia

Traveling with kids in Malaysia

Traveling to Southeast Asia with children is not utterly advertised. However, many holidays in segment are ideally suitable for children. Always check previously to establish if a certain orderly outing is age appropriate. Visitors of Wonderful Malaysia mostly ask a doubt if it is probable – and if it is correct – to transport to Malaysia with tiny children. Looking customarily during all fun attractions in a collateral city of Kuala Lumpur, it is transparent that a answer is ‘Yes’. However, as parents, we do need to take certain things into comment that we do not have to cruise about in non-tropical countries. Malaysia is a illusory nation for children. There is an outrageous movement and so there is always something to do. The kids will not get wearied that simply in this country.

Great things to do in Kuala Lumpur

Berjaya Times Square Theme Park

kids-travels-berjaya-times-square-theme-park

In each city in Malaysia, there are a few large selling malls and since they also offer as a amicable assembly indicate for a locals (also kids), we will mostly find many fun attractions within a malls. Each mall has a cinema and a large bowling alley. For example, a Berjaya Times Square mall has a bowling alley – Ampang Superbowl – with a whopping 48 lanes. However, a selling mall is generally – universe – famous due to a indoor Berjaya Times Square Theme Park, where a drum coaster with loops thunders past a railings of a balconies of a several levels.

One of a biggest (and many hectic) kids’ bliss in Malaysia is about an hour’s expostulate from Kuala Lumpur. Genting Highlands is an party city with many attractions (including countless casinos) and with a outrageous kids’ thesis park. A large advantage of this thesis park is a poise of a highlands; a probable waste are a crowds. We had never seen so many families with kids in one place. The thesis is now sealed for renovations and approaching to open in 2016 as a world’s initial Twentieth Century Fox Theme Park.

Kuala Lumpur Bird Park

Within a pleasing Lake Gardens, a biggest park in Kuala Lumpur, we can find a renouned KL Bird Park. Here we can see thousands of birds.

KidZania

kids-travels-kidzania-kuala-lumpur

If we are roving with immature children and are looking for a fun day out in Kuala Lumpur, we should cruise KidZania; an indoor family educational and party core that offers an interactive training and party knowledge for kids in a kid-sized city to broach a first-of-its-kind edutainment fun. The KidZania knowledge is about real-life experiences, empowering, moving and educating kids by role-play. It is located circuitously a good selling mall, so we can mix this with some good selling afterwards.

Adventure trips with kids

Apart from a large cities, we also have many pleasing attractions that are equally pleasing for children and adults.

There is adequate to do on a Malaysian peninsula. Visiting a pleasing National Park Taman Negara is positively a prominence of your trip; nonetheless we will mark few large animals, there are lots of smaller ones, birds and insects. The longboat outing to a inlet haven on a possess will be favourite by a children. The highlands are also good as a change (it is a lot cooler and we can go for poetic walks). Especially renouned are a Cameron Highlands, where your kids can also revisit one of many tea plantations.

kids-travels-cameron-highlands

The islands of Langkawi and Penang can also be visited with children, customarily visiting these islands is an glorious culmination of a debate orderly by a transport agency.

At a Oriental Village during Langkawi Island there is an outrageous wire automobile – Panorama Langkawi – that takes we to a tip of a towering to see a pleasing breathtaking perspective of a island. Langkawi has countless other good attractions that your kids will love.

kids-travels-panorama-langkawi

Penang has a pleasing fruit plantation and a pleasing moth garden. There are utterly a few good temples and countless other sights. The night marketplace in a tiny coastal city Batu Feringghi is also good fun for kids.

If we wish to revisit a best dive and snorkel islands during a dry deteriorate – Apr until October, afterwards we should transport to easterly seashore islands like Perhentian, Redang, Kapas or Tioman. You can snorkel, float and even dive together with a children. Besides many pleasing fish species, there is a large possibility we can float with outrageous turtles (especially abounding in a seas around Perhentian Island).

kids-travels-perhentian-island

Kuala Gandah is a tiny encampment only a few hours divided from a collateral Kuala Lumpur, where we will find an elephant sanctuary. You can feed and rinse a elephants, that is nonetheless another good knowledge for a kids (please do not float on a behind of elephants as they weren’t built for that). Also circuitously Kuala Lumpur is a tiny encampment of Kuala Selangor. Here we can revisit a firefly park (in a evenings) and declare millions of fireflies (lightning bugs) once it is dark.

In Borneo we can for instance simply learn a jungle (basic level). You will select an easy to strech and permitted inlet park instead of a unequivocally tough core jungle trips. A revisit to one of a normal inland people will also be noted for a kids. In a northeast of Borneo (close to Sandakan) we can also revisit Sepilok, a orangutan reserve.

There are also several other attractions, such as a humongous Gomantong bat cave, Turtle Island where we can observe turtles and a extraordinary Kinabatangan stream (3 to 4 hours’ expostulate from Sandakan); where we can see elephants, orangutans, beak monkeys, crocodiles and many other kinds of animals and birds. A loyal journey for children!

kids-travels-kinabatangan-river

If your kids adore thesis parks, we should cruise a revisit to Johor Bahru in a south of Malaysia circuitously Singapore. Here we have Legoland Malaysia; with over 40 rides, shows and attractions. Highlight is Miniland; where over 30 million bricks of lego where used to reconstruct countless Asian landmarks.

kids-travels-legoland-malaysia

All in all there is so many to do with children on debate by Malaysia. Apart from all these outrageous attractions, there are mostly also tiny activities that will be of additional fun for a kids. The locals are always unequivocally good and honeyed with children. They will mostly be marred and will get distant some-more courtesy than they need.

A pleasing outline of a unapproachable primogenitor with children

Our kids trafficked with us for a integrate of months, they spent a prolonged time in airplanes and buses though still were easy to handle. Most travelers are astounded when they comprehend that we can still go backpacking once we have kids. Our kids speak to everybody and get a lot of courtesy in return. Observing things with a kids gives we another perspective on a country, since they will notice totally opposite things than you. Children’s morality … A new universe opens up. And if they cry from time to time…it doesn’t matter. Give them some courtesy and they are glorious again. For years a kids have behaved so good on a plane. It is a biggest knowledge in their lives. And since do we travel….because as parents, we suffer it. You wish something some-more than Center Parcs, European beaches or similar. And kids like everything…So, we transport since as an adult we like it, we are doing it for yourself. In a process, we try and make it fun for a children too and we classify some activities that they unequivocally like. So, people with kids, keep flying!!!! Everyone has been immature and has cried before. No reason to skip out on these good adventures…

Malaysia is a protected country

Malaysia is an unusually protected country, though order of ride is not to do or commence any crazy things (the ones that we would also equivocate in your possess country). Driving in Malaysia is protected too, highways are mostly in glorious conditions. Roads in internal towns competence force we to expostulate slowly. Self-drives are utterly renouned during a peninsula.

Protect yourself and your children

You should always be good prepared (for instance during day trips): take adequate water, adequate DEET to strengthen yourself opposite mosquitoes, Dengue does start a lot and it is not pleasing (read: life threatening!). If your family alloy advises malaria treatment, afterwards go forward with it. Only in a few regions in Malaysia there is a risk of Malaria. If we do not like Malaria diagnosis for your children (for instance since they are too immature for it), only equivocate those areas.

It is also critical that we and your children are good supportive in allege per a pleasing regions. Apart from a critical protection, we should also lift object shade wherever we go. Adults customarily get sunburn within a hour, children are mostly a lot some-more sensitive. You can buy object shade in Malaysia too.

Visit Malaysia 2014

2014 will be an critical year for Malaysia, as it has been branded ‘Visit Malaysia 2014‘. During this year there will be many events to applaud Malaysia’s tourism achievements and potential. Many events are also good for kids, so if we are formulation a outing to this smashing country, make certain we do so in 2014.

Have fun in Malaysia.
