LEARN FROM JAPANESE HOSPITALITY

During my recent visit to Kyoto, Mt. Fuji and Tokyo, I find the rural hotels and resorts very gentle and humble.

Their staff including the owner of these resorts, cooks, hotel staff, will line up and wave Malaysian flags to send us off. Give us a very good impression. Malaysian resorts should try and follow as well.

Terra’s Tree House

Terra’s Tree House is an indigenous-themed budget hotel hidden deep in the rainforest surroundings of Brinchang, near the farmland area of Sungai Mensun.

Getting to Terra’s Tree House requires a 4 wheel drive off-road journey for 4 km. The journey may take up to half an hour drive passing through numbers of farms and orchards, via a very narrow and bumpy trail.  Guests will need to hike on a 100-meter wood-tiled track through the forest before reaching the actual site.

Accommodation is provided in thatched huts of authentic Orang Asli (Aborigine) architecture, composed of bamboo, rattan and palm leaves. Each tree house is perched on stilts for a view of the jungle canopy, but come with lighting and attached bathroom. Finally, organic food is provided from the hotel’s farm for guests to cook themselves breakfast and dinner.

That’s why guests appreciate Terra’s Tree House even more! Not only do they practice biodynamic farming, the people who run it are actively involved in the conservation of Cameron Highlands. We learned that the owner, Ng spent a year to conceptualise the design of the place. Actual construction took another 1.5 years without the use of any heavy machinery, not even for leveling! They wanted to preserve this wonderful Mother Nature!

What you see at Terra’s Tree House is what the Orang Asli (indigenous people) built with their own hands. The kitchen is well equipped with ingredients from Terra’s bio-dynamic farm and homegrown vegetables from just 200m away.

All meals provided are vegetarian. You could bring your own food but make sure that it’s halal and preferably sans meat. Being in the jungle means that anything with meat attracts wild animals at night. Not fun. For additional food (e.g. yam or corn for BBQ), bring your own or make an early special request to the staff.

10 REASONS WHY TERMINAL KLIA2 IS A TRAVELLER’S DREAM

If you are flying into or out of Terminal klia2 (Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2), you’d be forgiven for thinking that you have landed in a shopping mall rather than an airport. That’s because Terminal klia2, currently the world’s largest terminal serving low-cost carriers, has an airport-within-a-mall concept. Everything about it caters to savvy travellers who are looking for that single-stop facility to get all their needs met upon departure or arrival.

To get your bearings right, note that Terminal klia2 is located about 50 minutes by car from downtown Kuala Lumpur, the capital city of Malaysia. If traveling via the KLIA Ekspress, it is just 33 minutes.  It is situated about 2 km away (or between 4 and 10 minutes away depending on mode of transport) from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).

Terminal klia2 consists of [email protected] Mall, the shopping mall; the Main Terminal building on the landside where the arrival and departure halls are located, along with the check-in counters and security and immigrations; and the airside of the terminal where the departure and arrival gates are located.

Overwhelmed? Don’t be…read on to see our favourite picks of outlets and services within Terminal klia2 that will make your trip here smooth and breezy.
