Ipoh Pigi - The Places

Panda and I went jalan-jalan on the third day before we came back to KL. We only managed to visit two places in Ipoh. The Japanese Garden and the Gunung Lang Recreation Park.

With the help of the navigator, locating the Japanese Garden was easy. This garden was listed in many tour packages as a must stop place. Since Panda had not been there too, so we decided to check it out. But to our dismay, it's a garden smaller then my housing area's playground. With only a few Japanese representative structures, the garden does not really look like a Japanese garden at all.


It took us a mere 5 minutes to make a round, including snapping some pictures. We found that snapping close ups were actually more fun then walking around the garden.


Disappointed, we decided to visit the Gunung Lang Recreation Park instead.

The park was quiet when we arrived, with crowd fewer then 10 people.

This park offers very nice view and was pretty peaceful and calm. There was a beautiful lake, and was told that there's a garden across the lake. And we got to take a boat to reach there. RM3 per person for a round trip.



We were told by the boatmen that there're some giant fish in the pond, as big as the size of a full grown adult human. Gosh....

There stood a tall tower, just by the lake. And from the top of the tower, one can view the whole garden and the beautiful lake. Just breathtaking!


The garden was filled with lushes of trees, beautiful landscapes and beautiful flowers.

And there were a few huts available for rest. We took the opportunity to snap some interesting portraits. Here's an example.

Being a 'Duta Marrybrown', I noticed that Ipoh town itself contained minimum of three MB outlets. This one is in the Ipoh Parade.

Since Panda would like to check out his newly bought apartment in KL, I was more then delighted to offer him a ride. A companion for the long journey drive was more then welcome. We headed back to the hotel. Had a quick shower before checking out. Then we hit the road. Panda was so tired that he dosed off soon after the journey started.

We reached KL in 3 hours and 30 minutes, with a stop at Tapah R&R for lunch and (Panda's) prayer. That's the end of my Ipoh visit.
