|The floating chalets 海上度假屋|
After Gua Tempurung, we headed north towards Kuala Sepetang, a fishing village near Taiping. Kuala Sepetang was formerly called Port Weld, the first port of Malaya where the first Malayan railway was built.
At Kuala Sepetang, we boarded a fishing boat to the floating chalet which was about half an hour boat ride away.
The floating chalet was built about four years ago. It has six rooms catering for about 50 pax and equipped with basic facilities like bathrooms, toilets and fans.
The meals provided were fantastic ... seafood, seafood and seafood!
Members enjoyed themselves by playing mahjong, card games and karaoke.
We were lucky to see dolphins the next morning as we were leaving for Kuala Sepetang.
After a visit to Taiping Zoo, we had lunch at a hawker center with almost hundred stalls selling delicious local food, very delicious local food.
That ended our 2day/1 night outing and we reached home at about 8:30 pm.
