I will be going there this month. It is more than just a "ghost town" laugh.gif. At least you don't see one in Singapore. That place is actually very happening if you care to do some research cool.gif.

Its an old mining town.... got a museum on top of the hill. Nobody there and un-manned......

Town is dead. Got syspension bridge just behind some of the houses there.

On route is the cave temple in the rubber plantation where you have to climb up about 200 meters along a steep incline (which has railings, but steps are uneven and broken)

In 2008, went there at 7am.. The locals told me the main draw is to watch the sunrise climbing the hill which we missed. Unless you want to reach there at 5+am.

Here's some pic of my



Last check they still have tikam tikam, how many of us still remember playing this before we progress to playing 4D.




I think this is call Pandan Fall, on our way back to SG via Segamat.

You have eaten 10 curry puffs, 4 cakes and a tao sar boa.
You have drunk 10 cokes, and a jug of sarsi and I don't know how.
All you do is waddle, when the others run.
Eat a little less, play a little more.
You will find that life is a lot more fun than it was before.

I just came back on Tuesday. Yes Sungei Lembing is a dead town. I suggest spend time at Pandan waterfall instead of going to Lembing town. The waterfall consider one of the best in Msia in my own opinion. Toilet is clean and volume of flow from the water is a lot. Most important it is pretty save and not too deep. I could post some photos sometime later tomorrow.

My family just got back from the Kuantan/Terengganu, stayed at Swiss Garden on the way back. We were not able to exhaust the room voucher we have purchased earlier at a travel fair in Singapore, as we have no plan to travel to Kuantan again before end of May 2010, we are selling the room voucher at discounted prices. Pls PM me if you are keen. Voucher is transferable and exchangeable for 1 x Garden View Room at Swiss Garden Resort & Spa at Kuantan. It comes with 2 breakfast and purchased for RM216.20 Nett (ie. RM188++).

Hi all,

This is PART I

It was unfortunate that it was raining throughout my stay at Sungai Lembing. March is usually an ideal month to visit mellow.gif . I've attempted the Bukit Paranonma, didn't catch the sunrise due to the rain. Glad that my small boy could walked by himself to the top. By the time we came down, we were soaked laugh.gif. If you have a weak heart, please don't try the hill sleep.gif , even though they have some stairs for you along the way.
I don't have photos on the hill, since it was so dark and rainy. It was very misty, foggy and cloudy, machiam walking on air biggrin.gif.

I have some photos share with guys, not many shots without the wife and kids faces tongue.gif.

Chempedak Bay, Kuantan
Supposedly one of the best beaches in West Malaysia. They have KFC and Macdonald here. Some popular makan stalls are here too though I didn't try any.







Gua Charas, Kuantan
The hype is about the sleeping Buddha found within a big cave of a mountain. Very dark inside. RM2 for parking.

From far...






leaving...

Ok, Sungai Lembing town, a place that I will come again if not because of the lousy weather this time:

The big old tree that you always see it in the Sungai Lembing web search:



The one and only petrol station. can pump.



Crossing the wooden bridge:



River view:



Road condition, not too bad for my sedan:

Hi all

This is PART 4

The Crystal House, situated right at the end of the town. It is a private house, run by a 69years-old Uncle (He looks like 50 to me). He has house load of private collection. A former tin miner now retired.

Everything about the Crystal House and the Old man are found on this wall:







He told me the left is the copper Ore and the right one is the Tin Ore:



He also dug a tunnel beyond his yard to simulate the tin mine tunnel:





To enter his house, he charged RM2 for Adult and RM1 for kid.

Regards,

Hi all,

This is PART 5

Now, about the place I stayed. This is the newest(about 4 months old), most modern chalet you can find in Sungai Lembing Town. IMHO, The rest no need to try. The catch is there is no internet & no TV. The Owner, Mr. Hon is very friendly. Bring your own portable dvd player with screen to kill the night laugh.gif.

Coming in to chalet:


The hut is where the hotel reception is. There is a common TV. You can cook your own food using the kitchen. Refill water and etc.




The hut behind is where I stayed:


For more information about the chalet:

Lembing Riverview Resort

Hi all,

This is PART 6

Now about food sad.gif . Food has never been a major agenda for me in road trips. I think one of the best food that I tried in Kuantan town is this one:

Hai Tian Restaurant

I took claypot Groupe, Fried Kangkong & salted eggs Crab, tea, rice and only come up to RM 63.

For food in Sungai Lembing?
I'm puzzled about the hype about Hoover Restaurant in Sungai Lembing town. My verdict is there is probably no better food in this town hence the popularity of Hoover. Perhaps, I didn't know what to order???:



If must try, this is the better one. Mango fried fish. I order the following dishes:

Mango fried fish, Sweet and sour pork, claypot Tou fu, 2 cans of soft drink, pot of tea and rice for RM40.



I couldn't make it to the famous place where they will roast the whole pig in town. But Mr. Hon from Lembing Resort helped me to buy the roasted pork. Solid!!! die die must try. RM18 for 1/2 kg. Sorry, I was busy eating and forgot about the camera laugh.gif.

Regards,

Hi all,

This is PART 7

This Hakka Clan Building is pretty much the center piece of the town:


Opposite is the Hawker Food store and wet market (open 1st half of the day). There are few popular food stalls and this is one of them that I find not bad happy.gif :



I bought food like Hor Fun and tomato sauce noodles from the next stall. They are no good wacko.gif .

Behind this market is where you can find the Hoover Restaurant (operating from 7pm onwards. Go there early if not have to queue). Further away is this school:



From this school, you will see a steep road where it will lead you to the hill entrance on the left hand side.

For more solid picture introduction about Sungai Lembing, see here:

Sungai lembing

One more:

Sungai Lembing

Thats all.

Thanks for watching. I've missed a few things due to bad weather, hopefully the next trip will be more fruitful.

Regards,

Very rustic. Brings back fond memories of the yesteryears at my grandparent's place. Worth considering to let my kids experience kampong living.

Was about to ask about meals, but you've just shared. Thanks.

Food-wise, anything to share?


I went there with the objective of getting my kids expose to Kampung living. My girl was making hell lots of noises along way. Especially the part of climbing the Lembing hill, where all were drenched and soaked! laugh.gif

Kids these days are really spolit laj dry.gif .

I doubt Lembing is a place for nice food. In fact, I find myself lucky to bring along cup noodles. The Lembing Riverview Resort can cater for cooked dinner provided you have a group. I didn't try the smaller kopi tiam around the town since Hoover Restaurant (so-called the best one) already standard not as good.
