Bali, Indonesia – Part 2

Wow, does anyone knows how long had my blog down? Bet not, wasn’t aware that until now. Probably it’s time too for me to do some minor update. The reason being was because the earlier hacker  thingy blocked my earlier post due to his name was there, caused my blog not to be loaded.  Excellent….

Anyway, it’s been a year since my last update. And this part 2 of Bali-Indonesia was already long past, cant remember the details. So just to share some photos I took back then.

Bali, Indonesia – Part I

Was supposedly update my blog happily today but damn, found my blog was hacked! All my blog posts titles were edited. I have to restore back my old database in order to proceed this post. Well, not in good mood to update in details about Bali.

Summarized it, it was a fun trip with gang of bros and sis. 6 days 5 nights stay, which just adequately enough to explore Bali. It should covered 90% of Bali tourism areas. Well, don’t worry if you missed some, I’m pretty sure you’ll revisit Bali someday again. Next visit will not be so hectic as first because it will be more on relaxing tour than first rushing tour.

I’ll post more information on Bali in my next post I guess. About tour itenerary, tour guide recommendation and so on. As I said, not in mood now.

Pulau Besar, Mersing – Johor

Again, wasn’t the real time update. These shots I’m going to upload were taken months ago. It was our company 1st ever TeamBuilding which opened for all level staffs. Well, not sure whether was the first to the company but it was to me. A last minutes invitation from HR, which probably to fill up the void headcount left. Anyway, who cares, it’s a paid  trip afterall.

It was a long journey bus trip from KL to Mersing,Johor. It took nearly 7-8 hours to arrive, start 12am and reached Mersing Jeti at 8.30am, duh… In short, the whole trip was relaxing but boring. Never been to Redang so can’t compare the cleanliness of the beaches, but looks good to me though.

There you go, the snap shots of the Pulau Besar.















One Night in Hatyai

After numerous busy weekends, finally I had a break. A break free without work at Hat Yai. As a Malaysian, if you do not know where Hat Yai was, you should felt ashame of yourself. It is famously located at southern part of our neighbour, Thailand.  Tired of works lately, therefore not going to write an introduction or itenerary of the trip.

Took some photos during the trip, so here you go. It might take sometimes to load, sorry about that. Lazy to create photo slide.

Driving Up Hills

A short yet fun trip to Genting. It was about 2 months ago, 2 days 1 night stay. Sounded rush right? Yeah, a bit rush but literally it was fun. Since it was months ago story, I don’t think I still needed to bring the past back here! Anyway, you can visit Derick’s blog for some others shots at Genting which I didn’t show it here . So just enjoy the photos I took.

Pantai Kerachut – Penang

If you are from Penang, I’m pretty sure you should hear this name occasionally from someone. Yeah, Pantai Kerachut. It actually a national park which interlink a few other beaches like Muka head, monkey beach and so. Exact what beaches are connected, I didn’t pay attention on the list though, but those mentioned are the famaous one.

If you like hiking and beaches, this combo place should suit you well. After finished some sweating hike, you’ll reach to a beach. You could either rent a boat and make an appointment with him for pickup before you start your journey, and wait at the dock after that; Or you could just hike it back to where you start.

The journey should take you about 45mins if you are a relatively fast hiker. For us, it took about 1.5hrs because we entered “Pit Stop” numerous of times… 😀 Stop for photo shooting, stop for drinks, stop for rest and so… It’s not really tough , I feel rather easy though. Compared to Bukit Tukun, Tukun is much tougher. If you really “into” hiking, Pantai Kerachut might not be your “cup of coffee”. Anyway, this place is more suitable for team building and friends gathering. One more thing to add on, “ninja turtles” are available to see. Remember to drop by if you have spare times.

Overally the place is nice and easing for some sweating exercise. But to me is kinda too far. It located somewhere people called it “End of the world”, because from Batu Ferringhi is just straight down  until end of road, you’re there!

The day we went was rainning. To avoid water goes into my camera, I didn’t really shoot many photos. Just some misc shots on our way. Would like to share it to you still.. 😛

Kuala Terengganu II

Yeah, still Kuala Terengganu. Not just you, I’m getting bored of it too, that’s why it took me so long to upload these batch of photos. Don’t worry, it will be the last batch of Kuala Terengganu photos. Nothing much, just some miscellaneous shots I took at Kuala Terengganu & Pulau Kapas.

Pulau Kapas was the only option we could go over from Kuala Terengganu jetty. Actually there was another island we could go which is Pulau Gem, just next to Pulau Kapas. It is the new private island in recent years and just around 800M from Pulau Kapas. Unless you plan to stay overnight at the Gem Island, else it pretty much the same as Pulau Kapas.

I bet you guys must be wonder why didn’t we choose Redang, Lang Tengah or Perhentian Island. Long story, in short, it was FireFlyz to be blamed. Coming out the stupid flight time table, missed all the available boat schedules to those islands. Ain’t too bad to me though, coz i’m not really a Sun lover. So the less exposure under the sun, the better! 😀

By the way, this batch photos do not stand out as previous posts I had, I guess. So, don’t get too excited on these photos yet. In the mean time, why don’t you tell me?

Kuala Terengganu

Where is K.Terengganu? Kuala Terrengganu is located in Terrengganu State and at our east coast of West Malaysia. Confusing? Just go and search google map and locate it yourself. It should be bunch of results listed out as it was like the main entrance for you to reach those famous islands such as Pulau Redang, Pulau Perhentian, Lang Tengah, Pulau Kapas and the latest private island Pulau Gem.

How to go? It can be by all kind of transportation whether by Land, Sea or Air transportations. 

Why to go? If you wanted to go to these mentioned islands, the only route is to go through Kuala Terengganu and reached it’s Jetty. From there on took/rent a boat to the islands. There isn’t any route you can reach these islands unless you have your own private boat.

What to see? I’m not really know what to see in Terrengganu itself beside being the main route to island. Anyhow it does have some famous tourism attractions such as Lake Kenyir, Largest Muzium in SEA,  Floating Mosque and err… that’s all I guess. But these attractions aren’t in town, you need to take taxi out from town to it location. Anyhow it wasn’t in my topic today. I’ll just skip it.

So what actually have in Kuala Terrengganu? See for yourself!

Fire_Flyz
You may book fire flyz flight to K.Terengganu from Penang.

Primula Hotel
A nice and wonderful place to stay if you plan to overnight at Kuala Terengganu. Not believe? See the following pictures.

Primula Hotel Night View
Night View in Primula Hotel. By the way, the swimming pool is nice and clean.

Primula Beach
Beside swimming, you can have some outdoor activities like football, volleyball and basket ball at their private beach.

Moonlit
If you’re not a sporty person, perhaps just some relaxing moment lying on the beach and watching the clear night sky with bright moonlit above!

Primula's morning
If you could wake up early, you might seen this scene as like the picture above.

Sunrise
You may sit here while waiting for the sunrise. Only if you lucky enough to see the sun rise from the sea, else most of the time it covered by thick clouds and you could just see it rise from cloud instead sea!

Pulau Kapas
If all above couldn’t pleased you, perhaps you consider a short trip to nearby island like in this picture, Pulau Kapas.

Critics and comments on the photos are welcomed!

Chiang Mai, Thailand

Please Click On Image for more Photos.

One of the famous tourism and 2nd largest city in Thailand. It located at approx. 700km north from Bangkok, among some of the highest moutains in the country. Don’t worry, I’m not going to repeat what already had in others website found on Internet, for more details or history of Chiang Mai, simply ‘google’ for it, you’ll find it bunch of websites listed.

So what I’m gonna write here is about my tour to Chiang Mai with my buddies, buddies tour instead Chiang Mai tour. Haha… We went on the 22nd March to 25th March, a 4 days 3 nights tour. If you have times or longer leaves available, perhaps you can stay 1 day longer, a 5days 4 nights tour as we missed some places not visit like the famous Long Neck Tribe Village, which it needed 1 full day to travel.

We booked Air Asia free and easy package which cost us approx. RM600 per couple on a round trip flight ticket plus taxes. Whereas I felt sympathy on my another buddy because he had to pay double our price which RM1200 because he booked later than us, but he’s a great buddy because kept his promises just to follow us for that trip. Well done, dude! 😉

On the accomodation, we booked earlier thru internet with a fairly cheaper discounted price. For the same hotel, you got discounted price if go Online, whereas you’ll get higher fixed rate prices if go local. So my advice is, beter search around for a discounted price online before you go over, suggesting you take a visit on this website, it has hotels around the world with customers feedback. You can read on the feedbacks and judge the hotel comfortability and overall rating before you decide on which hotels to stay. It offered best discounted internet rate for various hotels, hassle free and reliable which lessen your headache. Booked and check-in on the day you arrive, easily done. You dont have to carry all your luggages around to find hotels if you have done booking earlier. We choose Royal Lanna Hotel because it located centrally of the famous Night Bazaar (night market) within 5 mins walking distance, whcih easier for the girls shopping.

Take a visit on http://www.asiarooms.com/world-hotel-guide.html

And for the places we visit, I won’t explain it in details. As someone did said, “picture said thousand words”, so i just post some pictures to say it all.

Basically those are the places we visited, but there are a few more places we went but it is impossible for me to upload it all. The rest will leave it to you to explore. In short, it is a great place to visit for a sighseeing or shopping tour. Plan your vacation properly, best time to visit should be at year end where the weather much easing and colder(winter), and also on weekend where the Sunday Market is available. Simply drop me some comments if you need to know more about Chiang Mai (not about history pls, abt the tour only).
