This resort ๐Ÿข๐Ÿ›Œ๐Ÿšฟ๐Ÿšฝ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ง is not new, in fact it’s with quite a number of years since establishment. However, this recent visit & stay vacation was the 1๏ธโƒฃst experience of her ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป


Bringing your furry friend with you on your travelsโ“โ‰๏ธ Learn more here

It’s surrounding with the Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ ‘s largest manmade freshwater lake ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ง (7๏ธโƒฃk acres) named Bukit Merah ๐Ÿž๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ง & approximately 3๏ธโƒฃ-hour drive ๐Ÿš from Kuala Lumpur city & through Bukit Merah toll Exit 150 along the North-South Expressway ๐Ÿ›ฃ


After buffet lunch ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿด@ Lelac Cafe, she ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป went to check-in ๐Ÿ” with her media friend ๐Ÿ‘ญto a standard hotel room ๐Ÿ›Œ๐Ÿšฟ๐Ÿšฝ

A simple, clean yet comfy stay with toiletries available. There is no โŒ iron / hair dryer available in the hotel room ๐Ÿ›Œ

However, no wifi โŒ๐Ÿ“ถ network detection in the hotel room, though the wifi password was printed on the hotel room key ๐Ÿ”‘ ‘s envelope ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Frankly, the hotel rooms are considered quite well maintained ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป since it’s an old resort since its establishment in 1995. More of its hotel room types & room information via ๐ŸŒ http://www.bukitmerahresort.com.my/laketown-hotel

Orang Utan Island ๐ŸŒด๐Ÿ

This island ๐ŸŒด๐Ÿ is formerly know as Pulau Panjang & it started since 22 Feb 2000 with 35 acre area. 15 acres of it has been set aside for this conservation ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š initiative i.e. As an exhibit for rehabilitation endangered species with provision for further expansion for future phases ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š

The Orang Utan i.e. meaning “man ๐Ÿ‘ซ (orang) of the forestย ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ (hutan)” in Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ ‘s national language ~ Bahasa Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พย It exhibits a truly human-like mannerism in many facets of its behavior ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
