3D2N Trip - Bagan Datuk and Teluk Intan

Don’t know where to go over the weekend? Well… lemme share with you places you can go (instagrammable too) for a weekend or 3D2N that is within 2-3 hours drive from KL. You won’t regret it.

Teluk Intan
1. Pulau Bangau

Pulau Bangau experience was one in a million. Pulau Bangau or Bangau Island is not meant for us to visit, the highlight of Pulau Bangau is to capture the majestic egrets flying home in V-formation, some fly high and some slightly above the water. Seeing hundreds of them flying at dusk is certainly a wondrous moment. It is said that the island is home to more than 20,000 birds, including 10 species of herons and egrets. Don’t think flying a drone at this time is safe though.

2. Teluk Intan Heritage Trail

The Teluk Intan Heritage Trail (you need drive around for this, not doable on foot) that I partake is the standard historical sites that what we normally see and experience but the river cruise heritage trail (Yup! RIVER) is simply delightful, it was a heritage trail + eco-tourism combined therefore I highly encourage you guys to give a try. Places that you will be covering are Old Police Station/Central Station, Post Office, Hongkong and Shanghai Bank Building, Old Court House, Church of St Luke the Evangelist, Madrasah Al-Ihsaniah, Hock Soon Keong Temple and Leaning Tower of Teluk Intan.

3. Ladang MOCCIS

This place is suitable for family and friends in my opinion, ativities around the complex is suitable for family day, teambuilding and gathering among friends for barbecue session. If you guys are wondering what type of activities available here, there are plenty and you can do own tele-match game as well at the open space. You can do the normal tele-match activities couple with kayak race, ATV race, cycling race or perhaps do an Amazing Race type of game and include fishing and cooking the fish as one of the task.

Bangan Datuk
4. Sunflower Garden

Instgrammable spots are everywhere (the favourite for you Gen Y and after), from the Staircase to Heaven to the Rattan Swing Chair and the Transparent Swing Chair, Swing, Heart-shape frame and etc. You name it, they have it (well, most of it lah). Aside from this, it is nearer and easier to reach than the one in Lopburi AND it is definitely cheaper, a roadtrip with friends/family over the weekend is a great idea to ponder upon.  

5. Sky Mirror

The boat ride took around 30mins or so from the jetty, before you know it, you’ll be at the Sky Mirror. According to the operator, there are a few spots that gives you this illusion and that it is highly depending on the tide. The one that we visited was closer to the beach/island, and the operator will set it up for you as most of the time, the tide is not on your favour.

6. Sungai Burung Aquarium

It’s a privately own aquarium that is located in this quaint village. They have huger garoupa, spotted gar, monitor lizards and etc.

7. Bagan Datuk Waterfront

Bagan Datuk Waterfront is the new ‘in’ thing, coupled with the beautifully coloured town, I foresee Bagan Datuk will draw visits from locals and be the latest hot-lepak-place soon. The shophouses where built back in 1926 has now being repainted (since 2018), the birth of the Tuminah Floating Mosque at the new Bagan Datuk water front are gonna boom this place up.

Excited? Best kan… do plan a trip here.
