A day trip to BENTONG, Pahang

I had been planning to make a trip to Bentong, Pahang since I read about a home-made ice-cream shop that has been in business for more than 30 years. We finally made a day trip to Bentong on a fine Weekend.

Bentong is a town in the state of Pahang, Malaysia. It is located about 80 km from Kuala Lumpur. We set off too late that we had missed some nice famous food. Nevertheless we still enjoy the trip as there are so much to explore in Bentong. I guess i will be there more often in the near future.

On the way to Bentong, TANARIMBA JANDA BAIK

Bentong’s most famous attraction turned out to be the legendary Kow Po Ice Cream Parlour. The old fashioned ice cream which is famous for its homemade ice cream had been one of some food must eat in Bentong.
And it is not difficult to find. The shop is just located opposite HENTIAN RAYA BENTONG!
We know KOW PU is famous by just looking at their counter
There are a variety of ice creams which comes with different flavors include chocolate, coffee, banana, peanut, vanilla and strawberry.

Chamang Waterfall in Bentong, a place that should not be missed by anyone!
Wow, look at the water! Not every place can WOW me by the way but Chamang Fall did it!
The Chamang Fall can be reached by taking the road from Bentong to Raub.
This waterfall has dangerous spots, with turbulence and whirlpools.
Almost yearly tragic accidents happen here. There are clear warning signs, read them!
The waterfall is very nice and you will be very excited to take photos with such a nice scenery.
