We stopped at the herb island whereby we were treated with herb drinks ie tongkat Ali, kacip fatimah and mahkota dewa drinks for free.. One can also buy a plant as low as RM10.00 at the herb island.We also stopped at another island where there... More

Kenyir Lake is about an hour from Kuala Terengganu, but there are express buses from the city. It is a massive lake, and very interesting to cruise its waters. There are a range of activities from jungle walks to orchid viewing, and well worth the journey.

All about this lake is great except when you take a trip to the falls, you will be in a small rudimentary boat.

Nearer, there are a few green islands. and still nearer, that is the hill slope of the resort with thick foliage plants and a few haughty tall palm... More

Beautiful serene and picturesque. That says it all. Should try the boat ride. It is so peaceful that you feel out of this world. The herb garden is well maintained and informative. The Saok Waterfall is very quiet and a nice average size waterfall. However, would be better if the boat used on the lake is battery operated to reduce... More
