We started our journey on the CNY day itself (Thursday), but not without stopping for homemade breakfast at Sungai Buloh first.
Right after we checked in and freshened up, we went to Lost world of Tambun which is about 15 mins away. It is a water park similar to Sunway Lagoon, but it has so much more. There's petting zoo, hotspring, tiger valley etc.
The next day, on the way back we stopped at Kellies Castle, Batu Gajah about 20mins from Ipoh town. It was originally built by an English man for his family, but it was halfway completed as he died during the construction due to an illness.
It is a 4 storey high castle with a magnificent view of Banjaran Titiwangsa from the rooftop.
