Don’t you find yourself constantly wondering what on earth to do each weekend? Booking a nice hotel is one thing but really all you’re going to gain is a good night’s sleep and not so much of an experience. In this post, I’d like to share with you one of my TREASURED road trips that I’ve kept secret for far too long now.
Here’s the secret code breakdown:
5am drive from Kuala Lumpur to Broga Hill (I know what you’re thinking, why so early ah?! Sunrise people!)
5:40am arrive at Broga Hill and trek for 40 minutes to catch a beautiful morning view
7am drive to Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary
9am arrive and get your FREE entrance ticket ( entrance is free, however, you can giver donations of course!)
12pm drive from Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary to Cherating
2pm arrive at Cherating and check into your booked hotel.
From here there’s plenty of activities to do at the beach, in your hotel or in the local restaurants!
Petrol return journey with a car filled with 4 people: 150RM
Elephant Sanctuary: FREE entrance but you can give donations to your guide depending on your heart 😉
Hotel: Hotels in Cherating are available at a range of prices, we stayed in Sanctuary Resort for 235RM per night for a three bed roomed apartment
♥ Here’s some more photos and a bit more information about what YOU could be experiencing ♥
Broga Hill is a popular hiking spot used by casual hikers since its only 400 metres in altitude and not too far from KL. Although the hike is fairly easy, you will STILL feel a strong sense of accomplishment as soon as you reach the top since the views are incredible and without doubt your shirt will be dripping wet!
Funnily enough the name Broga is believed to be derived from Buragas, a mythical beast that lived in the forest- so watch out!
Cherating is a beach located on Peninsular Malaysia’s East Coast and is known for its laid back, easy going atmosphere. It’s a popular tourist destination for it’s surfing opportunities as well as it’s turtle sanctuary.
