During the last school holidays, four families embarked on a road trip to various towns of Perak.

After some research and planning, we started our 3D2N trip up north before dawn. We put up our nights at Kinta Riverfront Hotel and Suites. Since the hotel is still brand new (7 months old), we have nothing to complain except some minor things such as slow service. Overall, the hotel is fine.

The trip took place from August 19 to August 21.

If I lump everything in one post, it will be long and messy. So I divide them by location.

Anyway here’s our itinerary for those who care:

Day 1: Gopeng Heritage House – Hup Teck Soy Factory, Gopeng – Kellie’s Castle, Batu Gajah – Heritage Driving Tour of Batu Gajah – Lunch in Kampung Bukit Timah, Tanjung Tualang – The Last Dredge, Tanjung Tualang – Check-in Hotel, Ipoh

Day 2: Ipoh – Kinta Nature Park, Tanjung Tualang – Lunch in Kampar – Gua Tempurung, Gopeng

Day 3: Ipoh: Chinese Sausage Factory, Keong Kee Gunung Rapat Biscuits – Home
