It's the school holidays and we recently went to Bukit Gambang Water Park. Gambang is a small town situated 28km from Kuantan. It's less than 3 hours drive from Kuala Lumpur. On the way to Kuantan, we decided to drop by Batu Caves. Rachel is studying about rock formation in her Geograpgy lesson so I thought it would be nice for her to visit Batu Caves and take a look at some limestone formations. Besides, the last time I went to Batu Caves was nearly 30 years ago. The place is still the same except that now they have errected a beautiful golden statue of Lord Muruga which stands 130 feet tall. The climb to the top of the hill is no easy feat. It took me almost 20 minutes to reach the top with plenty of stops along the way. You can see other people and tourist all strugling to catch their breath. In the end I made it. Yes! all 272 steps!
Our home in Gambang for the next 4 days would be The Carribean Bay resorts. It is a cluster of apartment style accomodations. Just five minutes away is the Gambang Water Park. The acomodations are very basic, no fancy decor and simple furniture. However, the beds are comfy and clean and so are the toilets!
