This isn’t my first visit to Sabah, i’ve been to Sandakan few years ago but this is my first visit to Semporna! And yes, the reason Semporna is because of Sipadan Island (: Always heard about the place but never serious planning for it and so, ta-da! I’m here on my birthday month, had my first dive, first island hike and met some new friends!
A nature area combining culture and art displays with recreational activities such as hikes and biking. The name Qing Xin Ling itself means hill which purifies the soul/heart had become one of the most popular tourist attractions in Ipoh due to its similarity to China’s Guilin. Basically what you can do here is visiting the chalets, feed the fish, admire some nostalgic antiques, bike around with free of charge, wish upon the banyan tree and walk along the memory lane. I personally think that the memory lane part really brings me back to history.
Just noticed that i didn’t really take much photos of this place, probably because i was busy snapping Instagram stories. This is a proof that i enjoyed being here (:

Gua Tempurung is a cave located in Gopeng, Perak (nearby Ipoh). About 3 km long, it is one of the longest caves in Peninsula Malaysia. Part of it has been developed as a show cave with electric lighting and walkways and there are a range of tours of different length sand difficulty. A fine river cave, the river passage runs about 1.6 km through the hill. There are three very large chambers and some spectacular stalactites and stalagmites. It is made up of 5 large domes and is believed to have existed since 8,000 B.C., about 10,000 years ago!
We went for the dry tour only because wet tour needs to have minimum pax to start. There are a few other activities you can do in Gopeng like Rafting and ATV Ride so if you are planning to stay for the night, go for all!
