Jalan2 Balik Ipoh (Part 1)

the long weekend is here for Federal Territory workers (yippie). Mr Hubby decided to head back to Ipoh, his hometown. The journey started a bit late in the afternoon. A lots of things need to settle before we could start our journey. Nadhirah had her 18months jab. Then we attended my cousin's newborn Aqiqah at TTDI. then we rushed to GH to visit my auntie whom just had an operation yesterday.

On our way back to Ipoh, Mr Hubby decided to had a stop at Air Panas Sungkai. it was around 6ish when we arrived at Sungkai. The hot spring is located in Felda Sg Kelah itself. The entrance fee is RM10 for adult and RM 5 for kids.

There are 2 pools, Kolam Air Gunung (the cold version) and the Hot Spring (the hot version). Kolam Air Gunung closes at 7 p.m but the hot spring closes at 10p.m. We managed to dip our feet at the hot springs. Muqtasaem enjoyed dipping his feet in the pool. there are few pools depending on temperature. ada jugak kolam utk rebus telur! hehehehhe..
Nadhirah was not really enjoying it. skit skit suruh bibi dukung..lucky me :D.
we only stayed there about 45mins, since Maghrib is approaching. But overall, its not bad at all. The place is a bit secluded and the scenery is marvelous. Yelah dalam kawasan Felda :).
We wished that we could stay longer..maybe we can plan for a day trip!

Here some of the info about Sg Kelah Hot Spring. excerpt (

"A splashing and exciting getaway, the FELDA Residence Hot Springs is nestled in the serene and lush forest patches, surrounded by hills and clear cold mountain streams and rivers.
