Why this trip?
Treat yourself for a private day tour to Taiping and Kuala Sepetang, the two towns that have shared many similarities in the past. They were the first towns to have Malaysia's first railway stations and both communities focus on the tin industry in the past!
When arriving in Taiping you can kick off your private tour with a visit to the historical Antong Coffee Mill. The unmistakable aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans will greet you as you make your way inside. Here you can see how local coffee is made. The coffee mill carries more than 20 coffee-based beverages and for those who dare: there's even a durian coffee!
Get ready to make your taste buds dance because it's time for a yummy local meal at the Kuala Sepetang riverside restaurant. Marvel at the gorgeous views over the riverside and mangroves protected jungle. You might even spot some monkeys!
Pay visit to an old self support village, walk around the village with a sip of special coffee drink made from them. Boat trip with eagle feeding on the way back to land.
A visit to the mangrove forest reserve and charcoal factory awaits. At the factory, you can see how mangrove trees turn into charcoal. I can tell you all about how they are transported from the forest to the factory.
