Army Museum

Reviewed By Arun K - Singapore, Singapore

Wow, lot of war planes, helicopters, tanks, and many more... telling the history. The main attraction was the locomotive and the loco patrol vehicle. Its worth a visit, try to visit in the afternoon hours. Possible bring umbrella. There are some small refreshment stalls available inside.

Church of The Visitation

Reviewed By DeanMurphy2020 - Orlando, Florida

All the following is history. The building and grounds are an incredible experience. Be sure to go up the outdoor steps (for those without ambulation issues) and enjoy the Gardens where Mary and Elizabeth once strolled. This was one of the most serene and peaceful sites I experienced in Jerusalem. It is an active church, so decorum and respect of worshipers at prayer is expected.
Church of the Visitation in Jerusalem’s Ein Karem district is the site where the newly pregnant mother of Jesus met with her cousin Elizabeth, the pregnant mother of John the Baptist (Luke 1:39–56: “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb”). Tradition has it that Mary recited her song of praise, the Magnificat (Latin for “my soul magnifies the Lord”, aka the Song of Mary). John is believed to be six months older than Jesus. (One accompanying photo depicts one statue more “pregnant” than the other.)
Tradition attributes the first church was constructed for Helena of Constantinople [Istanbul], who identified this site as the home of Zachary, John’s father, and where Elizabeth and her infant son hid from Herod’s soldiers. The church was inaccessible to Christian pilgrims in the Muslim siege of Jerusalem in 638AD. Crusaders in the 11th century erected a 2-story church on the ancient ruins found here, but by 1480 Armenian monks report only uninhabitable ruins. Franciscans purchased the property in 1679 but did little to the ruins, believing it to be sacrilege to alter the historic religious site. The grounds were excavated in 1937 (when Hitler had seized control of German, and the year before Kristallnacht, “Night of Broken Glass,” when Nazis broke windows of businesses owned by Jews). The Franciscans began construction on the present edifice incorporating all extant Byzantine and Crusader remains as part of the new shrine.

Gunung Datuk Recreational Forest

Reviewed By Vijay1008uk - Petaling Jaya, Malaysia

This Mountain has been eluding me for the past 4 years, finally in November in the midst of raining season decided to climb this mountain.
To reach this place we took the North / South Highway and exited at Pedas Linggi and to drive past Rembau town towards Tampin its about 20km from the highway. At the foothills even though there are parking facilities but is not sufficient. An entrance fee of RM 5 is required. The accent starts as soon we enter the jungle proper and its all the way up the hike was about 2km where we need to climb about 700meters these mountain is 884meters. It took me 1hour and 25mins to the peak and another 50 minutes to decent. At the peak one have to climb 4 flights of stairs to reach the top of the boulder where one gets 360 degrees of magnificent view. Since the weather was good we could see the Straits of Melaka.

If you're in Tampin, please feel free to drop by to see the pre-war Church building. Very few around in this country. If you like architecture, this is the place to check out. Say a little pray when you're here. Blessing! :)

Istana Seri Menanti

Reviewed By royalbutterfly - Singapore, Singapore

Great architecture and well-preserved. The palace is important for it's historical and heritage values. There are signboards explaining the history of the area & legends, etc. It's also nice to have a glimpse of how royalty lived in previous times ;)
You can't take photos of the interior/decorations, but you may take photos facing out, e.g. stand next to the window and take a photo with the view.
I would recommend this for those interested in seeing more than just the 'big-name' attractions in Malaysia. I don't know whether there are any tour packages to this place, so this might suit those who prefer to rent a car and drive themselves around.

We stayed at Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson and took grab (RM 12). The walk to the lighthouse is about 20-30mins, in between there are shade around, basically you are walking under the trees. The Lighthouse is locked, you can only walk around the lighthouse.

Reviewed By oliverd - Sydney, Australia

A great half-day walk, combining some views from the peak with cascades and river crossings. I’d definitely recommend the Ulu Bendul route, or going up one way and back the other for variety.
It’s about an hour from my KL to Seremban, about 60km to the south, and then another 20min drive to the start of one of the trail. We took the Bukit Putus route up, which is the shorter and more direct route, starting at an altitude of 285m.
The descent we are taking is the longer Ulu Bendul trail. It’s narrower and seems less trafficked than the Bukit Putus route we took up (although other trip reports suggest this longer route is more popular) – and descends even more steeply. In a number of places there are sections of rope in place to help descend the slippery track. There's a number of very picturesque cascades and swimming holes once you reach the valley.
It's about 4km via Bukit Putus and 7km via Ulu Bendul route (+3km if you're walking along the highway to connect the two trails - best to have two vehicles if possible).

Sak Dato Temple

Reviewed By 4vifkr - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Having friends visiting in KL for a day & don't know where to bring them? This place offers a quick, not-far-from the city alternative. The temple seats on a hill where a hanging bridge leads to a short climb to the viewing point. Here you can get a full view of the surrounding hills & the valley in the distance. Here too can you get a free dose of fresh air which is quite coveted if you're a city resident.
There are a number of restaurants around which will be worth the trip. One of these serves fish & veges wrapped in foil & cooked on charcoal served piping hot on the foil itself.
Not bad for a short drive from KL.

Gunung Datuk

Reviewed By utma

We were two couples 40-50 age group with one young kid. There were heavy rain just before we started the climb around 9.15 am. It took us around 2.5-3 hours to climb. Some of us were newbies in trekking and found it extremely challenging. Due to rain, the path was quite slippery. I used to do trekking earlier but I also found it moderately tough. The initial 1 km and last 350 meter climb is quite steep. Need to be very careful while coming down after climb.
