Heard of Sungai Lembing? Filled with rolling hills, forested areas and cultural attractions, this town near Kuantan is one of the country’s enchanting hidden gems. If you don’t believe us, here are 5 reasons why Sungai Lembing is a magical realm in Malaysia.
1. Panorama Hill is a paradise above the clouds
It takes 45 minutes to hike up the “stairway to heaven” to the top of Panorama Hill, but it’s worth it. Just look at that breathtaking sunrise and sea of clouds!
2. Rainbows appear every morning at Rainbow Falls
Most people get really excited when they see a rainbow, and this happens every morning at Rainbow Falls. To get here, you’ll need an hour to get into the rainforest via a 4WD, and another 45 minutes to reach the magnificent waterfall. Doesn’t it remind you of heaven on earth?
3. It’s a mysterious realm in Gua Charas
Gua Charas is a temple cave with sublime stalactite formations. As you enter the belly of the quiet yet otherworldly cave, you’ll see many Hindu and Buddhist statues, including the 9-metre Sleeping Buddha.
4. This bridge reminds us of Spirited Away
The Suspension Bridge hangs over the river and the sleepy town of Sungai Lembing. It looks as though Hayao Miyazaki’s spirit world is right on the other side!
5. The Time Capsule Retreat is straight out of a fairytale!
The Time Capsule Retreat is a comfortable family-run retreat in Sungai Lembing Town. Designed within a lush environment, it is popular for the unique capsule rooms. At night, you and your friends get to have fun photo opportunities!
