What you can expect

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!

A visit to the Lake Garden is a must! Enjoy the green carpet of grass and tall trees surrounding you. Feel the tranquil vibes and inhale the fresh air while marveling at the lush green scenery that's unlike any other lakeside!

What would a trip to Taiping be without a visit to the Zoo? The spacious 34 acres of land is home to more than 180 species of exotic animals. Can you spot the tigers, lions, giraffes elephants and hippos? Want do a night safari instead? I'd be happy to arrange it for you!

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!

Feeling recharged after a great meal? 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. Feel free to ask me any questions along the way!

Want to do something extra special like fireflies​ watching? This private tour can be 100% customized to your wishes! Feel free to contact me for a personalized offer or with any quesitons.
