Banjaran Hot Spring
I think a picture paints a thousand words here. Beautiful Natural Limestone hill . It is here you can conduct your Yoga or a Vipassana meditation, and if you want to experience Ipoh City, it is only 20 minutes drive away.
The Haven (Best Western Run)
Slightly further down the Banjaran, there is a new development where it is condominium called the Haven and one of the block is run as a hotel by Best Western.
One of my friend has a unit here and I really love the view and the tranquility of this area. If you love nature, you would love it here.
