Muar River Cruise



My family love Muar , in fact within the span of 2 month we had spent the night twice at the local hotel there . What we like about Muar is the high concentration of good food within such a small area . Besides good food , muar is also famous for its river cruise.The cruise was reasonably price at RM 10 per adult with a journey spanning 45 minutes from tanjung emas to sabak aur and back . The boat itself is quite unique and sturdy . I was told that it was made from cengal wood which will cost a bomb.
The scenery along the river is not bad also as the waterfront area is full of historical building which had been preserved to its pristine condition.

Picnic at Gunung Ledang Resort



 
The whole family went for a picnic last week in Taman Negara Gunung Ledang . Situated in Ledang district which is a stone throw away from MUAR.I feel a bit dissapointed with the overall condition at these area . The picnic area was a bit dirty and  not well maintained  . You need to pay a certain entrance fee to enter these area ,  i was under the impression that if you need to pay for a public facility then the facility provided must be up to a certain standard. Unfortunately , the opposite thing happened . I could see rubbish everywhere at the picnic area . A good example of a well run public area with a minimal entrance fee is ULU YAM and FRIM in Selangor.
 
This area had a lot of potential and i do hope that something is being done to spruce up this place .
