... plantations. With temperatures somewhere around 33-35C and very high humidity, it made for some sweaty biking. Pleasantly, there was a mid afternoon rainstorm that passed through to provide a warm shower to take some of the heat of the day away. The biking led us through villages, past the smelly rubber processing plant and next to a field with water buffalo grazing and their companion egrets sticking close by. It was just the ...

... so the bar soon filled up. Secretly we were routing for Vietnam but as Malaysia ended up winning 4-2 (5-4 on aggregate) we couldn't complain too much. At half-time and full-time of the game live music was played which consisted of English classics we were able to sing along two and after a couple of buckets of beer we headed back.

... investigating it a bit more, we found out that the peak is 4095mt high, and it takes 2 days of climbing to get to the top. So, we quickly changed our mind, and also we had not pre-booked for the hike. Apparently you have to book 6 months ahead to do the climb(what a pity we missed out)!!! Lol. We did go to the base of the mountain, and walked for a short walk at the base, and went on a canopy walk as well. We met another Australian lady who came on the tour with us, ...
