Malaysia can be considered as one of the most spectacular countries as it features some beautiful beaches, national parks, rainforests, and waterfalls all around the globe.
Fan Fact - Malaysia is divided into two parts, the eastern part, which is known as Borneo Island, and the western region known as Peninsular Malaysia. It is a must-visit destination and is loved by tourists from all over the world. Also, Malaysia has people from various religions and countries, and that is why it is so rich in terms of culture and heritage!
For all our friends staying abroad, Bentong is located in Pahang, which is one of the largest states in Malaysia. If you have heard of Pahang, you will know that it is home to our National Park (Taman Negara), which is so massive that it spills into two neighboring states (Kelantan and Terengganu) in the east coast. Now Bentong itself is one of the 11 districts in the state of Pahang, known for its green hills and durians (yes, the King of fruits itself).
Bukit Tinggi is also a small town in the Pahang district but has many amazing things to do. It is famous for horse Trail Rides, Japanese Village, and the type of food served here. There are numerous places to visit in Bukit Tinggi Malaysia, such as Karak Highway, Rabbit Farm and so much more!

The Karak Highway can be one of the most notorious haunted places in the whole of Malaysia. Connecting Genting Highlands with Cameron Highlands, two of the most famous tourist destinations, the long and winding E8 Expressway has witnessed way too many accidents. Some unconfirmed sightings are of a lost young boy searching for his mother and of a yellow Volkswagen that continues indefinitely in line once you overtake it. Oh, and did we mention, the Volkswagen does not have a driver! Brr Creepy isn’t it?!
