If you are reading Escapy, your heart is looking for adventure. The
explorer in you wants to go places, see new things, live new experiences,
and have fun. This issue is certainly for you especially if you
are in Malaysia and wondering where to go.
The Manjung District in Perak is one place that many a holiday
maker overlook. Old historical towns like Sitiawan and Teluk Intan
are usually given a miss as most travellers will go straight to Lumut,
hop on a ferry to Pangkor Island; thus why Lumut is known as the
gateway to Pangkor Island.
In this issue we look at some of the attractions in Manjung and
why one should spare a few days and explore the area.

Out And About
Lumut is home to the Royal
Lumut in Perak, Malaysia; is a coastal town and a
gateway to holiday and sports fishing spots such as the
Sembilan Islands (Nine Islands), Jarak Island, and Pangkor
Island; a holiday destination. Being a gateway it
has for long acted as a transit point but there are places
that one can visit in Lumut itself.
The Lumut Waterfront is a little town where the
ferry terminal to Pangkor Island is located. It is
here that visitors to Pangkor Island board ferries
that take them to Pangkor Island. But there
is more to do here.
Shopping & Walking About
The Lumut Waterfront is a good place to shop
for seafood based titbits and produce such as
dried squid, satay fish, dried shrimps, salted
fish, etc. of which it is famous for. There are
also shops that sell beach fun products, souvenirs,
mobile devices, and general groceries.
Family Fun Along The Water’
Along the water’s edge of Lumut Waterfront
are various parks where one can go to with the
family for a picnic, or to just sit back and relax;
taking in the laid back atmosphere of the town.
There are play grounds with swings, slides, etc.
at these parks for children to play at.
> Lumut jetty area.
Those who enjoy photography will have a field
day photographing structures, sculptures, wildlife,
boats, etc. Along the water’s edge. There
is also a large old Navy ship called KD Rahmat
that has been docked there for years.
> A pigeon shot at the Lumut Waterfront while
This ship (KD Rahmat) is a maritime
museum called the KD Rahmat Maritime
Museum, that visitors can visit.
It also gives the area character and
makes for good photos. Lumut is not
just any coastal town. It is also home
to one of Malaysia’s Navy bases..
Anglers that live around the area
frequent this place with hopes of
catching some fish and crabs. On
one of my trips to Lumut I chanced
upon a family fishing for crabs
along the rocky banks. They were
fishing crabs with fishing rod and
lines (not crab pots).

Lumut Mangrove Park
Spending Time With Nature
Mangroves are essential habitats to a variety
of animals such as crabs, mudskippers,
certain birds, etc. When visiting Lumut Waterfront
town (jetty to Pangkor Island) one can stop
to check out the Lumut Mangrove Park that is
not far from the town. It is visible from the main
A wooden walkway takes you into the mangrove.
The walkway leads all the way to the muddy
banks of the Lumut River where monitor lizards,
mudskippers, crabs, etc. The walk to the river
takes about 20 to 25 minutes. There is also a
hanging bridge there. During my visit, parts of
the walkway was closed for maintenance.
As you walk do observe the live going
on around you. There are lots of crabs
on the muddy mangrove grounds. They
are easily spooked too. One will have to
walk slowly to be able to observe them.
The crabs here are mainly tree climbing
crabs. They move about slowly until
they sense someone nearby, then they
scuttle off into a crab hole nearby. These
crab are colourful too with colourful dots
on their shell and colourful claws that
are mainly in red.
There are lots of birds at the
area. I saw magpies and
lots of pigeons. I also heard
what sounded like a knocking
sound. Perhaps the sound of
a woodpecker pecking on a
tree. I am certain that there
are more birds to watch but
not on my visit.
There are also monkeys (long tail
macaques) that hang about it the
mangrove. While they may be cute,
they are wild animals and the ones
here are not afraid of humans. They
even try to snatch things off anyone
who is not careful.
This behaviour is usually developed
overtime as they become accustomed
to receiving food and handouts
from people. In time they start
expecting food and handouts from
people who are around. Sometime
they can become aggressive should
they not receive handouts. The best
thing to do is to not make eye contact
with the aggressive ones and
slowly back off.
One thing I would like to emphasize
here is to “stop feeding monkeys.” It
causes them more harm than good.
Things To Bring
A camera is a must especially one with good
zooming capabilities should one enjoy taking
photos of wildlife. Other things to bring are
drinking water and insect repellent as there
are mosquitoes there, hungry for blood. Do no
bring food as the monkeys will most certainly
want some and may attack.

Temple Of The Giants
Have you seen giants by the beach
looking out to sea? What about giant
deities by the beach looking out to sea?
The Tua Pek Kong Temple in Sitiawan,
Perak, Malaysia is where giant statues
of deities sit by the beach and look out
This temple is said to be over a hundred years
old yet it does not look its age; perhaps they
found the fountain of youth. The temple is well
maintained thanks to the donations of those
who come to worship and or visit.
Upon arriving at the temple one will see tall walls
surrounding the temple. It looks like a fort protecting
all that is within it. As one arrives head
towards the parking area one will see huge statues
of deities such as Guanyin, a giant tiger,
and right in the middle sitting on a throne is the
statue of Tua Pek Kong.
Smaller statues of monkeys and worshippers
stand at the outside of the wall as if paying homage
to these deities. The inside sits a dragon
tunnel, pagodas, and more statues of deities.
This temple sits on a
muddy beach. Crabs
roam about the muddy
beach going about
their day to day activities,
when some human
(the likes of me) come
by to observe them,
scaring them back into
Good For Photos
Imagine photographing giants that have landed
on earth. Of course these are made of less organic
materials and they do not move. These
giant statues make for good photos. After photographing
these giants, one can also head to
the muddy beach and photograph the crabs,
mud skippers, and sea birds.
^ A huge tiger statue.
Do Visit These Giants
Whether one goes there to worship or to visit
or both, the Tua Pek Kong temple certainly is
an attraction that one must go to when one is
in Sitiawan or Lumut. The temple is about 16
kilometres away from Lumut Waterfront.

Of Teluk Intan
Many would have heard
of the Leaning Tower Of
Pisa. Many would have
gone there too. But not
many know that there is
a leaning tower in Malaysia.
This leaning tower sits
at the main square of the
Teluk Intan town, a coastal
town in Perak, Malaysia.
It is the Leaning Tower Of
The tower was built back as a water tank and
storehouse back in 1885 under the guidance
of contractor and philanthropist, Leong Choon
Chong. This pagoda tower became a landmark
and a meeting place for the people here.
History On The
During World War II (1941 to 1945) the British
wanted to demolish the tower as they were afraid
that the Japanese would use it as a bombing
landmark but due to the protests of the locals
that didn’t happen. Later on the Japanese took
over the tower and it became a watch tower. It
was damaged during the war and was rebuilt.
The Leaning Tower Of Teluk Intan is in a way,
magical. From the outside the tower looks like
a wooden pagoda (made of chengal wood; a
type of tropical hardwood) with 8 floors. Once
inside one will realize that it only has 3 floors
and the walls are made of bricks, with the water
tank sitting right above. It is 25.5 metres tall, 13
metres in diameter tapering to 8.1m.
The Leaning Tower Of Teluk Intan tilts southwest
towards the town centre. This is due to the
soft soil that it was built on having to bear the
weight of the tower and the water tank (stores
about 20,000 litre of water). Being heavier on
the top, the tower slowly tilted. A major flood
happened somewhere in the 1880s (between
1889 to 1895) and that softened the ground
Studies and work carried out in the mid 1990s
by a local university (University Sains Malaysia)
confirmed that the tower is in no danger
of falling and is safe for visitors to walk in and
have a look at the inside.
> View of the tower from the entranc
Winding stairway to the top.
The clock of this leaning tower was
purchased from a British clock maker
in London; J.W. Benson Ltd. nine
years after it was built. The locals
came together and donated money
to purchase this clock that still works
chiming every 15 minutes.
^ Some history of the tower near the entrance.
The Tower Today
The Leaning Tower Of Teluk Intan has since
been recognized as a National Heritage and it
attracts plenty of visitors. On its walls are old
photos that share some of the history and major
events that happened around Teluk Intan.
The tower no longer functions as a water storage
tower although the tank still sits at the top
Visiting This Tower
Is A Must
Should you be in Lumut, Sitiawan, Teluk Intan,
etc. a visit to this iconic tower is a must. Here

Teluk Senangin B
^ The lovely Teluk Senangin Beach.
Looking for a lovely beach to get away to when in Lumut?
There is a rather secluded beach called Teluk Senangin
Beach that is popular with the locals but not well known
enough to pull throngs of visitors from out of state or town.
It is about 27.2 kilometres from the Lumut Waterfront (jetty
to Pangkor) and about 10.6 kilometres from Swiss-Garden
Beach Resort Damai Laut. The Teluk Senangin Beach is
certainly a beach to visit when one is in the area.
Great Place For A Picnic
The Teluk Senangin Beach is a beach with soft
sand and waters that are good for swimming
in or playing in. The waters are generally safe
with small waves (different conditions during
the monsoon seasons) and they certainly look
inviting although clarity is rather average. This
beach is certainly a good beach to picnic at under
One can opt to stay at the beach as there are
homestays and resorts by the beach offering
accommodation to those who want to spend
more time here. There are also food stalls and
shops selling beach items like balls, kites, etc.
, as well as basic amenities such as toilets and
Do Take Note
Should you decide to visit during the month of
Ramadan do note that most of the shops will be
closed during the day.

One of the places to visit
is the Segari Turtle Sanctuary
in Lumut. It is located at a remote
beach in Pasir Panjang.
Here the sanctuary under the
Fisheries Department, focuses
on conservation with the
aim of preventing them from
going extinct and improving
Here visitors can learn about
turtles, the various species,
their habitat, issues that they
are facing and that are driving
them towards extinction, and
what the turtle sanctuary is
doing to help conserve them.
The Segari Turtle Sanctuary monitors the
beaches especially during the season when
turtles come up to lay eggs. The eggs are collected
and moved to a hatchery where they can
hatch safely away from ants, monitor lizards,
and people that collect eggs to be eaten and
sold at the market as food.
After hatching the hatchlings are placed into
pools to improve their survival rates as many
turtles perish out at sea being eaten by predators,
or having eat wrong things like plastics,
and also due to the harsh environment. As
these turtles grow they are transferred into different
pools until they are ready to be released
back into the sea.
^ Educational boards teaches visitors about turtles.
A Must Visit
The Segari Turtle Sanctuary is a place one must
visit when one is in Lumut. One thing though is that
mobile services seem to be a problem around the
area and Google Maps may not work. So, it is best
to study the map carefully before heading there.
Also, do bring along drinking water should you decide
to spend a longer period of time there.
Mondays to Sundays:
10am to 12.30pm and 2pm to 5pm.

Place Of Fun & T
Shot of the waterfall at night.
Holidays and vacations are
taken to help get one’s mind
off the daily grind. But holidays
are not just about sitting back,
letting one’s hair down, and
do nothing, although doing
so can make for an excellent
holiday too. Fun recreational
activities help create better
memories too, adding plenty
of fun and excitement to one’s
holiday. Swiss-Garden Beach
Resort Damai Laut offers lots
of fun things to do.
Swiss-Garden Beach Resort
Damai Laut is a family friendly
holiday destination with plenty
of activities for all in the family.
While parents sit back and
read books or do more adventurous
activities like riding an
ATV, or jungle trekking; children
can hangout at the Kids
Club, paint batik, etc.
Here are some fun activities
that can be had.
Waterfalls at the pool.
Fun @The Po
Swimming pools are lots of
fun and the pool at Swiss-
Garden Beach Resort Damai
Laut is designed for fun. It is
designed in a way that allows
for children and adults to have
fun. It is of non-geometrical
or irregular shape and has a
waterfall at one section, with
a small bridge that one can
This allows for a more adventurous swim that
perhaps appeal to children, as they go swimming
under the bridge amongst the two pools,
and go “dolphining” under the splashes of the
^ Having fun in the pool amongst the faux rocks.
No family resort is complete without a Kid’s
Club. It is here where children can have lots of
fun in a safe environment. The Kid’s Club here
at the Swiss-Garden Beach Resort Damai Laut
offers activities for younger children and teens.
Those who love arcade machines will have a
field day feeding coins to these machines here.
All time favourite games like street fighter and
various shooting games are available. Should
one prefer a quieter game on a large table;
snooker is an option.
^ Snooker, a fun and challenging game.
Batik painting is a fun way to
help children (and adults) exercise
their creative side even
when on holidays and is available
here at the Kids Club with
a few designs to choose from.
But should one decide to just
do colouring or painting rocks
instead of batik, that can be
Available here at the Kid’s
Club other than batik and rock
painting are keychain painting,
t-shirt painting, mug painting,
and sand art.
Should children prefer to relax and not do much
they can sit back and watch cartoons here in
the comfort of an air-conditioned room.
Being a beach resort fishing is
certainly something one can
do. One can fish off the beach
(away from the main public
area) or opt to fish at the private
jetty. Personally I prefer
to fish at the private jetty as it
is quieter and the river mouth
it sits in is where fishes swim in
and out of the river. For baits,
squid can be purchased at the
resort to be used as baits.
Another reason why I prefer
fishing here at the jetty is because
it is quiet and away from
the crowd... in another words,
peace and tranquility.
Great Place For...
The beach here is famous for
clams. With a bucket in hand,
one can go about picking
clams. These clams can be
boiled and eaten. Should you
decide to do so, do wash them
well as they live in the sandy
bottom of the beach and thus
contain bits of sand. Clams
can also be used as bait for
Fun Horse Riding
Should one want to experience riding a horse on
a beach, horse riding is available at the beach.
Put on a helmet for safety and be on your way
(with a guide holding on of course). Should you
decide to do horse riding or any other activity
that requires one to wear a helmet that is shared
by many; bring along a shower cap for hygiene
purpose. Put on the shower cap before putting
on the helmet.
Perhaps one has harboured dreams of becoming
Robin Hood. Fulfil those dreams here and
try your hand at archery; taking aim and shooting
at hay target boards. There are bows and
arrows to cater for younger teens and adults.
Archery can be a dangerous activity and as
such; do follow the instructions of the instructors
and adhere to the rules to ensure any untoward
accidents are avoided.
For those that want more excitement, a ride on
an All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) will feed that want.
The ride goes through a designated track. Handling
the ATV is in itself is a fun and exciting
experience, drifting about the sand (or rather
losing control) and trying to go in a straight line.
ATV rides are plenty of fun and something
that I highly recommend. Note too that
it can be dangerous and ATVs are real
vehicles and must be handled with care.
Obey all instructions given and stick to
the route for safety reasons.ine.
Jet Ski Rides
After zipping about on land
in an ATV, why not zip about
on water. Jet Skis are lots of
fun. They are like ATVs but on
water. They are fast on water
too allowing one to enjoy
the wind in one’s face as well
as splashes of water. As with
all crafts that goes fast; it is
important to adhere to safety
Another thrilling fast ride is
one on a banana boat being
towed by a motorboat. Hold
on tight as the banana boat
zips on the water going over
waves creating a bouncy thrilling
fun ride as one gets wet
from splashes of seawater. It
is a ride one must experience
to feel the thrill and exhilaration
of a boat that is named
after a fruit.
If speed is not your thing perhaps canoeing will
be. Canoeing about Remis Beach (the beach
that the resort is built on) is fun. One gets to
takes one’s time and slowly row about the area.
Another fun thing that I like to do when canoeing
and kayaking is to chase and ride the waves
back to shore.
Island hopping is one of the must do activities
when one visits a beach resort such as
the Swiss-Garden Beach Resort Damai Laut.
Exploring some of the islands around the area
having fun and shooting photos is a good way
to capture the moments.
Snorkelling too is lots of fun exploring the underwater
world around the waters off Lumut. That said, Lumut
in itself is not famous for snorkelling but certain
places nearer to Pangkor Island allows for snorkelling
with good visibility.
Or if being in water is something you do not want to
do or have already done, why not take a boat ride to
Pangkor Island and just spend a few hours visiting
the area. Pangkor Island is famous for its sea produce
such as dried fish, squid, etc. It also has attractions
like the Dutch Fort, Tiger Rock or Historic Rock
(Batu Bersurat), boat building ship yard, etc.
Relax & Rejuvenate
After doing all these fun filled adventurous activities,
perhaps it is time to relax and rejuvenate. One can
do so at the Samsara Spa. The Samsara Spa offers
pampering massages, various treatments such
as body wraps, facial and nail care, etc.; wonderful
ways to bring peace and calm to one’s soul.
Holidaying at a beach resort is not all about getting
wet in seawater and getting sand on your feet. The
Swiss-Garden Beach Resort Damai Laut has a golf
course too called the Damai Laut Golf And Country
This championship golf course is designed by
Ronald W. Fream offering golfers from beginners
to pros 18 challenging holes with a wide
range of playing lengths, from more than 6600m
scaling down through four sets of teeing positions
to about 4800m.

It is nice to dine in beautifully decorated
and luxurious restaurants
once in a while when one is on a
holiday. And when we dine is such
places, the ambience of the place
add points to the experience.
What if you want something really
special and away from the crowd?
We had a wonderful dining experience
at the Swiss-Garden Beach
Resort Damai Laut in Lumut, Perak
Away From The
Being an angler I tend to look out
for places to go fishing at especially
when I am on holiday. On my
recent visit to the Swiss-Garden
Beach Resort Damai Laut with
my family, special arrangements
were made and I had the opportunity
to dine and fish at the resort’s
private jetty; and yes, we dined in
Safe & Secure
The private jetty of the resort is used to send
guests of the resort to Pangkor Island. It is a
wooden floating platform linked to land by a
concrete bridge. It has railings along its sides
except for the areas where the boats are secured
to. This helps keep people from falling
over and into the river.
Nice Place For Fun
Being a jetty it is a safe and fun
place to do some fun fishing. We
caught a good number of fishes
such as scads and threadfin
breams on apollo rigs. I used one
of them as live-bait but missed the
incoming tide (best tide to fish).
The best time to fish is when the
tide comes in. This brings more
fish such as barramundis into the
river. They swim past the jetty as
they make their way back in.
Dining Like VIPs
Want to feel like a VIP? We
certainly did feel like VIPs as
we dined at the jetty while
our fishing rods waited for a
fish to bite. We were the only
ones there apart from the F&B
staffs, the chef, and security.
The jetty was decorated with
lanterns that created a warm
The chef cooked on site preparing
awesome Italian cuisine
that we ordered earlier.
We were given cold towels
to cool off as dinner started
to be served beginning with
a tasty mushroom room soup
in a bun, followed by the main
course, and ending with dessert.
Superb Dining Experie
Everything served was delicious
and the atmosphere of
the jetty, the special feeling
one gets when being pampered
in a place away from
the crowd makes the experience
so very good, I cannot
find words good enough to
explain. It is the best dining
experience ever. Should you
visit the Swiss-Garden Beach
Resort, Damai Laut; I highly
recommend this dining experience
called “Fish & Feast”
especially when you want to
impress that special someone.

Restaurant Kopi Aik Hooi
Tucked away from the busy Lumut Waterfront
town is a little known coffee shop called
Restaurant Kopi Aik Hooi, a place frequent by
the locals. We chanced upon it on our way out
of the Lumut Waterfront Town and decided to
stop for a meal although we just had one at the
Basic But Tasty
The food here is basic but tasty. I enjoyed a
lovely bowl of curry laksa (a curry noodle dish)
that has beans, barbecued pork strips, and tofu
cooked in rich soupy curry. We also had a bowl
of noodles with shredded chicken in soup that
this place is famous for. While these are delicious,
the winner (to me personally) is...
Otak-otak is a local delicacy made
of chili, curry, fish, etc. wrapped
in a leaf. Otak-otak is rather common
these days; mostly wrapped
in a palm leaf, and barbecued. I
prefer the original steamed Nyonya
type but these days they are
hard to come by. Restaurant Kopi
Aik Hooi is one place where one
can find the original Teochew style
otak-otak that is also steamed,
and the taste is heavenly.
What I like about the otak-otak
here is that it is cooked with big
chunks of fish, a tasty concoction
of curry, chili, and herbs, but
a special leaf gives it a very fragrant
flavour. The otak-otak here
is rather spicy. For those unable
to handle spicy food prepare a
glass of water before digging in.
Restaurant Kopi Aik Hooi has
more to offer other than those stated.
They also have packed nasi
lemak (fragrant rice with chili),
economy fried beehoon (vermicelli),
noodles, dumpling noodles
(wantan noodles), porridge,
prawn noodles, etc. Do drop by

The 3rd Selangor
Arts Festival 2017;
Cultivating The City
Tourism Selangor collaborates with Asian
Indigenous People Pacts (AIPP) for the 3rd
Selangor International Indigenous Arts
Tourism Selangor has teamed up for the very
first time with Asian Indigenous People Pacts
(AIPP) to organise the 3rd annual event of Selangor
International Indigenous Arts Festival
2017 (SIIAF) on 5-6 August 2017, held at National
Botanical Garden, Shah Alam.
With this year’s theme ‘Cultivating The City’, the
festival also welcomes indigenous tribes from
countries such as the Philippines, Bangladesh,
Vietnam and Indonesia while accompanied by local
tribes from Selangor, Kelantan, Johor and Perak.
The festival takes place at the same official venue
National Botanical Garden, Shah Alam, where it
first debuted in 2015. The weekend festival features
an array of tribal and cultural performances
with a mission to accomplish its objectives. It
hopes to introduce and educate the public on the
culture and heritage of the indigenous people and
to create Selangor as a tourist hub for indigenous
“Since the first SIIAF 2015, we want to keep educating
the public on the indigenous people that
we share the state of Selangor with, along with
other tribes of Malaysia,” said YB Puan Elizabeth
Wong, Chairperson of Standing Committee, Tourism,
Consumer Affairs & Environment of Selangor.
She added that while the indigenous tribe may be a small
community, their historical ties to the land are deep-rooted
and they present the way of life that was once dominant
in the world. “Indigenous tribes are the gems of Selangor
and their importance to the state cannot be overlooked.
We want to keep this heritage alive and hope to create
Selangor as a tourist hub for the indigenous culture.”
The event is also jointly organised by several other
partners of Tourism Selangor including, FAMA Selangor,
Jaringan Orang Asal Se-Malaysia (JOAS),
Selangor Orang Asli Land Task Force (BBTOAS),
Selangor Standco of Culture and Malindo Air.
Suitable for families, visitors will be exposed to the
lives of the indigenous tribes as well as a variety
of fun and games. Cultural performances, arts &
crafts and delectable traditional foods make part
of the programme. Other interesting programmes
and activities include local fruits fiesta, face painting,
communal cooking, traditional dance seminar,
photography competition and also an exhibition
on traditional tribal homes of the Mah Meri,
Semai and Temuan people. The programme was
thoughtfully planned to engage the public and encourage
their participation while learning about
the culture and heritage of the indigenous people.
“Selangor is very rich in its culture and heritage. One of
the indigenous tribe, Mah Meri is one of our main attractions
in Carey Island and has been featured by The Lonely
Planet as Top Choice village in Selangor to visit. This is
indeed a stepping stone for Selangor to highlight our tribal
cultural village to the rest of the world,” said Puan Noorul
Ashikin Mohd. Din, General Manager, Tourism Selangor.
With the aim of drawing 7000 visitors to the two
day event this year, apart from the appearances
and cultural performances is the unveiling of the
newest traditional home of the Semai tribe build
at the event venue. There will also be food trucks
serving food and drinks for visitors and a photo
contest to win prizes.
