Being someone who has renewed interest in eco-tourism, particularly after my experiences at Sahom Valley Agro & Eco Resort, followed by Razila Adventure And Resort, I have been rediscovering many of Perak’s eco-resorts.

Just last week, I was at Taman Eko-Rimba Lata Kinjang and Pusat Rekreasi Lubuk Timah. Visiting WET-EXPO 2017, which literally came to my doorstep, I have been reintroduced to some of Perak’s hidden gems, which I have forgotten about.
