When I said that I was on a self-declared holiday, many friends wondered where I was going to. I always declare a “holiday” on my birthday, although it does not work out every year. This year, it did, at least for the better part of the day.
I didn’t leave town. I was in Ipoh. I tell people my city is the best place to be, not only because it is home and definitely not because Lonely Planet says so. If you are not aware yet, this world’s leading travel guide has listed Ipoh as the sixth Asian destination to visit in 2016.
For once, I didn’t want to travel too far away, as I have had my fair share of being on the road for these past few years PLUS, I have a pile of work waiting for me to settle. So, getting away for a day, or a few long hours, would be just as great.
And so, I decided that a short getaway to The Haven Resort Hotel & Residences would be just as awesome. And it really was! Where else could I go to escape the hustle and bustle of Ipoh city and yet be so near to city amenities?
At The Haven Resort Ipoh, I was enveloped by serenity that no words could describe. I was able to, for that few hours (was supposed to be 2D/1N but then I had urgent work to see to later in the day), forget about the troubles of the world. LOL!
Those who work for themselves know what a luxury it is to be able to let go of work entirely, when the line between working hours and personal time is so vague. And to be surrounded by nature’s best, getting to admire the colourful blooms of many different flowers while butterflies flutter nearby, is an experience that is hard to beat.
If you had thought that I would write “… is an experience that money cannot buy”, you are wrong, because you too can enjoy similar “me time” at The Haven Resort Ipoh. Reservation details are enclosed below. May you have a time as wonderful as mine at The Haven!
