It is end of 2016, I decided to go back hometown to spend time with my parents for 4 days 3 night. This is the longest period I stay at home besides Chinese New Year.
The most excited thing about going home besides seeing the oldies, I love nature, food and bike! I have a very unique daddy whom likes nature and he is also active in local community. He started to bike since 2009/2010. Thus, bike is a MUST activity back home!
Yan is a beautiful place and I am so proud of this place that has beautiful mountains, waterfalls, paddy fields, fish villages, fresh seafood and more......
Rarely, I will tell my friends about my hometown. Hope you like will Yan after reading this. Welcome to drop me a message here or Facebook, I am happy to talk about it more!
Let's bike, go!
Depart at 6.50am from home with mom and dad.
7.05am : sunrise behind Gunung Jerai.
7.25am : Fish village in Dulang Kechil.
Yan is one of the great spots for fishing Ikan Tenggiri (mackerel). Many non-local people came here to out to the sea to fish. Boats are available to be rented but you may need to contact the boat owner earlier.
7.50am : sunrise & Gunung Jerai from Pulau Bunting.
8.30am : On the way back, Dad met his old friend whom rears a lot of goats, chickens, ducks and cats.
One of his baby goat. Mehhhhh......
We reached home at around 9am. We had a quick breakfast, then departed to Batu Hampar, another waterfall; because dad wanted to show me the gigantic trees!
It isn't very safe to bike there because not many residents live around that area compare to Seri Perigi waterfall & Titi Hayun waterfall. To be safe, better go with a car and a big group of people.
9.30am : The second gigantic tree.
9.45am : Dad brought me to this Salak Denai Chalet, a kampung style design where each chalet has a private pool. Bigger chalet for big family has a small and a big pool. The owner and the family members built all the houses and also the pools. He was an army before and he is very smart in sourcing the water into the pool from the waterfall nearby.
Besides, it is very hard to book the chalet especially during peak season. I like the place, very private, near to nature and all the facilities are there including BBQ. It indeed a great place for family and friends to gather together.
10.15am Local Malay laksa as second Breakfast on the way back home.
