As for us, we went for lake tour by boat.There are numbers of packages and we took a "melawat 12 lautan & melawat perkampungan orang asli" package that cost RM60. The package is for 4 pax and additional passenger will be charge extra RM15 per pax.

dapatlah tengok teratai sikit2

We were a bit unlucky because it was not lotus season. August is the best month for sight seeing as the lake will be covered with bunga teratai :)

At the jetty, you can see a lot of lampan fish (if i was not mistaken). So korang bolehlah bagi makan kat ikan2 ni sebab diorang jual makanan ikan as cheap as RM2 per tupperware. awesome kan!

Kampung Tanjung Puput-rumah orang asli jakun
