Travel | 9 things to do in Bentong, Pahang

by - Monday, January 15, 2018

 It's been a while since I last blogged about a local one-day trip.
Seemed like my "Tanjung Sepat" post has been one of my top posts at all time.
In case you missed it, here's the link to the post (Link : HERE).

 As you all may know, my dad's hometown is Raub, Pahang.
Always pass by Bentong but never really looked into the places in Bentong.

Hence, shall we continue with the recent One-day trip to Bentong, Pahang?


 Bentong is a municipality located in western Pahang, Malaysia. Bentong covers an area of 1,831 km² and includes the hill resort of Genting Highlands and Bukit Tinggi. It is located 80 km northeast of Kuala Lumpur, just across the main range, Titiwangsa Mountains.

 #1 : Wanton noodle

Apparently Bentong town is full of wanton noodle stalls recommended by the locals.
This was highly recommended though.

 It tastes home-made with no preservatives and MSG.
Not too salty too and look at the generous amount of ingredients.

Even the soup is not overly-seasoned, like those in Kuala Lumpur.

 #2 : Bentong Market

If you are keen in buying local produces, Bentong Market is a good place to stroll around for it.
Bentong is famous of their freshly produced Ginger as well as the bean curd.

 #3 : Chamang Waterfall

This waterfall is not recommended for swimming.
Frankly speaking, it is totally different from the nearest waterfall, Kanching Waterfall as it is not well-maintained by the authority.

No harm giving it a visit to see the magnificent waterfall though.
FYI, not much of climbing nor walking required to enter.
Yes, I was wearing slippers. *wink*




How to get to Chamang Waterfall
1. Head towards Genting, pass Gombak Toll.
2. Follow Bentong signboard, pass Bentong Toll, about 200m, turn left.
3. In Bentong town, follow Raub signboard, about 1km watch out for Camang waterfall.
4. Follow the signs, after turning off the main road it’s about 8km in and you’ll reach the park.

 #4 : Kow Po ABC 


This is a place the locals will usually go for their tea time to counter the hot weather.
Generous amount of ingredients with a scoop of their home-made ice cream is definitely blissful.

 #8 : Bentong's Hot Spring

You can opt to swim in the hot spring pool like what the locals usually do but I wasn't well-prepared for that.
Hence, I only soaked my feet into the pool to ease the pain and bruises on my foot.

 #9 : Dinner at BBQ Chan, Bukit Tinggi, Pahang

The freshness of the seafood and the creativity to boil the vegetables soup with the leftover seafood essence.

You may opt for two pax or more, depending on the present amount of people.


NZ Lamb Rack was perfectly grilled with the moisture locked in the meat.
The mint sauce is one of the highlights too as it complements the lamb rack well.
