Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

To experience a traditional Malaysian environment, we recommend you to visit and stay at Bamboo Village, Taman Sari, and Kampung Kuang Retreat due to its surrounding nature, and farm, along with the traditional architecture that is inspired by traditional Malay home style. Though many of these are modernized, the Malaysian heritage is immortalized in its architecture and natural surroundings.
