Operation hours at Gunung Lang Recreational Park
The operation hours of the boat at Gunung Lang Recreational Park. Why boat? Because visitors will need to take the boat across the lake to reach the park. You can swim as well but I’m not sure if there is crocodile in the lake.

The boat will drop off the visitors here at this jetty and turn back to take more visitors. The boat driver reminded us to go down few people at once to prevent the wooden jetty from sinking. Not sure if he is kidding or not.

So we went into the Malay house to shoot some photo. It is actually empty inside but still got some ceiling fans and lights. Can also come inside here to cool down first before moving to other area.

A tower in the Gunung Lang Recreational Park
Spotted this tower in the Gunung Lang Recreational Park at Ipoh, Perak. We walked over but it is locked. Luckily it is locked because I’m not a fan of climbing.

Ipoh Egg Tart from the Egg Tart King
So we brought our Ipoh egg tart from the Egg Tart King shop for a quick picnic in the park. We don’t see any food or drink stall in the park itself,so you might want to bring your own food and drink.
