Feberet places #1 : Belum rain forest

While life is not measured by the number of breaths you take, it is measured by how many more vacation pictures you have compared to the obnoxious neighbour with the landscaped lawn. Plump up your collection with today’s Groupon: for RM599, you get a three-day, two-night stay in a superior room plus daily buffet breakfast for two people at three-star Belum Resort Rainforest in Perak (RM1,582 total value).

Nestled amidst resplendent nature of Belum-Temengor Rainforest and Pulau Banding, the resort offers modern and spacious rooms with nature-inspired design so city slickers feel at home in many ways. With the rainforest at one’s doorstep, outdoor lovers can explore the mysteries of the welcoming jungle through the many activities offered while the choir of lapping water and animal calls along with refreshing scents of grass and flowers offer a relaxing holiday indoors.
