The Tangkak District was once named the “Ledang District” and is located within the northern section of Muar. There are a lot of attractions in the nearby vicinity, making the town of Tangkak a great place to begin your explorations of Malaysia. The summit of Mount Ophir lies just a short distance away, while the ever-expanding urbanisation within the district ensures countless shops and restaurants. The area is also filled with numerous cultural and historical landmarks. Here we’ll be taking a closer look at Tangkak.
Within the region there are many townships each offering its unique blend of traditional living, cuisine and modern comforts. The nearby Gunung Ledang National Park is one of the country’s most prominent attractions, giving a glimpse of rainforest living to all visitors. You can find temples to out-reaching fields across the Tangkak District. The town should be a definite consideration.
Visitors to Tangkak will find that homestays are among your best forms of accommodation.The prices are generally lower than a 3-star hotel, while the quality exceeds that which you find at conventional providers. The opportunity to converse with the locals, receiving their advice on local sights and meals, is invaluable as well.
For those who seek an outdoor adventure, consider staying within the Gunung Ledang National Park. The lodgings at the foot of Mount Ophir are comfortable, clean and offer an experience like no other. The crystal clear sky is perfect for stargazing. If you want to rough it, then you’ll be happy to know that the park is also filled with many camp sites which are well maintained.
Two towering black Kuan Yin temples are found in the town of Bukit Gambir which is just a short distance from Tangkak. Bring your camera because the massive 18-foot statues of Kuan Yin is a sight which you will want to be able to see clearly forever.
Mount Ophir is a great place for beginners to start learning the trials of mountain climbing. The trek takes roughly five hours to complete, so set aside an entire day. At a height of 1286 metres, or 4219 feet, this is one view that you don’t want to miss, especially considering the easy nature of the hike that it takes to get there.
Yet if you feel that you’re not up to the five-hour hike, then rather relax at the Sagil Waterfall also found within the Gunung Ledang National Park. The falls may not be the highest in Malaysia, but the cool waters are definitely among the best for swimming. Pack a picnic and head out for the morning. It does not take long to reach the waterfall, although for those more intrepid adventurers, hike just a bit further to reach waterfalls of an even greater height.
Tangkak is famous for its textile industry and you can therefore find some of best deals and designs of clothing within this town. Most of Tangkak is accessible by foot and the rest of the outlying areas are typically along public transport routes. Yet you won’t need to go far as there are more than enough retailers in the city centre.
Food is another local highlight delivering delicacies such as traditional Malay flatbread served with either sweet or savoury filling. This meal locally termed Roti canai is unbeatable and has tastes to suit any palate. There is also a range of Chinese food on offer through the region. Don’t miss meals like Mee bundung and Asam Pedas.
