Bahau is the principal town of Jempol District, Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia. The town's name is believed to have been derived from a Chinese phrase. Bahau is literally translated as "Horse's Mouth" while the nearby town, Mahsan means "Horse's Body" in Cantonese. Bahau is a small town located almost in the middle of Negeri Sembilan. It is a pretty popular town among the locals as it is surrounded by many small villages, including Federal Land Development Authority (FELDA) villages area. You can find rubber trees and the process of rubber tapping in Bahau. From Bahau you can easily go to Genting Highlands via Bentong in about 1 hour time. Segamat in Johor is just about the same distance. The name Negeri Sembilan means 'Land of the Nine States' after the nine districts, each with their own chieftain, which used to make up the state. Borders have shifted over the centuries and districts re-organised so that today there are seven districts in Negeri Sembilan, namely Seremban (formerly Sungai Ujong), Port Dickson, Rembau, Jelebu, Kuala Pilah, Jempol and Tampin.
The state is home to Malaysia's Minangkabau culture, a community originally from West Sumatra who settled here in the 15th Century. The Minangkabau are famous for their unique and elegant architecture with curving, ornate rooflines whose points are said to resemble buffalo horns. Their society is traditionally matrilineal, meaning that wealth and surnames pass down the female line, although this community, numbering around 300,000, is nowadays fully integrated with the rest of the Malay population. The ruler of Negeri Sembilan is known as the Yang di Pertuan Besar (He Who Is Greatest) instead of Sultan as in other Malaysian states.
If you are traveling by air, nearest airport is the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (IATA: KUL, ICAO: WMKK) is an international airport, which located in Sepang, Selangor. Both terminals, KLIA and KLIA2 airport is located about 2 hours from the Seremban.
It is very easy to get to Bahau by car. The North-South PLUS Highway is a modern toll road that runs from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur. Seremban is an exit off the highway. You could also use Route 1, which is toll-free, but slower, as it goes through some small towns. Be aware, however, that’s a single-land highway, and being stuck behind a slow-moving vehicle is a real possibility. Driving around in Bahau itself is easy enough as the downtown area is relatively small.
Sri Menanti is the royal capital of Negeri Sembilan. This former royal palace, built of wood about 110 years ago without using a single nail, has been a museum of royal regalia since 1992 and contains interesting displays of costumes, furniture, weapons and other paraphernalia.
Port Dickson is a popular beach resort due to its close proximity to Kuala Lumpur.
Only 884 metres high, it provides a good workout and excellent views from the top. It is easily accessible for a day trip from Kuala Lumpur.
This mountain is even closer to Kuala Lumpur and is a popular climbing spot. It is a similar height to Gunung Datuk and quite an exhausting walk.
This is one of Negeri Sembilan's highest peaks but not so popular with day trippers.
