5-in-1 Green Village Eco River Resort, Pasir Salak, Perak
This is an excellent place to retreat and destress, .... a hidden treasure far, far away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Situated alongside the Perak River, the resort is home to uniquely designed chalets. The architecture of the chalet reflects the Malay heritage of Perak. The intricate carvings of the roofs and walls as well as the interior design of the wooden chalets offer a relaxing place to sleep and rejuvenate. Added to the tranquility of the resort is the fast-flowing Perak River. Fishing enthusiasts would love this place as the resort has a special structure overlooking the river to fish 7/24 if you are a guest - fresh water prawns (udang galah) and indigenous fishes (baung, patin, lampam) are the rare catches. Third, environmentalists too would gush as the pristine and well kept area where flora and fauna are still untouched - storks, egrets and hornbills are common around here. Fourth, Perak's history is just next door, the hidden treasure which is the Pasir Salak Historical Complex. Even though the Complex is still under renovation and closed to the public after the major flooding in 2014, the lawns of the Complex draw visitors to view village houses and other amazing buildings that are purely Perak! History and Britain's initial colonialisation of Malaya is embedded here in Pasir Salak. This is also the location where the first British Resident, J. W.W. Birch was killed and monuments were erected for Perak warriors and Birch. Another must-see location is a grave in memory of Si Puntum which is opposite the Complex. Other attractions within walking distance are the Perak History Gallery and the Pasir Salak Mosque (see the pics). Seriously, the Pasir Salak Green Village Eco Resort is a place to visit more than once!
