Orang Utan Island - Taiping

  Went for a short trip/escape to Kuala Kangsar and Taiping few months back with my boyfriend. We skipped some of the common places such as Zoo Taiping, Muzuem and few other places at there so we end up with went to some interesting places that we have never been.

  So we went to this place called - The Orang Utan Island is one of the main tourist attractive place at Taiping. Located at The Bukit Merah Water Park. Bought our tickets with a friend of my younger sister, she was doing her internship training there. I saw a posted about the HOLIDAY SPECIAL OFFER something that only cost half of the actual price on her Facebook. The actual price is quit expensive thou. 

The Normal Price for a day tour to Orang Utan Island

  After bought our ticket we waited for the boat at the jetty almost for half an hour. They have boat to the island once for every 45mins. Here is a picture of me while waiting for the boat to arrive. 

It took around 10 to 15 minutes boat ride to arrive at the 
Orang Utan Island.

  The whole tour took us almost one and a half hour. We were accompanied by a tour guide for the whole tour.We visited their habitats and Orang Utan's kindergarten where the babies stay in it. The things we learned about Orang Utan : 

  • Orang utans are only found in Malaysia and Indonesia (Borneo). 
  • Their DNA is 97% similar to human being. 
  • They do have blood groups like us. 
  • Orang Utan drinks their urine, that helps them to get a stronger teeth. Weird fact but true

It was a truly educational and memorable experience for both of us.
