Bentong.
I am sure all of you have never heard this place before. Well it is my hometown. I am lucky enough to live in a beautiful town, Bentong because it is just a small town which is surrounded by hills and mountains.
I am not actually good in writing so I might just introduce my hometown in list.
1. It's only 70 miles away from the crowded city, Kuala Lumpur. 1 hour driving.

2. Developed but not crowded as KL. U can feel really cool air at night. (I sweat all the time in KL)

3. It's FAMOUS for DURIAN! Durians from other places can never compete with the Bentong Durians even Thailand's and Indonesia's. If you come to KL and see some Durian stalls, you can ask for durians from Bentong.( Beware of getting cheated by the stall owners, If you really wanna taste the fresh and best durian, come to Bentong.)

4. Used to be famous for Chamang Waterfall. During last decade, average 2 persons got drown there each year. And some rumors say that the waterfall was haunted. ( But the scenery there is really amazing, I have been there once and I will be going again and capture some pictures and post it here) You will be totally stunned.

Well. let's get back to the title WE WENT INTO THE WILD. I did not really go to somewhere wild, just a estate in my hometown. Me and my 5 of friends was holding a BBQ party in the durian estate, and really having FUN. We spent about 8 hours there just barbecued chicken wings, roasting bread, talking and doing crazy stuff!

O.k. I will come to Malaysia in December. Travelling with my two Kids(13, 14) years old and on my way to Taman Negara I would like to stop in Bentong for one night .
...we would like to ride on the elephants in the nearby sanctuary. All tours go from K.L and I wanna go on my own, but I heard that it's better to book in advance at the park. They don't have a homepage and so........I simply don't know what to do. What would you recommend??
