A trip to Lost World of Tambun theme park in Malaysia

Selamat Datang ke Malaysia! (Welcome to Malaysia, 欢迎到马来西亚!)

This was my 1st visit to Lost World of Tambun, Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia. Purchased a package during the Travel Malaysia tour together with the coach package as I wanted to visit Lost World of Tambun at Ipoh for a good getaway. Lost World of Tambun has Lost World Hotel, Lost World Petting Zoo, Amusement Park, Water Park, Lost World Tiger Valley, Lost World Lupe’s adventure, Lost World Tin Valley and Lost World Hot Springs and Spa. It is a good place for families to visit and have fun!

This place is not so accessible by public buses and people may have to take taxi or book coach packages to come to this place. This place was featured on Channel 8 with Quan Yi Fong and Aloysius Pang on The Dukes’ Theme Park Challenge 公子爱挑战.

Entrance at Lost World of Tambun Theme park

I stayed in Lost World Hotel as it was more convenient for me to walk from the hotel to the theme park. The best is to have a room with the view facing the theme park than the block of houses located at the back of the hotel. The good thing is that there’s Giant located at Sunway City Ipoh and people can walk from the hotel to Giant to do shopping and makan (eat).

Hotel Room at Lost World Hotel

The hotel room rates are affordable and the bed is comfortable.

Lost World Tin Valley

History of Tin mining in Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia.

This reminds me of the Channel 8 drama – Our Journey A Voyage 《信约:唐山到南洋》where Li Nanxing, Elvin Ng starred in the drama.

You can see a lot of interesting history about Ipoh in Lost World Tin valley.

Elephants were used for the transportation of tin ores.

Dulang washer – to ‘wash’ of the sand and get the tin ore. Not an easy thing to do so after trying. People will need a lot of expensive to shake and swirl the pot to get the tin. Does it reminds you of Jeanette Aw’s Character 林鸭子 Lin Yazi in Our Journey A Voyage 《信约:唐山到南洋》 as a dulang washer. Dulang washing was usually done by Hakka women.

Learn more facts about tin, tin mining and Dulang washer. I did not expect that Dulang Washer needed to pay to buy a pass to pan for tin ores.

Time for a rest at the Dulang Teahouse and know more about the tin mining history as Ipoh’s a famous city known for its tin mining activities.

There is also Lost World Adventure Park near the tin valley area. Booking is required.

There is also Lost World Animal Care Centre to take care of sick animals.

It will be good to come to Lost World Petting Zoo and see animals.

Lost World Water Park

Tried the lazy river and the water slides (sorry that I do not have the photos as I locked my camera in a locker)

I enjoyed the water slide rides and had fun then.

Best to get slides to enjoy the water sliding rides!

I did enjoyed myself with the hot spring as its mineral hot spring water consists of a lot of minerals and good for health.
