It was a beautiful day here in KL with clear blue sky, It look like a great day to travel. I had planned to visit Kuantan for a few days to attend my younger brother youngest son's wedding on Saturday 19, March. A nephew decided to come over and drive me to Kuantan since I no longer take to driving long-distance. I guessed age is catching up and to avoid fatigue I have decided to no longer drive long-distance. So at just past eleven we left KL on my Honda with my nephew driving. It is the first time that I am not driving on this road. And I thought it would give me the opportunity to enjoy the ride to Kuantan and at the same time take some picture of the scene on both sides of the highway. The top image is that of the skyline as we passes a Palm Oil Plantation on one side of the highway. A magnificent sight indeed.
The KL Kuantan Highway passes partly through the virgin forest of the Main Range of Peninsula Malaya known as the Banjaran Titiwangsa. The forest along the way here is actually millions of years old since it was never touched by the ice age. I love driving around these area since it give me the opportunity to see all the floral and fauna that had been there longer than the country itself. It was green and green of forest all along the roads with patches of Rubber and Palm oil plantations here and there. With the highway it is much easier to drive and today's journey took us just three and half hours to get to Kuantan. On the way there were rain here and there but otherwise the journey was a pleasant one indeed.
I took a numbers’ of photos of the scenes and sharing it here for all to see and enjoy those pleasant greens of the tropical forest.
Have a nice day.
