We stayed at Petang Island Resort for 4 days. The boat rides were as much fun as the dip in the lake. The water could sometimes be so still that it looked like glass. I love looking at the protruding top of the trees above the water surface and the mystical clouds amongst the hill sides. The lake is very... More

Went here for a fishing trip and it seems that like other part of Malaysia, there are too many independent agent and boatman. I wished that places like this had a system in place that could ease everyone.

It is the biggest man- make lake in Southeast Asia. We explored mountains, islands, waterfalls, caves. We went trekking at Mount Padang. Also went island hopping. Not forgetting that we also visited Bewah cave, spectacular sights in this limestone cave. We felt relax under the beating from the water pouring down from the waterfalls.

I like the place, the greens, the birds, the insects! The construction was pretty noisy. Apart from that the place is great.
