Two Hours In Betong Town

After lunch on Saturday, we packed our stuff and checked out of the Hot Spring Chalet. Then I heard someone arranged to have us driven to Betong town, just around half an hour from the place we were staying. That was the best news of the day! I have never been to Betong before... and I was quite excited about the trip....

we were dropped right at the centre of the Betong town

first thing I did was to take some pictures...

we walked along one street only
cos we had only 2 hours to get what we want...

the shops along the street...

saw a bank there.. plus the many wiring...

shopping again...

two hours was quite boring actually...

nothing much to buy actually... take more pictures better..

well, 2 hours in Betong finally came to an end at 5pm..
from Betong back to Ipoh, it took nearly 3 hours..
hope to come here again next time...
I haven't tried the food and the Massage yet!!
