Cameron Highland

Cameron Highland used to be very far if you traveled from Kota Bharu. The old road to CH using East West Highway was KB-Grik-Kampar-CH, and that takes us about 8 hours. But, after the completion of the new highway project, you can get to CH through KB-Gua Musang-Simpang Pulai-CH. And that takes us about 4 hours only. CH offers many interesting and beautiful spots for photography. Since this is a popular tourist destination, most of the hotels are kept clean, newly painted and well decorated. They offer beautiful natural landscape and breath taking scenery. On top of that, you can take pretty nice photos with natural surrounding including insects, birds, flowers, fresh fruits, vegetables and etc. All you need is a camera and some creativity.

Bali, Indonesia

I was in Bali last year (June 2006). My perception of Bali was the same as Phuket. Nothing much except girls, pubs and night life. I was all wrong. Bali has so much more to offer than Phuket. Anyway both tour was sponsored by a company as an incentive trip. It was a full package luxury tour as claimed by the tour agent. Since it's a sponsored trip, I need no preparation except bringing along some clothing and a video camera,
Instead of just James Bond Island in Phuket, Bali offers lots of interesting places especially on sight seeing and photography. The above is taken from a Resort & Spa located facing the Rice Field. Very cooling and breath taking atmosphere.

Well, I wish I'll get more sponsor for more holiday trip...Need to work harder next time.

Bukit Keluang, Besut, Terengganu

If you are traveling from Terengganu to Kota Bharu, it might be worthwhile to divert a little to Besut. Besut is about 15 minutes drive from Jerteh. It is the same route if you are going to Perhentian Island.
Bukit Keluang is actually hills and caves along the seaside. There are a lot of bats inside the caves. Just a short distance walk and you see a resort.
Depending on the water tide, if you are lucky you can walk through one of the caves.
However, you can also walk to the other side of the cave through the bridge.
