Overnight stay at Shilinmen Leisure Home, Karak on 19-20 August 2017 with USJ chi gong friends and family members ... this is the season for durians with the mau san wong (musang king) durian weekend prices soar around RM60 to RM70 per kilogram. Durians price increased on Friday, Saturday and Sunday due to increased in demand with the influx of weekend tourists.
Our activities at Shilinmen included having a dip in a nearby stream; preparation of group dinner; karaoke session until late at night. On Day 2 morning, viewing sea of clouds and sunrise; Sungai Dua waterfall; eating of durians for lunch.
The room rate is very reasonable with an entire air-conditioned room that can accommodate 10 persons comfortably for only RM450 that includes usage of the cooking utensils and facilities. The Owner, Mr Yeong Onn Hong (杨安康), is a very friendly and helpful person; he can be contacted at 019-589 0000; for more information, Google Karak Shilinmen.
