When the hustle and bustle of city life gets too much, why don’t you pack your bags and head over to Perak Agrotourism Resort (PATRO), which is located at Sungai Galah in Tanjung Tualang. There, you can have a very relaxing weekend getaway while admiring the zen-like beauty of the 247 hectare site that includes scenic lakes and vast stretches of agricultural farms and plantation. However, be warned, this resort offers too many temptations to be ignored such as eco-adventure activities and agrotourism activities.
If you have been living in a big city your whole life, this is the best opportunity for you to get a taste of the rural or kampung life. At PATRO, you can try your hand at collecting duck eggs and making salted duck eggs, picking fresh chilies right from the trees or visiting the sting-less bee farm and sipping the fresh honey straight from the beehive using a straw. This resort plans to plant more vegetables and fruits so that guests will be able to enjoy the whole-back-to-nature experience by harvesting the crops to eat or to cook during their stay at the resort.
PATRO also has a deer farm and petting zoo, which provides children an infinite amount of joy besides being an educational experience. Here, they can get up close with cute critters such as rabbits, quails, birds and peahens. Those who enjoy adrenaline-inducing activities can try out PATRO’s outdoor sport activities such as driving the all-terrain vehicles (ATV) through a 3 km ATV track, which will take them around scenic lakes and tree groves. Be warned that the trail can get a little bumpy and maneuvering along sandy tracks can be tricky, but then again, that’s the fun of driving ATVs. There are also activities such as biking, kayaking, paintball, archery, as well as fishing to keep you busy from dawn to dusk.
Refuel at the on-site Lakeview Café where you can personally ask the chef to prepare and cook the fish or freshwater prawns that you’ve caught earlier. The specials on the menu are the durians and durian-based dishes (masak tempoyak) that must be given a try. PATRO is owned and managed by the Perak State Agriculture Development Corporation (PPPNP), and currently it has more than 10 beautifully-designed chalets, including one built like the Kutai house, which is a typical traditional house that can be found in Perak.
