Meet 155 years old crocodiles @ Teluk Sengat Crocodile Farm

"What? Visiting crocodile farm again? What's so special with the crocodiles? I just visited the crocodiles not along ago in Paya Indah Wetlands, Selangor." That was what playing in my mind when my friend suggested me to visit the crocodile farm when traveling to Desaru, Johor. 

Nevertheless, the place does not disappoint me as I have gained a lot of knowledge from the owner's sharing. This crocodile farm is located at Teluk Sengat, about 30 minutes driving distance from Desaru. 

Teluk Sengat is located at the end of Sungai Johor. Teluk Sengat means "thorny harbour" in Malay. It was said that ancestors had to avoid a kind of fish with thorns on their backs and underwater brambles before they could go onshore and later settled in Teluk Sengat. Teluk Sengat Crocodile Farm is established since 1950 and opened to the public in 1997. The farm spans across 10 acres and is famed as the largest crocodile farm in Peninsular Malaysia.

Must Visit Place in Desaru @ Desaru Fruit Farm

I never thought it is so fun at Desaru Fruit Farm perhaps I'm a city girl who never lives in kampung. Desaru Fruit Farm has so much to offer than only a fruit farm visitation. Occupying an area of 100 acres planted with more than 100 varieties of tropical fruits, the farm is awarded many times by tourism. The China show " 暑假去哪儿" also filming at this place. I never heard of Desaru Fruit Farm until someone suggested me to pay a visit. In my opinion, it is fun, educational, healthy and hearty trip to Desaru Fruit Farm. Why I say so? You gonna read till the end!
