A visit to the 'Taman Warisan Tasek Merimbun'

Original post by nakalai.

thanks to my grandma for being my (tourist)guide this afternoon..huhu

The purpose of my visit today was to get few shots of Tasek Merimbun. The scenery was simply breathtaking, as usual. Have a look on them here. or here for more shots. So yes, I dont do reviews but you can always read from either of these sites: (they are good btw. quite accurate i would say..huhu)

Kayaking in Tasek Merimbun (besides walking along the wooden walkways or having picnic, you can go for kayaking too!)

Honestly, at the moment i dont think Tasek Merimbun is ready to be visited by anyone (esp the tourists). the wooden walkways are being removed at the moment so you cant actually go across to the 'Pulau Labi-labi' (more on this turtle-shaped island in the next post). Ahhh well... i'm guessing they are getting new planks and hopefully the walkways will be back soon, since next year will be the Visit Brunei 2008. N/theless, Tasek Merimbun is still a must-go-and-see heritage park when you come to visit Brunei/Tutong. (=

nahh enjoyy the pictures. as usual, click 'em to enlarge. and appreciate..huhu

cheers everyone, Salam.

You should visit the 'museum' at the top of the hill. Its open to the public. Theres a very nice verandah there where you can get a good view of the whole tasek. Also, theres a very nice 'nature trail' up there that anyone can follow. takes 1.5 hours though.

The biology students of UBD visited Tasek Merimbun for our conservation class last semester, and we were shown the plans for the park by the curator. The wooden planks wouldn't be constructed any longer, so no access to Pulau Labi Labi any longer. This was due to terrible damage done by tourists towards the island, and therefore to minimise such damage, and to truly make Tasek Merimbun a heritage park, trips on boats will only be done.
