HomeTeamNS’ Auto Adventure Interest Group (AAIG) is hitting the road again after a two-year hiatus. Founded in 2004 with the aim of bringing together HomeTeamNS members who are petrolheads, AAIG has organised numerous road trips to Malaysia including Terengganu and Cameron Highlands.
This time, AAIG members will be exploring Kluang and Bekok in Johor on Sept 3 and 4, 2022 via a guided drive. The journey to Kluang will begin at the HomeTeamNS Bukit Batok clubhouse at 6am. It’s the perfect weekend getaway up North to take a break from all the hustle and bustle!
SIGHTS TO BEHOLD
The two-day, one-night Kluang-Bekok Drive, will feature shop-till-you drop stops as well as chances to take in Malaysia’s natural beauty.
Coffee lovers can enjoy the aroma of freshly-ground coffee beans at the Kluang Coffee Powder Factory, and sip Television Brand coffee. The factory was founded in 1966 by Mr Goh Ting Tor at Jalan Mersing, with the aim of uniting family and friends over a cup of quality coffee.
Members in search of retail therapy will enjoy the shopping break at AEON BiG Kluang, before resting and recharging at Merdeka Hotel, Kluang for the night. Bekok Town’s famous street art will also offer numerous Insta-worthy moments.
Adventurous members will enjoy the visit to the Gunung Lambak Water Park/Recreational Park and Bekok-Takah Pengkoi Treehouse and Waterfall. Escape the heat and humidity by taking a dip in the natural pool surrounded by diverse green foliage and soak at the cooling waterfall!
Wind down at the Hakka Heritage Gallery at Bekok – where visitors can take in the area’s rich cultural heritage and historically significant vintage and antique artifacts.
