Kuala Kubu Bharu (KKB) stands out for the mere fact that it is located at the foothills of the Titiwangsa Mountain Range in Selangor. This means, cool weather, ice-chilled waterfalls and enough nature to take your breath away. Underestimated by much of the population, here is a one-day itinerary for your perfect getaway at KKB.
When you first get here, you’ll want to try the local favourite for a tasty breakfast. We recommend the Kedai Makanan Hailam Sun Sun Nam Cheong. Here you can fill up on their staple dish which is a favourite among locals; a cup of Nanyang coffee with toasted bread. It’s simple but hearty which will create the perfect start of your trip.

After breakfast, you’ll want to do something super fun to create the perfect ambiance for the rest of your trip. This is your chance to experience the Tandem Paragliding Flight available at KKB.

For lunch, we recommend the Kedai Makanan Teo Kee that is famous for their traditional Teochew cuisine as well as the owner’s eccentric way of combining traditional cuisine with modern times.
