Bentong Day Trip

Earlier in May, I was so glad to be invited to be a part of the Bentong Trip along with all the travel and food bloggers. To be honest, I have never ever been to Bentong LOL, so it was my very first trip and I was so happy that the whole day was fully occupied with activities.

Gathered at 8.30 am, it took us about 2 hours to reach the destination by bus.
Bilut Extreme Park
At first stop, we were brought to the Bilut Extreme Park, a place for adventurous people who loves nature, exciting challenges and enjoying the fun of exploratory! It was great to escape from the town once a month, to get some fresh air and involve in some recreational activities in the nature.
So, Chency and I have decided to go for the outdoor archery shooting before the  ATV rides.
Unlike the usual archery I saw in Sunway Pyramid, we were having the archery shooting, surrounded by all the greenery.

Archery
It was definitely an insta-worthy place too. LOL
No worry if you are a newbie like me, as there will be a coach to guide you from gearing up with the protective equipment, raising the bow, drawing the string, aiming till shooting in the right posture.
Here's a #macamyes posture. For photo-shooting only. So, this trip proved me that I wasn't an arm-strong person, as I felt the bow was kinda heavy to me, my arm got exhausted after holding the bow for only 5 minutes.
Thus, it caused some issues in aiming. *laugh cries* This wasn't my result, but Chency's.
Honest reveal: Hmm.. I have tried 21 shots and I GOT ONLY ON SHOT ON THE TARGET. Wasn't as bad as I thought. LOL

The price range falls from:
12 arrows (1 person) : RM10
24 arrows (Max 2 persons) : RM18
36 arrows (Max 3 persons) : RM27
60 arrows (Max 4 persons) : RM40
120 arrows (Max 5 persons) : RM72
Here's the most anticipated part for me and Chency, ATV RIDES!
Even though it was already 10.30 am during our turn, our passion in the ride were still burning like the hot sun!
ATV Rides
Of course, we will never missed out any chances for photo. We got to snap a few pictures right before the coach guided us in the ride.
A candid shot of mine hehe.
It was an amazing experience for me. Since young, I have always wanted to be on the Go-Kart ride in Genting, but it was like a forever-dream to me due to the reality in height limitation. But now, I was given a chance on the ATV ride! Well, it was pretty tough at the start, but you will immediately use to it after a few round of practices on the beginner path before getting into the advanced path (palm oil and rubber tree plantation)! The advanced route was really thrilling that we may easily being thrown into the trap as the road was bumpy and uneven.
Enjoyment has a cost and all of us got sun-burnt after the 2 hours ride.

The price and packages for ATV rides are shown as below:
ATV Route A (30 minutes) : RM70
ATV Route B (60 minutes) : RM120
ATV Route C to E (90 minutes) : RM180 - RM200
Family Packages (60 minutes) : RM120
Valley Agro Park
We got really tired and hungry after the energy-consuming activities, we decided to take a rest and have our lunch at the next stop - Valley Agro Park. 
It was indeed a wonderful feast, as all the food served was so delicious!
I would highly recommend the signature dishes like Pumpkin Bean Curd 金瓜豆腐, Grilled Nyonya Style Tilapian in Foil Packets 金凤娘惹烧, that reminds me of a Thai Grilled Fish with some sour and spicy taste and last but not least, Yoke Lan Chicken 玉兰鸡.
Beside the taste of nature, Agro Valley park does provide accommodation for the busy city dwellers for a perfect serene getaway! Staying in wooden attap huts that gives you a complete natural experience, definitely stress-free living in the green landscape that surrounded by all the sound of nature.
The price range from RM50 per 2 pax up to RM270 per 6 pax.
Moreover, there are a lot of activities provided in Valley Agro Park like visiting vegetables garden, miniature animal park, fishing, camping and more.
Bee Museum
There is also a Bee Museum in Valley Agro Park! It gave us a total different experiences and views entering the mystical world of bees. 
Stingless Bees
We managed to have a closer look of the stingless bee, as well as their living environment.
Honey Collection
Stingless bees are actually living in the tropical countries. Unlike the usual bees we see, stingless bees do not sting. A perfect and safety place for a visit especially for primary and secondary schools students.
Honey Extraction
Besides, we managed to see the pure honey extraction from stingless bees, which we named it E-honey. E-honey is believed to be highly antimicrobial and has stronger medical value, as well as twice the nutrients compare to the usual honey.
Since the stingless bees produce a much smaller yield of honey, hence they are way cost-ful compare to the usual honey and of course a muh unique taste profile.
E-Honey
In addition, there are a lot of pure honeys selling at the museum.
Honey Lemon Ice
Here's a MUST TRY at the Bee Museum, the honey lemon ice, which is something we have never tried before in the market! Unique honey taste and ice texture that will boost your taste bud!
