So yours truly decided to go along on the #travel2n9 Media FAM trip to Negeri Sembilan…

Facetune-20190419723893053-01-1008x755

In my opinion Negeri Sembilan is probably one of the overlooked states in Malaysia…because it is pretty much diversified in culture, rich in history and there is just so many beautiful sceneries, beaches and food….

So here I am sharing 2 fun places, 2 resorts, 2 places that does not even cost a cent to visit (except for your transport there) and a walking trail, you really should not miss out on in Negeri Sembilan…

Believe me or not.. I am myself guilty of underestimating some of these places (something like.. “ermmm, why are we going to this place”… kind of feeling before I stepped foot in and got wowed) …

Ok… lets start with the fun places…

1. The Adventurer’s Web, Nilai….

20190417_105754-01-1008x490
The Adventurer’s Web very recently open like less then 2 months ago… it offers fun and engaging activities in 3 innovative interactive zones… which are the Dinosaur Rangers, Monster House and Mini Science & Technology Discovery Center….

This is where you will scare yourself silly inside the Monster House.. The Monster House is pretty fun as you get to explore about 10 different rooms (I think) and there is 2 doors in each room.. an escape room if you think you had enough or if you decide to continue on in whatever horrors they come up with…and the rooms are really interesting!!!!

Some are cutesy.. some are scary.. some are filled with blood and gore, dead bodies littered around and body parts…

(Btw, the people who bring you the Monster House are the same ones who bring you the Ghost Museum etc in Penang)

Then head over to the Dinosaur Ranger pkace to check out the dinosaurs, excavate fossils and if you are brave enough, get chased by the aggressive T-Rex inside a maze at the Dinosaur Rangers place…

20190417_120453-01-1008x490

And learn science through the interactive exhibits related to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathemetics) which if you gonthrough the exhibits one by one you will derive a lot of fun while learning…

I loved the whispering exhibit as well as well as having so much fun throwing soft plastic balls at the zombies to kill them…

There are also workshops, camps, seminars, science shows and science demonstrations planned…

We headed to the Wild West Cowboy Indoor Theme Park that came with a 5D motion cinema, amusement rides, arcade games and even escape rooms..

Our group headed for the 5D motion cinema and we had the most stomach churning experience since we “gila-gila”/ crazily decided to take a total of 4 rides!!!! Through 4 mini movies… roller coaster rides and one haunted house tour… we were all shrieking and screaming with laughter in the cinema from the movements and experience…

Facetune-20190419587609772-01-1008x756

The building was completed in 1935 by the British and was considered the Company A First Malay Soldiers Batallion and was used from 1935 to 1941 before it was taken over by the Japanese Army…

The building structure was made from a steel frame especially brought in from England.

It was only in 2002 when it was renovated to be a museum…

Facetune-201904191172951472-01-1008x756

Belonging to the Malaysian Royal Armed Forces, the museum will bring you on a walk through history, it is surely fun seeing all the military vehicles and you get to pose and make believe… (for example… I am posing with the UN van.. so.. ok “fe-feeling” Descendants of the Sun…) and there is even a secret tunnel…(ok.. not so secret)

When I got to the place.. the first thing I saw got me squealing in excitement …

They had a few large plastic containers outside and in the plastic containers were sea turtles of various sizes (green turtle and hawksbill turtle) from babies to juveniles and an adult?

20190418_154607-01-1008x753

The people here collect and save the turtle eggs and care for the turtle eggs until they hatch..

We are not allowed to touch the turtles but just seeing them up close is such an amazing experience…
