  • Its a dam, a big wall across the valley. Malaysia has a water shortage and the reservoir was less than 40% full. You can walk up the steps in the centre of the dam and get a view down to the sea but....  more »
  • Quiet, unpopular attraction but with very picturesque view of a lake. Peaceful site also with a broad, long road for photo taking.  more »
  • Beautiful place, I went there with my friend and it felt like a place where people can enjoy the view in silence. The wind on that day made the experience much less serene but it was cooler. The sunset was the highlight of our day.
  • This is such a serene place. I’ve been to a few dams and Teluk Bahang Dam is one of the TOP of my list. A very photogenic place where my family spend longer then expected. It’s not overly crowded like some other over rated sites. Definitely a place where one can come meditate and contemplate and enjoy the beauty of nature.
