Bukit Merah Lake Town Resort
The Lake Town

The name might be familiar but many may not have been to this lake resort. Most resorts are by the sea. This one, to my observation, is the better of the few lake resorts.

The lake is man made. The British first constructed a dam across the Krian River tributary to provide irrigation to the surrounding padi fields. It was a success and Krian District became the second largest padi cultivation area after the plains of Kedah. The dam has since been upgraded and the lake now covers an area of about 7000 acres.

Even the KTM Railway track now cuts across the northern portion of the lake. I wish I had the chance of capturing the railway on camera as it traveled across the lake. It must be quite a view.
