Beside the Jarum waterfall,

Try the followings:

1)Raub Ratha curry house famous Fish head curry & also their fried Chicken. The boss even boosting their chicken is even better than KFC. Nevertheless they hv branches in KL too at Gotong Jaya & also Bdr Puteri Puchong (Yuckxx)

2) Sempelit Raub groundnuts - Try finding them in local supermarkets..Lotsa them..very difficult to find in KL.

3) Raub Durian orchard

4) Short cut going thru Raub to Ringlet in Camron Highland..(Not sure whether completed or not..just 120KM to CH! from Raub using the new shortcut road)

5) Fraser Hill..also very near to Raub ~40km only

Raub? i came from raub. actually its ntg much there. its a agriculture town with lots of plantation. no entertainment here!!!
Ratha curry house - must try the curry and chicken there. the food the raub is just ok oni. ntg special
btw, fraser hill, dont go there la, quite far.....cameron? lagi far, nid 4 hours
the waterfall also quite far, nid at least 45 min drive

but if the dinner is late, stay in raub la.....now the weather in raub is hot adi, not like in Nov and Dec, can reach 20 degree

i think ur dinner will be in restaurant Ah FAtt rite?


Added on March 12, 2009, 5:51 pmoh yea. from gombak toll to raub just take 1 hour and 10 min if u travel 100kph(no jam). usually its free flow

fyi, after bentong toll there will be a junction to raub, dont go so fast after bentong toll. then u look for raub sign.
when comming back to KL, the road to KL from bentong is tricky, ask if u dont know. dont go until u use the old road to kl. lol

thx to those who replied... i been there d and it's easy... tot it will be windy and hard to source around tho...

de total journey from bt.caves to raub is 110km and took me 1 1/2hour long on 90-110kmh... de path from gombak tol (rm5) to karak highway all de way heading to bentong. when reaching de second tol (i assumed it's bentong tol, rm3) and be prepare to turn in to raub junction. i heard after this junction, there's another way too but i dare not take the chance liow... hahaaa!

then reaching a T-junction and take a right turn all de way straight and follow the raub signboard... i'll be passing by bentong town and all de way straight again... de journey in small road takes up de time lor... it's raining too tho de time i went there... hmm... will pass fraser's hill turn-in but raub is further up... go go go... tada! reach raub town liow...

like thken said, it's nothing much there... i went there on sunday and it's kinda quiet... first thing reaching the town is tat we'll see 'Ratha Curry House'... hahaaa! but i got a dinner to attend so, din go eat de chicken there lor... hehe...

neway, thx again for those who replied... rclxms.gif

o yah, i bought the sempalit raub groundnuts too... the TF supermarkets doesnt have it... bought it at a local groceries shop...

I just want to say, it's normal. Still can't beat the ones in Lorong Selamat or the one in Swatow Lane. Off course it is way better than those served in mamak shops, laugh.gif In fact I find the ice kacang in Broga is nicer.
