    What to Do in A'Famosa Resort

    Alor Gajah doesn’t have much in the way of exciting attractions and activities. In fact the most notable attraction here is the A’Famosa Resort, which is a hotel with an on-site indoor and outdoor theme park as well as an international championship golf course. There are several theme parks within it including Animal World Safari, Water World and Cowboy Town. This resort is the only one in the region that can truthfully claim to ‘have something for everyone’ as they have such a wide array of interesting activity options, be it for the avid golfer, animal lover, water-sports enthusiast or for those who simply want to kick back and relax.

Animal World Safari

Animal World Safari is spread over 60 hectares and comprises more than 150 species including camels, elephants, giraffes, lions, tigers and zebras. However it must be said that animal lovers won’t necessarily be happy with the shows which are basically performances of an array of critters dressed in human clothing, aping human activities.

Cowboy Town

Entertainment is the name of the game at A’Famosa Cowboy Town. Boasting an old west vibe, the rustic buildings house a children’s theme park along with restaurants, a shopping village and even a beer garden with cowboys, cowgirls and country songs – all a permanent fixture here.

Fishing

Avid anglers can cast a few lines at the well-stocked A’Famosa fishing pond – an extension of one of the golf course's numerous natural lakes. Some of the fish in this lake include the patin, haruan, tilapia, keli and jelawat. Fishing rods are provided or you can bring your own.

Golf Course

Also within the A’Famosa Resort is a 27-hole golf course that is rated in the country’s top ten list. This lovely trio of nine-hole tracts was crafted by Australian golf course architect Ross C. Watson. The greens are spotted with undulating terrain, mature trees, giant boulders and pristine waterways that all give it a truly natural setting for a round of golf.

Horseback Riding

Another interesting activity at A’Famosa is the equestrian club which boasts a fair collection of thoroughbred horses. Riding lessons are available but if horseback riding is not your cup of tea, then hop into a horse-drawn carriage for a romantic drive through the resort’s countryside.

Microlight

Since the beginning of powered flight countless people have been seduced by the idea of taking to the skies, yet doing so affordably was the biggest obstacle for most. As a result, aviation authorities soon came up with lightweight, slow-flying aircraft also known as microlight planes. These aeroplanes – available at A’Famosa Resort – are a good way to feel the exhilaration of being free as a bird.

Paintball

Paintball is swiftly turning into a sport that is all the rage around the globe at the moment. A’Famosa Resort has an attractive paintball park where teams can battle it out to ‘capture the flag’, ‘rescue the hostage’ or ‘protect the president’.

Water World

Even though the whole place is a little tourist-tacky, you’d be hard pressed not to have fun at the 20-acre Water World. For a true adrenaline rush try out the Seven-Storey-High Speed Slide or you can choose to simply lounge on an inner tube as you go around the theme park on the Lazy River. There’s even a man-made beach with a wave pool.

  • Opening Hours: 11:00 – 19:00 Monday – Friday; 09:00 – 20:00 weekend & public holiday.
