A day earlier, I took my bike to KLIA and saw directions leading to Golden Palm Tree Resort, Sepang. Curiosity took the better of me, so I went back and did some research about the place and checked out the Google Map.
Directions to the place
The easiest way to go to Sepang Gold Coast is by way of KLIA. At the junction of the Sepang F1 Race Circuit, you need to turn left. Follow the road until you come to a traffic light. Turn right at this junction. Go towards Sepang town which have a funny chicane at the traffic light junction. Head towards Sungei Pelek. Compared to Sepang town, Sg Pelek is many more times bigger, so if you are looking for food, this place will be a better bet. After passing Sg Pelek, be on the lookout for Golden Palm Tree Resort sign board. You will probably pass Sri Malaysia Hotel. The moment you spot the resort, you have reached your destination.
If you are starting from Klang, head towards Banting,Tanjung Sepat and then Bagan Lalang. Once you reached Bagan Lalang, look out for the Golden Palm Tree Resort signages.
From Melaka or Port Dickson.
Head towards Sepang or Sungei Pelek. Once you passed Sg Pelek, look out for the Golden Palm Tree Resort signages.
My Journey and experiences
At about 9am, I went to KLIA to check out the place with an intention of finding nice locations to shoot the airport. Since I had plenty of time, I stopped at the Sultan Abdul Samad Mosque, KLIA and took some shots.
Well my stop over in KLIA DownTown was a mistake because once I continued my journey to Sepang Gold Coast, it started to rain, so I had to seek shelter along the road after the Sepang F1 Race Circuit. Met a fellow biker and we chatted as we waited for the rain to halt.
Finally at about 1.45pm, it did stop, so I continued to Sepang looking for lunch. Did not find any interesting food stalls so continued to Sungei Pelek. There, I saw a few customers eating at the corner shop selling Fried Koay Teow, Noodle Soup and Yong Tow Foo. Actually, this shop is at the back portion that faces a motorcycle shop. I ordered the Fried Koay Teow and it was only so-so!
After having filled my stomach, I continued to the coast and found the place without any difficulty.
Basically, the Golden Palm Tree Resort & Spa sits in the centre of Sepang Gold Coast, thereby dividing the beach into two parts, the north and south beach.
Whether you opt for the north or south beaches, they are both muddy. Therefore a great place to hunt for lala, kerang or crabs.
After taken the last shot at 8pm, I left the place and went to Sg Pelek looking for food. There, I had Hokkien Fried Meehoon as dinner. Thereafter, I left for home, travelling in the darkness along the road from Sg Pelek to the KLIA, after which, the roads were brightly lit! Reached home at about 9.30pm.
Will update this thread as and when I’ve posted more photos in Flickr!
