Explore Bentong with Go Bentong Apps

Have you ever thought of getting a tad adventurous and have this urge to go exploring some small towns but have no idea where and how to start because there is simply no information for you to look up on the net?

Well, earlier in January we went to Tamqn Negara in Pahang and thought that Pahang has more to offer than just the well famed national park. I have always wanted to explore Bentong, a small town in Pahang. It is my husband’s late grandmother’s hometown. He is rather fond of his late maternal grandmother and told me stories about growing up with her in Bentong as a child occasionally. I never had a chance to explore Bentong, though as it is really a small town, and had no idea of what they have to offer. My husband’s childhood memories of the town is vague too and so, we’re rather bummed.

Luckily for us, the Bentong folks has come up an initiative to popularize and bringing tourists to Bentong by creating a free, downloadable travel guide apps that you can refer to should you wish to travel to Bentong. The smartphone apps is known as Go Bentong apps.
