Nature's Charm at Dusun Tok Wak, Baling, Kedah. | Embarking on a journey to Tok Wak Desa Orchard in Baling, Kedah was not merely a travel escapade but an immersion into an eco-tourism haven. 

Guided by the warm welcome of Mohd Akhir Ismail, affectionately known as Pak Long, this orchard unfolded a plethora of reasons why every wanderer should mark this destination on their travel map.

A Symphony of Flavors

The adventure began with a sensory feast – honey-stir-fried noodles and honey kelulut coffee. The distinct blend of honey and coffee transformed a simple meal into a gastronomic revelation. 

For coffee enthusiasts and skeptics alike, this unique concoction is a must-try, promising a delightful surprise.

Riverside Indulgence

Kopi Madu Kelulut

Tok Wak Desa orchestrated a unique riverside dining experience, elevating the ordinary to the extraordinary. The soothing sounds of the river accompanied our meals, adding an extra layer of serenity to the dining affair. The option to camp by the riverside further extended an invitation for those seeking a night under the stars.

Fruitful Bounty

Wandering through the orchard, I found myself amid a treasure trove of seasonal fruit trees. The opportunity to pluck and savor fruits straight from the trees was not just a gastronomic delight but a connection with the land and its bountiful offerings. 

It is recommended you come here during the fruit season, you'll be more enjoyable with the trip.
