The Lotus Pond Near UTAR Campus Kampar

There is a beautiful lotus pond near to the UTAR campus  in Kampar.  The 3-storey high houses in the background are popular among students from KTAR and UTAR. Many of the units are managed by Danish House but they are some houses which are individually owned and occupied by the home owners or rented out. The whole area is called West Lake. From our experience, Danish House is good choice for students' accommodation as they are properly managed and they provide adequate and efficient service (e.g. cleaning services, laundry, broadband internet access). Moreover, it is a gated and guarded enclave. However, the prices for food and accommodation here are very expensive, or should I say the most expensive in Perak state. It is like staying in a hotel resort! Pity the parents who are financing their children through tertiary education.

The most economical and common mode of transportation for students here is by bicycle as the buses are few, far between and always overcrowded. Of course, there are some lucky ones who own motobikes and cars to commute.

UTAR stands for University Tunku Abdul Rahman
KTAR stands for Kolej Tunku Abdul Rahman (a college)

I hope you can see the reflections of the blue sky and white clouds on the water.
