Wojciech Fedoruk Profile

Travelling is my biggest passion. I try to spend every day of my vacation time (unfortunately, limited to 26 days a year) travelling. I travel mostly with my family and sometimes solo. I love going to remote places and always plan visiting as many WH sites as possible. Although sometimes they are not rewarding, in most cases visiting WHS gives me much better understanding of the region I visit.

I find this site very helpful in planning my trips to more difficult WHS and want to share my reviews especially on rarely visited ones.

Recent Reviews Wojciech Fedoruk


Chateau de Vaux-le-Vicomte (T) Wojciech Fedoruk

Chateau de Vaux-le-Vicomte (T) by Wojciech Fedoruk

This beautiful palace is located on the way from Fontainebleau to Paris. I was quite surprised as in the rainy Sunday afternoon the palace attracted more tourists than Fontainebleau and its large parking was almost totally occupied.

Entrance fee is 17 EUR normal, 13.5 reduced, so it is quite expensive, but the palace is a private property and its maintenance is, I assume, consuming lots of resources. The total area of the palace and the huge gardens is 500 hectares, out of which the formal French garden, which requires a lot of care, is 33 hectares.

Tropical Rainforest Sumatra Wojciech Fedoruk

Tropical Rainforest Sumatra by Wojciech Fedoruk

Out of all three national parks composing this WHS, perhaps the easiest one to visit is Gunung Leuser on the border of Aceh and North Sumatra Province. Visitors center is in Bohorok, which is located around 3.5 hours by car from Medan airport (from the city of Medan it should take around 3 hours). There are no rental cars available in Medan airport so you either get a taxi or go to the city of Medan and rent a car there. I took a taxi and for a whole day I paid 1.2m INR (around 65-70 EUR). The road is very bad and leads through very populated areas, so drivers must be very careful.

FRIM Selangor Forest Park (T) Wojciech Fedoruk

FRIM Selangor Forest Park (T) by Wojciech Fedoruk

The site is in the suburbs of Kuala Lumpur, just about 10 minutes of driving from famous Batu Caves. FRIM is acronym of Forest Research Institute of Malaysia and the site is quite a big park and botanical garden. Entrance fee is 5.3 RM per non-Malaysian plus 5.3 RM for the car.

The botanical garden is quite nice, although it is not European style one with mostly exotic species. In fact there are only domestic ones. There should be much more adventurous walks, such as canopy walking tour but, according to the provided information, they are closed until further notice.

Lenggong Valley Wojciech Fedoruk

Lenggong Valley by Wojciech Fedoruk

Site „visited” in August 2017. At the beginning I must warn all WHS fans – the highlight and the only place that provides any understanding of this site – Archeological Museum in Bukit Bunuh, as well as associated excavation area, is closed for renovation until further notice. Based on what I heard from the guard, the renovation works will last at least one more year.

Gombak Selangor Quartz Ridge (T) Wojciech Fedoruk

Gombak Selangor Quartz Ridge (T) by Wojciech Fedoruk

The site is located on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur but, based on my high-level check, going there with public transport may be a hassle. I went there with rental car and my GPS  led me to a very strange place with parking for about three cars and teenagers laughing while taking a bath in a nearby river. I thought I got into wrong location, but after a while I found the start of trekking trail just near the parking. Unfortunately the trail was closed until further notice. Despite the warnings I entered but surrendered after 20 minutes - after heavy rains the trail is really destroyed.

Based on the pictures shown on the billboard at the start the trail should be nice, with caves, shaped stones etc. From the distance the ridge is however not spectacular at all, there are tens of better looking ones in Malaysia.
