Taman Negara is believed to be the oldest rainforest on the planet. We stayed in the cabins on the forest side of the river. In the dry season, foreigners can walk through the rainforest all day on easy paved trails. Guides with college educations in the flora and fauna accompany foreigners through the dense forest. They point out details otherwise... More

We went despite the bad reviews we read about it. However we had time to kill and the Mutiara wasn't bad. So do avoid the night safaris. They take you into a denuded forest area - which had no trees and obviously no wildlife. One sighting of an owl and a very sad tree frog desperately clinging onto a stump... More

This forest is beautiful and wild. There is a village where you can find lots of agencies, all more or less with the same tourist packs. I list my reviews of 4 packs here. Night walk. That is ok when you arrive the first day in the afternoon, excited for the forest around you, and want to make friendship with... More

Taman Negara has a lot to offer anyone who loves nature. we went for the night trail, jungle trekking, canopy walk and river shooting. Meeting and interacting with the Orang Asli villagers... More

The place is amazing. I was a little bit stressed before we arrived cos everybody alredy booked sth in advance. We didnt and it was even better! In Kuala Tahan (very pleasant village) you can find a lot of fairly good hostels. We took the first one on the way up from the boat (Terasek Motel). We get a room... More
