  • The board walk has just been replaced and really is something to experience. Such a good job, and walking through the mangrove forest is a real treat on a sunny day. A wonderful experience and well...

  • A really well maintained mangrove forest in Malaysia. The ticket is RM5/adult and parking fee RM2. The trail is refurbished and repainted so you can have some good photos. There are some chalets provided for those who want to have a stay in the forest. We can spot some birds and reptiles in the forest, but not monkeys. There are some information guidelines across the trail when tourist reached to certain parts of the forest.
  • Really interesting place especially for nature lovers and bird watchers. About 25 minutes from Taiping definitely worth a visit if staying there or even passing along the nearby AH2 if you want a break. Very quiet even at weekends so good place to escape the crowds too. I think 3rm for Malaysian adult plus 2rm for car (pretty unlikely you'd be walking there tbh) but 15rm for foreigner which is a big difference - more as a percentage than I've ever seen in years of living here. However, the boardwalk is well maintained at least currently and I hope the money goes back into the project so I didn't really mind. You can even hire chalets and stay If you want though obviously it's pretty basic and no food stalls or anything at the place itself.
