Taman Negara is a must visit when travelling to Malaysia! It’s one of the world’s oldest rainforests and one of the most well-known hikes is the Canopy Highwalk. The rain forest is one of the best places of Malaysia for a jungle experience, together with the jungles in Borneo.


Travel in Malaysia has many rewards, but Taman Negara has to be one of the best.
