This is a total jungle experience for everyone to enjoy vacation in malaysia. The boat ride to Taman Negara is an adventure itself, travelling upstream on the muddy river. In a short time, you will begin to appreciate the landscape & feel the excitement of this journey. Explore the great wilderness of the rainforest.
