We were in Taman Negara Park for 3 days and it was a very different experience compared to the other holidays we have taken. We stayed in Mutiara Resort which is just across the river and also the place where you can enter to see the famous canopy walkway, the longest of its kind in the world. You can also go for different treks, visit the Orang-Asli village, have lunch while watching the flowing river among other things.

It’s definitely a place worth visiting.
