8D7N Taman Negara & Pulau Perhentian

This tour offers you a view of the country's rich and diverse natural beauty - the awesome rain forest, one of the oldest in the world and the scenic beauty of one of the many islands around the coast of Malaysia.
 

Taman Negara offers a host of activities for everyone - from those who need a bit of adrenalin rush and some physical exertion to those who are intent to just enjoy what nature has to offer. You wont be disappointed.
 

Taman Negara is considered to be one of the best bird watching spots and local species include Drongos, and the Pied Hornbills. Butterflies are relatively abundant,but collecting them is forbidden. So if you are a nature enthusiast come ready with your camera and sketch-pads if you are artistically inclined. Besides exotic birds there are loads of brilliantly gorgeous wild orchids in this National Park.
 

Take a walk in the dark jungle which can be quite scary, as many unfamiliar sounds can be heard. Have a canopy walk and then trek the jungle where the guide will show you plants, species of fungi, rattan, liana trees and others, and their commercial and medical values. You will have the opportunity to observe a settlement of Orang Asli or Aborigines and learn from them - how to produce fire using Meranti wood and rattan, how to kill birds or other creatures by poisonous ‘sumpit’, and how to get safe drinking water from the liana trees.
 

Perhentian Besar (Big Perhentian) and Perhentian Kecil (Small Perhentian) are palm-fringed with white sandy beaches. The reefs and crystal clear water are host to a wide range of coral, sea-turtles, jellyfish, small sharks and reef-fish. The islands are also covered in coastal tropical jungle where there are few interior foot-trails and no roads.
 

The sheer beauty of Pulau Perhentian makes it one of the top destination for tourists. There are a wide range of activities to choose from such as swimming and snorkeling which are the far most popular tourist activities. The water is shallow with lots of rays, cuttlefish and parrotfish in most of its beaches. For diving you could go to northwest Perhentian Kecil where you will find a group of small rocky islets.
