Forests in the Kenong Rimba Park are believed to be about 130 million years old. The park covers an area of 128 sq. km with pristine tropical forests which share a common eastern and northern boundary with the larger national park of Taman Negara. Although accessible to the public, a large part of the park remains unexplored by humans. This is where you will truly enjoy the unspoilt wilderness, magnificent limestone caves, cascading falls, clear streams, giant trees, a plethora of flora and fauna and, a myriad of birds and insects. A variety of wildlife namely elephants, tapirs, tigers, panthers, flying foxes, sun bears, mouse deer and sambar deer, macaques, monkeys and gibbons also make these forests their dwellings.

During the 19th century, Cameron Highland was a popular spot for the British colonialists to retreat to from the heat and humidity of the lowland. Located at 1,500 m above sea level, the cool temperature and undulating hillsides provide perfect conditions for growing strawberries and tea. Today, the hills are covered with the iconic and beautifully-manicured tea plantations which look like carpet that stretches from miles and miles into the distance. A large percentage of Malaysia’s fresh temperate vegetables and flowers are grown in the highland and trucked down every morning to the cities. Much of the colonial character remains today and its English charm can still be seen in the architecture.

Off the coast of Perak state is a small cluster of islands with the largest and most developed being Pangkor. Pangkor Island is dotted with fishing villages along the eastern coast while colourful coral reefs are situated around some of the smaller islands. Pangkor is famous for cuttlefish and anchovies that are caught offshore and much of this is dried and salted as snack food which is very popular with the locals. There is a lot to do on the island – visitors can enjoy the tropical sun, hire a boat for fishing, enjoy jet skiing, snorkeling and, rent bicycles or motorbikes to travel around the island.
