TAMAN NEGARA IS THE OLDEST PRIMARY RAIN FOREST IN THE WORLD. RESEARCH HAS SHOWN THAT THIS RAIN FOREST HAS NEVER BEEN INFLUENCED BY ICE AGES AND OTHER BIG CHANGES IN TIME. WITH 4343 SQUARE KILOMETERS IT IS THE BIGGEST NATIONAL PARK IN MALAYSIA, SPREAD OUT OVER THREE STATES AT PENINSULAR MALAYSIA; PAHANG, TERENGGANU AND KELANTAN.

THERE’S ALSO THE FAMOUS TAMAN NEGARA CANOPY WALK; THIS IS A 510 METERS LONG SUSPENSION BRIDGE BETWEEN HIGH TREETOPS (ARGUABLY THE LONGEST IN THE WORLD). YOU CAN WALK OVER IT, AND ENJOY SPECTACULAR VIEWS AT HEIGHTS OF OVER 45 METER. A NIGHT WALK IS A VERY NICE TO-DO AT TAMAN NEGARA; BUT MAKE SURE YOU WEAR MOSQUITO REPELLANT AND CLOTHES WITH LONG SLEEVES AND LONG TROUSERS.
