Postcards from Around Malaysia : Taman Negara

Malaysia’s national park is one of the world’s largest tropical rainforests which definitely makes it worth a visit! Located about 300km from KL, it takes approximately 4 hours to drive there but there are buses too, or you could arrive in style by boat up the river!
A complete change of scenery awaits you as you get back to nature, stay in a little log cabin, and enjoy the flora and fauna around you! For this trip, don’t forget your mosquito spray, plenty of bottled water, and it’s always best to have a change of clothes on you!


When you are in the area, don’t miss out on:

The infamous Canopy Walkway

Rapid shooting

Visit an Orang Asli settlement

Jungle trekking

Night Jungle Walk

Other places that might interest you but that we didn’t do include:

A boat cruise to Lata Berkoh 

Go caving at Gua Telinga

Animal observation / bird watching

  1. Hi there! My family (we have two littles, 2yr and 1yr) is coming to visit Malaysia in October, from our home in Bangalore, India. (We’re Americans living in India.) We are planning to see Kuala Lumpur, Taman Negara, and Langkawi. Just wondering what you’d recommend as the easiest way to get to Taman Negara without breaking the bank (i.e. using a private taxi) with littles…are public buses nice in Malaysia?? Okay for a four hour ride? Any advice would be much appreciated!

    1. Hi! Thank you for contacting me! Yes, Taman Negara is about 4 hours away so it’s important you’re comfortable. Public buses are not necessarily that commonly used but, staying as we did in Mutiara Taman Negara, there was a daily shuttle from downtown KL to the resort! Not sure if you’ve booked your hotel yet or not, but also check what the hotels offer on the transportation side of things, as it’ll make things a lot easier for you, Sarah
