  • Enjoying mother nature here... It is just roughly 15km away from Taiping. There are several activities you can do there. The first one is strolling in the mangrove forest reserve, where you can get to see and learn some species of the mangroves. Besides, you can take a river cruise right there... The nature enthusiasts are encouraged to do so... The speed boat driver will explain to you one by one regarding the ecosystem of the mangrove forest and the life of the fishermen in the Kuala Sepetang village. The last one, of course, is watching fireflies... You can get to see some firefly right there. It is a nice experience...
  • Hidden spot for family activity in Taiping. The eagles here are more active and up close compared to the Langkawi eagle sightings. Not sure how many of them are still considered 'wild' if the boatman continues to feed them. Did not manage to go and see the fireflies but may try to next time. Bargaining is required for the local boat fares.
  • Another speeding speedboat trip too fast not enought time to take it all in
  • good place to learn about the mangrove ecosystem. however the entrance fee is quite expensive especially to foreigner.
  • A truely new experience worth trying. Great for educational trips.
