  • 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.
  • Entrance was not free. Rm 5 per person, car park RM 2. The park can be better.
  • Its a best place to check it out during morning or evening especially if you're enjoy a long distance walk and calm environment. We made a mistake of coming here during noon (It was hot but luckily there were lot of trees shaded the path). The place is gorgeous for a nature lover but it was a bit of a run down. Please be extra careful while walking using the path as some of the woods went missing.
  • suitable for those who loves mother nature. entrance is free.
  • This place is a must for nature lovers. Its a mangrove forest with a walkaway for exploration. But bear in mind, the exit might not be the same as the entrance. We had to walk in the hot sun back to where we parked. Still, it was worth the walk as the place is beautiful and well maintained. Best visited during the morning or evening. We visited during the afternoon as it was the only time available for us so it was hot in some places where there were no shades. The ticket prices are RM5.00 per adult & RM3.00 for warga emas.
