I had a good time with my friends in Taman Negara. It is a great place to enjoy the nature. We did jungle trekking, rapid shooting, visiting the native's village, canopy walk and so on. We enjoyed ourselves very much. There are few local restaurants here. Choices of foods are quite limited but still great. We love the local foods and the people's hospitality.
