When it comes to Malaysia holidays camping is extremely popular amongst travelers and locals alike. The beauty of the countryside draws people from the city and around the world, and many of them bring along their tents and sleeping bags. Because camping is such a popular pastime in Malaysia, there is a wealth of campgrounds from which to choose scattered across the country. Below are three of the best.
For the Birdwatchers
Taman Alam Kuala Selangor
This 240-hectare park is located along the estuary of Sungai Selangor. Its location makes it a prime spot to observe wading birds and other wildlife. There are over 30 species of wading birds found within the confines of the park. Campers can observe the wildlife from the many nature trails, watchtowers, and blinds within the park.
For the Adventurous
Endau Rompin National Park
This is the nation’s second largest park, and encompasses over 92,000 hectares. The park itself is one and a half times the size of the nation of Singapore. Endau Rompin National Park is one of the few remaining virgin forests in all of Malaysia, and it is home to tigers, rhinoceroses, and elephants. Because this area is so wild, campers are advised to hire a guide for their stay. Campers who enjoy an extended hike will want to take advantage of one of the two multi-day hikes available.
For Those Who Need To Relax
Poring Hot Springs
These luxurious hot sulfur springs are quite popular among travelers. Tents can be hired on a per night basis. Outdoor tubs of different sizes are available for use by campers. There is also a tropical garden, butterfly farm, orchid garden, and canopy walkway. If campers get tired of soaking, they can take a walk to the Kipungit Waterfalls or the Langanan Waterfall.
