Matang Mangrove Forest Reserve, Taiping Reviews
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.
A good place to attract tourists, so must upgrade facilities. People pay to go in so expect at least clean toilets. #localguide
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.
Good place for relaxing but the maintenance of facilities are not that satisfied
