Life in the city is fun but things can get a little crazy. Even the most urban city gal needs time away from the concrete jungle. With how hectic our lives can get, we feel that it’s absolutely necessary for a little getaway.
“Shinrin-yoku” is a Japanese concept that means “forest bathing”. You do this by surrounding yourself with nature and reap therapeutic benefits like feeling a sense of calmness, better health and happiness. Shinrin-yoku is closely associated with another Japanese proverb — “kachou fuugetsu” which translates to “learning about yourself by experiencing the beauty of nature”.
So pack your bags, and get ready for a wonderful camping adventure!
Endau-Rompin National Park
Situated between the states of Pahang and Johor, the Endau-Rompin National Park is the second largest tropical rainforest in the country. The campsite is accessible by 4WD and is a popular spot for bird-watching and fishing.
Entry to the park is RM10 per person while the fee for camping is RM20. It is recommended that you hire a guide at the park headquarters as the area is home to some endangered species such as the Sumatran rhino, Asian elephant, Malayan tiger and other animals such as the white-handed gibbon, wild boar, tapir, slow loris, deer, long-tail macaques, and leopards.
