Malaysia (T.Negara-Perhentian)

Image Our first visit in Asia and very special because we traveled with 1.5 years old Alicja . We did not know what we can expect, we only knew that it will be hot and quite exotic but what more? We took into account that we will travel with children and we should but in the same time we planed our trip to be attractive for older part of the team. We selected two destinations Malay jungle and tropical islands what was completely enough for two weeks vacation.

Image We visited night market in first day in Johor Bharu, where we could taste all Malaysian (but not only) dishes.

Image Image First meters in jungle and we learnt that jungle trekking is not easy walk.

Image Image N.P. Taman Negara one of the biggest national park in Malaysian Peninsula. It is refugee for 300 species of birds, innumerable species of insects and plants. It is hard to believe that so many species live in such jungle when you walk through tropical forest you are happy when you see snake or something different than leeches. Dense vegetation is an excellent hide for animals.

Image Image Image Green , brown and black are only colors visible in jungle. But leaf shape diversity is amazing. Target for plants is only one - collect sun rays in most effective way..
