When you are tired of the city, just go for a walk to FRIM. This "jungle" is close to the Kepong Sentral train station, taxi costs RM 7.00 (RM 10.00 in case you are not lucky with negotiating). Entrance fee is RM 5.00. At the information center you can also buy the tickets for the Canopy walk, however it is... More

A central park or a hyde park is not suitable in Kl due to the extreme humidity which makes a stroll or a picnic in the pakr into a najor sweat work. Hence the Forest Research Institute(FRIM) would fit the bill as the real park of KL as it is what a park suppise to be in the equatorial climate..a... More

If you want to experience a bit of jungle and you are in KL go to FRIM. If the canopy walk is open you can even get a tree top view of everything.

For intermediate hikers, this is one of the best training ground. While the terrains aren't extremely challenging, neither are they a walk in the park. Try to cover all the trails, which will be about 16km to 18km, depending whether one takes any detours. At a moderate pace, that will take about 3.5 to 4 hours. Good place to start... More
