the FRIM is still inside the city but feels like it is miles away! It is a beautiful jungle park... but it is HOT so be prepared to sweat. There are a few options to get there but the easiest way seems to be by cab. When working with the cab driver sort out the best deal. They can drop... More

FRIM was a fantastic place to visit whilst in KL. We did the canopy walk and a few other trails.

The canopy walk itself was fairly bouncy due to its construction and probably wouldnt have passed... More

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

When you need a break from busy town/office life, this is the place. It welcomes you with nature sounds and fresh air, you can go for cycling, motor cross, 4x4 drive as well camping. There is also canopy walk where you can walk among the trees.

FRIM was about a half hour from KL by taxi. We negotiated with the driver to drive us there and wait for us and then take us to the Batu Caves on the way back to KL. It was a wonderful way to go and we took advantage of the cabs air conditioning. You need to purchase your tickets for... 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.
