This was a great way to get out of the city and explore Malaysia from a different perspective. Happy Yen is an extremely knowledgable and thoughtful individual. I had such a great time learning, sharing stories and hearing his endless love for nature and life. It's a different kind of tour. He pushes you to think outside the box. The... More

This was one of the most interesting tours I have done anywhere. Yen is passionate about his love of nature and how it relates to life. You are challenged and encouraged during the trek through some beautiful country. It was delightful to experience authentic Malaysian meals and enjoy good company.

Yen opens your mind to spiritualism without any religious labeling or bias. He introduces you to authentic indian and malaysian cuisine and provides an easy to understand summary of Malaysia's history. He is a wealth of knowledge and i think everyone could come away from his tour having learnt something

This is an unusual experience and it is hard to explain what it entails. Yen is passionate about what he does. He is a kind person and his love for nature definitely shines through. Swimming at the waterfall was a personal highlight and his knowledge of the flora was exceptional. Go, be open minded. It is one of those days... More

Great tour, definitely the best value for money experience in Malaysia. HappyYen will take you off the beaten track to rural and suburban Kuala Lumpur to get the most authentic Malay experience on offer. Every part of the tour was enjoyable and enriching. He will push you outside your comfort zone and you won't regret it. You will learn a... More

It was an interesting trip with a lot of insights into Happy's perspectives. Unfortunately, me and my girl are so far from religion and already focused on a lot of topics he raised, that there were not many things new to us. But we therefore had some options by ourselves we would have loved to discuss with him. Indeed he... More

Happy Yen's Self-Awareness in the rainforest tour was a tremendous experience, highly recommended to all. The day included a brief cultural immersion in Hindu, Buddhist, and Malay culture and a moderate trek through the rainforest to a beautiful waterfall, with commentary and explanation along the way. Happy Yen himself is a spirited and educated man with a great deal to... More

We were interested in doing a jungle trek and getting out of Kuala Lumpur for the day. Never having done jungle trekking before, we decided to hire a guide. I emailed Happy Yen on a Wednesday or Thursday and had a trek booked for the following Sunday! He was very accommodating with our schedule and we were excited to have... More
