Our family took a trip to the FRIM to escape the hustle and bustle of Kuala Lumpur city and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.
We decided to catch a train to Kepong Central Station and then took a Taxi to the FRIM.
The centre is well set up with excellent signage throughout and well laid out trails. The canopy walk was certainly the highlight with magnificent views of the forest canopy and floor as well as views right back into the centre of Kuala Lumpur. The canopy walk costs a small additional price to the entry fee but is certainly worth it. Tickets for the canopy walk must be purchased at the visitor information centre prior to making your way to the start of the canopy walk.
Both of our children managed the walk with ease with our youngest being 5 years old (he led the way down the hill). After we completed the canopy walk we decided to take the short but steep track down to the picnic area. The track was great fun with lots of stream jumping and the occassional small waterfall but certainly nothing too dangerous if you take your time.
A couple of small Cafe's are located near the picnic area and these sell cold drinks, iceblocks as well as a nice little selection of local food. We had some of the local food here and it was actually some of the best that we ate on our trip. The prices were also very reasonable.
There is plenty to explore within the grounds and we only wish we had allowed more time to see more of the facility.
A great day out and a wonderful way to get a taste of Malaysia's rainforests.
