Genting Skyway

Reviewed By Mohd Taha A - Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

Very nice experience with the family .. the sceneries are beautiful .. The sound effects added to the action .. however the photographers at the riding station were taking pictures of the passengers without their consent which I found inappropriate ..
The late afternoon ride down was with the clouds all around the cable car for the first part of the journey .. Nice experience.
The new cable cars are bigger to accommodate more passengers up to 10 persons; and having wider windows for better viewing.
Overall experience is good.

Rainbow Waterfall

Reviewed By KenYap55 - Petaling Jaya, Malaysia

Was excited when reach the side after a 30 minutes of jungle road by 4x4 truck, excited with crossing the river while carrying my 3yr old boy. AFter that walking thru the rocks which bring us to the jungle trail which has a stream beside it....as i walk i realize the challenge is getting difficult especially when you have a kiddo around.
The higher you go will be more challenging...and I would say, not for the senior citizen, ppl with walking disabilities or kid below 5. It is quite dangerous on certain stretch.
But the view was extremly nice once you are up there with the cool waterfall water from the top.

Cherating River

Reviewed By Priti C - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

The river cruise was 1.5hrs. We were made to sit in a small boat with life jackets. The water was very murky but could really feel and see the mangroves up and close. The guide showed us the black mangrove snake and the monitor lizard very closely. It was good to see their animals in their natural habitat. I was really scared and thought what if they jump in our boat. But fortunately that never happened. We booked the tour through Hafiz activities something like that which costed us RM 35pp. Overall nice to experience nature at its best

Visited here as part of a half day tour and didn't find it very impressive. You walk up a board walk to a lookout tower and the views are ok. Yes there is moss along the boardwalk but really not a big.

Reviewed By Zalikha I

The management/authorities kept the place clean and maintained. The beach was equipped with restaurants, souvenir shops, toilets, changing rooms, surau, etc. However, the beach is not suitable for swimming. If you choose to walk down the trail, please beware of the monkeys. Keep away any foods/drinks/plastic bags/containers because the monkeys might grab it from you.

Cameron Highlands Jungle Trail No. 1

Reviewed By Jamie M - Derby, United Kingdom

As the 3 commenters below have written the trail has officially been closed but can still be climbed:
At the bottom - follow the right hand fork in the road uphill towards the water works. Before reaching the water tanks are some wooden steps on the right with red and white tape at the top. Don't go up these steps but instead bear left down a track which leads to a few scruffy buildings. As you get to the buildings you will see a large red sign written in Malaysian with a small laminated sheet saying 'No entry forest reserve'. Go right past this sign and follow the path along the fence of the water works. There are 2 tracks into the wood the far side of the stream with more big red notices and barbed wire. At the second of these the barbed wire has been ripped down and moved out the way so you can do the trail. Crossing the stream is a little challenging but can be done without getting your feet wet by crossing using the pipe and damaged fence.
Once past the barbed wire the track is excellent and easy to follow.
At the top, after skirting round the towers there is a black gate that you have to climb to get out. This is not challenging at all.
As described below it is worth arranging transport to meet you at the top to save the long walk down, there are no taxis there.

It's a quick, reliable and clean service. Let's be honest that makes it stand out a mile here! Loved the boat, the upstairs sun deck and the toast for sale. Never been on the other one, now never will!
