Major Scenic Point:
(1) Forest Research Institute of Malaysia (FRIM)
FRIM offers a back-to-nature experience and the remains of an old Orang Asli settlement. The waterfall and river cutting through this forest reserve adds serenity to this luxurious landscape.
There are four jungle tracks: Keruing Trail, Rover Track, Engkabang Trail and Salleh Trail, all of which will take visitors through some spectacular secondary jungle.
The Canopy Walk, which is located 30m above the ground, offers the perfect vantage point from which to observe birds and tropical canopy flora. Those interested in experiencing the canopy walk should make prior arrangement because the number of people allowed on the canopy walk per day, is limited to 250 people.
(2) Bak Kut Teh
According to the most plausible version of the story, Bak Kut Teh was invented by a gentleman from Quanzhou of the Fujian province in China. The secret recipe was passed to a friend who later went to Klang and became the first person to commercialise and sell Bak Kut Teh. The dish went on to become a famous dish and was copied and improved many times over. So according to this version the Hokkiens were the inventors of the dish. The Teochews came later and the main visual difference between the Hokkien and Teochew version of Bak Kut Teh is that the Hokkiens use dark soy sauce and thus the soup base is characteristically darker in colour. It is up to the individual's taste buds which one tastes better.
