    Taman Negara National Park, Malaysia october 2007

    Continuing on from the Perhintians Islands we will now head down to the Taman Negara National Park which is peninsular Malaysia's greatest National Park and covers 4343 sq klm.

    We left Kota Baru at 6.30 am on the train arriving in Jerantut at 1300.

    Jerantut is the nearest town on the way to the park and it is from here that one takes a 3 hour journey down the river into the park .

    I'll show you a few photos of Jerantut as it was a brilliant little town full of friendly locals and great food.

    Because it was a mixture of Muslim, Chinese and Malay there was a nice mix and feel to the place.

    Enjoy.
    Stroller is a Yerman faggot.

    Main street Jerantut

    The yellow building is called the " Hotel Sri Emas ", is the main travel agent in town and also has accommodation. They send a tout to the train station and the dude takes you here. They arrange permits and anything else you will need to get to the park, its Chinese owned very efficient ,friendly and highly recommended.

    Chinese restaurant.

    Being a lover of Asian food I spotted this restaurant opposite the train station and just had to go in and see what they had.

    Dim Sum

    To our delight and complete surprise the dude started bringing out Dim Sum.
    We just chowed down and went hard on these delicacies as it was the first time we had en counted this and at 1.50 ringit per piece it was a give away.
    As you can see the quality of this food was awesome.

    On the bus with the scanky backpackers which I am also one.

    We are now leaving Jerantut for a 45 minute bus ride to Kuala Tembeling.
    This is where we meet the boat for the 3 hour ride down river deep into the national park and is quite an adventure.

    This is where we started our river trip.

    As you can see this is no pissy little river but a major artery flowing throw the Rain Forrest and in the wet season is a raging torrent flooding much of the Forrest.
