MUTIARA TAMAN NEGARA

Expatriate Lifestyle - - Best Of Malaysia -

Taman Negara is one of Malaysia’s top travel des­ti­na­tions and cov­ers over 4,300 square kilo­me­tres of vir­gin jun­gle. It is home to one of the old­est de­cid­u­ous rain­for­est in the world at ap­prox­i­mately 130 mil­lion years old. The park is spread over three states – Pa­hang, Tereng­ganu and Ke­lan­tan – with the Mutiara Taman Negara Re­sort lo­cated in Pa­hang. For­merly known as the King Ge­orge V Na­tional Park, it was re­named Taman Negara (roughly trans­lated as ‘na­tional park’ in Malay) af­ter the coun­try gained in­de­pen­dence in 1957.

Ac­com­mo­da­tion at this re­sort com­prises a va­ri­ety of fam­ily rooms which are also ideal for groups, bun­ga­lows, chalets and if you’re feel­ing par tic­u­larly ad­ven­tur­ous, tents! Vis­i­tors come here to ex­pe­ri­ence the in­cred­i­ble trop­i­cal jun­gle and the re­sort has taken steps to en­sure there’s as little im­pact on its sur­rounds as pos­si­ble, in­clud­ing hav­ing dim light­ing and util­is­ing nat­u­ral and biodegrad­able ma­te­ri­als.
