Picnic at a waterfall
Plan a picnic and pack the kids in the car for an excursion to one of Malaysia’s myriad waterfalls. While some spots require an hour’s trek to the top, the Lata Iskandar Waterfalls (pictured) in the Cameron Highlands has a user-friendly path that won’t pose too much of a challenge to young ones. Meanwhile, Sungai Ampang near Zoo Negara in Selangor offers nearby chalet accommodation if you prefer to spend the night. Nationwide.
