Belum Rain­for­est Re­sort

Pu­lau Band­ing, Gerik (05 791 6800/www. belum­re­ This much-re­spected eco­tourism des­ti­na­tion sits on the un­spoiled land of Pu­lau Band­ing at the edge of the Belum-Te­men­gor rain­for­est. Ac­com­mo­da­tion comes in the form of at­trac­tive suites, tra­di­tional chalets and even a house­boat. Sim­ply re­lax to the sounds of the for­est and lake or sign up for one of the raft of ad­ven­ture pack­ages and search for the elu­sive raf­fle­sia, visit a tra­di­tional Orang Asli vil­lage or try to catch sight of the area’s wildlife. This is one for fam­i­lies with older chil­dren who can get in­volved in the na­ture ac­tiv­i­ties on of­fer but eas­ier walks are avail­able if you have es­pe­cially ea­ger young kids. There is also a re­lax­ing boat ride that the whole fam­ily can en­joy to­gether. In­doors, there’s not much to en­ter­tain the kids but there is a play room with some tra­di­tional games like con­gkak and ting ting. Let the re­sort know if you want to stay at their camp­site, around 20 min­utes’ walk from the lobby.
