A great escape from the city

What we say: 4 stars

FRIM (5 ringgit, non-Malaysians) has four main walking trails, as well as jogging and mountain biking tracks, wildlife watch-towers, botanical gardens and picnic areas.

The biggest single attraction is the Canopy Walkway, an 150-metre long series of suspended bridges, 30 metres above the forest floor. It is open 09:30-14:30 daily, except Monday and Friday, and can get very busy as weekends. Tickets (20 ringgit, non-Malaysians) must be bought at the One Stop Centre. The walk to the canopy requires a decent level of fitness.

FRIM is a pain to get to by public transport. RapidKL runs a bus (U13) from Medan Pasar (in Chinatown) to Taman Ehsan, which is a short walk from the entrance, but still 10-15 minutes away from the One Stop Centre. A better option is to take a KTM Komuter train to Kepong, and a taxi from there.
