I'm are travelling for two weeks in Malaysia on Christmas and New years. I'm nature lover so we would like to do some trekking in nature park in Borneo and/or Peninsular Malaysia. I am just wondering which National Park is the best over there? I'm also looking for best wildlife and is there any wildlife animal sanctuaries somewhere such as orangutans? Is it necessary to book a tour guide to national parks, or should I just find my way with local transportation? Anything else to keep in mind before entering national park?
Like always, I don't have any special requirements for this trip. I just would to relax, see the nature if it is possible, see local Malaysian culture, enjoy beaches and do some scuba diving. What places would you recommend? I have understood that the nature attractions over there should be awesome.
