Are you tired of living among the common four walled house of yours? Do you ever feel like escaping the vulnerable nature of the hustle and bustle of the urban city you live in? Do you ever wish to walk the isle of any countryside? In all of this questioning, if you ever feel like doing any of those listed above, then that is a sign that you need to take a break or perhaps go for a camping experience here in Malaysia. I guess it’s high time you rekindled your oblivious relationship with the beauty of nature and life undisturbed.

Just like the vacation routine which takes away the pleasure of your gadgets and comfort of your home. Camping and hiking is an outdoor activity meant for recreational purposes such that you get to live beyond the crevices of civilization but rather enjoy the fun that comes by nature.

On the other hand hiking involves trekking along the campsite in groups and numbers all with the sole aim of catching fun and excitement. However, camping involves the use of a tent, mostly like a primitive structure or no shelter at all. Although camping came to the limelight of public acceptance in the early 20th century, it has since evolved alongside hiking as a major vacation routine everyone would like to experience.

Of all the places in the world, Malaysia is one of the major place where camping is of best interest and maximum experience. Malaysia is known to be a tropical paradise of beauty both to the local travelers and those who love to camp out in scenic places. So, let’s look at the top 4 camping spots I have for you for right here in Malaysia, WAIT FOR IT!!!

  1. Taman Alam Kuala Selangor (Kuala Selangor Nature Park)
