A forest to cherish in Tangjung Tuan

Fortunately, Tanjung Tuan has been gazetted as a forest reserve since 1921 and as a wildlife sanctuary since 1971. We certainly hope this natural beauty would remain as a reserve and sanctuary for eternity for the public as well as for the flora and fauna. During most weekends and public holidays, this small sanctuary is swarmed with hundreds of hikers, a testimony of its attractions.

The breath-taking beauty of the forest, boulders, beaches, cliffs and sea proves irresistible to most of us. Hikers come for exercise. But it’s normal for us to take photos of strange trees, fungi, unique rock formations. Also, on rare occasions we took our poses amongst rock pools and watched whirlpools while hiking.

  1. Lovely photos from your friend. I have been meaning to ask, are you originally from Malaysia or you travelled frequently to Malaysia and Singapore as I can see you understand or wrote in different asian languages before! Also my sincerest best wishes for the survivors of the train wreck and condolences to the people of Taiwan for losing a loved one(s) in that incident. It was really sad and I could not find time to pen this as so busy at work till I made time now to do this. Take care.
