Bako National Park

    People sometimes say, having a holiday outside Malaysia is the best, i might agree with those guys but that doesn't mean that we should neglect our own country since our own country, Malaysia has it's own unique vacation spots.

  Last Sunday, my old friends from my former school decides to hangout and want to enjoy ourselves. In the process of brainstorming for ideas for places to go, we decided that we go to Bako since most of us never been to Bako before. 

The boat journey to Bako

The boat ride took about 20 minutes. It was very very very windy not to mention hazy. Our guide is really friendly and was very entertaining in explaining to us about the park itself.

 During the journey to find the flying lemur, the guide explained to us about a lot plants we encounter on the at the trail. I learned a lot things, i found out that the thorns of pokok rebung is used as the bullet for the blowpipe.

Overall, it was a great day for me because it was my first time visiting Bako National Park. I hope i might be able to visit it again someday.
