Tips for Camping in Malaysia

  • Certain camping sites in Malaysia require mandatory accompaniment of an authorized guide for the safety of the campers. It is better not to insist otherwise. 
  • Areas by waterfalls and riverside can often be dangerous during high tide or heavy rainfall. 
  • Wearing the right footwear is recommended. Plastic sandals or crocs are ideal for beaches or simpler terrains, while sites inside jungles and rougher landscapes call for hiking boots.
