Malaysia Birding


Due to its proximity, this is my first country birding outside of Singapore.  The few hours of ride up to Fraser Hill sometime can be quite unpleasant as the journey could be quite uncomfortable but this was fortunately negated by the fun we have together as a group.  I even drove to Panti Forest in Johor against all advice by Malaysians friends not to do so due to some security issues but the biodiversity is a pull factor. A couple of birders have been robbed before in the forest but the thoughts of the birds made us want to go back. Along the way, there is a Bak-Kut-Teh store, excellent food but I read somewhere in social media that the store was burnt down by fire which I could not confirm. Other places we went for birding in Malaysia include Genting Highland and Bukit Tinggi.  Hope to go there once again someday soon.
