Tak Kenal Maka Tak Cinta Ep1: Kuala Tahan

We kick off a new ecotourism-centred series on Earth Matters - Tak Kenal Maka Tak Cinta - which aims to highlight lesser-known ecotourism spots right here in Malaysia. Done in collaboration with the Ecotourism & Conservation Society of Malaysia (ECOMY) the series aims to shine a spotlight on lesser-known ecotourism spots right here in Malaysia, that will take you on off-the-beaten-track nature adventures.

In our first episode, we explore the hidden delights that the areas surrounding Kuala Tahan has to offer, including nature walks, wildlife tracking, bird-watching, a visit to an Orang Asli village, and river tubing. Helping us to explore the great Tahan outdoors is Andrew Sebastian, the Founder & Chief Executive Officer of ECOMY.
