This rainforest in Sarawak is over 60 million years old, earning it the UNESCO World Heritage Site title.

Famous for its caves, clear waters, and extreme hikes, the park is truly a beautiful place for you to be one with nature, while also exploring the treasures it holds.

In fact, the park also offers a three-day hike that will take you to the Pinnacles, a beautiful site which showcases large grey and white stone structures that look like sharp spikes.

6. Pantai Senok, Kelantan

Known as the Nami Island of Malaysia, Pantai Senok is famous for its tall pine trees that are almost identical to the ones in South Korea.

According to The Malaysian Reserve, the pine trees were originally planted by the Kelantan Forestry Department to prevent coastal erosion and flooding. Over the years, as the pine trees grew taller, they also ended up becoming a nice, shady spot for the locals to chill and have a picnic.

7. Kapas Island, Terengganu

Kapas Island is one of Malaysia's most beautiful islands, and it's definitely a tourist attraction many Malaysians are familiar with.

But, did you know that there's a hiking trail on the island that will take you to the peak of the Lion Hill, which offers beautiful cliff and sea views? It'll make you feel like you're in Bali!

To get to the island, you'll have to hop on a 15-minute boat ride from Marang Jetty in Terengganu. The best time to visit the island is between March and October. The island is usually closed to the public from November to February because of monsoon season.
