      Hi,
      We are traveling to malaysia in the summer 2015 and are looking for a great way to visit taman negara np. We don't like the touristy tourist things. Can anyone give us tips about a guided not very touristic trekking. We are not rhe kind of hero's that go in the park ourselves. Is there a possibility to arrange a private guide, and where can we find a good one?

      Thank you

      So, I am wondering, since I will be in Penang next week, if anyone knows whereabouts I might be able to go when I am there to buy the battery? The guy on the phone would not tell me his location (as they only service Australia?)
