DESCRIPTION The Belum Rainforest Resort is set in the tropical paradise of the Belum-Temengor rainforest on Pulau Banding Island, which is located midway between the east and west coasts of Malaysia. Connected to and by the East-West-Highway are the closest towns to Belum: Jeli (Kelantan) and Gerik (Perak). Pulau Banding is a five hour drive from Kuala Lumpur. Situated in the state of Perak, at the border of Malaysia and Thailand, the stunning landscape of the Rainforest houses over 3,000 species of flowering plants. The entire forest complex is approximately four times the size of Singapore, making it the perfect habitat for 14 of the world’s most threatened mammals, including the Malaysian Tiger, Malaysian Sunbear, Sumatran Rhinoceros and others. It also makes this forest an ideal destination for ecotourism activities, such as wildlife watching, education and research initiatives, which support the conservation efforts of the area.
