"Ugh rooms, bathrooms & toilets" Taman Negara Tourist Trap Tip by anoum
Taman Negara Tourist Traps: 4 reviews and 2 photos
Many foreign tourists go to Taman Negara without booking rooms so they had to stay at those that overlook the Kuala Tembeling river (separates Taman Negara from Kuala Tahan). These places are cheaper (but not always). When I walked past them and looked into the rooms thro open doors, I was thankful I chose a better place (Rainforest Resort)!
The rooms were rather dank, the bed linen's cleanliness questionable (even those in the store room), the bathrooms/toilets looked somewhat like public toilets. Examples are those at Ekoton (behind LBK Floating Restaurant) and the bathroooms/toilets for dorm guests at Nusa Camp.
Unique Suggestions: Take along a pair of bathroom slippers so you need not walk bare footed on slimy sandy floors. These slippers are easily available in sundry shops around Malaysia for less than RM3.
Fun Alternatives: Go during the low season or at least not during weekends and public holidays. Call the better hotels or resorts and negotiate for a better price.
Checking in on Sunday afternoon is fine as the weekend crowd will be leaving and the hotels/resorts will be more willing to offer you a better bargain.
Don't stay in dorm accomodations if you can afford not to. You will get bathrooms and toilets that look like they are open for public use. I went to those at Nusa Camp while on the way back from rapid shooting and that is exactly what they look like.
