Are you stuck behind your desk, slaving away while counting down the days to the weekend? If the answer is yes, it’s a sign that you need a breather, not only from work but also from the concrete jungle that you call home.
If you don’t know what to do or where to go, well, all you need to do is just look a little further than the buildings outside your window because who knows, there might be some hidden natural gem waiting to be explored.
We’ve compiled a few outdoor activities around Malaysia that won’t burn a hole in your pocket; in fact, they cost only under RM100. These activities may not cost much but they’re pack with tons of adrenaline rush and fun!

One look at this geoforest park will blow you and your Instagram feed away.

3. Bukit Tabur
Ever wanted to go hiking but don’t know where to start? Well, why not enlist your experienced hiking buddy and ask him or her to take you on a trip to Bukit Tabur. Not many people know that beyond the highways and skyscrapers in KL is a beautiful limestone ridge where you can catch panoramic views of the city. It is also said that Bukit Tabur has the longest crystal quartz outcrop in the world!
There are five peaks at Bukit Tabur – Tabur East, Tabur West, Tabur Far East, Tabur Extreme, and Tabur Extra but the most popular ones are the east and west peaks.
The view from top is not only breathtaking, you’ll also feel like you’ve been transported hundreds of miles away from the city when in reality, you’re actually just a few kilometers away. Since some of these trails can be very steep and rocky, it is highly advisable to hike with a group of experienced friends. The Tabur East and Far East trails are said to be the easiest trails for first timers, so maybe you can opt to conquer these two on your first trip. Remember, safety first, view second.
Location: Bukit Tabur, Taman Melawati, Kuala Lumpur
Price: RM5 per person, this is a hiking permit you need to obtain from the Selangor Forestry Department
4. Coral Flyer Zip line, Sabah
When it comes to zip lining, the most common ones is to get from tree A to tree B. But what if we tell you that you can zip line from island to island?
Yes, islands! Calm, crystal blue waters beneath you as you cascade in style between Gaya Island and Sapi Island at the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park in Sabah. Dubbed as the “most unique zip line in the world”, this attraction alone is enough to convince us to book our next flight to the Land Below the Wind!

Price: RM68 per person
