    Great Nature Discovery and Learning Experience! I had a great time in the Malaysian rainforest, despite not being a jungle trekking lover. I met Happy Yen, and new friends from Russia and USA. Happy Yen is a very knowledgeable tour guide. He introduced us simple yet delicious local food. This is not just a rainforest tour, it’s an enlightening journey that enabled me not only to discover nature and religion, but also to look into myself. Happy Yen shared his philosophical theories by linking nature with our daily lives during the tour. He also shared his key of happiness “Be Happy, Be a SIMPLETON”.

    Happy Yen taught us to believe in ourselves, stay focus and push ourselves to the limit at the hot springs. I never thought that I could stand the heat and stayed calm while soaking my whole body in 46+ °C of hot water. Enjoyed the day!
