Day 2: Visit to Forest Research Institute Malaysia

Selamat Pagi to all! After a good night sleep, we are all raring to explore the amazing city of Kuala Lumpur!
One of the two places of interest which we are visiting today is FRIM!
Forest Research Institute of Malaysia (FRIM)
Located about 20 km north-west of Kuala Lumpur, the Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM) is a statutory agency of the Government of Malaysia, under the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment.
FRIM promotes sustainable management and optimal use of forest resources in Malaysia by generating knowledge and technology through research, development and application in tropical forestry.
The amazing botanical haven is a 600 hectares tropical forest which contains a wealth of flora and fauna with approximately 15,000 species of plants!
Key attractions at FRIM includes the canopy walk where the pupils will see the breath-taking view of the city and the greenery of the forest on the canopy which is suspended 30 meters from the ground and spans over 200 meters!
