Photographer's Note

Batu Pahat in Kedah's Bujang Valley seems to be one of the best kept secrets in Malaysia. With its lush tropical rain forest and clear, pristine river and waterfall, it's amazing that not many visitors make it to this beautiful valley. Right next the the archeological museum there is the lower part of the Batu Pahat waterfall, which however does carry very little water most of the year.

The 4,114 hectare Paya Laut Merbok Forest Reserve behind the museum is rich in flora and fauna, diverse mangrove habitat and a bird-watching paradise. Over 80 bird species have been spotted here, with its extensive mudflats a favorite haunt for wading birds.
