Aboriginal People Museum / Muzium Orang Asli

Aboriginal People Museum Muzium Orang Asli Gombak-Malaysia

Muzium Orang Asli Gombak is managed by the Orang Asli Affairs Department. The Orang Asli museum is the perfect place for you to learn the lifestyle of the tribes such as their dwellings, personal adornments, arts, costumes, musical instruments, hunting and agricultural tools, animal traps and traditional medicine. The three-level museum building (fully air-conditioned) was completed at a cost of RM3.3mil in 1998.On the lower level is a mini-theatre where briefings are given to visiting officials and schoolchildren. It has a 100-seat and well equipped with an audio-visual system.
On entering the ground level of the Muzium Orang Asli, you will be delighted to find old photographs and insight information on the Orang Asli group. Do you know that the Orang Asli population in the Peninsular Malaysia is divided into three main ethnic groups? They are Negrito, Senoi and Proto-Malay and further divided into six tribes each.
While you're inside the Muzium Orang Asli, look out for a small cannon and a wireless set from the Senoi Praaq. Senoi Praaq is a term that means fighting people. It refers to the two battalions of the Police Field Force whose members are almost exclusively orang asli and were originally formed in 1957 for jungle warfare against communists.

Langkawi is an archipelago consisting of 99 islands in the Andaman Sea, south of Thailand, 30km off the mainland coast of northwestern Peninsular Malaysia. The islands are a part of Malaysia's Kedah state, but are adjacent to the border of Thailand. By far the largest of the islands is the eponymous Pulau Langkawi (Langkawi Island), 478.5 square kilometers, with an estimated population of 100,000. The only other inhabited island is Pulau Tuba.

Cable Car Ride & Hanging Bridge, Ride the cable car to the top of Gunung Mat chinchang and walk across the 700m high Sky Bridge for a spectacular view of the islands and Thailand. Includes a very steep section which is spectacular both going up and coming down. Doesn't operate in bad weather. If they are not operating, or you are really into hiking, you can trek partway up the mountain through the jungle. To do this, from the parking lot at Telagah Tujuh Waterfalls go left just before the road goes really uphill and then turn left again at the water reservoir. The trek is very steep most of the way and in a pretty bad condition because the contractors laying down the piping for cables littered garbage all the way to the top. Only attempt this if you are fit and have good hiking boots. Temperatures at the top of the mountain are 4 to 5 degrees lower than at sea level. RM25 Adult, RM18 child. edit
