Dry season in Kuala Tahan

At this rate this could be one of those holidays where we actually lose weight whilst away, what with all this exercise, the perspiration in the intense humidity, the lightweight meals and the absence of beer! With Islam the dominant relugion, alcohol is something of a rarity in Malaysia; here in Kuala Tahan, none of the floating restaurants have any, although there is just one backpackers hostel which has beer. Even there, one bottle costs more than dinner for two in the restaurants, and here, in this amazing and stunning natural environment, where human life and nature are so closely entwined, alcohol seems completely irrelevant. We’re now on Day 6 of Malaysia and Singapore.
