There isn't too much mangrove left on the west coast of Malaysia. Taman Baya Bakau is one of the small patches left. There's an elevated footbridge into the swamps. It won't take long before you arrive at the river arm. If you're lucky you will see mudskippers, crabs, monkeys and monitor lizards. There are birds but you probably need to... More

Too many monkeys and they are very dangerous. They will attack people who bring bags as they expect food in in the bag. Not advisable to go alone.

The wooden path walkways are rotten, rusted nails exposed, some plank wood are missing, including the staircase to hanging bridge. Some parts have metal pathways beside wooden pathways, but you can feel it is soft, not sure how much weight it can support. The notice board says you are responsible on your own safety. With all these hazards, I don't... More

My wife and i frequently go to the place to feed the monkeys. If you are calm enough, u can feed them, peacefully. If its your first time, and have no intention of feeding the monkeys, dont bring any food. It might get snatched by the monkeys, some of which are very big!

Not a nice place to hang out at all. The whole park is really a "swamp". No maintenance at all. I visited this place 2 years ago and it stayed the same or worsen. The railing looked liked they will just drop off. The whole place was just dirty and monkeys were everywhere. Some of the monkeys were ferocious. This... More

If you wanna get up and personal with the monkeys then go here, but other than that there is nothing to see. Not maintained well, but certainly something to do.

Need to refurbish the walkway - it is dangerous to walk. There are holes and unstable wood being install for previous spoilt. Rubbish everywhere. Should really refurbish the entire walkway, seriously not safe for visitors to walk although this park not many visitors visit
