Orang Utan Island, Bukit Merah, Perak Malaysia

Tucked away on the 35-acre Pulau Orang Utan, Orang Utan Island is the world's first and only 5-acre rehabilitation and preservation facility where Orang Utans roam free. The unique island serves as a breeding sanctuary as well as conservation, research and education center to better understand this endangered species.

Venture from the main jetty at Marina Village and wait for the lake Cruiser to ferry you to the Orang Utan Island. It's just a 10-minute boat ride across, and boats leave every half hours.

At the island, you will be taken through a 100-meter steel walkthrough 'cage tunnel' to come up close and personal with these primates. In a twist, you will be enclosed in a 'cage' as you observe the Orang Utans roaming free in their natural habitats. Two baby Orang Utans are the stars of the island. You will be able to interact with them nin the tunnel.
