The above are the most popular zip line or flying fox places in Malaysia to date and are mostly tourist-friendly.

I am sure in time to come, there will be more zip lines in Malaysia, especially when we have so many natural resources and rainforest.

Hopefully, the government will boost the Ecotourism sector by giving more incentives for local and to invite world-class operators to introduce more Eco activities here in Malaysia.
