Are you patiently waiting at home, dreaming for now, to travel later? (#DreamNow, #TravelLater!) If you are (as am I), I have three local destinations for you to choose from for the better days we all await! Let’s go to Skytrex, the perfect place to stretch our bodies and reclaim our nature, through nature. Where are the three destinations, you ask? The answer is, Sungai Congkak, Melaka, and Langkawi, where three Skytrex Parks are located. The adventure parks offer different types of circuits for you to ‘sky-trek’ in Malaysia’s rain forests, where you get to swing like Tarzan, fly like a fox, or dangle like an orangutan. Face various obstacles and challenges that will definitely trigger your adrenaline rush!

Before I continue to pique your interest, please do hurry and get your tickets first as Skytrex Adventure is having a crazy sale of 40% off for all circuits and all parks during the MCO period! The offer is only valid through online purchase at their official ticketing website. Make sure to enter their code SKYCARES4U to redeem the offer! Worry not, you are free to choose any dates of activity within the year and reschedule for free in case something comes up!

As for the activities available, you can choose from three circuits, depending on your preferred level: Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced. The three Skytrex parks available also carry their own unique features that would make you spoilt for choice! Skytrex Sungai Congkak is the newest addition to the family with their first flying fox park, while Skytrex Langkawi is the most sought after among the three, and Skytrex Melaka is home to Malaysia’s first Skybike. Not only that, beginner circuits at Skytrex Langkawi and Melaka are kid-friendly. Get ready for a fun-packed family time!

Skytrex Sungai Congkak is situated in Congkak Park and Resort, where the public can access the river and picnic areas at an entrance fee of only RM1 for locals and RM5 for foreign visitors. Skytrex’s first Flying Fox Park here will have you fly across the beautiful stream. You will get to kill two birds with one stone by taking a refreshing dip in the river and/or have a picnic by the riverside after finishing your Skytrex experience. Don’t forget to bring extra clothes!

Just a gentle reminder, to preserve the forest, rapids, and waterfall, Skytrex Sungai Congkak has a strict policy on single-use plastic in the area. You can read the full Green Policy on their website. Such an amazing practice that should be implemented by more recreational sites and tourist spots! Now that’s something I can get behind!

Want to take your cycling skills up a notch? Head over to Skytrex Melaka for their cycling track up in the air! You might not be Philippe Petit, who walked on high wire in the middle of New York’s concrete jungle, but you can now cycle on high wire through Melaka Botanical Garden’s tropical forest. Close enough, right?

After your Skytrex session, cool down by taking a stroll around the botanical garden and find a canopy walk, dinosaur park, and many more! Do not miss out on taking some pictures with the dino buddies!

If you’re going to Skytrex Langkawi, the hill side adventure will surely mesmerise you with its scenic view as it is located within the enclosure of Burau Bay. Plan ahead for a longer stay in Langkawi as this particular Skytrex park is surrounded by various other attractions for you to visit and most importantly, the magic of the legendary Mahsuri. Trust me, you won’t regret it!

For locals to enjoy the Malaysian rates at Skytrex Langkawi, make sure to enter the voucher code SKYLGKMY to obtain the discounted prices.

For the upcoming bright and sunny days where we long to gather again, you can also complement your activities with Skymatch, comprising of 10 telematch games for you to choose from, with a minimum of 25 pax requirement for the Skytrex crew to organise the match. For more information on their offers, services, and policies, visit https://www.skytrex-adventure.org/.

Have I persuaded you yet? The more I write on this, the more excited I get thinking about all the fun I will have when I finally get to visit them. I think I’m going to buzz my friends right away to plan our first sky-trekking-slash-picnic sesh. In the meantime, stay home and stay safe!
