The Canopy Walkway is about 30 meters high, providing great opportunities for nature watching and fantastic views over the rainforest. Spend time walking along some of the many nature trails. Lunch at the local restaurant. Afterwards visit Sun Bear Sanctuary. This sanctuary aims to increase awareness of this endearing, but little-known bear species.
