    Hello adventurers!

    The residence was created by the Malaysian artist Mohamad as an art studio. He is a renowned painter and art educator. A very humble and generous person with a great sense of humor, maybe a little strange too ;)

    Madi's art garden is a place to let one's creativity run wild and explore the authentic life of Malaysia. We live a simple life in a small village located in the jungle. It is surrounded by local attractions such as waterfalls, rivers, bamboo, high rising trees and local fauna and flora. The agricultural activities take place in a slightly mountainous region. This means that we breath clean air, drink clean water from a mountain river and it is cool at night here. We also set value on sustainable living to preserve our natural home. We reduce plastic as much as possible and compost our organic trash which is unfortunately not common in Malaysia yet. We also grow various local fruits, veggies and herbs for our own nutrition and health.

    The Artgarden is home to people from all walks of life. Here you can create and learn art of many forms, sharing ideas and activities, exploring nature, get to know the tradition of local people and their way of life, trying Malay foods, learning Malay language, joining festivities, dancing, practising the Malaysian martial art Silat, singing karaoke and many more if you so wish. Have you tried the local drink Teh Tarik? It's fantastique.

    We are always looking to improve from our volunteers experience. If you have knowledge about yoga, dancing, music, massage, gardening, farming, games, exercise, workshop and others that you have come across through your life and travels you are most welcome to share with us.

    Selamat datang in the jungle
