The second day was focused on exploration activities at SISFEC (LowLand Dipterocarp Forest in Klang Valley). The third day was filled with UPM Tour.
Apart from academic activities, this Physical Programme was also filled with attractive activities for participants, such as visiting the Malay Heritage Museum, Forest Eco Park Kuala Lumpur, and the Putrajaya Tour.
