OK, so the small water tank doesn't enable you to have a deep bath, but that didn't bother us. 2 great bedrooms, 2 enormous bathrooms, 3 sitting decks, 2 separate sittings areas, good air con and cable TV. Right next to river and entrance to the nature reserve. No internet but there is some... More

Poring basically has a lot of activities can be done. U can hike in Poring Hot Spring to reach the 2 waterfalls there. Kipungit waterfall can be reach out around 20 minutes from the entrance of the Poring Hot Spring and Lagganan Waterfall can be reach by 2-3 hours. The view and the nature absolutely beautiful. The track consider moderate... More

If you have a lot of free time, you can indulge yourself in the poring hot spring tubs. Else, a nature walk would be good enough in the park. Bring water all the time and light clothing is advisable as the temperature gets really humid inside the park, so prepare yourself to get sweaty *lol*. The downside is no pictures... More

More chance to see wildlive here than the main entrance of Kota Kinabalu reserve. Try to be early if you want to see wild live and do the kanope' quietly without screaming kids and parends. Around 11am the first bus loads arrive, but they don't do the longer hike. Mondays the butherfly garden is closed. Not many people do the... More

If you come to enjoy the hot spring, please come early, maybe around 07:00. We made the mistake of coming around 11:00, after a visit to Desa Farm. Entrance fee was rm3 for Malaysian adult and rm1 for those under 18 years of age. For foreigners, it was rm18/rm10. The place was simply teeming with people. All the public hot... More

We recently had a fine day at Poring Hot Springs while staying in Ranau. From Ranau, you can take a taxi out here. The park has a lot of fun activities, including a canopy walk (I'm afraid of heights but still enjoyed it), a butterfly garden, and a short walk to a little waterfall where you can have a swim...
