Not far from sepilok is the rainforest reserve. Large rainforest bridģes and walkways to explore the rainforest and admire the botany. The information centre is suitable for children and contains enough exhibitions for an hour of education. The gardens are stunning with wide variety of tropical plants.entrance fee low for all that you get on this visit.
