Kinabalu National Park and Poring Hot Spring

Kinabalu Park, about two hours and half leisure drive from the city of Kota Kinabalu. It is the home to the world’s diverse flora and fauna. The diversity of plant life which has been preserved hundred of years ago makes it a worthwhile visit. Another tourist attraction spot is the Poring Hot Spring which is 40 km away from the National Park area. It is one of the Sabah’s top tourism destinations. The main attraction which draws visitors to Poring Hot Spring is of course the hot spring. It is believed that the hot spring water has a therapeutic effect on tired and distended muscles. Besides that, there are also other interesting areas in the park to be visited such as the butterfly farm, the Poring orchid conservation centre, the tropical garden, the Poring canopy walkway and the Rafflesia flower site.
