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.

Avoid it. Go instead to Tanjung Puting in South Kalimantan for the real thing. This place has been too marketed already.

Unfortunately we only had a few hours in the park but if I had the chance to return I would be happy to spend a week twitching here, the birds are abundant and beautiful. The canopy walkway is great as many birds would be difficult to spot from the ground. We were also lucky enough to see an orangutan in... More

Forest green indeed give peace. In this forest park, you can see various types of tumbahan that thrives around it. Visit to this park early in the morning as promised air atmosphere and scenery is quite beautiful. The forest park is not only suitable for doing research, but also suitable for leisure activities and relaxation.

A great place beautifully landscaped but would advise go early in the morning if possible when it is cooler, we went mid day and the humidity was a killer. Amazing plants and lots to see and do - take water!

That's what you will experience if you spend a day or afternoon here. There are many areas of this park to explore, from the tropical flower garden to the natural trails. If this sounds like something you would enjoy, yes, it was definitely worth the admission fee. There are 2 prices basically, for Malaysians and for non-Malaysians. The fee was... More

Good way to see a variety of forest species up close. We enjoyed the suspended walkways above the forest.

Really lovely walks through rainforest & more cultivated gardens. You can get up in to the canopy by climbing very tall towers. We visited the day after our Sepilok visit & enjoyed this discovery Centre hugely. The canopy walks are amazing & one visitor we met had seen Orangs on the walkway. It is a very extensive area & you... More
