“The Great Mines”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

I was very excited after paying for the entrance ticket. Later only realized that the train would only took me for about 80 meters into the mines. Then disembarked the train and walk to explore. I did not know what to expect, there were no guide to explain or lead the tourist. Though there were 2 staff inside the tunnel, they didn't even border to kind of brief the visitors; instead they were busy chit chatting ! Later, I was told by some locals that there should be a simulated lift to bring visitors 1200 meters lower ?!

“Old Sleepy Town”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

Sungai Lembing Mine is a quite a interesting attraction. The short train ride into the tunnel is a must for young boys. Just down the hill from the mines, there is a famous restaurant name Hoover which is famous for their Roast Pork. I like their tomato noodle and pork trotter too.

“Awesome experience of the mines”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

Do go to Sg Lembing and get into the mine for a real experience of how does it feel mining in the tunnel. No worries , we've been there twice and so far everything is safe.

This is a nice place to visit. Price reasonable. They call it el dorado of the east. Truly amazing experience.

Please ask for tour guide name "Mann". Well versed in English and can explain in detail.

“Slighly overpriced but quite interesting.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

It's the biggest and deepest tin mine in the world but most areas are closed due to flooding and poor maintenance. Guided tour takes just below 45 minutes.
