We didn't try the hot spring because it was too crowded on Sunday. However, we were so excited while walking through the 41 meters tree-top canopy walk and enjoyed the Borneo tropical rainforest! It was fun and adventure, especially children were very happy with it!
On the way to the Poring Hot Spring, we were lucky that we have chance for seeing the Rafflesia flower, the biggest flower in the world! The flower will only bloom for less than a week then will decay, and it blooms unexpectedly any time of year. If it is in the blooming period, you can see some handmade signboard at the roadside while on the way to the Poring Hot Spring. Hence, make sure to ask your driver to pay attention on that. The local people will bring you walk into the forest for seeing the Rafflesia, and RM10 per person. But you will not because of wish to save the 10 bucks and miss the chance of seeing it! The local people will use the 10 bucks for making small fences to protect the Rafflesia and making bridge for us so that we have easier way to walk into the forest. Hence, I consider it is still worth the price after we saw the local people really do some preservation of the nature.
On the way to Poring Hot Spring, you can have a stop at Nabalu Market, which the traditional handicrafts are much cheaper than other places, and remember always bargain the price.
