No tour of the Borneo Island is complete without visiting two of the most popular attractions here – the Kinabalu Park and Poring Hot Springs.
The former is situated in the county of Sabah, which is widely known for other points of interests for tourists, such as Mount Kinabalu and Padas River, where a lot of people are gathering every year to practice extreme water sports. With an area of more than 750 square kilometers, it is the largest natural park in the county, and a renowned recreation destination for both tourists and local inhabitants.
It is a real feast for your eyes to contemplate all the wonderfully colored flowers found in this place. There are a lot of orchid species that grow exclusively in this area. The total number of unique varieties of endemic plants, which are not found anywhere else on the globe, is estimated at around 280. The same thing applies for more than 290 species of butterflies, birds and animals that live only in the area covered by Kinabalu Park and Poring Hot Springs.
A walk on the suspended bridges existing in this region offers you a unique perspective of the whole landscape, which lays 60 meters under your feet. The walkways are very solid, but only people with a strong heart and enough courage dare to cross them.
Once you arrive at the hot springs, you can admire the gaseous water emissions springing from the ground, or even take a bath. The curative properties of these waters are widely known, and there are a lot of differently sized bathtubs here, for a single person or for a family.
You can take your camera along and shoot or record beautiful pictures, which will later serve you as a remembrance of the wonderful time spent at Kinabalu Park and Poring Hot Springs.
