What we say: 4 stars

Even if you're not climbing any mountains, this national park is still worth a visit.

In 2000 it was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Park for its diverse flora and fauna, including insect-eating pitcher plants, wild orchids and more than 300 species of birds. Park rangers lead guided walks around the botanical garden every day at 11:00 (5 ringgit per person) or you can catch a documentary about the park called A Beacon of Biodiversity at the Visitor Centre at 14:00 daily, with extra showings at 19:30 on weekends.

There are also plenty of marked walking trails and you can get a free map from the Sabah Parks Reception Office.

The park gates are manned from 07:00 till 19:00.
