Poring Hot Springs

Soothe those weary muscles

What we say: 3.5 stars

These open-air hot springs are the perfect place to soothe your weary legs after tackling Mount Kinabalu.

The hot sulphuric water is said to have healing properties and you can soak in the communal pool or pay extra for a private tub (15 ringgit/hour). Poring has become somewhat of a tourist trap and for an extra charge you can check out the slide pool, butterfly farm, orchid garden and 40-metre high suspension bridge through the forest canopy.

On the way here, keep your eyes peeled for roadside signs announcing where a Rafflesia, the world's largest flower, is in bloom. Even though it's 40 kilometres from the Park Headquarters, it's still part of Kinabalu National Park and you can re-use your conservation fee ticket. Remember to bring a towel and swim suit.
