Poring Hot Springs

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.
