Poring Hot Springs, Kota Kinabalu Reviews
There are plenty of activities could be done here. Apart from the hot spring itself you can enjoy jungle trekking. It's a fun place to visit. You will definitely like it.
This place is fun to visit. However it is sad for me due to raining season. 1. The place well maintain. 2. There is plenty small pool for kids and pool meant for family. 3. This place popular for locals and one of tourist destination. 4. Try out the canopy walk. Is a must and it is fun after the walk. 5. Please wear proper attire and shoe. Fancy cloths, please keep them in the bag. Most importantly is enjoy the scene and the crowd.
I've been to this place before but never get a chance to try the canopy walk 😅 so last December I went to this place again, and I tried the canopy walk. It has 4 walks, and the 3rd is the longest and the highest! When you walk here, you will be higher than most of the trees 😂 I barely survived, because I'm afraid of high places. But this walks are safe. Don't worry.
For it's cheap entrance tickets, it is a decent place to soak your feet. If you set your expectations low, you might have a good day here. There are surrounding hikes, a waterfall, a canopy walk (scary though!) among other activities.
Great stop, especially if you've just climbed Mount Kinabalu. Enjoy a rest in the morning and take a leisurely stroll through the ground to stretch out. 👌
