Poring Hot Springs, Kota Kinabalu Reviews

  • This is one of the tourists attraction area available in this land. Whether local or foreign visitors, everyone should come here once you've reached Sabah.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.

  • We went on Monday and we found that the pool that got slide for kids is closing. Kids are sad. However, after we went to the water fall, they are happy again. As in the water, there are many small fish come to kiss your feet. We went to the canopy walk as well, it was quite terrify as the bridge is about 3 storey height. At last, we went to the hot spring. We are having fun here. We hope to come to here again.

  • This place is nice, offering an open hot tubs. Not something like you can swim in, but rather to put your tiring feet to. There is a rock pool where you can swim located just beside the hot tubs. But just to tell you, the water in the pool is cold.

  • The open hot spring bath tubs are wonderful after a hike in the park. Entrance fees are affordable, there is however a ridiculous fee for bringing a camera or any photo capturing devices. Wardens collecting fees will ask if you're gonna be snapping pics while on your visit so if you're gonna lie and cheat, just say no and make sure there's none of those devices visible while at the entrance/counter. Note this camera fee is charged only at the canopy/waterfall etc counter. 😂 You're free to take infinite pics at the pool area. Sadly we only had enough time to hike up to the tree canopy (tiring! but fun) and then to the first waterfall (forgot what it's called but it's the nearest one), enjoyed a dip (COLD af but refreshing) for an hour or so with my family 😋 there's tiny fishes in the waterfall pool that'll come nibbling at (dead skins) your feet if you stay still enough. Beware of leeches! My bro found one sucking on him after our hike down. Hot springs! There's the outdoor one open to the public and there's a private indoors one that you'll have to pay extra for. 😉 Will try the indoors on my next visit! The outdoor tubs are slow to fill up. There's 2 faucets in it, one with cold water and the other with the hot spring water. There's also pool you can swim in on the other side but this one sadly, is cold.

  • I can't find the hotspring available. There are only public bath tub area. This area I'll give 2stars only. But travellers should go deeper into the woods to find beautiful and clean waterfalls. There is a 15mins walk away from entrance waterfall and 2hours walk away from entrance waterfall. Don't miss them out. They are beautiful. I will rate them 5 stars.
