Visit Sabah

Sabah is located on the northern part of the Borneo Island, the third largest island in the world. It has a land mass of 73,619 square kilometres, which is just slightly bigger than the Washington state of USA. Two thirds of Sabah shoreline are surrounded by seas and with its long shoreline, it also comes with many tropical islands, as many as one hundred, which range from the habitable big ones to exotic tiny ones.

Last century a prize winning book called “Land Below the Wind” which was written by celebrated American writer Agnes Keith, has created a lot of interest from the Western world to explore this wonderful mysterious land. Today with avid promotion done by the state government in many developed countries and also via words of mouth, Sabah is fast becoming the popular choice for an ultimate tropical vacation.

Poring Water World

Located at the south-eastern corner of Kinabalu National Park, Poring Hot Spring is still within the boundary of Kinabalu park and it attracts thousand and thousand of tourists annually. While the Kinabalu Park Headquarters has cold temperate climate, Poring Hot Spring has a hot and humid climate that is covered by the dipterocarp forests. There are many interesting activities for the day trippers to do here. These activities include the popular canopy walk, or the more adventurous folks, they can go for jungle trekking to the breath-taking Langanan waterfall, which has a 100 foot drop. For nature lovers they can visit the Butterfly Farm and the Orchid Conservation Centre.

But the most important thing to do in the mind of most people while visiting Poring Hot Spring is of course to enjoy a hot bath with the steaming water coming out from the natural hot spring. Over the years the park management has slowly made this area to a small water world park. Visitors can enjoy the covered public bath area or the swimming pool, for free. For those who like more privacy they can choose the private bath houses. For a good swim one can try the bigger multi level pool near the cafe, this slide pool is loved by the children.
