While our ancestors had good knowledge of the plants and flowers in the country side, most of us have grown up with very little idea, if not none at all, and we are also very much unaware of the plants kingdom, and staying in the cities does not help either. A visit down to the Tenom Agriculture Park not only helps us to recover some of the long lost knowledge but also helps us to gain valuable tips on setting up a garden, be it large or small. Covering an area of more than 200 hectares, this botanic jewel features an impressive variety of flora. The flowers and plants here are arranged into many gardens, just the ornamental garden alone has in itself 21 themed gardens.

Rainforest Discovery Centre

The best place in Sandakan to come and learn about forest and nature.

After paying a visit to the famous Sepilok Orang-Utan Rehabilitation Centre or while waiting for the feeding time in the afternoon, one can always turn into the Rainforest Discovery Centre (RDC) which is about 1km away. This is a great new addition to the Sandakan tourist destinations. Set within the Kabili-Sepilok Forest Reserve, Rainforest Discovery Centre is a huge place. The main attractions here are the canopy walk, the plant discovery garden and the forest trails. Bird lovers will have an extra incentive to visit, three towers that mushroom up to the top of the canopy giving visitors a spectacular view over the surrounding tree tops. Huge canopy walkway on equal height with the trees allows photographers to choose the perfect spot to capture that unique picture of exotic birds of Borneo (with some luck).

Tun Fuad Stephens Park (Bukit Padang)

For the last few centuries, many of us have chosen to live in the city instead of staying at the country side. As more and more cities are built, millions upon millions of human beings are coming for the vibrant life that these cities have to offer. Yet at times we miss the beautiful nature of the country side like hills, lakes, forests, trees, plants, flowers, and birds which are all very dear to us. No wonder cities all around the world build parks to keep us in touch with nature. Today a stroll in the park is going to do our hearts wonder. The trees give us clean oxygen, flowers make us happy, birds and insects sing to us, and not forgetting the exercise we gained by walking around the park.
