Kinabalu National Park (Day Trip) (Adult £59, Child £49)

Day Trip - Nabalu Market – Kinabalu National Park (Botanical Garden, Poring Hot Spring and Poring Canopy Walkway) – Kundasang War Memorial (Lunch)

Your Blue Kinabalu Tour Guide will pick you up from your Kota Kinabalu city hotel at around 7:30 a.m. (additional charges applicable for pick-up outside the city) for the drive north to the National Park. After around about 90 minutes we will make a stop at Pekan Nabalu (Nabalu Market) for a comfort stop and an opportunity to visit the local market where there’s an opportunity to browse and buy local fruits, vegetables, snacks and locally crafted souvenirs. After a further 30 minute drive through scenic countryside we will arrive at Kinabalu National Park, located some 88km north-east of KK.

Proud to have been designated a ‘World Heritage Site’ by UNESCO in 2000, the park is home to the world’s most diverse array of flora and fauna with thousands of species to be found here. Noticeably cooler than KK / Sandakan with an average temperature of 18C – 24C you will first enjoy a 20-30 minute stroll through the National Park Botanical Garden, that’s in the midst of the rainforest and which contains many rare pitcher plants and orchids that you may see, dependent on blooming.

It’s then a 50 minute drive to Poring Hot Spring (and within the National Park) where we will have lunch. Then, after lunch there’s an opportunity to visit Poring Canopy Walkway. At 158m long and some 40m above the forest floor, this is a very rare opportunity to experience the rainforest canopy at close quarters up-close and personal. At the Hot Springs themselves you can take a refreshing dip in the sulphuric spring water in an open Japanese style bathtub.

On the return journey to Kota Kinabalu, there will be a chance to visit the War Memorial (WWII commemoration of Allied forces) at the small town of Kundasang. Upon return to KK, we will drop you off at your KK city hotel (additional charges applicable for drop-off outside the city)
