Long drive from KK to hot springs. Enjoyed time in the spa bath but maybe not worth the journey time on difficult roads

Lovely place, where all the Sabahan grew up in 😂 It's quite crowded, especially when we visited during public holiday. Car parks are pretty much full, but if you're staying here, you get to park at your own space next to your house. Love the River Lodge, a 2 rooms chalet, very big space for a big group. Shower rooms are big surprises. The whole house is next to the river, so you get a whole day zen vibes hearing the sound of river flow. What's more notable, while you definitely can sitting together at the balcony to enjoy the scene, beware of snakes 🥲 Restaurant is, okay that's the only place you can get food within the Poring, but definitely not a place for good food; not even breakfast. If you are picky, if you must eat good food while visiting and staying overnight, go outside. But if you like to support, you're steady and laid-back, then there you go. An extra note, you'd also needed to purchase a ticket to enter the area, just to get to the restaurant. Lovely place still, highly recommended to visit ❤️
A good place to bring families & friends for fun activities. Among things to do include hot spring water, natural river waterfall, visit butterfly farm, canopy walk (not for the faint-hearted or weak knees) & mini water park for kids.
Favourite hot spring frequently visited by the local. Pay a small entrance fee and you can use one of the tub for yourself. Quite clean and fun to spend a few hours here. The spring water has no smell at all.
I have been following the development of this park for a very long time. I still enjoy the greeneries and exploring the park. However, during my last visit, many section of the park were still closed. Aside from enjoying nature, I like to look at the signboards. The signage are informative, clear, well designed and very helpful. The people working there are as professional as ever. I am happy that Poring Hot Spring is now somewhat wheelchair accessible. Unfortunately, many of the paths are now cemented. This reduces the "natural" element of the park and somehow lessen the noise pollution absorption by nature.
Good place to tour even doing the canopy walk. Breathtaking scenery and be careful with canopy walk that you choose designated photographer as you will need to pay a fee. But be careful you have something to keep camera safe as you will lose it if you drop and may not be able to recover your camera/phone. I would recommend going to Hot Spring as part of a tour group. Not sure I would recommend swimming or wading in the hot spring as not sure how clean the water is.
