We went on a day trip to these gardens, and was given a rainforest walk along boardwalks first, before being shown the spectacular array of plants growing in these amazing gardens. We then had lunch at the centre which was really nice and the whole...More
We made a visit here while our friends completed a trek on Mount Kinabalu. It is an interesting place for those who do not have the time or cannot visit the real primary forest areas of Borneo. Certainly it is better to hire a guide...More
If you are in the area or even have to go out of the way a little-this place is totally worth enjoying!!! We had an amazing guide John from @lonemanborneo and took about 1.5 hours to finished a very detailed tour.

Hi Mel Yeo,
We rented a car and drove up because we also visited other attractions other than the garden. There’s Poring Hotspring and other stops you can make on the way down. I suggest you get your hotel concierge to give you reliable driver to take you up and you can do self guided tour at each attraction.
Hope this helps.

We did this as a daytrip from Kota Kinabalu. We had pre-arranged a tour via Borneo Eco Tours. I guess local agents can arrange this trip or alternatively rent a car yourselve. It is a easy to drive and daytrip. You can hire... More
We did this as a daytrip from Kota Kinabalu. We had pre-arranged a tour via Borneo Eco Tours. I guess local agents can arrange this trip or alternatively rent a car yourselve. It is a easy to drive and daytrip. You can hire a guide at the park entrance if you wish.
Enjoy your trip!
