  • Participating in the tour, I went to the Kinabalu National Park. English guide it in 190 ringgit, another couple of Hong Kong S.A.R. and participated in three. Around tour of the Botanical Garden, walkway, rafflesia, poring hot springs. It is good to see the journey as well as Mt. Kinabalu, the laid-back, rural landscape. Rafa rafflesia was lucky really. Guide who explains hard will guide as he met. Tours are recommended.
