The place has a cool weather. It was drizzling when we went there so it was a bit chilly. The variety of plants is very nice.

Although this is a tiny botanical park, they still require an admission fee. One also first needs to pay to enter the main park itself. It takes only a few minutes to walk through the botanical park. There are some explanatory notes and various labels...More

It was very green and damp when we went and there were few flowers - I imaging that it is much more attractive when the orchids are flowering.

It is probably unfair to compare these gardens with others in the region, especially Singapore. These gardens are very natural being part of the forest in the foothills of Mount Kinabalu. Having said that, seeing the worlds smallest orchid, numerous pitcher plants and other varieties...More

We had booked our tour through Diethelm Travel and our guide, 'Danson' took us to to bot Mt Kinabalu and the Botanical Garden. If you're not interested in flora and fauna, it's not for you.

It vaues based on time of year. Good little shop serving hot and fold drunks, loo. An array of different local rainforest plants, some good pitcher plants. A bit expensive overall

Borneo jungle. Densely covered with fauna and flora. We just wanted to see if from a distance, no climbing. It was magical. The top part of the mountain was covered with clouds but it was a sunny day so we were very lucky.

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
