What You Can Expect

You’ll be picked up from your Kota Kinabalu hotel and taken on a comfortable 1-hour drive through the idyllic countryside and up the mountainous Crocker Range. After admiring the beautiful mountain scenery, arrive at the Rafflesia Information Centre in the district of Tambunan.

Follow your guide on a 2- to 3-hour nature trek amidst lush vegetation and lowland rainforests. The highlight of your journey is sure to be the rafflesia flowers. These magnificent flowers are the largest in the world, and are only found in Southeast Asia! Be sure to bring your camera to capture this one-of-a-kind sight.

You’ll be treated with views of rice paddy fields, lush green mountains and dense bamboo forests that surround the town, and your guide will explain that these forests are a legacy of the British colonial period, when a law required that 20 bamboo sprouts be planted for every bamboo tree cut down.

In town, visit a home of a local family to learn how to make tapai, a traditional sweet rice wine. Chat with the locals with the help of your guide to gain insight on the daily lifestyle in the village. After this unique cultural experience, relax on the ride back to your Kota Kinabalu hotel.
