Poring Hot Spring and Rafflesia Garden, Ranau

Saturday, January 08, 2011
Sooo, after experienced the "painful" fish massage, we then headed to the Poring Hot Spring.
"Poring" actually one of the bamboo species that can be found at there.
This place is famous with its hot spring of course!

Us at the entrance bridge.

Mamut Stream

Look at the clear stream. 

Eric and I at the stream.

After passed by the stream, there is a pathway to go into the Hot Spring area.
It just like inside the jungle!! LOL!!


Poring?

Eric with the bamboo trees.

I also want! 

Just walked through the pathway and you can see the Hot Spring!


We're already late that time and that's why we didn't go for the Canopy Walkway.
It is only open till 4.30pm.

Woooo.. can you see that?
Open Bath Tub!! 

No, we didn't go for that as none of us brought extra clothes and we're late already.
So, what we did was dip our legs into the hot spring water.

Us!

Eric and Daddy

Eric's leg so hairy!! 
The water is really hot!! You have to put your leg into it without moving then only feel comfortable with the water temperature. 

We just stayed there for a while and left as the day getting dark.
We managed to stopped by one of the Rafflesia garden along the way back.


Frankly, I myself quite disappointed with this one.
The entrance fee is RM 10 and when we entered there, what we saw was ONLY one Rafflesia at there!
Luckily clever Eric's daddy managed to reduced the price and only paid RM 50 for 7 of us.


Can you see that Rafflesia?
I was hoping to see the huge one.

Us captured with Rafflesia flower.
You see.. nothing else we can see at there, RM 10 is kinda not worth!


Eric's daddy found these fruits.
And only get to know this fruit is what locals at here called it as " Buah Ajaib " (Magical Fruit)
They said the first time u eat it, it gives SOUR taste, but when the second time u eat it, it will gives SWEET taste!

That's all for the day and we're all exhausted for the whole day trip!
We had our dinner at Inanam and back to rest.
