  • It's about an hour. This park is home to Mt. Kinabalu, the largest mountain in Southeast Asia, and various plants grow. You might be able to see Rafresia (the world's largest flower). The weather is changeable, so sneakers and rain gear. Drinks are also essential. I sweated unexpectedly. I enjoyed the canopy.
