Found just off the western coast of Sabah, the district of Ranau is a rich cultural area highly influenced by the Dusun community. As a midway point between Kota Kinabalu and Sandakan, this region is highly frequented by locals and tourists. The fantastic natural landmarks, such as the hot springs of Ranau and Mount Kinabalu interest travellers from all-around the world. There are many places of significance to the Kadazan-Dusun people, as this locality is the original home of their ancestors. Let’s see what is waiting in the magical area of Ranau.
The area between Ranau and Tawau is a hilly location of amazing natural splendour. Between these two districts, and towns, lie many towns including Sapulut, Nabawan as well as Keningau. Most travellers opt for the quick flight between Ranau and Tawau instead of the long distance by road. Ranau’s surrounding area is filled paddy fields which makes it an extremely scenic location.
From basic hotels, to homestays and lodges, there are more than enough places to stay along the main road of Ranau. The outlying areas also afford cheaper options but you can’t beat the convenience of staying in town.
There are lots of homestays in the town of Ranau. Many are very close to the hot spring, while the rates are very competitive. The hospitality of the locals is known to be outstanding and the meals served at each homestay are both authentic and tasty.
Remnants and landmarks of the Nunuk Ragang are found in Tampios which is at the meeting of the Ligawu Kowananan and the Liwagu Kogibangan, which filter into the Labuk River. Here you will find a building which commemorates the ancestral heritage of the Kadazan-Dusun who settled the area. Throughout the year you can observe fantastic festivities held at this ancient site. Be sure to give it a look.
One of the best ways to relax and unwind is by visiting the Poring Hot Spring. There is no better way to let go of stress and ease aching muscles. Yet at the springs there is more than just warmth to expect. Before heading off be sure to check out the nearby butterfly farm, the Orchid Conservation Centre and the amazing canopy walk.
Mesilau Park is one of the most magnificent nature areas in the entire vicinity which is also home to the massive Mount Kinabalu. Indulge in the guided tour and learn more about the pitcher plants and wildlife, while slowly climbing the slopes of this beautiful summit.
Kuih Cincin is a crunchy biscuit which every traveller has to try. It is not found in Peninsular Malaysia at all. The name roughly translates to ‘ring cakes’ and is a Malay snack similar to a donut. Another delicacy which you shouldn’t miss if you like anchovies is Chili Ikan Bilis. This piquant dish goes well with beer, so be sure to give it a try.
