The valley district of Tambunan is a part of the Interior Division of Sabah in Malaysia. One of the best features of this area is its all-year-round mild tropical climate. The terraced paddy fields and scattered villages make for a picturesque holiday destination which can be visited at any time of the year. This region is filled with natural beauty and the landmarks of this area are both fascinating and beautiful. Here we’ll be taking a closer look at Tambunan and its amazing attractions.

Its close proximity to Kota Kinabalu makes it a great mid-way point to begin your exploration of the area. From the tropical rainforests to old-world architecture and engineering, there is a lot to see and do in and around Tambunan.
Tambunan has a great range of places to stay, spanning every price bracket. The most affordable accommodation is the budget to 2-star hotels available near the town centre. The Sompoton Tambunan roundabout region is the best place to look for accommodation ranging from basic rooms to 3-star rest houses.
Along the river is another great area to shop around. Here you will find guesthouses and homestays which rival any hotel in the area. The quality of accommodation is outstanding and the rates are highly competitive. If you are looking for a comfortable stay which is away from the noise of the central region of town, shop along the banks of the river.
The Mahau Waterfall is a great spot on unwind. The tropical surroundings and icy cold waters are a refreshing change from the hustle and bustle of the outside world. The calm atmosphere will help you to centre yourself while enjoying a memorable picnic. No visitor to Tambunan should miss out on the chance to spend time at this beautiful area.
The Kipandi Buttefly Farm is a great place to explore the mountain ranges from. At roughly one hour from Kota Kinabalu, this area is secluded and well-preserved. The drive across the Crocker mountain range is a majestic journey, while the park itself contains countless varieties of flora and fauna, as well as many rare species of butterflies. The wild orchids here are thriving and magnificent, giving tourists some great photo opportunities. The guides are friendly and the areas you are taken to are unforgettable, don’t overlook this tranquil area.
The colonial steam train supplies a nostalgic journey through the northern region of Borneo. The well-preserved British colonial design can be seen at many of the train stations along the way, while the British Vulcan steam locomotive is a true gem of history. Breakfast is served upon the train, with the staff outfitted in traditional colonial attire. All visitors to Sabah should grab the chance to take a trip on this train. The stops along the way are fascinating. From the moment that you depart from the Tanjung Aru Station, you are rewarded with service of the highest quality and passage through some of the most interesting areas in Malaysia.
The Rafflesia Centre hosts one species alone, Rafflesia pricei, the massive flower which only blooms for three to five days of the year. Not every bud blooms and it takes six to seven months before you can see which will flourish and open into a flower. Make sure to give the centre a call to ensure that your trip is well timed to the blooming of the Rafflesia flower. This rare chance to see one of the scarcest flowers in the world should not be missed.
Food in the valley district of Tambunan is a broad range of ethnic food which delivers a span of over one-hundred meals in total. Each year the Kadazan Dusun Cultural Association hosts the Tambunan Food and Cuisine Festival.
