Rose Garden, Kundasang, Sabah

I had the opportunity to visit this garden recently. It is located in Kundasang, just a few metres from the War Memorial Museum. Going to the place, you have in enter a secondary road.

This garden belongs to the private company and you have to pay RM3.00 for the entrance. It is full of roses and cactuses. This garden supplies some of its flowers to the city. Although it is named as rose garden, it has other flowers too.

The red rose, very strong in scent.

This not roses; its flowers are used as medicine for curing insect bites.

Different colours, it looks like a hybrid.

Behind the rose garden is a large agricultural area and a village.

If you happen to visit the rich agricultural areas of Kundasang, you can visit this place. It also has a simple eating place for you to quench your thirst and has a light meal. Happy travelling.


  1. i love roses, specially those with great smell, i saw some roses in vietnam and Thailand without the smell, just wondered why

  2. When you are having a Burma trip, you wonder when come to Myanmar where to go first? The answer may be Yangon. This is the most active city of Myanmar. It’s a commercial and modern city, and it’s known as the former city of Burma. Come to Yangon, you only have a chance to see the busy of the urban, you can also feel the sacred atmosphere when you visit Shwedagon or enjoy the peaceful moment when take a boat trip to Inle Lake. As you can see, if you want to learn more about the culture of a nation, you should visit their market and hang out with the locals. Drop by Bogyoke Aung San Market to buy slipper and a longyi to start your journey in Myanmar.
