I was expecting to enter a big, highly commercialized flower farm; but to surprise, my driver stopped at a hut along the Main road. There were about three other vehicles, all with Japanese tourists. Paid MYR10 , signed a logbook and walked through what looked like a trail going to someone's backyard farm. It was a nice walk, and along the way, you get to see trees with white paste dripping to small containers at the base of the tree. Rubber tree, I suppose? And then there it was!!! Sheltered by tall trees, and still protected by a small wooden fence, the Rafflesia!!!

It is not always there so you need a guide. When it has flower you will see a banner posted. Quite interesting but you have to endure the trip. Quite far.

The plants when in flower are large nearly a metre across. Check something is in flower before visiting

Don't set off for this place unless you have definite information that it is open. We could not find out for sure and had a wasted long difficult trip. It looked like it had not been open for a while.

We were so lucky to get to see a full bloom that was 3 days old as well as see another bud working it’s way. We were told that this wasn’t a normal time for bloom so being able to see one was even more special. There were also other great trees and vegetation to learn about.
