‪If you're on your way to Poring Hotspring this is also a good place to drop by. In our case our itinerary was this Cowboy town, Upside down Museum, Mt.Kinabalu Park, Desa Farm, Poring Hotspring, Rabbit Farm and lastly the Rafflesia Flowers.
It was indeed a busy day but starting here was worth it. We went there around 8:30 am it is not yet open but they opened for us. There's really not much to see though so it's only for a few minutes that we stayed. If you just wanted to feel the cowboy place and some mangrove forest its a place to see.
We enjoyed picture taking at the mangrove forest it feels fresh and calming. We were not able to go deeper into the forest since we are on a time constraint schedule.
There is also a horse riding area where you may rent their horse. We didn't try since its still to early and the horses are still at the barn during that time plus the clock is ticking as we just finished enjoying the view.

This place can be considered a must visit if you have plenty of time in Kota Kinabalu but if not, you may skip and move on to Kinabalu park and Desa Farm where you would more likely enjoy best. :-)

‪Overprice entrance fee‬
אוק׳ 2018 • חברים
‪The entrance price is RM10 only but there's no interesting activities can be found there. However, as I walked in I felt Australian vibe a bit due to its cowboy lodges and you could see a lot of horses coming from different countries. After the lodges, you would find a mangrove park & a large field where you could see different types of animals. ‬

‪Horse Riding!‬
יוני 2018 • משפחה
‪This place offers horse riding (at RM10 per 1 small round) and there are pathways made from wood at the mangroove area. At the time of our visit, there is a man who sells outlined batik and we can color it as we want starting from RM5. Nice souvenir to take back home.

There is a restaurant near the mangroove area, the food is okay although a bit pricey than at normal restaurants would charge.

From what we heard from the staffs, this place is owned by the state's previous CM.‬

‪Awesome Sabandar Cowboy Town, Tuaran‬
אוג׳ 2018 • משפחה
‪Entrance fee of RM10 with complimentary Iced Tea is cheap. Staff was friendly and we were told that students are charged at only RM5. Parking space for those driving was ample.
My family enjoyed the horse carriage ride to the beautiful Tuaran Beach. We were allowed to tour the beach and have fresh coconut drink by the seaside. Fee for horse carriage ride is RM25.00 per head. The Horse named Black with 2 ‘cowboys’ led us to the beach and on return journey back to the Lodge, my daughter was allowed to manage Black. Wonderful experience for her!
Awesome nature walk to the great mangrove park where visitors can sit back and relax during your walk. The mangrove park is clean and well maintained. There is a Bamboo Restaurant at the mangrove park. Children can do colouring at the open space with a rate of RM5-RM10 per painting.‬

‪Mangroves and horses are great. But that's all about it.‬
דצמ׳ 2017 • משפחה
‪This place could be better. The mangroves are really great. Although we didn't get to do the horse riding, the horses looked great. But warning sign should be put up on feeding them. While most horses are friendly, one horse bit one of the visitor's head when we were there. There was a housing construction behind this area. This really spoiled the view and feel of this cowboy town. There are quite a few eating places here, but it didn't entice us much to try. I didn't see many people eat in the restaurants. Overall, this place needs a lot of improvement and maintenance.‬

‪Visited this place on the 9th Dec 2017.
The first impression was WOW! A Cowboy Town! And that was it.

The place is a bit not tourist friendly. Guest has to make their way to the entrance counter, the staff is really unfriendly and no briefing or clear instruction given. Went there with my Brother and his family with 4 children all below 7 years old. The counter girl said only pay for the adult, and children will be free, she then told us to get the welcome drinks at the restaurant, which later we found out that the complimentary drinks are only for paying customer. For entrance fee of rm10 per adults, they should let the children get the complimentary drinks too.

While I dont mind the place charging the entrance fee, this place should have more things, example;
1. they should have their staff wearing some cowboy outfit, it has been promoted as cowboy attraction but there are no cowboys to be found
2. Have some more activity or attractions other than horse ride; have some cowboy photobooth for the children, simple activity games for the children
3. Staff as usher to help confused guest as where and how to get things around the place

-Horse ride was fun but quick (we took the 1 round ride)
-Mangrove walk was good
-We did not managed to catch the time to see the fireflies as we were there during day time.
-The horses all looks fine, in a good care in my opinion.

The place has potential, they only need to think of adding more activities to do in the place, and make it more tourist friendly environment.

‪Mangrove Park‬
אוק׳ 2017 • משפחה
‪Most visitor is talking about the horse riding and forgotten there is a very nice mangrove park. It is clean with a Bamboo Restaurant and a handy craft shop in the small forest. Children can do coloring in the shop. At the moment there are building some more wooden hut in the park but not sure what is it for. I surely enjoyed in the mangrove nature walk. You can also sit back and relax during your walk.
They charged RM10 per entry which include a cup of Ice Tea. I suspect some people didn't pay as they did not have any coupon for their drinks or skip the Bamboo Restaurant.
The horse riding is RM10 for one round and RM15 for two. Two round is about 5 minutes ride for about 400-500 meters. I don't understand is the jockey or workers take a bit too long to prepare the horse. You can ride a horse in any attire you are wearing and they will provide a safety helmet.
There is also a place to stay call Cowboy Lodge.
I was told there is a firefly river cruise at night I didn't join.‬

‪Not A Must Go.‬
אוק׳ 2017 • עסקי
‪I would not recommend this place. The entrance fee and compulsory complimentary drink are way too expensive for (gasp) a horse ride that lasts less than 5 minutes. Also, personally, I do not support nor do I see riding animals as a form of leisure activity.

Was there for work purpose. The only saving grace for this place was the mangrove. Clean and spacious toilets but not exactly a strong reason for anyone to come here.‬

‪Good place to go with family and friends. The horses could be treated better though because some of them looked like they were sad. Nice restaurant, Bamboo Restaurant if im not mistaken. ‬
