Desa Dairy Farm & Kundasang’s Market


After Crystal Hill, our next stop was the famous Desa Dairy Farm. This was my first visit there though I’ve been to Ranau quite a number of time. So of course I was excited. It is the Sabah’s New Zealand after all.

We arrived at Desa Dairy Farm at around 10am or so and it was already packed with people. The thing I don’t like about going to mainstream place is the crowd. It suffocates me. But it’s something I have to live with anyway.

Once we entered the building, we straight away went to get some gelato. I opted for the chocolate but having tasted the yogurt flavour from a friend I think yogurt won over chocolate. So go for the yogurt one if you go there. But it would be best to try both so you can decide for yourself which flavour  you like the most.


As expected, the view is astonishingly beautiful. However, due to the rain I didn’t really get to see the view that I saw all over the internet. We didn’t even get to see the full view of Mount Kinabalu. Thanks to you, rain.

While there we were practically just walking around the building, bought a cold sausage and fresh milks, and also fed a cow with a grass that you can buy at the counter. Our time there was mostly spent inside the building. So I was a bit frustrated not having the chance to actually enjoy the beautiful scenery. Definitely will come back. So did Desa Dairy Farm reached my expectation? Definitely. I love the picturesque scenery.

We then headed for Dreamworld Resort but it was raining heavily and we only stayed in the van for about 30minutes. Because we couldn’t get out, we decided to go to the Kundasang’s famous market. It was still raining when we reached there. Though I was frustrated with the rain, it didn’t really spoiled my mood as I was happily buying some fruits though I was freezing to death. Hehe.

After buying everything we wanted, we headed to our next stop which was the Arnab Village. A new attraction site in Ranau but I’ll do a separate post on that.
