I faced two of my biggest fears (mostly) without tears. I witnessed a once in a lifetime event. And I spent the day in one of the most beautiful places on earth. All in all, it wasn’t a bad last day in Borneo.
Our trip to Sandakan to see the orang-utans inspired us to discover more of Sabah’s wildlife.
From our base in Kota Kinabalu, we arranged another primate-themed day-trip, through an eco-tour company, based in the Horizon Hotel.
We would cruise down the Klias River searching for Malaysian Borneo’s other famous inhabitant, the proboscis monkey.
Rather than tell you about our river cruise, we decided to show you what we saw. So come along on a photo tour of the Klias River with us:
Nothing can describe the feeling of seeing the jungle leaves begin to rustle and you spot your first glimpse of a wild orangutan. On our recent trip to Borneo, we were among the lucky few who experience this thrill.
It all began with a Skyscanner search. Where could we fly cheaply from Hong Kong to escape the busy city for a week?
“Where the heck is Kota Kinabalu?” Andrew looked back at me blankly.
Just over a month ago, we announced our big plans for CheeseWeb’s Asian Adventure 2013. This Wednesday, we returned from that incredible journey. It’s going to take us some time to process all of our thoughts and experiences (not to mention our photos!), but today we want to share just a little taste of what we saw, did, ate and felt over those two amazing weeks.
