Between its intriguing wildlife, skyscraper-height jungle canopies, and gorgeous coastlines teeming with tropical fish, this magical stretch of Borneo is positively bursting with stuff to see and do. This eight-day adventure promises to keep you busy; time spent marvelling at natures glory in Turtle Island National Park, close encounters with orangutans at a rehabilitation centre, prowling the streets of Kota Kinabalu by night, and the otherworldly wonders of Borneo. Borneo has it all, and in East Sabah, its all close at hand.
