Borneo Highlights

    Located in Sandakan, this rehabilitation centre was set up in 1964 to rehabilitate ophaned orangutan. Watch the orang utan up close in their natural habitat. A boardwalk leads to a viewing gallery and feeding platform where the orang utan are fed milk and bananas twice a day. While rehabilitation is the main goal here, the creation of the reserve also minimises the impact of deforestation.
     If you are a keen diver, this is the place to go. Formed by living corals growing on top of an extinct volcano, this area is now rated by many dive journalists as one of the top diving destinations in the world. It is located in the Celebes Sea off the east coast of Sabah.
    Every Sunday in Kota Kinabalu, Gaya Street is closed off to traffic and traders set up their stalls. Shop for anything, from batik sarongs, fruits and flowers, arts and craft to footwear, antiques and souvenirs. If you like coffee, pick up some local Tenom coffee.
    This spectacular cave system, deep in Sarawak’s Gunung Mulu National Park near Miri, has over 200kms of cave passages. Over millennia the flow of water has cut deep gorges through the Park’s limestone mountains and within the rock itself creating a network of vast caves. The main underground attractions of the Mulu Caves include Clearwater Cave the longest cave in South East Asia and Deer Cave. 
    On the east coast of Sabah, stay overnight at the lodge, so you can see turtles come ashore to lay eggs 365 nights of the year. It is one of the most important turtle breeding spots in South East Asia.
