Explore Borneo

From the time you arrive in Sabah, this holiday is an adventure -

but not one which will make you feel you need another holiday to recover!!

A real combination of lazy days and busy days,

makes sure you see all there is to see in northern Borneo


You also have plenty of time to explore the city of Kota Kinabalu, with its seafront and pavement restaurants— just wander the centre of the city to take in the ambience of its mixture of Asian and Western lifestyles -  shop in the local markets and airconditioned shopping malls -  relax at the hotel poolside and on one of the fabulous coral islands of Tunku Abdul Rahman Park.

With visits to Sepilok Orang utan Rehabilitation Centre, a cultural village. plus two nights at a jungle lodge, this must be one of the best tours to Sabah, in Malaysian Borneo.
