      Highly recommended! If you are seeking cheap and yet clean and convenient I would recommend this budget hostel. It only cost me RM25/night. The only downside is that you have to pay for Internet access. Would definitely return again.

      Simple, cheap accomodation in the city centre. No luxury but good option for one night and quite appropriate for the money.

(Great Britain is 9th on the list apparently!) Borneo Island is divided up between 3 different countries; Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei. The Malaysian part is sub divided into 2 parts, Sabah and …

      Catch up and salsa dancing

      ... all have a good catch up. We decided to go Sushi Tei again for dinner so the 5 of us decided to share a load of sushi for starters before each getting a main, where I had cold green tea soba noodles with pan fried salmon. Sam had found out that salsa dancing was happening at El Centro tonight, and since the disappointment of missing out last week she wanted to go. Everyone else was keen so we headed there and ...

      ... we laughed because we also had lunch at the restaurant called "Welcome Seafood". It was the same as yesterday. It had all the variety of fish, live in tanks with clean and transparent water, thankfully. I chose giant clams, a species of tiny lobster/crab without antennae. It was very weird, swimming backwards. We also chose a very crispy calamari and rice of course.

      ... stomachs were fine throughout the whole trip, so happy about that! After lunch we had a 45 minute journey further down the river and deeper into the jungle to reach the jungle trek part. This part of the boat ride really captured what I thought borneo would be like, with blue skies, huge dense forests as far as you could see, clear water river, the sound of birds and monkeys in the surrounding area, it was amazing. Once we left the boat we had a 9km trek through the ...
