Open water diver: checkkk!

A travel blog entry by gunduana


I'm not going to say more about Semporna than: it is a stinky mess.

But, it was our gate way city to the island of Mabul, Borneo, the
only island in this region with budget accommodation. The litter
and pollution followed us to the island and it is frustrating to see

A travel blog entry by dpcw

Early start 5.30 had last river cruise at 6. Didn't see anything more than yesterday but was nice and fresh taking an early morning cruise. Breakfast & left @ 8.30. Mini bus drove us about half hour to another stop where we caught a coach for 45 ringit each to Semporna 5 hour journey. Semporna is an absolute dump & smells fowl everywhere, …

Ich erkunde mit Sarah die Insel, es gibt hier noch ein Traumurlaubs - Resort auf Stelzenhaeusern im Meer und auch viele Philippinos, die ihre Holzbuden hier hin bauen. Wir sehen uns die Schule an und geniessen die Sicht auf das Meer bei Uncle Chans auf der …

a bit dirty, especially the toilet. the electrical wires of the lighting is sometimes out of order during our stay. bed is comfortable. but if you don't dive with Scuba Junkie, don't stay here, will be double of the divers price!!
