Müde -____-
Um 5:45 läutete der Wecker, da die Busse nach Semporna aufgrund der Entfernung schon sehr früh losfuhren...schnell frühstücken, ins Taxi und auf zur Busstation! Dort wurden wir gleich mal von einer Horde Malayen attackiert, die uns natürlich alle für ihre Busfirmen gewinnen wollten...wir …

Snorkeler's Paradise

A travel blog entry by eschildermans


Mabul Island, off of the coast of Semporna, is a major attraction for divers who are looking for a chance to get to the world famous dive spot of Sipidan. Not being a diver, I have learned that where there is good diving, there is often good snorkelling. An hour boat ride out from Semporna, the island is home to 2000 "sea gypsies" who are living …

Scuba Junkies - Addicted to Paradise in Borneo

A travel blog entry by ellie.willitts


After leaving Mummy on 7th March we had two weeks to explore Malaysia before meeting the Turns in Bangkok. We had no real plans and spent ages deciding where to go.... When we got a message from KB's uni friend, Max who was working at a scuba centre in Borneo. OOO Borneo we can learn to dive and maybe see an orangutan! So we book a flight and then …

    nice hotel, clean and well maintained. Across the road from the diving school and close to the wharf. A restaurant either side. The Scuba Junkie cafe serves good meals. A reasonable breakfast is included.
    Overcharged for bus fare to Lahad Datu though - more than 50%. That was a shock. Don't be lazy - walk to the bus station and buy bus tickets yourself.
