    Stinky shit hole and dishonest owner. Sea too polluted to swim in, no beach, people quite nice though. Check out the cheesy karaoke/girly bars on Singapore Road!

    Great value at £12 a night. We got a welcome lemongrass brew and banana fritters from a family recipe on arrival. Free wifi, and pancakes tomorrow for breakfast.

    We headed out to Sepilok opting to take a taxi as the bus wasn't leaving until 9 and we wanted to make sure we could see the 10am feeding at the centre.

    20 minutes out of the city, we reached the centre where we were confronted by curious children on a school trip. They were "very proud" to speak to us in English and even taught us some …

    After staying in D'Geting almost a month and finally meeting with the important customs people, I was told that they simply cannot give me a permit to enter the country with my bike without the original, Thai-manufactured license plate (a two month process to produce in Bangkok, for some reason). And supposedly my name was not registered in the …

The only close encounter I got during that first jump was with humans and their flippers; I found myself having to revert to some strange form of synchronised swimming in order to dodge these water swords, which had inevitably caused one of our group to bleed. This whole madness and selfish behaviour reinforced my dislike for most humans, for not only were they oblivious to the people around them who may not be comfortable in ...

    Leaving Sandakan today to head out to stay on the Kinabatangan River for 3 days and 2 nights. We woke this morning to find the hotel surrouded by army personnel carrying automatic weapons. We went out for a look, as you do, and to see if we could find out what was going on. They didn't seem interested in us so off we went for breakfast. On our way back we noticed somewhat of a crowd ...

    We got dropped off in Sepilok at a roundabout where the bus continued onto Sandakan and we along with two other British sisters from London- Sophie and Esme. Hopped into some guys Ute and he took us to Forest Edge Lodge. It was really quite fancy! It was beautiful, lanterns everywhere, a restaurant area looking out onto vast green vegetation. Beautiful colourful birds, butterflies ...
