    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.

    Man of the forest

    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 …

    Off to Sardine Can, Borneo

    A travel blog entry by kenax on Apr 30, 2014

    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 …

    Had a good night sleep (thank goodness). Woke up early to carry out project 'Get to Sandakan'. We needed to get a taxi to take us to the bus stop where we could get a bus to take us to the bus station where we would find a bus to Sandakan. Complicated, I know! The plan was:
    Leave the hostel at 8.00am.
    Get a taxi to the first bus stop. …

    ... was refusing to release me, damming me to a life in the transport abyss for all eternity. I managed to get a hold of myself telling nobody in particular that I would refuse to allow these lands to take me prisoner. Such resolve resulted in a resurgence of efficiency from the bus driver, and although folk still tried to hinder us by choosing to go to Legazpi on this day (as if driven by an unforeseen force), we managed to make it to the airport with 50 minutes to spare. ...

    ... way to the Jetty to Turtle Islands, stopping off at the mechanics so Terrance could pay and to pick up some water to take with us. The journey to the island was an hour as we travelled 30-40km north of Sandakan - a little choppy in parts but realistically fine. During our journey we were flanked (potentially coincidentally) by two police boats who patrol the waters around Borneo with The Philippines being only a few kilometres away. As we slowed to pull up to the island two turtles ...
