    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.

    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. …

    ... other small lizards, a Peta bird (very rare apparently), some big millipedes and spiders. Also lots of leeches, I had some on my clothing which I didn't like but I had covered up well luckily so none of them actually bite me. Rob had the same socks on as me but unluckily one managed to bite him through his sock and suck his blood. We also saw elephant tracks and elephant poo, they were here about a month ago Azman said. It was ...

    ... for making me the happiest man blah blah, and we all made the interesting (and for some of us dignity-removing) manoeuvre of changing boats in a fast running river. Joy unbridled to be back on dry land, drenched but elated. As we took off our life-jackets and set about wringing out our clothes, there was another huge crack of lightening and all the power to the lodge was lost.

    ... there was a small Orangutan most likely a teenager. We crept forwards and to where the couple were along with another bloke and were only a few feet away from the impressive human like creature. I wasn't sure how wild it was but it must have been raised at the sanctuary as it was not obviously not phazed by human presence and we would not have disturbed or distressed a wild one if it showed any signs of being bothered by humans.

    We sat and watched ...
