      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.

      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.

We paid RM60/pp entrance into the sanctuary which was really too much for what it was I thought. There was no information whatsoever and it just didn't feel like a sanctuary. There was a feeding at 11.30am but no staff around really to explain anything. Along with fruit and vegetables they were also given bread to eat which seemed a bit ...

It was particularly sweet to see a rare 3 nests together -- one for baby-bear, mama-bear & pappa-bear -- because the fathers don't usually stick around unless they've taken a special liking to the mum & bub. The treks were pretty tough due to the heat and also because its relatively raw jungle, not the nicely made paths I normally take from my holiday resort. ...

I had a little read of the info about the orangutans they have there. Apparently the ones with more hair are female, the men tend to be more bald, they had a dominant female in there called Mimi whom a lot of the others were scared of. Anyway, we made our way in and there was already one orangutan playing around on the ropes and trees. ...
