This is a cheap hotel and facilities are very basic. No washbasin to brush your teeth. Noisy. Somebody knocked on my door at 03.00 in the morning trying to open it.

One shot I even had the flash on which could have easily cause her to react violently. Thank goodness my stupidly didn't last long enough to ...
... allowed us to swim as and when we needed to, and the national park is directly across the river. We decided to just do a 6 hour jungle trek, the next day(if it wasn't raining) to try to see orang utans in the wild. They do offer 2-5 day treks, but reading about the toilet arrangements I couldn't cope with going into the jungle with my toilet roll!!! We ended up being very lucky and saw 5 wild orang utans, and 1 who had been rehabilitated into the wild, with her baby(wild). But, ...
