... giant prawns like we have never seen before and unfortunately stray and abandoned cats and kittens everywhere. This palace is not for the faint hearted. We were not daunted, though I have no intention of returning either. We drank more than our fair share of the executive club free drinks, and ate some great pre dinner nibbles and then share a lovely meal at the hotel restaurant, which is huge and was mostly empty. After an unsettled night, ...

... to form a flotilla of pink, sweaty tourists all channeling our inner David Attenboroughs. And we were not disappointed; Proboscis and Macaque monkeys, Hornbills, Eagles, a Python, Egrets, Wild boar even the elusive Orang Utan. No crocodiles as the river was too flooded, much to Rans’ disgust.

I headed for a place called the 'Nature Lodge'on Kinabatangan river and spent an awesome few days doing river cruises as well as hikes through ...

Sandakan: Gomantong caves and back to KK

A travel blog entry by cramow on May 11, 2014
