We don't know much about Borneo at all and still not exactly sure what we're doing here and where we're going, but after breakfast this morning we decided to leave so we checked the lonely planet book and have taken a bus to somewhere called Sibu, hoping we can take a cruise up the river from here (avoiding crocs!) or a bus to another national ...

Somehow we managed to catch an earlier bus and after an hour drive we were already in the visitors centre and we found out that we were there too early and we had to wait for almost an hour for the centre to open. this was still better than missing the bus and the time passed by very quickly. we bought the ...
