Borneo tips

Hi Hi

Am planning to travel to Borneo in December. Any suggestions for good places to visit which arent touristic hotspots? As far as I read the Malaysian part is more touristic than the Indonesian side.
Any way - I would love to see both Malasyan and Indonesian side.
Is passing the border on land possible? Can I get a visa at the border? (Dutch & Belgian passports)
Local flights in the Malasyan part look easy and cheap. What about the Indonesian part? Are there any direct flights inbetween the…

Hi all, my parents have decided to take my 2 daughters (aged 1 and 2) with them to Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur - 5 days) and Indonesia (Jakarta - 7 days) next month. I thought I should help them plan an itinerary.

I'm hoping to do some research over the next days myself but I thought I should throw it out there in case anyone has any suggestions for Malaysia.

They have been to Kuala Lumpur and Putra Jaya before.

I believe they would prefer natural things like water falls, beaches, zoo and hot…

Hi,

Myself and my fiancee are getting married on the 10th August 2017 and are planning to go on our honeymoon for 2 weeks departing between 12-14th August 2017. We have never been to Malaysia before, however we have heard some good things about Langkawi and Tioman island. We have no idea about areas to stay or if the weather would be warm and preferably with minimal rain at this time of year?

Hi all,

My husband and I are hoping to climb Mount Kinabalu independently – as in not through a tour package – next February (12/13th).

I have received quotes from some tour companies for a 1N/2D package that are working out to be about £350pp, and if my calculations are right, arranging the trek independently would cost about £210pp.

I have read a couple of blogs from people who have done this trek independently, and their process for organising the trek seems to have followed the below…

Hi, I have only two days in the Park and was hoping to book onto the 'Garden of Eden Valley' & Canopy walk, i tried using the Mulu park site but it seems to be just a contact form rather than booking form, also it states minimum 3 people and i'm a single traveler. Is there any way of booking ahead and not be part of a group.
Thanks

Are flights between KL and Sarawak considered international or domestic? I don't need VISA to enter Malaysia. I want to get overland to Malaysia from Thailand (something I did last year) and then fly to Sarawak. Will they ask me to provide any onward ticket? Would ticket out of Indonesia back to Malaysia be good?
