Intrepid tour of Borneo - part 1

The first few days of our tour. We are travelling with a great bunch of Aussies, one German and one Kiwi. Two are in camera clubs and there has been lots of comparing notes. Quite a few are teachers or ex-teachers. Lots of fun.

Day 1 Kota Kinabalu

An intriguing city between the Borneo jungle and the South China Sea, Kota Kinabalu has a charm that can only be found in a frontier town.

Day 2 Mt Kinabalu

Featuring beautiful nature trails and diverse flora and fauna, Kinabalu National Park encompasses the lowland tropical forest surrounding the imposing peak of Mt Kinabalu.

Day 3 Poring Hot Springs

Warm sulphur water is piped into several open-air Japanese-style baths at Poring Hot Springs, which are said to have curative properties for the skin.

Day 4 Kinabatangan River

A small village near the mouth of the Kinabtangan River, Sukau is surrounded by protected forest reserves which contain some of Borneo's highest concentrations of wildlife.
