Where I stayed
It was a joy to arrive a this resort by boat.
We were welcomed with a cold towel and a refreshing drink before settling into our room. A quick unpack and this time we were out in a long boat for a trip up the Kinabatangan River to see the wild life. We saw a great variety of birds (this is the place for twitchers) 3 out of the 8 Hornbills species, Proboscis Monkeys, Kingfisher.Back to the resort for dinner and their rule is "no sarong no dinner"....yes we did eat. I thought we looked quite cute!
We met a lovely Canadian, Leslie, who has been travelling throughout South East Asia alone for the past 3 months. She decided she wanted to do a boardwalk at night and invited us along.
With torches in hand we head off. It is very different going into the jungle after dark. We encountered a Praying Mantis, Bats and something with eyes. It was nice to get back to our room.
