First trip to borneo


So,I have some money to spare (2grand ish) and around 3 weeks holiday to play with. Ive always wanted to do Borneo, and wanted to get peoples thoughts on the things to see and do. Sandakan looks like to place to visit, to travel to Sepilok and turtle island. Any other places on the islands? If not is it worth extending the trip further afield to HK. I want it to be a mix of adventure and relaxation as its my first holiday in 5 years.

All ideas welcome

First off Borneo is great and we spent 2 months travelling around the island, so rest assured there is a lot to see and do.

However Sandakan per se is not so great, it is really just a gateway to other places, in particular the Kinabatangan area.

Also the places you mention are in the Malayasian portion of Borneo. So you may get more response on that forum
