Booking trips now or over there?

Hi, Going to Rasa Ria hotel in February for ten days

is it best to book some trips now or wait until we get there?

Have been looking at some web sites but not sure, would like to go Sepilok and also Sukau river but all say flights not included so do I have to book them myself now?

If I wait will there still be flights available.

Thanks.

February is not high season should be ok.

For Sepilok (located at Sandakan)visit you can just walk in to see the sanctuary.

For Sukau go to this site

http://www.uncletan.com/

Suggest to book flight in advance.

Flight booking

malaysiaairlines.com

www.airasia.com

Your internal flight guide and land transfer

a)Kota kinabalu to Sandakan for Sepilok

b)Sandakan to Sukau by road

c) return to KK>>Sandakan or Tawau to Kota Kinabalu

Have a nice trip

for Sepilok, you dont need to book a tour, at least not from KK including the flight.

you can easily book the flight yourself and then before you go there, contact a local tour-operator in Sandakan (google-ing for it is easy) who will take u to SepiloK (which is not really far from SDK-airport).

You don't need a tour operator for Sepilok, you simply take a taxi from the airport and see yourself around when you arrive.
