12 days on Borneo need itinerary advice

Jump to last reply

I will soon be obtaining award tickets to visit Borneo for May of 2014. We will fly on Asiana via ICN, and they only fly to KK. We can leave from Kuching by buying a ticket to SIN and flying OZ to Seoul from there. We can spend up to 12 days on the ground in Malaysian Borneo. I need to return via Seoul as I want to stopover there for 2 nights on the way back to the US. Before I get the award tix I want to have set what cities I will use entering and leaving Borneo.

I'm looking for a do-it-yourself itinerary that takes in KK, Sepilok, a Kinabatangan River lodge for 3D2N, snorkeling, and Kuching. I will fly around versus take buses. Visiting Mulu National Park also interests me.

Is this too much to do in 12 days? This will be a first visit to this part of Malaysia. Would adding Mulu be too much? Is trying to fit Sarawak in too much?

I've looked at sample itineraries offered by tour companies but can't find one that is just right. So I'm asking the SE Asian experts here for advice. We are experienced travelers, not afraid to go without a tour, fit and healthy, late 50' early 60's.
