Borneo itinerary-your comments welcome!

Jump to last reply

As usual, we are planning not a year in advance like so many Fodorites but just 7 weeks ahead. Inspired by Kathie’s 2005 report and others, we (me, wife, and 15 year old son) are attempting to go to Borneo for spring break. Here’s what I’ve been able to come up with given our school schedule constraints.

Day 1, 2, 3 - LA to Singapore, overnight Singapore
Day 4 - Fly to Kuching arriving early afternoon
Day 5, 6 – Kuching
Day 7 - Fly to Kota Kinabalu early pm arriving mid-afternoon, Overnight KK
Day 8 – Fly (very) early morning to Lahad Datu, Transport to Borneo Rainforest Lodge
Day 9, 10, 11 – Borneo Rainforest Lodge
Day 12 – Transport back to Lahad Datu, Further transport to Sandakan, Overnight Sandakan
Day 13 – Transport in am to Kinabatangan Riverside Lodge (or some other lodge TBD)
Day 14 – Kinabatangan Riverside Lodge
Day 15 – Transport back to Sandakan, Fly to Kuala Lumpur early pm arriving mid-afternoon
Day 16 – Fly mid-afternoon back home

Yes, this gives us just an evening in Kota Kinabalu but seems to be the price to pay in order to have some time in Kuching. An alternative would be to eliminate Kuching entirely and find something else to do in Sabah. Or eliminate time in Kinabatangan as perhaps not necessary after Borneo Rainforest Lodge?
