Comments/suggestions on Borneo itinerary

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be vacationing in Malaysian Borneo in May 2014. I think I've worked out an independent touring itinerary. I'd like to see what Fodorites who have been there think of my plan. My arriving and departing flights are set and cannot be changed as they are award tickets.

May 9 Arrive BKI @12:20am on OZ 757, from the US, hang out, hotel in KK
May 10 snorkel at Tunku Abdul Rahman Park, hotel KK
May 11 fly BKI-SAN in morning. Visit Sepilok. Transfer to Kinabatangan Lodge, which one yet to be determined, hotel lodge
May 12 river lodge activities, hotel lodge
May 13 fly SAN-KCH in afternoon, hotle KCH
May 14 fly KCH-Mulu on nonstop in morning, park activities, hotel Mulu
May 15 park activities, hotel Mulu
May 16 park in morning, fly Mulu-KCH afternoon, hotel KCH
May 17 visit Bako Park, hotel KCH
May 18 visit Semengoh hotel KCH
May 19 explore Kuching, hotel KCH
May 20 afternoon flight to Singapore, layover
May 21 fly SIN-ICN at 12:10am SQ 608

Does this order of doing things and flights make sense? An alternate would be on May 13 to either stay in Sandakan, then fly to Mulu on the 14 or fly SAN-BKI, stay there, then fly to Mulu on 5/14. or I can stay one more day in KK and one less in Kuching.

I have not made any hotel reservations yet nor bought any domestic air tickets. I think I have the Kinabatangan lodge choices narrowed down to 2:
Abai Jungle Lodge or Sukau Rainforest Lodge. Both offer a similar 2 day package.

Suggestions and comments are welcome and needed before I start making final plans. Thanks in advance for your input.
