Tentative Borneo itinerary - any suggestions?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are going diving and will be adding on land tours both before and after going on our liveaboard dive boat. Note that the itinerary has a little more flying back and forth than I would like, but in order not to have to drag 100 lbs of dive gear all over the place, we need to leave stuff in KK, so that's why it will look a bit weird.

At first, I wanted to have all hotels/activities nailed down tight, but the more I read, the more open I am to being flexible and taking suggestions from those who have come before me. So...

Day 1 - 3 Arrive KK in evening and look around next 2 days; leave gear in KK.

Day 4 - 6 Go to Sandakan and overnight Turtle Island and 2 nights on the Kinabatangan River.

Day 7 By car to Lahad Datu and stay overnight

Day 8 - 10 Borneo Rainforest Lodge

Day 11 Fly back to KK and meet up with dive group

Day 12 More KK

Day 13 - 23 Dive Sipadan/Mabul on the Celebes Explorer

Day 14 Back to KK

Day 15 FLY TO Kuching

Day 16 - 23 Explore Kuching, Bako, maybe longhouse and up river

Day 24 - 25 fly to Mulu and hike

Day 26 Return KK

Day 27 Leave Borneo

The questions are:

1. How to divide up the time in Kuching area

2. What to do with days in KK

3. Where to stay in Kinabatangan - it is choice between Sukau Rainforest Lodge or Kinabatangan Riverside Lodge

4. Is there a best place to have a chance to see turtles laying in April or is Selingan the only one to stay on for this.

Any suggestions would be appreciated, as the more I read guide books, the more confused I get. One wants to do everything, but obviously, can't! Thanks.
