Another place for nature adventurers and photographers is the Lower Kinabatangan River in Sukau, Sabah. Its a 2 hours drive from Sandakan and along the way, can stop by at Sipolok (Orang Hutan Sanctuary). Many things to see along the Lower Kinabatangan river (I mean wildlife)...birds, probosis monkeys, wild elephants.....and more. This was our boatman and his younger brother preparing the boat for our morning river trip.

His name is Shuairey ( pronounce as Su Hai Ree) and his family owns and run the B&B Resort at Sukau. You can reach him at +6089565269.
What I like about this resort is they only charges what you use or eat (no package). If I am not mistaken, he charges MYR$100.00 for a 3 hours boat trip. Boat is long and can comfortably sit 4. So use less, eat less...pay less...he he.
My 5D/4N trip with 2 others only cost me around $500 (inclusive air tickets by Air Asia).
I am not sure about the other operators there.
Cheers

Like this thread! East Msia is a place i'll keep going back. They have so much to offer esp now with the opening of the budget airlines to KK.

I recommend uncle tan! (http://www.uncletan.com) They run a fuss free camp along lower kinabatangan river. expect to rough it out, be very close to nature, see lotsa wild life, bathing/washing with river water, be woken up at 6am in the morning with 'good morning! safari!' for your boat safari. their safari / hikes are usually in the early morning and evening time which makes it very good for photographers. But do not expect nice accomodation conditions, its as close to nature as you can get. Knowledgeable guides! Cheap!

Disclaimer: they have since relocated their camp from the time i last went, so i speak from my experience at the old camp!

Must put TRULY ASIA:kok:
Tag line mah, so put lor. Well, kinda true also. Other than Singapore, Malaysia is the largest country with a wide range of culture n history. Like Singapore, various parts of Malaysia had became colonies or some sort in the past.

U are welcome. I pretty like this country n it's the nearest to drive up in my own car. I can also consider as half Malaysian (Penang).

I am from Taiping, I love Menglembu peanuts since my childhood, very near to my home town.;)
With the new highway, I can no longer stop over at Taiping when I visit Penang. My memories of Taiping was the zoo.


As long as I can remember, there was never any groundnut farms in Menglembu...this place was better known for the tin mines...I am still clueless why "menglembu groundnuts"....

Ya, very surprising that Menglembu peanuts were not planting in Menglembu:think:

My wife and I were talking about a visit to the Menglembu peanut farm one day::bsmilie:

I think Taiping has a very scenic Taiping Lake Gerden which is a very ideal place to take pictures. Wide angle lens will be ideal. BTW I am an old Hua Lian boy。

I love traveling bycar to enjoy the scenic Malaysia spots, sometimes to Penang and further up to Kedah to view the padi filed, a bit suaku..:bsmilie:
