"The beauty is suffocating, and snorkeling is also good, but the baby refuses to go to the sea and only knows to play in the sand! ! You can watch sea turtles in the water. We also watched releasing baby sea turtles and watching sea turtles nesting at night! The house we live in is a combination of water and beach, lucky house number four! ! You can have a panoramic view of all the beautiful scenery on the island! ! Awesome! ! ! Highly recommended! ! !"

"Visiting Sepilok Ape-Man Sanctuary was one of the highlights of our trip, because we had other friends to experience it first and thought it was a must-see attraction. We were definitely not disappointed! We came here with a small tour group and our tour guide was very familiar with the facilities. Visiting the Nuseri area, you can first see the lives of a dozen orangutans. Watching them eat, swing, and interact with the staff, it feels great. The outdoor feeding platform also provided a wonderful sight. We admired about six orangutans, including a mother and her child. We only stayed for an hour to observe these beautiful animals. The protection center apparently has done some very special work in caring for and relocating orangutans, and the video information provided is very rich. I can understand that because of the large number of guests, although there are many places to watch on the day we went, it may be very busy, so you need to choose your visit date/time. It is definitely worth a visit to see the orangutans and better understand the valuable information provided by the center."

"I really like it here (Rainforest Adventure Center). I also visited the nearby Sepilok Ape Man Reserve (about 20 minutes on foot-no taxi). I really enjoyed the tranquility here. Because part of Sepilok Ape Man Reserve is very busy (a lot of tourists). There are some breathtaking elevated walkways, suspension bridges and bird watching towers. And you will feel that you and Conglin have become one, a great experience! We were lucky to see an orangutan during our visit. In the 15th district, even if you can only hear some birdsong, this area is also very suitable for walking around. We also saw a small snake, black hornbill, big squirrel and squirrel. I went back to the 30th district for a night trip and saw flying squirrels, slow loris, kingfishers, vipers and owls."

"Built in the 18th century, the church was made of stones. It was a Japanese barracks and prisoner-of-war camp during the Japanese occupation during World War II. The glass painting in the church is very exquisite and was made by the master. Buying a ticket for ten ringgits can be used to enter and take pictures. The old church has a long history. The Chinese eldest sister told us about it."

"The fishing village is also the place where many ethnic minorities live in Indonesia. The industry here is not very developed. The average living standard of the whole person is relatively backward and poor. There are many people who eat at sea in the fishing village. The fishing industry is not very advanced. It is relatively traditional."

"Bears and monkeys are great attractions. Especially when a bear climbs a tree up to 40 feet high. The goal is to return the bears to the wild, and talking to any staff will show their care for bears. Because of their short stature, they have become victims of the pet trade, and the center is doing its utmost to reduce the damage."

Temple
M32***23
"Have you seen a lot of Buddhist temples built on the top of the mountain? Have you seen many beautiful seas? However, a landscape that combines these two elements into one is not common, is it? There are many Chinese Buddhist temples in Sabah, Malaysia, and Puji Temple in Sandakan is one of them. Puji Temple is located on the top of Shizui Mountain at the southern end of Sandakan City. It was completed in 1987 and cost 7 million ringgits, equivalent to 16 million RMB. It is the largest and tallest temple in Sandakan. The Puji Temple is outstanding not only because of its huge and magnificent investment, but also because it was built on the top of the mountain, but also because here, you can have a panoramic view of Sandakan Bay while chanting and praying. . The combination of high mountain Buddhist temple and sea view, Puji Temple in Sandakan is a must!"

"We don't want to be out of the ordinary, the Delamarcote Forest Reserve provides these. We booked it with Adventure Alternative Borneo. The 2-night stay was great. We tried the four-wheel drive safari at dawn, afternoon and evening, accompanied by our lovely and very knowledgeable guide Macallister to hunt for wild animals . We saw a few pygmy elephants, the long trip to the river is worth it! The accommodation has everything you need, including suites and air conditioning, all food is provided, freshly prepared food. If you are walking on forest paths, beware of leeches! This is a good experience."
