The trip was physically demanding and the high humidity made it even more so. I was one of the older people on the trip and I did physical preparation in the lead up to the trip and I think this was important in helping me to cope with the conditions and made the trip more enjoyable. Take an umbrella, or buy one there!

Great experience for people who like watching wild life. Except for climbing mount Kota Kinabalu and walking Headhunters trail not too much physical effort. Interesting historical monuments, homestay experience.

If you are going to Borneo to see orangutans in the wild you maybe disappointed, even in sanctuaries they are not in an abundance. First part of trip is great for those who want to trek through the the jungle and experience Borneo culture.

Never bored on this trip. Borneo has got it all from mountains to beaches, caves, rivers, jungle and animals in the wild. And really nice people, too.

Don't be afraid of the mosquitoes and leeches, as it is just a precaution to be prepared for them.
