No better chill out possible, except that it's hardly chilly. Gunulan F&B manager takes extra care to ensure entire stay is most comfortable and entertaining.

It is very interesting to see the plant variety and the lizards, butterflies and stick bugs. Redid see one orchid blooming as well. The canopy walk was fun as well.

Firstly, Gunung Mulu National Park is well worth the aeroplane flight it takes to reach it, and travellers can still do it on a budget if they take into account the following: The airport is about a fifteen-minute walk to the National Park HQ, so there's no need to pay for a taxi.The Marriott Hotel or the park headquarters themselves...

We spent 3 days at Mulu. Did a guided tour to the Deer Cave, which was very impressive. The Canopy Walk was good as well. You can follow some trails on your own. The tree top Tower was nice, the waterfall a bit disappointing. There are some more trails and tours offered. A beautyful place and worth to go there.

Just thought I'd add a few tips for anyone thinking or planning a trip here, we didn't find all that much online before going and nearly got stuck a few times! 1st, BRING CASH, there is not a single ATM in the whole area, actually not one, the nearest would be a boat trip several hours away. Bring absolutely all... More

Visited Mulu National Park (27 Aug- 31 Aug) almost to a year since the last trip. Enjoyed the experience (again:-) ). However if you're planning to hike the Headhunters Trail to exit the park & leave via Limbang,be prepared to take more than 3 litres of water & because of the dry season the water level will be low so...

They use local guides who are knowledgeable and take care of you. we saw 4 show caves with their unique differences - one is largest cave area in SE Asia, one with an underground river, one with bats that do a bat...

This place is truely amazing! The nature is breathtaking beautiful and overwhelming and the park is well organized with a variety of guided tours from easy to wildly challenging. Guides are good but not all as talkative as you could want. Maybe it's the culture or maybe it is not obvious to locals how different it is for a viking... More

First things first: an ATR-72 took us from Miri to Mulu National Park, deep in the heart of Sarawak. Flying is the only viable option to get here and looking out the plane window I can easily understand why. The Borneo rain forest has an estimated age of 130 million years, making it the oldest rain forest in the world.... More

There are some very unique things to see here, the most well-known ones being caves and bats. But my favorite part was actually the insects... We went on a guided night walk, and the guide pointed out so many enormous insects that I never would have noticed on my own. And the insect sounds at night are incredibly beautiful, like... More
