Hi, I have two big concerns about my forthcoming visit to Borneo.
I have booked myself onto a boat headed to Palau Gaya for some light trekking and beach relaxtion. Then I heard that there is a high alert for this island and there is a risk of priacy and terrorism. However, of course, the tour company says there is no risk. Should I take this with a pinch of salt?
Secondly, I'll be staying in Bilit for 2 full days and 2 nights. Kinabatangan has an ependimicity up at around 16%. Is it therefore foolish to visit, even if I do get anti-malarials? Would i be 100% protected with malarone? I'm thinking is it worth it for 2 days in the forest?
Any advice on these matters?
