Borneo Itinerary Planning Help...


We are a small family of 3 (our Daughter will be 7 when we travel), looking for some help in planning a trip to Borneo next August.

I have looked at staying at the Rasa Ria (5 nights R&R) or possibly the sister Hotel near KK, however, I would also like to include trips to Sandakan (3n SS) & Danum Valley (3n Rainforest).

We are travelling from MAN (UK) to KL and will probably stay in a KL hotel for 2 days to acclimatise amd get over the jet lag, before flying on to KK.

We are looking at 14 nights in total, does the above seem plausible in the time, and more importanly, suitable with a 7 year old? Also in what order is the most simplistic way to achieve the intinerary? Finally, whilst the Rasa Ria and KL trips are easily managed by any number of tour operators, does anyone have any suggestions for the other parts of the trip?

Many thanks,

Try downbelow if you intend using a tour agency for your booking for the rest of the trip. I find their service to be excellent.
