We are thinking of flying into KK end of Sept., having a day or two to explore the city and do activities, and then head to Shangrila Rasa Ria for 5 days on the beach, including visiting the orangutangs. Before we head to the resort, we are interested in wildlife, a slice of culture or roaming some interesting streets and sampling local food. If attractions are conveniently "on the way" we could take them in... such as mosques. Any high recommendations for what would conveniently work for us would be appreciated.
The Tabin Wildlife Reserve sounds pretty neat - would this be recommended with a 2-yr-old who is fairly adventurous. I haven't found out how accommodations work there. And is the wildlife still plentiful at this time of year.
The Green Connection also sounds interesting, but I'm a bit put off by the descriptions of how run down it is.
Thanks for your help... I'll take any advice you can give.
