Like some similar posts my question is about safety. My partner and I are going to Sumatra and Borneo in Jan and Feb 2014 and I have been reading about the heightened warning on the coast of Sabah by Australian Smart traveller. We were planning on going to Sandakan, Kinabatangan River and Turtle Island. I am mostly concerned about turtle island, I had heard that it was very close to the Philippines. Should we just give it a miss and spend some more time somewhere else? Or does anyone know anywhere else to see turtles in Sumatra, Or Malaysia?
Thanks in advance :)
