Boneo.....for a break

Post by Zeenit » Wed, 10 Dec 2008 10:34 am

Hi people, it that time of year where all our friends and family come and see us. My husband has a friend that would like to visit Boneo while he is here with us. He has sent me this link //www.asianoverland.com.my/package_borneo
and would like to know if anyone had been to Boneo and would this package be ideal or is there something else that is better suited for a single male , mid 40ish.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Boneo, for a single middle aged man? Seems okay... but Geylang is closer.

I've never been to Borneo so cannot help there..

I've spend a bit of time there throughout the '80 & early '90's. It a big Island with 3 countries represented so there is quite a bit of variation. There's Brunei, Indonesian Kalimantan and Malaysia's Sabah & Sarawak and the Malaysian Federal Territory of Labuan (but that another small island). Mt. Kinnabalu, Mulu caves and the rain forests are nice provided he the adventurous type and in reasonable shape (any shape except round). The Camel Trophy Challenge has been run there as well.

I couldn't get your link to come up. SMS hit the main tourist spots. As long as your friend is an outdoor person, he'll find plenty to do. FYI: it's Borneo, not Boneo. :o
