With busy hectic life living in Bedok Central can be a pain.. Scuba Diving always best medicine for me to relax my mood swing specially with great companion and nice dive site.

After our survey and stun upon their site www.borneotourstravel.com and bumped into a local Dive Centre located in a gem.. called SEMPORNA, It dive centre name is Borneo Global Sipadan Backpackers & Dive Centre

Cosy and value for money... the best part no need to worry for Sipadan permit. Checked in the Backpackers and booked the Scuba Diving Packages for Sipadan leisure dive with Sipadan permit, thats what we need.

My Dive master was Jeff and Hafiz.. awesome funny diver and pro which make up the entire dive holiday and trip. After our diving.. Our local dive master showed us around semporna town, its alright.. reasonable price for the beer after the hot sun and massive current after our Dive in Sipadan.

Overall thumbs up for Jeff the local boy dive master... keep it up mate and see you sipadan again

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

My review is based on a really bad experience with the bunker. I did not sleep for more than 1 hour. And if you spend a couple of hours with travelling and you need to rest, the bunker is the worst possibility ever... I also saw 3bed room and seemed to be ok. Further - friendly staff, basic bfast - but ok. Next time I would prefer Seafest Hotel nextdoor or Dragon Inn (as recommended by my neighbours from the next resort).
