Hi All,

Does anyone have any ideas of a good place to stay for new years in Sandakan? Also we plan to visit the orang-utan and proboscis monkey sanctuaries, turtle islands and caves etc around that time. Would it be cheaper to book an all in one tour or to book the separate parts individually?

Any ideas very much appreciated.

You have to do the 3D 2N Jungle Camp at Uncle Tan! It's about 45 minutes to 1 hour from Sandakan.

It might be nicer to stay out at Sepilok over New year cos then you will be with other travellers, whereas Sandakan town might not have much atmosphere. I don't really know about tour costs, I know some have packages that cover all the sites you mention. But its easy to go to Sepilok on your own using public transport. And Turtle Islands is an overnight trip, you can easily arrange it yourself although you do need to book ahead.
