Hi everyone!!!

Am heading to Sabah at the beginning of Oct for a week or so and then on to Bali to head to the Gilli's + Lombok for 3 wks.

I am flying into Kota Kinabalu and from there getting a flight to Sandakan as I want to see the Orang Utan Sanctuary at Sepilok (would 2 days be enough there?) and travel around a bit.

I would also like to see some jungle and do a long boat tour - can anyone recommend a tour company or any specifics of where I would be best to start this tour from? (obv will research this just putting thought I'd ask some questions first!!!) :)

Just wanted to know time wise - if any of you have recommendations - how long would you recommend me staying in this area? Will a week or so be enough?!

And most importantly - anyone got any must see places/must do things? Is KK worthwhile staying a couple of nts in?

Thanks all!!!
