Another early start. Boat ride and landing on the beach to do some trekking in Bako National Park to hopefully see more monkeys including the proboscis monkey, which is indigenous to Borneo, and other wildlife. If the OUs were awesome yesterday this was doubly awesome and probably the best day of the trip so far, unbelievable! Trekking in the rain forest at 30+ degrees C was challenging but so rewarding, seeing so much wild life in the natural environment – wild pigs, a venomous viper snake, a flying lemur and some close encounters with proboscis, silver leaf and macaque monkeys, what a day. The quick dip in the South China Sea was a well needed break before heading back and a well earned Tiger beer! Our time in Borneo was coming to an end but with a contented feel. It was with apprehension we were moving on to Thailand tomorrow, the day of the elections!
