  Malaysia: Peninsula and Borneo - July 2006

The plane lands in Sandakan. Here I am in Borneo! The airport is tiny. I quickly get my bag, buy a coupon at the taxi counter at the exit and go directly to Sepiloka few kilometers away, where the Orangutan Rehabilitation Center is located.

I plan to spend only one night at Jungle Resort, spotted on the internet, close to the center.

I do well. As much the garden in the middle of which is said resort is splendid, with wooden footbridges, very cute pond and luxuriant tropical vegetation maintained with care, as much my room with 50RM is basic basic basics ... The contrast is violent, when one disembarks luxurious Peruti Pacific, It's certain !

No problem, I came for the monkeys. It is 11am. It gives me time to rest a little and to have lunch quietly before the meal time of the orangutans, at 15h.
