I revised my Malaysia itinerary for July 2006. It is necessary to make choices... Here is a new map of the route I plan.
From Thailand to Borneo
I eliminate Cherating, Malacca or the park Taman Negara…
I will arrive by Thailand, where I plan to spend a few days in Koh Tao. I'll go down south by train, from Chumphon to Songai Kolok on the border with Malaysia.
I then plan to follow the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia to the south, then join Borneo. My ultimate goal: the island of Sipadan.
For Peninsular Malaysia, I will settle for the islands on the east coast: the Perhentian and Redangthen Tioman. With road trip by bus, because there is no rail link on this side.
Then take off Johor Bahru, the border city in front of Singapore, for Borneo. I finally chose to land directly at Sandakan, near the orangutan rehabilitation center of SepilokWe will have a little "junglesque" stopover between two island stops.
Then go on Semporna and Sipadan…
It looks like a very nice program!
