I revised my itinerary in Malaysia for July 2006. We have to make choices ... Here is a new map of the trip I'm planning.
From Thailand to Borneo
I eliminate Cherating, Malacca or the park Taman Negara…
I will arrive by Thailand, where I intend to spend a few days in Koh Tao. I'll go down south by train, from Chumphon until Songai Kolok on the border with Malaysia.
I then plan along the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia to the south, then join Borneo. My ultimate goal: the island of Sipadan.
For Peninsular Malaysia, I will be content with the islands of the East Coast: Perhentian and Redangthen Tioman. With bus ride, because there is no rail link on that 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 Sepilok, history to have a small step more "junglesque" between two island stops.
