When I first planned out my Borneo trip itinerary, I was a bit conflicted about the places that I wanted to visit. Since Borneo is known as the Emerald of the Equator, I knew that I wanted to focus on enjoying nature on the trip.
When I consulted with Suzie about my trip to Brunei, she recommended Ulu Temburong for the nature part. She even sent me the link of some Korean TV show about traveling to Brunei. According to her, I could follow their itinerary with Ulu Temburong included.
Unfortunately, when I checked the price of the tour package to Temburong, it was freaking expensive! Like, to join a 2D1N tour in Temburong, it costs almost $200 and I simply couldn’t afford it. 🙁
So, as an alternative, I tried to find some nature destinations in Malaysian part of Borneo. I’ve got several options in the firsthand, with Gunung Mulu, Niah Caves and Bako to choose. Long story short, I decided to choose to go to Bako National Park instead.
