This is an adventure into a real tropical rainforest that many nature lovers and travelers will look forward to. This journey is trending up when it comes to family vacations. Make memories with a quintessential Malaysian Borneo journey playing with orangutans and observing sun bears at wildlife sanctuaries. Awe at pygmy elephants, big nose proboscis monkeys, exotic tropical flowers, beautiful butterflies and witness a variety of birds on your treks and river cruises. A great feature of this trip is, our adventures don’t just stop at sunset. With after-dark excursions we will switch it up and see the nocturnal animals as they awake from their sleep and begin their night activities.
There is no “roughing it” on this tour. Rest and recharge every night at comfy eco-friendly resorts. Then last but not least, spend a day swimming, snorkeling, or just relaxing on the islands off the South China Sea. This is a great family adventure for the young and old with plenty for the whole family to partake in.
