    What are your plans exactly? You want help 'fitting everything in' but don't say what it is your are trying to fit in, aside from Borneo.

    What areas of Malaysia are you aiming for? Heading for the cities to do some shopping or to the islands for snorkelling?

    Thanks for the replies. We are flying into Singapore! We'd mostly be looking to see the major sites. We won't be doing too much shopping. Sightseeing and culture would be the main objectives

    If sightseeing and culture are your main objectives, I guess Sabah is a good place. Here, you can expect to see the indigenous people (who used to plant cocoa during the olden days). You might want to arrange for a stay in a longhouse (that accommodates the ENTIRE village!) and live with the Rungus people. Apart from that, you may visit a Gong factory nearby.

    In Sandakan, you may see the Puu Jii Shih temple, situated on top of a mountain, where you can have a view of the entire Sandakan town. A visit to the islands is a must in Sandakan! Visit Lankayan Island, a very tiny island that offers snorkelling and kayaking facilities.

    Contact me at siahbk92@gmail.com, I am a local in Sandakan and I don't mind to provide transportation services if I'm at home during my semester breaks!

    :) Have a great day!
