    My fiance and I are currently three months into our SE Asia trip and recently arrived in Malaysia. We are both 30, pretty ok with living to budget (working on about RM170 per day) and enjoy anything involving animals, views and food. Our next stop is to be Borneo in two or three weeks time (mid to end November).
    We're trying to fit in various Borneo highlights after our tour of the peninsula bit of Malaysia but it's pretty huge and we're not sure what can and can't be missed. Current shortlist is:

    * Sarawak
    - Kuching and Bako National Park
    - Miri and Niah National Park
    - Gunung Mulu (but it looks very difficult to get to)
    * Sabah
    - Kota Kinabalu, National Park and Tunku Abdul Rahman Islands
    - Sandakan and Sepilok
    - Sungai Kinabatangan
    - SCUBA diving in Semporna

    After 7 weeks in Indonesia we're a bit tight on time so have considered just missing out Sarawak entirely as it looks more difficult and time consuming (however it does sound amazing). Would this be a terrible mistake? Broadly we're trying to fit all of the above into two weeks without spending a fortune on flight hops across from place to place.

    Any thoughts or comments are appreciated.
