Is the Taman Negara significantly different than the treks in Malaysian Borneo? ...

Hello, since TF is still finalising their guides for Malaysia, I wanted to link to my blog post on the Perhentian Islands.

Full trip report here: http://legalnomads.blogspot.com/2009/11/perhentian-islands-malaysias-perfect.html Hope it's helpful! Jodi ...
