Orang Utan Island: A Week on Borneo

Borneo, Malaysia

I spent a week on the island of Borneo, which is divided into three countries: the southern half belongs to Indonesia, and the northern half belongs to Malaysia, with the exception of a tiny section of rainforest on the far northern tip, which comprises the nation of Brunei.  More on that later.  I stayed in Kuching, which is on the Western side of the Malaysian part of the island.

Travel through Asia can be exhausting, and I was starting to feel burnt out on travel by the time I reached Kuching.  I was looking forward to a lazy week of catching up on work when I met four incredible travelers (we were all traveling separately, staying at the same hostel), and they convinced me to come along with their plans.  We rented a car together, then visited the Semanggoh Orang Utan Sanctuary, the Annah Rais longhouse, and a cave with tons of bats.
