Expert Tips

Christie

Destination Executive

“Visiting the bustling Sandakan Central Market provides a contrasting change of scenery to Borneo’s rainforest experiences. There’s a variety of food stalls serving Malay, Chinese and Indonesian food. Sample kolok mee (egg noodles in dark soy sauce, with garlic, pork and barbecued beef), and salted terubok fish and bird’s nest soup, which is a delicacy in Sarawak.”

“You’ll want to get your camera exposure settings right when you visit the Gomantong caves.  Rays of light burst through the cracks and openings of this intricate network, illuminating unique rock formations and limestone stalactites.”
