Singapore and Borneo Multi Centre

Singapore is known as one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. This glistening city offers ultra-modern streets, colonial monuments and not too far outside of the city centre via cable car is Sentosa Island, home to Universal Studios, golf courses, theme parks and beaches. Continue your journey with a Malaysian adventure and a short flight to Borneo. Relax and enjoy the 5-star facilities of the Shangri-La’s Rasa Ria Resort, set on a stunning long stretch of beach the hotel has many facilities on site, or a fantastic add on to your trip is a 3 day escorted tour of neighbouring Sandakan. Borneo's lush rainforests are home to some of the most varied wildlife on the planet, but none of them capture the imagination like those 'wild men of Borneo', the flame-haired orangutans. We love seeing them at the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre in Sandakan, swinging through the trees and enjoying feeding time. With fewer than 15,000 left in the wild, this is your chance to see these great apes in their natural habitat.
