Bed & Breakfasts, Guesthouses, and Dorms by WILDBORNEO.net (4/29/2002). Some of my more memorable discoveries during my travels have been good "budget" accommodation. I share my personal view of the so-called- "budget" accomodations in Malaysia. » More

Travel Tips

Choosing a GPS by Joe Adnan (9/5/2002). There are a few pages on the web that deal with selection of GPS receivers, but none dealing specifically with selecting a GPS receiver for use while mountain biking. Geographic location also has an effect on choice: uploadable topographic maps of Malaysia are unlikely to be available soon, and so mapping capabilities of the more expensive GPS receivers are largely redundant. Here is a list of criteria that I think you should consider. » More

Travel Tips

Seasons in Malaysia by WILDBORNEO.net (4/29/2002). Most of Malaysia (Peninsular & Borneo) lies between the equator and the northern 7° latitude. So for the most part, we experience a predominantly equatorial climate (i.e., it's hot and humid for most of the year). However, we do experience some seasonality, although to the visiting traveller, this may not be too obvious. The seasonality in Malaysia is important to consider because this has a bearing on whether you enjoy your trip to Malaysia or not, especially so if you want to get outdoors to watch wildlife and explore our forests! » More

Travel Tips

Staying outdoors by WILDBORNEO.net (4/29/2002). The jungle is a formidable environment for those that are not prepared. My simple advice is to always be careful and conservative in the forest´┐Żbefore you enter the forest, always make sure you have enough water/snacks, a basic first-aid kit, a knife, and pay attention to the features and characteristics of the trail. Where possible, always use a local guide. It will be your only insurance out of the forest if anything should go wrong. We give you an insight into how we look after ourselves in the forest. » More
