Travel to Borneo - information, advice and inspiration

With luscious rain forests, endangered wildlife and diverse culture - this destination is perfect for adventure and nature lovers Straddling the equator and dominated by luxuriant rain forests, Borneo is the world’s third-biggest island. Its territory is apportioned unevenly between the countries of Brunei, Indonesia and Malaysia. The two East Malaysian states Sabah and Sarawak, lie in the north, surrounding the rich Islamic Sultanate of Brunei, while the Indonesian state of Kalimantan occupies most of central and southern Borneo. The island boasts remote jungle beauty, tropical adventure and tribal cultures, and is home to half of all known plant and animal species in the world. Wanderlust recommends Wanderlust tips Hawker markets offer opportunities to try a variety of dishes from the numerous stalls ranged around a central eating area; order enticing-looking treats from any stalls, take them to your table and tuck in.

What Borneo taught me about living. 10th November 2014 Our featured blogger, Mike Bonner, returns from Borneo determined to live a life he doesn't need to escape from A Westerly wind blows to take me home.

What Borneo taught me about living

Five airports, four planes, one taxi, one coach and a bus. Reality sinking in with each transfer. Island life left behind. The happiness of children playing in Mabul's shantytown plays in my mind. The flip flops have grown comfortable. APT - EULTSR15, APT Trans-Siberian Tour, Golden Eagle Rail Journey, Moscow to Vladivostok, Great Train Vacations, Russian Holidays. Day 1.

Venezuela Travel Guide

Capital of Venezuela's Andes is Mérida, the region's base for moutaineering and trekking. Far below at the heart of Venezuela are the llanos (plains), an immense area of flat savannah rich in wildlife. With the longest coastline in the Caribbean at over 2500 km, Venezuela has some of the region's best diving in three marine national parks, including Islas Los Roques. Forth and Clyde Canal. The Forth and Clyde Canal is a canal opened in 1790, crossing central Scotland; it provided a route for the seagoing vessels of the day between the Firth of Forth and the Firth of Clyde at the narrowest part of the Scottish Lowlands.

Forth and Clyde Canal

It is 35 miles (56 km) long and it runs from the River Forth near Grangemouth to the River Clyde at Bowling, and had an important basin at Port Dundas in Glasgow. Successful in its day, it suffered as the seagoing vessels were built larger and could no longer pass through. London to Venice 2015 timetable, prices & tickets.

Tsars-Gold-compartment-categories.pdf. Trans Siberian Railway. Perugia Holiday Villa: Perugia townhouse, roomy150sqm citycentre. Best Perugia rental We stayed at Dimora La Sapienza from Sept 1st to Oct 11, 2010 and found it to be excellent with regards accommodation - lots of room and a great location. It was very clean and well maintained. We bought fresh croissants for our morning breakfast to eat with fresh fruit we had bought at the market the day before.

For dinner we bought fresh pasta from Cristiano di Pecetti's store just around the corner at #3 Via C. Caporali - the best fresh pasta we found in Umbria. The kitchen worked well with lots of pots, pans, dishes and utensils. The location is quiet yet only a short 2 min walk to the main square where we bought some of the best deserts at Sandri's. The owners were very helpful and provided a welcoming basket of goodies plus there is a good library of useful books and maps on the town and area. We found eating out expensive in Italy and since we enjoy cooking and like shopping in local markets for fresh fruit and vegetables this property had it all.
