Koh Phangan - Singapore - Malaysia - Borneo

From Northern Thailand we headed south via two overnight trains spending the day in Bangkok (again) on the way. From Surat Thani we took a ferry to the infamous island of Koh Phangan.


Leela Beach - (Where we stayed)

Koh Mah- Great for snorkelling!

We spent a laid back eight days (!) here sunbathing, snorkelling and spending time with sis, new buddies and even a bit of djing for Jim! Thailand is introduced to dubstep ;-). We would love to return here someday!

From there we headed to Phuket to catch our flight to Singapore to stay with Vic and Rich for a few days. It was nice to be spoilt and stay in a real house for a while!

A singapore sling at Raffles (it's got to be done!)

There's always time for a curry

From Singapore we headed to Kuala Lumpur to catch our flight to Borneo(!!!)

Patrick at Sepilok Orang utan rehabilitation Centre

Kinabatangan river safari

Proboscis Monkey - The head of the pack!

Danum Valley Rainforest Reserve

Asian elephants in the undergrowth!!


To be amongst the rainforest and the wildlife here was mindblowing.

From Borneo we flew back to mainland Malaysia to stay with Hannahs friend Jo for the weekend and that is where we write this! We plan to head North to the Perhentian Islands tomorrow.

Hello you 2!
Seems like you had a great time in Borneo, we can't wait to go and it looks like we're doing very similar stuff! I can't believe you got a Singapore sling in Raffles, we want to do that but isn't it $20 for 1? madness
Hope you have a great time in the Perhentians. By the way, you make us sick with your jamminess with staying with people in actual houses!!
love kate

Hi you two....These pictures are really great,I don't know what moved me most the curry or the rainforest and I've been moved by a few curries!!
The rain forest does look wonderful and it is quite something to sip a Singapore sling in Raffles hotel. Don't take any notice of your green eyed sister and enjoy those soft beds and clean(hopefully) sheets Stay safe and enjoy yourselves.
Love Popbone and Trish.

Yes excellent pictures you lucky swines! I noticed an uncanny resemblance between Jim and the proboscis monkey. Hope you are having a fantastic time, by the looks of the pictures you are! The rainforest looks wicked. Bet it's hotter there than it is here right now, it's cold and boring but at least we've seen the sun.

Would rather be where you are
love Alex & Sarah xxx
