Time flies when you are having fun! 2015 was for us a year full of highlights and traveling. It is the year where we travelled for the first time together, the year where we started with this travel blog and the year where we lived together in Malaysia, traveled in Malaysia, traveled in Cambodia, Traveled in Sumatra, met each other families in Europe and moved together to Australia. Here a list with the 15 top places we have visit in 2015! (not in particular order)
Not the chance to spent days in the jungle to try to find the wild orang utans? This is your best chance to see them in their natural habitat, go visit the Semenggoh Rehabilitation Center near Kuching, Borneo. In this centre, 27 Orang Utans roam free in an area of 450 Hectares.
In my opinion, Bako National Park is one of the most beautiful national parks I have ever seen. It is easy to reach from Kuching and because of the small size (it is one of the smallest national parks in Borneo) you get to see a lot of wildlife. You can either go for a day trip to the park or stay a night in the basic chalets.
Sipadan, a tiny island on the east coast of Borneo is rated as one of the best dive spots in the world. We were there to see it with our own eyes and yes, diving at Sipadan is incredibly beautiful! Read in this post about the dive sites, where to stay and how to get to these incredible dive spots.
Kuching, the capital of Sarawak, the biggest state in Malaysian Borneo, is a perfect base to explore the relativly nearby national parks. Besides that, Kuching is for most of the travellers the starting point of their Borneo adventure as Air Asia, Malaysia Airlines and Malindo Air have frequent flights to Kuching.
