Thats not good! You win a prize which means you have to spend £££!
:oops: not sure if this will help anyone deciding to enter competition or not but hell, this is going nearly 10 years back ––
i have been to that particular orang utan sanctuary, yes there is space to romp around and you get quite close to the o.a. (not caged).

visiting the Iban longhouses was kinda strange, like visiting an enclosure and tourists taking photos of villagers - my first thought was we were invading their space.

Bako national park - you might catch a glimpse of these proboscis monkeys (huge floppy noses).

the eco-tourism is great, especially if you like white water rafting (to avoid during rainy season) and nature trails (humidity about 80%) and dipping into 'safe' waterfalls etc.

i seem to remember climbing into a small-ish cave where you had to feel around in the absolute dark as your guide talks you through it (guano came to mind but it was just a minion and relatively 'clean' cave really) ... but i hear if you get to the Mulu caves you might catch the big cloud formation of 1.8 million bats at dusk! The Deer Cave which is there, is said to able to hold 5 x St Pauls cathedral (90 x 90 x 2 km long).

there is also another huge cave 'Sarawak Chamber' in the Gua Niah national park which looks like it can fit say 10 x 747s. apparently the world's largest cave at approx 210,000 sq metres (2,260,000 sq feet), the ceiling is > 70 m (230 ft) up about 20+ storeys up! You can only get to it with sheer physical effort and mental endurance - think of crawling on your belly in the dark, the cave lies deep inside a mountain!

Clearwater Cave is the longest cave in south east asia.

i guess that would be a good reason for a family who would appreciate these nature wonders! (not mine and not this time) :w00t:
Thanks, for this - shame flights not included though, sure they could have stretched to that!

yeah agreed, they could even offer 50% off flights – cheapest flights i got for may last year was £305 (incl. taxes) for adult tix. defeats the purpose of a competition prize though ...
