There are two: seeing a grown male orang utan in the wild, and watching the sun rise from the summit of Mount Kinabalu

Bring a head torch and lots of insect repellant. Plus an alarm clock!

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

See the orangutans , the river crusies wildlife spotting, reaching the top of the mountain.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Pack really warm clothes for the mountain (thermal underwear is a must), make sure you've done some hill walking before you go, be prepared for really basic accomodation, take a sleeping sheet with you.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

yes

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

The first week wasn't really a vacation it was just a hard slog. The 2nd week was great though and the guide Manuel was amazing, he made the vacation as fantastic as it was.
