Malaysia Borneo 2 Days 1 Night with Kinabatangan River

Kinabatangan river is Sabah longest river that flows 560km.

Kinabatangan River, the longest river of Borneo. The main reason for tourist to Bilit is to go cruising Kinabatangan river to watch wildlife. From Sandakan city, it is 2.5 hours drive to reach the Bilit.

You can for instance go for a walk in the area or maybe sit back and relax with a book on the porch. Late afternoon you'll sail off in search of wild animals. If you look up high and the trees, you'll see the monkeys looking down on you as they scurry about. Once the sun begins to set you'll sail back to the lodge for dinner.

Awakened by screeching gibbon monkeys and the typical sounds made by hornbills. Early in the morning, you'll continue your holiday as you sail towards nearby lakes where the animals on the shores will slowly come to life.
