A good friend of mine spoke me into doing a series of Top 10 articles on South East Asia. I’ve been fortunate to go to almost all of the countries in the region now, so maybe a series of articles like this could be useful to someone out there. The first article will be on my Top 10 Islands in the region.
My original plan was to only spend 3 or 4 weeks in Malaysia, but it’s so easy to love the country. It was actually difficult not to be tempted and extend my stay for a few more weeks. Here is my 5 week itinerary – maybe it will come in helpful if you’re planning a trip there.
It’s been a dream of mine to travel through Borneo, and I am finally ticking this off my bucket list. My first proper stop was the small island of Mabul, located in the Celebes sea. There’s no doubt the waters in these parts are stunning, but for how much longer?
I’m the first to admit that I tend to be a little critical when it comes to what defines the perfect tropical island. I’ve been to some which have just disappointed me beyond measure, and I’ve come across others I thought would be impossible to beat. Here I am writing this from the Perhentians, and I just don’t think it’s possible to top this.
