Since I was a little girl I have been fascinated by the jungle. To me it is a magical place where everything is connected and you kind find little wonders everywhere. So for me the for over 100 million years untouched rain forest in Danum Valley is a must-visit place in Borneo. After reading about the price for trips to Danum Valley I was so sad, because it is ridiculous expensive. But we found a way to do Danum Valley on a Budget.
After one night in Semporna Scuba Junkie arranged our boat trip to Mabul. The island of Mabul is a 45-60 min speed boat ride away from Semporna and it is the base camp of the dive shops that specialize in Sipadan. Mabul is known for its muck diving and there are indeed plenty of colourful nudibranches and elegant pipefishes in the water.
