Whilst in Sandakan, we booked on a 2-day, 1-night jungle safari down the River Kinabatangen to see some more of the Borneo jungle. It was a 2-hour transfer from Sandakan to a village just outside Sukau. What struck me most on the journey was the miles and miles of palm tree plantations that we passed. This made me quite sad and even angry, as I had read about how they are chopping down the rainforests of Borneo to make way for these palm tree plantations for money making purposes (palm tree oil is a lucrative business apparently).
