Selingan Turtle Island Escape

David had said that the only thing he really wanted to do on this trip was to visit the Turtle Islands and he sent me a link.  None of my friends that I asked had heard of it and considering that this would make a fantastic weekend getaway from Singapore, that is unfortunate.

I booked a 2-day/ 1-night tour with Amazing Borneo Tours.  We were picked up at the Nak Hotel at 9 a.m. after we had eaten a nice breakfast.  We were transferred to the “Sandakan seafront jetty” for a speedboat trip across 40 km of the Sulu Sea.  It reminded me of a similar trip from Phuket to the Phi Phi Islands in Thailand.

 

The brochure and reviews made the accommodation on the island sound primitive but with air conditioning and hot showers, I would have described it as moderate rather than basic.
