We encourage you to taste the products they offer you, as this will create a positive atmosphere for your stay. In any case, please try to be as polite as possible towards your hosts, even if your cultures are very different!
Hiking and Sporting Activities
Borneo is home to a lush, virgin flora. During this itinerary, you will spend time in the jungle. Please remember to dress appropriately and bring the necessary equipment. Always make sure you have snacks on you, as you will occasionally be far from everything and will not have the opportunity to buy food.
