4Days 3Nights Ba Kelalan & Merarap Hotspring ~ Ba Kelalan Highlands , Sabah Borneo
For the rest of us, flying is the best option. The 16 seater twin otter planes are fantastic! On normal days, when passengers are few, the plane will be laden with goods such as cooking oil, some electronic goods sent by family members living down in Miri, rice, tinned foods, home appliances, sacks of sugar and lots more.
