        The night before we asked Osman if we could leave really early for the morning boat trip, he said it wasn't a problem so we were all set for a 6am cruise. At about 540am, there was a knock on our door. Initially I thought...More

        With a group of 4 persons we are planning a trip of 2 days from Sandakan to Sukau. We would like to travel by boat to and from Sukau and stay one night in Sukau. Does Osman's Homestay facilitate such a boat trip? If yes can you inform me about times en costs, if not, does anybody know an organization who does offer such a trip against a reasonable price? Thanks in advance!
