    We travelled from Ireland recently and didn't require or get it. But as always you should check with your own travel vaccine advisor

    Hello, We are staying at Gaya Island Resort in August/September and are planning a trip to Sandakan. To get our flights on time we will need to get a speedboat at approx 6am from Gaya to KK and a speedboat back at 9pm. I understand we'll have to pay 500 MYR for the 6am trip and 140MYR for the return trip (I think these prices are extortionate!!). Do I need to prebook these transfers or can I book them when I get to the hotel (i'm struggling to get in touch with the hotel). Thanks Iona
