HINT: If you want your photo to appear next to your Question or Answer then simply head over to http://en.gravatar.com/ and you'll be able to upload a picture of yourself or you & your children for example and all of a sudden you'll start seeing yourself all over the internet. Lots of blogs use Gravatars to display pictures next to comments. The added benefit is that when people can see who you are they are more likely to connect and answer your question than if they just see the blue gravatar logo.

Mulu National Park (geographic marvels) and Danum Valley (Orangutans in their natural habitat), hands down. Though, we haven't been to Indonesian Borneo, so I'm only speaking to Malaysian Borneo. You can check out the "Malaysia" section under Places on my site (http://safariroo.com) for more on our experience, with our two and four year old, in Mulu (and Kota Kinabalu - which you could skip if you're not flying through - if you are flying into KK, however, it's definitely worth a few days). Though we managed (and enjoyed ourselves) with our young children, Mulu will be AMAZING with your slightly older kids! Happy Journeying, Lauren

Hi, Would love to do the same with my children one day! If you'd like to take a few days trekking with camping out, I'm unsure where you could do it. For easier types of treks though, my highlights would would be to visit Tanjung Puting in Central Kalimantan to see orangutans and other wildlife (where we, along with others, offer tours by boat); Kinabatang River in Sabah for day treks in the area; Danum Valley in Sabah for amazing rainforest and wildlife; Bako National Park in Sarawak for beautiful scenery and day treks to see hidden waterfalls and watch proboscis monkeys; Mulu National Park in Sarawak for visiting the amazing caves and again, beautiful scenery. In some of these places you may be able to arrange a few days of trekking and camping. All the best, Hannah
