Went with a local group from kampung mengares just a short hop from sandakan search mescot on google for their details. It's a small group of locals that wanted a means of making money that didn't require them to cut down their forest, so far they have built an Eco-lodge and provide river tours and tricks as well as a home stay, it's berry worthwhile and can provide a huge insight into Bornean culture of the past and present about 8 years ago

Kos in Greece seems to be pretty cheap at the moment head over to Tingaki for good beaches and some nice quiet bars about 8 years ago
