    It was a short walk to see the sun bears, orangutans, and monkeys. There were other sanctuaries nearby like the proboscis monkeys. The property had tours. I loved that I felt like I was staying in a jungle. We watch birds like the kingfishers...

    I almost didn’t stay here due to some negative reviews but I had an enjoyable one night stay. I upgraded to a deluxe room after reading the reviews and was happy I did (approx $60 USD). The room had AC, was clean and had a nice balcony. Nothing...
