Sabah Day 1: Tawau to Lahad Datu

We flown in an early flight to Tawau. After getting the rental cars (we got one 4WD and a Proton Wira..badly needed for service). The views from Tawau to Lahad Datu are mostly plantations. If you ever wonder what happened to all the plantations that Subang used to have, they all moved here! Most of the big plantation companies are here..
This is where we are going..but we had to get to Lahad Datu to register at the site office first. Lahad Datu at lunch time is a jam's out time.

A common sight in Danum Valley. The roads that we travelled to DVFC are mostly gravel roads. Imagine 4 hours of bumpy ride. It would be easier if we get the DVFC transport but unfortunately, we travelled on the days that don't have the transport in and out of DVFC. It would more expensive to try and get one at these times as they would charge you for an 'empty ride' out of DVFC.

Another 10km more. This is where the road branches out to DVFC and Borneo Rainforest Lodge (BRL), the 5-star accomodation popular with Europeans and Japanese.
