Bario - The Isolated Hidden Paradise Feb 01, 2011
Went there Oct 2010 and stayed in De Platue Lodge.The first thing that i noticed as soon as we landed at Bario airport is the climate,breezy and refreshing totally the opposite of the city where we live in.The people are very friendly and helpful,even the little kids will say hello and greet you.lovely and gentle people,still conserving their tradition and culture.De Platue Lodge is situated at an isolated area,about 3-5km to the shop area.its a double storey wooden house with gardens around it.The view is splendid,jungle all around and delicious local/jungle food.I found it to be extremely quiet around Bario,as if everyone is can hear the birds in the sky and the sound of insects.There alot of things-to-do in Bario,mainly jungle-trekking to some longhouses in the area.I just went there to relax and unwind,so i did not do much of activity except wandering around and meet people.It's a perfect place to get away from stressful live.If you want to see the original of Borneo,this is the best place to go to.highly recommended by me :)
