Hi We are travelling to Sandakan in a few days. We are staying at Sepilok Jungle resort in order to see the orangutans (www.sepilokjungleresort.com) and Johnny who runs it has been really helpful. He can organise any tour you want and if you look on the website there are a few examples. Tours to Turtle Island are easy to arrange as they are popular. A friend has also recommended a visit to Gomantong Caves to see the bats and a river safari. Sepilok resort offers a few day package which covers most of these. In Sandakan there isn't a lot of choice for accommodation so we booked Hotel Sandakan as it was the cheapest. Hope this helps.
