DAY 5 & 6

Cosmopolitan (UK) - - Play -

Check back into Shangri-La Tan­jung Aru. Yes, it’s con­fus­ing to keep switch­ing around, but this one is nearer the Tunku Ab­dul Rah­man Na­tional Park, a col­lec­tion of five is­lands that host pri­vate re­sorts, dive schools and, most im­por­tantly, an is­land-to-is­land zip wire that’s pretty much the best le­gal high we’ve found yet. If you want an­other hit of wildlife, one of the is­lands, Gaya, has a ma­rine cen­tre and tur­tle re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion area (on its own stretch of pri­vate beach… with a bang­ing Malaysian restau­rant next door… should you need con­vinc­ing). If that all sounds like too much, get a Ba­li­nese mas­sage at the Gaya Is­land Re­sort spa, and then take a speed­boat shut­tle back to your ho­tel to watch the sun set.
