Semporna is on the east coast of Borneo Malaysia and a jumping-off point for some of the best diving in the world. Ranah, Franki, and I dived at Malbul which is famous for macro life. We decided to book our diving with Scuba Junkies – the same company that we got our PADI Certifications from in KK – because they are professional, reputable, and well-priced.

Unfortunately, I could only participate in one of three dives because my ears were having trouble equalizing. As a result, I did both diving and snorkeling and saw a plethora of sea life including three turtles, stingrays, a crocodile fish, a moray eel, and amazing coral!

The town of Semporna itself, is not the nicest of places to visit. There is garbage everywhere and it seems slightly rougher than other parts of Malaysia. However, it did have an amazing roti restaurant right by our hostel (Borneo Global Backpackers) which we went to two nights in a row!
