Yeah,l I didn't predict it for two reasons- A) the preview made it sound like Reichen and Chip were thinking of a way other than flying, and you couldn't take a boat to Malaysia and think it would be quicker than a plane, but we were misled there. and B) they stopped quickly in Kuala Lumpur last season.
But I'm very glad they went! Kota Kinabalu was GORGEOUS! I kept exclaiming how beautiful the scenery was throughout the show! And they're in BORNEO! How cool is that?
I think they'll probably stay in Borneo next leg, travel through the jungle and interior- maybe to another country on the island, like Brunei or Indonesia.
