Jack, Southeast Asia Specialist
After graduating with a degree in History, Jack took a year out, to combine travel and work in Thailand, Indochina, Malaysia, Singapore, Bali, Australia, New Zealand and Fiji. After returning to the UK, Jack interspersed working in recruitment and sales and marketing with numerous extended visits to Indochina and Thailand. His enthusiasm for the region led him to Audley in 2006 to share his passion, knowledge and experience of Southeast Asia with our clients.

After a chat with Jack about my interests and available options, he organized a fabulous agenda leading to another great experience, this time in Borneo.
After being very pleased with the 20 day trip planned with Donna to Madagascar last year, I returned to them to plan a three week trip to Borneo in November 2015. After a chat with Jack about my interests and available options, he organized a fabulous agenda leading to another great experience. On return, I learned that I had to take the week between Christmas and New Year's day off, so I went back to Audley and within a week working with Claire, I had confirmation on an exciting six day trip to Nicaragua - that's service!
I'll never forget when…
Bako National Park covers 2,742 hectares of a rugged sand stone peninsula to the east of the Bako River near Kuching, the capital of Sarawak. Millions of years of erosion have created an impressive and breathtaking coastline of steep cliffs, rocky headlands and stretches of white, sandy bays. Wave erosion at the base of the cliffs has carved many of the rocks into fantastically shaped sea arches and seastacks.
The coastline is also dotted by a sandstone cliff vegetation characteristic of Bako. Other major vegetation types include the mangrove forest, mixed dipterocarp forest, peat swamp forest, kerangas (heath) forest, and kerangas scrub on the plateau; it's possible to see just about every type of vegetation found on Borneo at Bako National Park.
Well worth a visit even to experience the novel way to enter the park- from the sea.
