I will be flying into Sandakan on Airasia from JB in October, for 2 nights. Have provisionally booked one night at Sepilok Jungle Resort, as well as a Kinabantang river trip with one night in Bilit Camp. Planning to spend one morning at Sepilok Orang Utang sanctuary. Any other must see or do's in and around Sandakan ? How best to get from Sandakan airport to Sep Jungle Resort? Thanks for any advice
Frankly, I think you are already trying to cram in too much for 2 nights. I would recommend spending more time in the Kinabatangan river, especially if you want to see some wildlife. There are the Gomatong Caves and Turtle Island of interest in the region, and the city itself, but unless you spend more time there, they are impossible to fit in your schedule.
