    Hi everyone, Just thought I'd highlight a company doing tours around the region to see Nepenthes in the wild.
    The tour guide is Charles Clarke who wrote all those fantastic books about nepenthes in Peninsular Malaysia/Sabah/Sarawak etc. accompanied by CP enthusiast Troy Davis (whom I believe goes under the name Troy/Fatboy in these forums).
    I saw the topic in another thread but can't seem to find it now, can't remember whether it was general/nepenthes or where.
    Here is the website address if anyone is interested in a Nepenthes holiday.

    Happy growing, Neil
    p.s. I have no connection with this site/ don't gain from advertising it etc. - - -I just thought some of you may be interested and missed the original topic.
    A 'pitcher gallery' is where the art is drawn by Mother Nature and a 'pitcher says a thousand words'.

    Yes, I saw it, Neil, and was most intrigued. However, what put me off was the price tag, which was a bit hefty.

    Which got me thinking, since we live so close to Malaysia and Indonesia, why can't we Singaporeans organise our own Nepenthes tours for a fraction of the price?

    US2600 for the Borneo(KK) trip is really too steep a price to pay.
    I've checked up some tour agencies here(S'pore), and the estimated price is around S$500, which claim to include nep trails.
    I plan to go this June; if it is free n easy by Air Asia, I estimated to spend only about S$300.

    To be honest, I never even looked at the prices but I agree that planning your own tour would work out much cheaper.
