Visiting Labuk Bay Park can work out prohibitively expensive, what with the entry cost, transport and the camera tax. Finally, I thought about it and decided that I hadn't gone all that way to miss out on seeing the rare monkeys because of the cost! For a backpacker it was exhorbitant, but we did have a really good day.
We saw proboscis monkeys up close several times in the day and could see how much they looked like humans - it was weird! And we saw a film explaining their way of life and why the species is endangered by palm tree plantations...
The added advantage is that the proboscis monkeys, and other species, aren't wild and let us get close to them.
The disadvantage is the cost of the day, but it is worth it.
