I am travelling to Asia soon (Singapore) and would love to take a side trip to Borneo to visit orchid farms and see orchids in situ on Mt. Kinabalu etc. Does anyone know of tour company that can organise such an excursion?Thanks.

Wolfgang Bandische is probably the single, most knowledgeable person about New Guinea orchids. He has a "contact" page that might be of some help.
