Borneo Holidays

Borneo is so rich in culture, cuisine and character that it is hard to know where to start. Once you start exploring, you will discover that there is always just that one more thing you want to see and add to your holiday in Malaysia. Often known as 'the other part of the country' is Malaysian Borneo – the northern part of the island of Borneo.

Malaysian Borneo is divided into the states of Sarawak and Sabah, with Brunei between them. Both states are bursting with lush green jungle areas, with a maze of rivers floating through the vast landscape, particularly in Sarawak. Your holiday to Malaysia would be incomplete without a trip to see Mt Kinabalu, Malaysia’s highest mountain.
