Things to do whilst on holiday in Borneo

In the midst of this bio-diverse menagerie, observing the local wildlife in its natural habitat is a must-do experience. You could take up the Orang-utan Quest and camp out in the jungle, dine in the wild and traverse the landscape peppered by verdant jungle and flowing rivers. While you’re here, why not go bird watching in Sabah in the northern part of the isle? This activity will provide a multitude of tropical species for your viewing pleasure. More over, when it comes to wildlife, the Proboscis Monkey is one of the most spectacular species you’ll see on your travels. This monkey is endemic to the mangrove areas of the island and is characterised by its very distinctive long nose, potbelly, and light coat.

The local cuisine will captivate the taste buds, and a visit to this region can’t pass you by without sampling the exquisite culinary traditions of Borneo. The Sarawak Laksa – of Malaysian origins – is a delicious soup-based lunchtime meal featuring coconut flavours. Alternatively, why not try the native Kolo Mee or the delicious Tomato Kueh Teow. You’ll definitely have to sample it to truly appreciate and immerse yourself in the flavours of Borneo!

Weather in Borneo

Here you’ll enjoy a tropical and sunny climate every month of the year. With average temperatures of around 25ºC to 33ºC, your visit will provide very consistent weather patterns.
