Welcome to Borneo

Borneo

Borneo Holidays and Honeymoons

Malaysian Borneo is home to beautiful Sabah. The second largest state in Malaysia, it is a land of adventure rich in natural diversity, beautiful beaches and unique cultures. Home to the world’s largest flower, one of the world’s top dive sites and one of the highest mountains in South East Asia, Sabah has it all. Backpackers will revel in all that this beautiful land has to see and do.

Sabah offers everything from verdant rainforests and coral reefs to majestic mountains and unique wildlife. The warm, friendly locals are wonderfully hospitable and make a visit to Sabah even more memorable.

The cultural diversity in Sabah can be attributed to the 32 officially recognized ethnic groups that can be found there today. The Chinese are the largest non-native ethnic group and so influence life in Sabah.

Kota Kinabalu is the city capital of Sabah and also the capital of the West Coast Division of Sabah. Located on the Northwest Coast of Borneo Island against the backdrop of Mount Kinabalu, this stunning ‘Nature Resort City’ stretches along the coast and towards the inland. This popular tourism getaway is one of East Malaysia’s busiest industrial and commercial hubs and features many attractions such as a wildlife park and cultural village.

Sepilok is home to an orang utan sanctuary, which rehabilitates orphaned baby orang utan. A popular tourist attraction, it offers visitors a chance to view the animals in their natural habitat. There is a viewing gallery and feeding platform where the apes are fed milk and bananas.

Poring is also popular with tourists who come to unwind and de-stress in the Poring Hot Springs. The hot sulphuric minerals are claimed to have healing properties and relax aching muscles. Poring is also home to a butterfly farm, Orchid Conservation Centre, tropical garden, canopy walkway, and Rafflesia flower site.

Unique wildlife and beautiful landscapes make Sabah a must visit. With a wealth of things to see and do, it is an ideal destination for the adventurous backpacker.
