Why we love Malaysia & Borneo

The latest insight from our time spent exploring Malaysia & Borneo

Scenery

Malaysia’s an extraordinarily diverse country with its eye-grabbing landscapes, misty highlands, dense rainforests, wildlife, beaches and modern cities. Explore the hidden world of Mount Kinabalu, it is not all about reaching the top. The faunas and orchids are the perfect excuses to stop and smell the flowers.See the firefly displays which are so immense they will put the night's sky to shame.

Jungle

Delve into the Jungle for wildlife experiences on the Kinabatangan River. Borneo Rainforest Lodge is located in a magnificent setting beside the Danum River, in Sabah’s largest protected area of lowland dipterocarp forest. Enjoy guided nature walks with experienced naturalists through undisturbed riverine and lowland dipterocarp forest. There are numerous opportunities to see a compendium of exciting creatures such as proboscis monkeys, orang-utans, silver leaf monkeys, pygmy elephants and an assortment of special bird species.

Beaches

Malaysia’s Borneo is renowned for its beaches. With very few hotels to choose from, it's a very refreshing place to go on holiday. Langkawi, being one of them, consists of an archipelago of ninety-nine islands in the north-west corner of Peninsula Malaysia on the Thai-Malaysian sea border. You can enjoy the beach, surrounded by lush green vegetation and impressive limestone formations out to sea.

Adventure

For the adventurers, there are some very impressive treks to embark on. Hike up climb Mount Kinabalu, to the summit of South East Asia’s Highest Peak. You might also head to Mulu for some lighter trekking and also to explore multiple caves, experience the bat precession, swim in waterfalls, picnic in shady spots outside the caves and experience true village life.
