Our Guides to Borneo
Borneo is nature at its most magnificent, from the towering rock pinnacles and deep caves of Mulu National Park, to pygmy elephants on the banks Kinabatangan River, to orangutans swinging through the rainforest in Danum Valley. The island is still home to a number of indigenous tribes, whom you can spend time with in their traditional longhouses. Borneo also now has a number of luxurious beach resorts, meaning the island really does have it all; adventure, wildlife, culture and relaxation.
This being said, the majority of accommodation in Borneo, including the higher-end properties, is much more basic than you will find in the likes of Thailand and Indonesia. This does mean it is not for everyone, however it also means it should be top of the list for those who are more focused on the nature rather than the hotels, and travelers who like to feel a bit more off the beaten track.
