Borneo Attractions

What to See in Borneo

A sprawling island straddling the Equator, Borneo’s landscape is a mixture of densely packed jungle, mangrove-tangled coastal areas and sun-kissed islands. A veritable Eden, the planet’s third-largest island is home to a smorgasbord of exotic fauna including the endangered orang-utan, Sumatran rhinoceros and Irrawady dolphin. Playing host to superlative sights including Mount Kinabalu (Southeast Asia’s highest peak), the Sarawak Chamber (the largest cave chamber in the world) and the rafflesia (the world’s largest flower), there’s so much to see and do in Borneo. Various nature preserves such as the Kinabalu National Park, Danum Valley Conservation Area, Gunung Mulu National Park and Tanjung Putting National Park make jungle trekking and mountain climbing foremost activities in most visitors’ minds. Alternatively, the technicolour coral of Sabah’s Semporna Archipelago and Kalimantan’s Sangalaki Archipelago merit a few days exploration.
