Borneo Weather & Climate

Frequently viewed as a stepping stone to visit Borneo’s Sabah and Sarawak, the tiny Islamic Sultanate of Brunei (on the north-western coast of Borneo) is an oil- and natural gas-rich nation. 440km north of the Equator, it enjoys a warm equatorial climate, with temperatures that climb to the low thirties. Hot and humid throughout the year, the prosperous emirate has a tropical weather system – it rains (average annual rainfall is 3295mm) even outside the official wet season (between November and February). 

That being said, visitors don’t really have to worry about the weather – rain showers may be sudden but they’re short lived; so it’s best if you pack an umbrella. Alternatively, when the sun is shining, be sure to use sun block – the higher the SPF, the better.
