Most trips to Borneo start out in the Malaysian state of Sabah. The friendly region is a blend of modernity and indigenous tradition and features a satisfactory nightlife scene – worth mentioning are the bars along the Waterfront Esplanade. Meanwhile Malaysia’s other easternmost state, Sarawak, has plenty of places for after-hours festivities – the capital, Kuching is the best quadrant for clubbing districts. In the meantime, Brunei, a tiny Sultanate located on the north coast of Borneo is an Islamic emirate, banned the sale and public consumption of liquor in 1991 so its after-dark scene is predictably uninteresting. In comparison Indonesia’s Kalimantan is a boisterous destination with plenty of drinking joints.
