Travel Tips & Advice for Borneo

Borneo Activities

Borneo is the perfect backdrop for your Asian adventure, providing opportunities for snorkelling and diving, white water rafting, zip lining, jungle treks and wildlife tours, sailing, high rope walks, rock climbing, golf, cycling, boat tours, and so much more. If you find that all these activities are too much and you require a rest, you can spend some time at one of the island's many spas and indulgent resorts, where you may relax, unwind and prepare for your next adventure.

Borneo Food & Drink

The food of Borneo is inspired by three major cuisines: Malay, Chinese and Indian. Its dishes, therefore, are fragrant and sweet with a hint of spice. Seafood is popular, but the ways in which such dishes are prepared can vary depending on where you are on the island. Fine dining, with dishes inspired by European cuisine, is also available. Soft drinks, mineral water and fresh fruit juices are widely available. You should also try the local pulled tea (Tarik) during your stay.

Borneo Attractions

It would be impossible to think of Borneo without immediately imagining all of the many wonderful species that inhabit this beautiful island nation, including orangutans, tigers, rhinos and elephants. The dense forests and deep jungles of Borneo provide homes to clouded leopards, sun bears, frogs, monkeys and flying fox bats, while the coastal areas house brightly coloured fish and molluscs, turtles and jellyfish. Borneo's wildlife is inspiring to all who set foot on the island.
