Overview for Borneo

Sabah’s capital is Kota Kinabalu, a resort city of exciting contrasts and gateway to Mt. Kinabalu (4093m). Sabah also has beautiful islands, coral reefs and uncrowded white sandy beaches and is ideal for those who like to swim, snorkel or laze all day. Famous for its abundance of diving spots, Sabah is home to the noted Sipadan Island, considered one of the world’s top ten dive sites.

Sarawak is the land of the fabled White Rajahs, the hornbill and orang utan and is home to 27 ethnic groups, each with their own distinct language, culture and lifestyle. Miri is a great place from which to visit Lambir Hills and Niah National Parks. Mulu National Park offers pristine rainforest with limestone pinnacles and massive caves.
