Sitting directly on the equator, Borneo is home to epic rainforests, rare wildlife, expansive diving and unique cuisine. Support local conservation efforts by visiting the rainforests where you can see native pitcher plants and orchids, or catch a glimpse of proboscis monkeys, gibbons, pygmy elephants, endangered orangutans or even the rare clouded leopard. You can also spot the Irrawaddy dolphins cruising around Borneo’s coast, or go diving to get up close with turtles and other marine life.
The island – divided between Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei – is home to many ethnic groups and cultures. Stay in Chinese-influenced cities, Malay kampung villages on the coast, and visit other indigenous groups such as the Iban, Dusun, Murut, Penan, Rungus and Bajau spread around the island.
Borneo is also a foodie paradise, with each culture offering its own unique cuisine. Try Malay satay, spicy Indonesian dishes, Chinese seafood, Bario pineapple curry, Iban bamboo chicken, and Dayak brinjal soup.
