Borneo – Things to do

Borneo Attractions

Prepare to be mesmerised by Borneo, the largest island in Asia where you’ll uncover some of the most rugged and unspoilt scenery on Earth. As you’ll know, Borneo is famed for its population of orang-utans which in Indonesian literally translates to ‘person of the forest’. Plus, the 4,095 metre-tall Mount Kinabalu in the northern region of Sabah is the tallest mountain in Southeast Asia.
