The third largest island in the world, Borneo is split up into three countries: Indonesia, Brunei and East Malaysia. The Malaysian part of the island is separated by about 40km of the South China Sea, and makes up just over a quarter of Borneo’s land mass.

East Malaysia is much less populated than its Western counterpart and is therefore popular with tourists and holidaymakers who are looking for a peaceful holiday in Malaysia, far from the bright lights of the better-known Malay cities.

Borneo features luscious tropical rainforests, which boast a variety of fascinating and intriguing wildlife as well as stunning white beaches, which are perfect for soaking up the glorious East Asian sunshine.

Eastern Malaysia is perfect for those looking to have an adventure! With its varied scenery, incredible jungles and traditional towns just waiting to be explored – you will come back from your Malaysian holiday with unforgettable memories and stories.

Borneo Highlights

One of the most sensational highlights that Borneo has to offer is its vast and untouched rainforest territory and the unique wildlife that lives within the trees. If you would like to see some of the wildlife that Borneo has on offer then the Semenggoh Wildlife Centre is must be on your to do list! As it is located within the huge Semenggoh nature Reserve, the wildlife centre gives visitors the opportunity to see orang-utans happily swinging from vines and climbing trees in their natural habitat.


A hot spot for visitors to Eastern Malaysia is the city of Kota Kinabalu, which is situated in the state of Sabah in northern Borneo. This city offers a vast array of restaurants, which serve delicious menus of cuisines that are both local and international. If you want to have a truly unforgettable and mesmerising dining experience then head across to the Sunset Bar at Shangri-La’s Tanjung Aru Resort and Spa. The unique attribute of this bar and restaurant is that it is perfectly located to watch the sun set over the Malaysian horizon – a perfect way to end a day of exploring!

Active travellers should hike up Mount Kinabalu – one of the tallest mountains in South East Asia. You can pay for a guide to take you and other tourist groups through impressive jungles and up to the summit of the mountain at a whopping 4095 metres! From here you can take in the spectacular views across Borneo’s skyline and you can even book a hike where you arrive at the top as the sun rises over the mountains!
