Book your holiday to Borneo with Wendy Wu Tours
Borneo holidays are packed to bursting with culture, wildlife, jungle and beaches and although the secret is most definitely out it remains wonderfully off-the-beaten-track destination meaning that it has managed to remain relatively pristine.
Of course the prime draw of any Borneo holiday is the wildlife and natural beauty to be found in its incredible reserves and parks. Bako National Park is one of the best places in Sarawak to see rainforest animals in their natural habitat and boasts spectacular coastal scenery. Semenggoh Nature Reserve and Sepilok Orangutan Centre act as sanctuaries for orangutans that have been rescued from captivity , whilst Mount Kinabalu National Park offers spectacular landscapes, beautiful scenic walking trails and lush tropical gardens. Jewel in the crown is the Kinabatangan River, one of the most exciting places to explore the rich biodiversity of Sabah offering an incredible opportunity to see a large range of wildlife including Borneo’s unique proboscis monkeys, the wild orangutan, Bornean pygmy elephants, crocodiles, and countless rare and beautiful birds.
Don’t think it’s just about the natural attractions though on a holiday to Borneo. Kuching, the capital, has a very diverse ethnic mix including the native Iban people, Chinese and Malay as well as many other minority groups. Borneo’s most stylish and sophisticated city brings together a multitude of cultures, crafts and cuisines. Wander down the waterfront promenade, and soak up the individual culture by ambling through the contrasting modern and colonial streets.
The Iban people, mostly located in Sarawak, have long been considered a fearsome and strong tribe, notorious for their history of headhunting. Traditionally living in basic accommodation called longhouses, more recently these dwellings have progressed along with modern technology, with some even having access to electricity and internet. A meeting with these unique people may well turn out to be the highlight of your holiday Borneo.
