Destination Fly4free: Borneo

OT | 15 Oct 2016 18:00 | Liu Yang

Wild and exotic Borneo is full of natural wonders. The island has some of the world’s most species-rich equatorial rainforests, with wildlife sanctuaries dedicated to the rescue and conservation of the endangered Bornean orangutans. It’s a perfect destination for a trip of a lifetime!

The world’s third largest non-continental island brings together a surprising array of cultures, religions and languages. It’s divided into three countries: Indonesia (Kalimantan) across the south and central region, Malaysia (Sabah, Sarawak) in the north and Brunei on the north-western coast. Everywhere you go, you’ll encounter the warmth and unforced friendliness of local people.

Borneo is an awesome exotic destination for active holidays off the beaten track.
For the adventurous, the island offers many options to satisfy their needs. Go for a white water rafting adventure along some of the world’s most beautiful and challenging rivers, hike through the jungle across bamboo bridges, or take a safari trip in one of the many national parks. A visit to the see the orphaned or abandoned orangutans at the Sepilok Rehabilitation Center (Sabah), will melt the heart of the hardiest traveller. If you’re fit enough, don’t miss a chance to climb Mount Kinabalu (4 096 m), the highest peak of South-East Asia.
