Destination Fly4free: Borneo

OT | 15 Oct 2016 18:00 | Liu Yang | Comments: 1

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.

What to do:
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. You can also walk along the canopy walkway high up on the treetops or take a relaxing dip into the natural hot springs of Poring. Adventure trekkers, extreme watersporters and wildlife enthusiasts will find their wilderness paradise in Kalimantan.
