Malaysia/Borneo in January
22nd November, 2013
I'm heading over in Malaysia in January. Originally, I was hoping to go to the Perhentian Islands, but it looks like things are pretty shut down due to monsoon season. However, I have read mixed reports about Borneo - some say that it's rainy, but also that it's pretty temperate all year round anyway. Is the rainy season really bad around that time? I would like to hike Mt Kinabulu in particular. Would love any other travel recommendations for Malaysia!
A bit of background - female, late 20s, huge art nerd, loves to eat and likes a good mix of cultural days, trekking and relaxing on the beach.
Thanks for any advice!

hi , jg44 . I'm new in this forum . I'm Malaysian who just moved to Kota Kinabalu city two months ago . i managed to visit a few places in here such as Tip of Borneo , Padas Hot Spring and Kundasang . What i can say about the weather here is you can expect raining during the evening . If u plan to stay in the city there is a few cheap hostel that cost u about RM30 . i think you can stay at the city to enjoy the view of the island and it's a good place for the sun whorshipper .

How much time do you have?
I've only been in the rainy season and I actually enjoy the afternoon showers. I have not had my trip disrupted due to flooding or had to change/leave locations because of it.
Mt. Kinabulu will be hit and miss. You don't know what the weather will be like until you wake up that morning.
You might consider researching the Kinibatangan River and Gunung Mulu National Park.
