Travelling Borneo

Posted by kranky86 on 17/8/2011 at 02:17

Hi all,
i am a first time traveller, going to Borneo in the next few months. Can people recommend places to go, tings to do?
I have family over in Kuching but don't just want to stay there, i want to explore the whole island. I only have a window of about 3 weeks though, so i hope this will be enough?

Hi there,
When r u coming to Borneo?
Shouldn't miss
1/ Mulu Caves
2/ Mt. Kinabalu
3/ Kinabatangan river
4/ Mabul Island
5/ Semporna and Sipadan
Actually, Borneo has a lot to offer besides those.
If you come to Borneo this month, dun miss out the Hungry Ghost event on 28th August at Marudi. The event starts at 4pm for burning the money papers until late night where people
try to rush up the tall stage to grab the food.

Borneo is superb place to visit. There are many attractions that can easily win your heart. If you are going for a short period of time then I'd prefer tou to go to Kuching city which is the cleanest city in Malaysia. It uncovers the past and ponder the future at the famous Sarawak Museum. Then you can go Anah Rais which exist in Sarawak. Saravak's national park is also famous, situated at Bako.
