Holidays to Malaysia and Borneo make for a diverse experience. The exciting wildlife spotting and off-the-beaten-track, adventurous nature of Malaysian Borneo complement the highlands, cities and islands of Peninsular Malaysia. An added advantage is the lack of visa complications when combining Malaysia and Malaysian Borneo as they're technically the same country, albeit with a very different feel.
These suggested holiday ideas cover Borneo combined with further adventures in Peninsular Malaysia. There are excellent flight connections between Borneo's Malaysian hubs (e.g. Kuching & Kota Kinabalu) and airports in Peninsular Malaysia (e.g. KL, Langkawi and Penang), so you can combine them all with ease, whatever the length of holiday.
Remember that your experience is everything and we can design your holiday to suit. We listen to you and, with our distinctive experiences, we will craft your perfect holiday. Each trip is bespoke and privately-guided.
