Borneo Malaysia Travel Pictures, Tips, Information
Sabah, Sarawak, Land Below the Wind, Hornbills
Borneo I came here almost on a whim because I liked the melodic sound of Kota Kinabalu when first I heard it, though I had no idea it was on the island of Borneo!
Sabah and Sarawak: When I traveled to the Borneo Malaysia states, here's what I saw:
Borneo rainforest plants Orchids, ferns, forest, hiking.
Turtle Island and Libaran island Boat ride down river, Sulu Sea.
Poring Hot Springs Butterflies, canopy walk, swimming.
Sarawak's Gunung Mulu Park bat caves Walking tours through jungle and into immense caves.
Sarawak river boat ride Explore the river, visit native village, market.
My trip to Borneo is one of the best trips I've ever taken! I hope you enjoy yours!
Kota Kinabalu is the capital of Sabah, one of the Federated States of Malaysia, and located on the island of Borneo. In Bahasa Malay, Sabah means 'The land below the wind". The winds that bring typhoons to the Philippines and Hong Kong don't reach this far south
Sarawak, the other Federated Malay state on Borneo, is known as the Land of the Hornbills, chiefly for the Rhinoceros Hornbills (this picture shows the carved wood hornbill souvenir I bought at the Royal Mulu resort in Sarawak) that are native to Sarawak.
While I didn't see a hornbill in Sarawak, I did see one and take its picture at the Nanning Zoo in China.)
Come tour the Island of Borneo, see amazing Sabah and take a river boat ride to the caves in Sarawak. Borneo is a natural beauty, and a fabulous travel destination.
