Borneo by Fleewinter

A trip to Borneo is one you won’t soon forget. Look for orangutans and pot-bellied proboscis monkeys in the trees and pygmy elephants in the jungle. Listen to the sounds of hornbills, owls, and a chorus of insects high in the forest. Talk with descendants of headhunters and spend a night in a longhouse, sharing a meal with your hosts who have adapted their traditional ways to a modernizing world. If you're up for a real adventure, climb the highest mountain in Southeast Asia on a two-day hike, summiting at sunrise. Or trek into the Maliau Basin, Sabah's Lost World, to truly experience life in the jungle.

If a beach holiday appeals, there are great options in Borneo with Gaya Island
