Borneo – famous for its orangutan rainforest, the famous Sipadan dive site and Mount Kinabalu – a must-visit for aspiring trekkers. Borneo is the third largest island in the world, bordered by the Java Sea to the south, the Celebus Sea to the east, China to the east and the South China Sea to the north. They comprise four political regions: the two states of Sabah and Sarawak in Malaysia; Kalimantan is part of Indonesia; and is the youngest sultan of the kingdom of brunei.
I have been to Kalimantan twice and visited 3 of its 4 political areas. It was the possibilities that drew me to this exotic island. Will you meet wild elephants and pygmy orangutans?
I never thought I would fall in love with Borneo’s unforgettable creations or develop a strong desire to never use palm oil again.
