Lonely Planet Borneo travel guide

It’s a jungle out there! Borneo has some of the world’s most wildlife-rich equatorial rainforests, incredible landscapes (above and below the waves) and rich indigenous culture.

Explore Sarawak’s giant caverns, trek through Sabah’s dense jungle, meet orangutans in Kalimantan; all with your trusted travel companion.

Lonely Planet writer Anna Kaminski describes why she loves Borneo. "During my visits to Borneo the island has always struck me as the ultimate all-rounder. Whether you're trekking through remote, barely penetrable jungle, exploring underwater worlds brimming with reef fish, sharks and turtles, spotting unique wildlife or exploring vast caves, Borneo has it all. In contrast with the sophisticated coastal cities, the remote interior, rich in indigenous culture, is still imbued with a magic and mystique that has drawn travellers to Borneo for generations. Stay in a traditional longhouse, forage for your dinner in the jungle and experience tribal hospitality, and you'll depart with lifelong memories."
