Have more time, second trip to Borneo, or looking for something specific? Here are some additional highlights when creating your custom Borneo travel plan. If this is your first taste of Borneo, visit our Essential Borneo page to discover must-see sites, attractions and travel destinations.

Turtle Island National Park

Comprised of three tropical islands, Pulau Selingan, Pulau Bakungan Kecil and Pulau Gulisan, Turtle Island National Park provides year-round opportunities to see marine turtles come ashore to lay their eggs.

The main season for green turtles is July to October, while hawksbill turtles appear from February to April. Permanent staff is stationed on all three islands for research purposes as well as to protect the turtles. The beautiful white-sand beaches and crystal-clear water also make the park an ideal place to relax and unwind.

Gunung Mulu National Park

Gunung Mulu, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is studded with soaring limestone pinnacles. This other-worldly terrain is home to thousands of species of flowering plants, fungi, mosses and ferns, as well as the world's largest cave chamber.

Keep an eye out for some of the 281 species of butterflies to be found here. Explore this tropical wonderland on a jungle trek, summit Gunung Mulu or go on a kayaking trip.

Kuching

One of the most attractive cities in Southeast Asia, Kuching has very little traffic or pollution and plenty of attractions. Visit Kuching's top-quality museums, explore the futuristic Civic Centre (which houses a planetarium), and take in the delightful cat statues, a visual reminder of the fact that Kuching means "cat" in Malay.

Visit nearby Bako or Kubah National Park for the chance to view exotic wildlife such as the rare and protected hornbill and proboscis monkey.

Kota Kinabalu

The capital of Sabah was destroyed during WWII and has since been rebuilt into a bustling city. Known as "KK," it is the gateway to the natural wonders of the area such as Mt. Kinabalu and the Tambunan Rafflesia Reserve, where the largest flower in the world can be found. Visit the Sabah Museum for its collection of tribal artifacts and the State Mosque to get a glimpse of modern Islamic architecture.

Mt. Kinabalu National Park

Mt. Kinabalu towers over the landscape at 13,428 feet and is generally a two-day hike from park headquarters. Many people opt to spend the night at a mountain hut or guesthouse and wake up early for a sunrise view from the summit (you can see the Philippines).

There are plenty of well-marked trails to explore at park headquarters as well. After the long journey, visit Poring Hot Springs for a chance to soothe tired muscles in one of the many pools that sit in the lovely garden. Poring itself is a colorful town in a lovely setting.
