This is a typical Borneo programme highlighting all the major iconic sights of the island. Observe the diverse culture and rich history of the country with a city tour of the vibrant hub of Kuching, and taste the fresh delicacies of the coastal city, Kota Kinabalu. Learn about ancient traditions of the indigenous Iban tribes with a tour of an authentic longhouse. Be mesmerised by the country's impressive rainforest with a stay in the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Kinabalu National Park. Within the dense jungle rare and exotic flora and fauna thrive - a visit to the amazing Sepilok Orang Utan Centre in Sandakan allows you to get up close to the country's most famous primate, while a river cruise along the Kinabatangan river, the park's lifeline, places you at the centre of the country's wildlife haven. This is a diverse tour that allows you to experience all the country has to offer, immersing you in its fascinating history, energetic urban scene and natural treasures.

Temperatures throughout Borneo remain dependably warm all year round, generally topping 30 degrees during the day with similarly consistent levels of humidity. Rain is also a reliable companion across the seasons, but short sharp showers give way to more prolonged downpours during the wet season. The western part of Sarawak is likely to be wettest between December and February, whereas in Sabah the wettest months are September and October. But this is an island used to the rain, and your plans are unlikely to be disrupted because of it.
