Travel Health Information

Borneo is very friendly, they’re very laid-back, but remember that it is Islamic – so be respectful and keep fairly well covered up. Terrorists are likely to try to carry out attacks in Malaysia. Attacks could be indiscriminate, including in places visited by foreigners. Bars and restaurants, hotels, markets, shopping malls hosting major international brand outlets, tourist attractions, places of worship and airports are all potential targets. UK health authorities have classified Malaysia as having a risk of Zika virus transmission. Around 360,000 British nationals visit Malaysia each year. Most visits are trouble free, but incidents of petty crime, especially bag snatching, can affect visitors.

Borneo Destination Information

Borneo guarantees incredible photographs and lasting memories. The remarkable floating mosque at Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, appears to be floating on water, an optical illusion created by a lagoon on which it sits. You can see baby orangutans at Sepilok, Sabah, in the Kabili-Sepilok Forest Reserve, or marvel at the majestic Mount Kinabalu, Malaysia’s tallest peak. With conservation areas, rainforests and spectacular dive sites you’ll never be short on things to do in Borneo.
