Borneo is rapidly becoming a top Asian tourist destination so Freedom Asia reveals how to make the most of this magical island
As the thirst for adventure holidays becomes greater the tropical Malaysian island of Borneo garners greater attention. Lush, dense rainforests, colourful reefs, mighty mountains and unique wildlife including orang-utans and turtles, inspire visitors to Borneo with a real sense of adventure.
Borneo holidays are increasing; Sabah Tourism points out that 2,275 Brits ventured to Borneo in the month of April alone. This unique landscape, filled with diversity and a plethora of natural and cultural sites and experiences requires first-hand travel knowledge and tailor-made planning and that's exactly what Freedom Asia offers. Its travel experts offer a free planning service allowing customers to choose from hundreds of hotels, beach resorts, tours and activities to create their own dream holiday.
Holidays Borneo should aim to be as diverse as the islands flora and fauna, although in reality achieving this is impossible on one holiday - even in an entire lifetime it is impossible to experience everything in Borneo. Just in one national park, Mount Kinabalu in Sabah, there are more plant species than in all of North America and Europe combined. However, Freedom Asia has plenty of tours and accommodation on offer to help travellers see the best of both Borneo states, Sabah and Sarawak.
Tours range in price from £259 to £1015, so all budgets are catered for, and include national park visits, watching turtles hatching on the beach or orang-utans careering through the rainforest, cultural adventures where travellers can learn how to use a blow pipe and visit a traditional longhouse and cruising along inland waterways on a longboat.
Borneo is still wild and relatively untouched and intact making it a popular choice for travellers seeking adventure, originality and authenticity. Because Freedom Asia's tours are small in size, low-key and work with local companies, they contribute immensely to the local communities living in Borneo and this helps maintain the region for future generations to explore, even as tourists numbers increase.
