Dreaming of an exotic vacation in the middle of nowhere? Go to Borneo, the third biggest island in the world and check what the fuss is all about. This is the only place in the world where you can find Orangutans, and it is also home to the oldest rainforests on the planet. A 2-day hike to the Mount Kinabalu is a unique experience. The good news is that for this expedition you don’t need to be a professional mountain climber since many tourists have climbed the mountain without a problem. Diving in the Sipidan Island is also considered to be as one of the most popular activities for people who are visiting this amazing place.

Explore the Mulu Caves and go to the Boko National Park, where you will get to see the magnificent waterfalls and jungle streams. Kinabatangan River is best explored by boat and various species of animals and birds can be spotted during the organized boat tours. For a real Borneo experience, there is the Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre where locals provide medical help and take care of many Orangutans. Borneo is one of these places that should be included in everyone’s bucket list. The beautiful nature and the amazing panoramic view over the island are simply breath-taking and an experience of a lifetime.
