General Information

Borneo boasts some of the world’s most incredible wildlife, equatorial rainforests and a vibrant indigenous culture.

Gay travellers should exercise caution when travelling to Borneo. Public displays of affection are not advised.

We can put together a tailor-made itinerary for you, ensuring you’ll be staying in hotels that welcome gay couples. We would not, however, advise travelling to the smaller part of the island governed by Brunei. It is deeply conservative.

What Everyone Does In Borneo

Sail the Kinabatangan River and discover some of the incredible wildlife, including proboscis monkeys, native tribes and elephants. It’s like something from The Lost World.

What Some People Do In Borneo

Head into Borneo’s rainforst during  Rainforest World Music Festival and watch a live show celebrating the islands traditional culture. It’s quite an experience watching a gig in the rainforest – kinda like a scene from Fitzcarraldo.

What No One Else Does In Borneo

Discover The Penan people, a nomadic tribe who live in the rainforest. A guide can take you into the forest to meet them and share a picnic. They live in harmony with the land and their culture is a direct link to our distant hunter-gatherer past.
