What to Expect When Arriving in Borneo

Brunei

Brunei International Airport (BWN) is the country's main airport. Situated at its northeast tip, this single-terminal facility hosts international flights to Asia, Oceania, and Europe.

East Malaysia

Situated in Sabah, Kota Kinabalu International Airport (BKI) is Malaysia's second busiest airport and the central hub of East Malaysia. It's located 8km away from downtown and hosts a wide assortment of direct flights throughout Asia.

Serving the area of Sarawak, Kuching International Airport (KIA) sits 11km from Kuching's main core. This secondary airport in East Malaysia provides a decent number of direct flights to other Asian nations.

Kalimantan

Previously known as Sepinggan Airport, Sultan Aji Muhammad Sulaiman Airport (BPN) is this Indonesian territory's main airport. It's the only noteworthy airport in Kalimantan. The airport's runway is notorious for being unpleasant to land on. So, maybe consider avoiding flying into Borneo through this route!

What to See and Do in Borneo

When you're visiting Borneo, the island's best attractions are its natural, untamed wildernesses. For instance, the Borneo Rainforest is thought to be 140 million years old! There are exotic dolphins and saltwater crocodiles swimming through its South China Sea, a multitude of monkeys in the lush trees, and a huge population of feral cats, which are friendly and often beg for handouts.

Borneo holds plenty of national parks, including Gunung Mulu National Park in East Malaysia and Kalimantan's Tanjung Puting National Park. A popular site for climbers, Mount Kinabalu's stunning peaks are located in the Malaysian region too. Borneo's cultural diversity also leads to a rich, eclectic assortment of restaurants, which travellers are sure to enjoy.
