1 nts Hilton Kuching, Kuching
PLUS

Standard room with breakfast

Sarawak's state capital, Kuching, is simply unique. No other city in the region has such a romantic and unlikely history, nor displays its charms with such an easy grace. The narrow, bustling streets are crammed with shops, temples, colonial-style architecture and several interesting museums, including the historic Sarawak Museum.

A journey up and down the Sarawak River is the best way to get your first impression of Kuching, as you see picturesque Malay villages, a golden-domed mosque, a Victorian fort, a whole street of 19th century Chinese shophouses and an imposing wooden-roofed palace, all set against a backdrop of distant mountains.

The Sarawak Museum houses an extensive collection that includes tribal artefacts, indigenous wildlife and a recreated longhouse.

Kuching is also the ideal stepping stone to the cultural delights of Batang Ai, one of Sarawak's Iban heartlands with numerous communities dotted along the network of rivers that feed the Batang Ai reservoir, which is referred to as Sarawak's Blue Lagoon. The typical dwelling for these communities is the longhouse and many of those around the lake receive visitors for overnight stays, which allow you to step back in time and observe their lifestyle, ancient crafts and experience a blow pipe demonstration.

2 nts Mengkak/Batang Ai Combination Tour,

Standard room 2, breakfasts, 3 lunches & 2 dinners

3 nts Damai Beach Resort, Borneo Beaches

Standard Hill View Wing room with breakfast

What better way to round off your Borneo adventure than with time to kick back and relax on a gorgeous beach.

Most of Borneo’s swathes of sand are clustered around Sabah and include the beaches of Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park, Tanjung Aru Beach and Pantai Dalit Beach.

Tunku Abdul Rahman is made up of five islands, including Gaya, where the enticements include idyllic beaches, dive and snorkelling sites amongst sprawling coral reefs, along with the chance to kayak or enjoy some light jungle trekking. Tanjung Aru Beach takes its name from the casuarina or aru trees that fringe the fine sands and is renowned for its amazing sunsets, while exquisite Pantai Dalit offers private expanses of soft white sand stretching almost as far as the eye can see.

On Sarawak, Telok Bandung faces the South China Sea and has a stunning backdrop of majestic Mount Santubong as well as dense tropical rainforest.

4 nts Nexus Resort & Spa Karambunai, Sabah

Borneo Garden Deluxe room with breakfast

Wherever you venture in the world there really is nowhere like Borneo. A truly great destination which has something to offer everyone from soft adventures to wildlife encounters. Straddling the equator and dominated by luxuriant rainforest, Borneo is a unique destination that provides a visual feast at every turn. The Malaysian portion is an exotic paradise comprised of two states, Sabah and Sarawak, boasting extraordinary landscapes, ancient tribes and astonishing wildlife.

Sabah may be the smaller of the two states but has a wealth of natural riches to explore including some of Borneos most beautiful beaches. Picture white sand stretching almost as far as the eye can see with a dense jungle-covered outcrop in the near distance. The gentle water is a playground for swimmers whilst diving enthusiasts will love the abundance of coral reefs and marine life.

One of Sabahs most iconic attractions is Mount Kinabalu National Park, a significant natural environment  dominated by Mount Kinabalu. Sabah's state capital, Kota Kinabalu, is a coastal city located on the west coast partly surrounded by rainforest. It's known for its bustling markets, modern boardwalk and waterfront Kota Kinabalu City Mosque.

Sabah's other highlight is of course the world famous Sepilok Orang-Utan Sanctuary where visitors can watch these adorable animals close up in their natural environment. A trip here is highly recommended.
