1 nts Hilton Kuching, Kuching
PLUS

Standard room - 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 Lemanak & Batang Ai Combo Tour, Borneo

Standard room - 2 breakfasts, 3 lunches & 2 dinners

Wherever you venture in the world there really is no holiday like a Borneo holiday. From mountains and rainforests, soft adventures and wildlife safaris to Iban tribes and the beloved orang-utan, there really is something for everyone. When you have had your fill of nature and culture, just sit back and relax on a beautiful palm fringed beach.

Straddling the equator and dominated by luxuriant rainforest, Borneo is a unique destination that provides a visual feast at every turn. It's the third largest island in the world with its territory shared by Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei. The Malaysian portion is an exotic paradise comprised of two states, Sabah and Sarawak, boasting extraordinary landscapes, cultural delights, astonishing wildlife and simply heavenly beaches.

Sabah may be the smaller of the two states but is blessed with a remarkable wealth of natural riches to explore. One of its greatest attractions is Mount Kinabalu National Park, a significant natural environment dominated by south east Asia's tallest peak, Mount Kinabalu. The abundant flora and fauna are worth the visit alone, but for those who like a challenge, joining an escorted tour to the summit of majestic Mount Kinabalu will live long in the memory.

The historic town of Sandakan is the gateway to Sabah's fascinating wildlife. Take a journey along the Kinabatangan River for the chance to see proboscis monkeys, macaques, monitor lizards, hornbills and, if you're lucky, pygmy elephants. At Sepilok Orang-Utan Rehabilitation Centre observe these endearing creatures as they are prepared for a life back in the wild, while at Turtle Islands Park witness scores of Green and Hawksbill Turtles crawl over the sands to lay their eggs.

In Sarawak wild encounters of a different kind await you. Venture deep into Borneo's interior to stay in a traditional longhouse with the Iban tribe, once renowned as head hunters! Witness tribespeople practicing ancient crafts and enjoy traditional dances, blowpipe demonstrations and training of fighting cocks. Also not to be missed are the Mulu Caves, said to be the largest in the world and home to weird and wonderful rock formations along with thousands of bats.

Once you've had your fill of experiences and adventures, Borneo's beaches are a simply heavenly place to relax and reflect on the wonderful treasures of this mystical island, so let Premier Holidays create the perfect Borneo holiday for you…

3 nts Nexus Resort & Spa Karambunai, Borneo Beaches

Borneo garden deluxe room - Breakfast

Both Sabah and Sarawak have an astounding array of superb beaches, which offer the perfect place to relax after taking in the many wonderful adventures and experiences of Borneo.

Most of Borneo's beaches 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, and are within easy reach of Kota Kinabalu. Along with Gaya's idyllic beaches, the island is surrounded by dive and snorkelling sites, while other activities include kayaking and 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. Exquisite Pantai Dalit offers private expanses of soft white sand and is an ideal retreat to relax amidst tropical surroundings.

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