Sabah and Sarawak, Malaysian Borneo, with its many attractions from romantic beaches to scenic mountains may well be the perfect setting for couples seeking a romantic getaway, or a unique honeymoon holiday, or even a dream wedding destination.
Malaysian Borneo's unique appeal lies in its its beauty, charm and warmth, as well as its rich cultural heritage which is an amalgam of three of Asia's great civilizations - Malay, Chinese and Indian together with the ethnic groups of Sabah and Sarawak, and the influence of the British colonial period. A kaleidoscope of colourful and interesting places, peoples, customs, celebrations, festivals, the arts and delightful cuisine - a wonderful treat of exotic sights, sounds, smells and tastes for the senses.
Endowed with an abundance of Mother Nature's wonders, Malaysian Borneo offers an exciting range of holiday experiences all year round for both the active and those seeking pure relaxation.
