Sarawak in Borneo

Sarawak — the most southern of the two states in Malaysian Borneo — is instantly most people’s favorite. Although Sabah, the state to the north, gets a lot of attention, Sarawak is friendly, cheap, and full of adventure opportunities.

Kuching — the capital of Sarawak — is one of the cleanest and most relaxed cities in Southeast Asia. Sarawak prides itself in traditions of the past; there always seems to be a festival or cultural happening to celebrate their many indigenous cultures.

Sarawak is an excellent place to begin your Borneo adventure. Cheap flights from Kuala Lumpur to Kuching make this state a great choice.
