Lying to the east of Peninsular Malaysia is the island of Borneo. On the northwest side of this huge island are the two East Malaysian states of Sarawak and Sabah with the independent state of Brunei nestled between them. The remainder of the island is Indonesian Kalimantan.
Sarawak is home to many indigenous hill tribes who still live in traditional stilted houses on the river-sides and were still headhunting during the Second World War. Sabah is more mountainous and boasts Mount Kinabalu, at 4,100 metres the highest mountain in South-East Asia.
We mention only a few locations from Kuching running northeast to Kota Kinabalu in this relatively new cruising destination. With the development of top class marinas and Malaysian Tourism board’s support, we expect many more cruising yachts exploring this amazing coastline.
