Borneo. It has been a childhood dream to see wild orangutans and our dreams come true! Borneo is one of the biggest islands in the world and has 3 countries on the island. Indonesia, Malaysia and Brunei. We went to the Malaysian side of Borneo and saw Orangutans, Probiscus monkeys & crocodiles.

Quick tip: Do your research before going. Borneo (Malaysian side) has a lot going on in the north and the south, but not much in between. 

We spent 2 weeks in Kuching which is the south, but with a bit more planning, 10 days in Kuching would have been enough and 10 days in Kota Kinabalu would have been great. Home to some beautiful beaches & you can get a domestic flight from one to the other.
