Kuala Lumpur and Borneo Multi Centre Holiday

From the urban jungle of Kuala Lumpur to the very real jungle of Borneo, this multi-centre holiday is a fantastic way to embrace a trip full of both city sightseeing and sublime natural beauty and wildlife.

In Kuala Lumpur, you’ll explore a city of contrasts full of soaring modern skyscrapers and old colonial buildings. Pass beautiful temples and shrines and grand ornate mosques as you roam the city streets on foot.

Kuala Lumpur is a place for everyone, and even those that don’t deem themselves as ‘city people’ will fall in love with it. Gastronomes will adore the delectable cuisine on offer and will have many restaurants to choose from. Wildlife lovers will marvel at the sight of twinkling and enchanting fireflies that gather on the trees at Kuala Selangor.

From Kuala Lumpur, you’ll hop on a short flight to Kota Kinabalu in Borneo. Here lie lush, green and tropical rainforests which are home to a host of diverse, beautiful and exciting fauna. 

Most famously, Borneo is one of the best places in the world to observe the kind faced and flame haired orangutans that swing from tree to tree. Watching these gentle creatures interact with their natural environment is captivating and a special memory to hold.

Start your Malaysia multi-centre holiday with a trip to Kuala Lumpur, the country’s ultra modern capital. To explore all that the city has to offer we recommend spending a minimum of three nights here, as there is so much to do.

The most iconic buildings of Kuala Lumpur are the looming Petronas Towers that dominate the city’s skyline. Stand beneath them and you’ll feel tiny.

Kuala Lumpur is a foodie’s haven, and Malaysian food mixes influences of Indian, Chinese, Indonesia, and Thai culture. As you can imagine, this results in fare that’s both unique and delicious. From street food stalls to Michelin starred menus, you’ll find it all here.

While most of the wildlife comes with your trip to Borneo, in Kuala Lumpur you have the chance to observe glimmering and twinkling fireflies in their natural habitat. Head to Kuala Selangor to admire the tiny creatures that shine and sparkle in the trees.

Borneo is a wildlife lover’s paradise. The island is full of verdant green rainforest and some of the most diverse fauna found on earth, many of which are sadly endangered. However, that makes Borneo one of the best sites for spotting rare and elusive wildlife.

Our overnight Nature of Borneo tour allows visitors to soak in some of the island’s key highlights of Sandakan. This includes a visit to the renowned Sepilok Orang-utan Rehabilitation Centre. Here orphaned orangutans are rescued from logging sites, plantations and illegal hunting. Many of the orphaned orangutans were also previously kept as pets. The organisation is run to protect and look after the remaining orangutan populations and raise awareness of the creature’s troubles worldwide.

Should you wish for some relaxation from your city trip and your wildlife excursions, Borneo is home to plenty of idyllic beaches and luxury hotels and resorts.
