Travel Borneo Here’s 8 Tips to Help Make Your Trip to Borneo a Lot Cheaper

1. Fly from Denpasar in Bali or Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia Malaysian Borneo is only a two-hour, super cheap flight from Bali or the Malaysian mainland. It’s rural, wild and full of adventure and best of all – you’re almost guaranteed to see an orang-utan. Although Borneo is much more expensive than other places in South East Asia such as Thailand2. Either stay in Borneo for a long time or pre-book everything This is going to be the best way for you to save money.

Pulau Kalimantan - Borneo (Regional Travel Guide)

Borneo (Regional Travel Guide) - Wild orangutans swing through jungle canopies, Irrawaddy dolphins play in the shimmering waters of the South China Sea and saltwater crocs watch boats gliding down the river in search of Dayak longhouses.” – Daniel Robinson, Lonely Planet Writer

Our Promise - You can trust our travel information because Lonely Planet authors visit the places we write about, each and every edition. We never accept freebies for positive coverage, and you can rely on us to tell it like we see it.

This book is a huge step BACKWARDS by Lonely Planet. Compared to the previous edition content has been cut back seriously, and the chapter covering Kalimantan (Indonesian Borneo, which covers 73% of the island) is so slim it is now almost useless. The entire huge province of West Kalimantan has been totally omitted from this edition, never mind that it has, among other things, the only land crossing between Malaysian and Indonesian Borneo. The coverage of the remaining three Kalimantan provinces is also so poor that you are much better off getting the Kalimantan chapter of LP's general Indonesia guide.

As for Malaysian Borneo, I guess the guide is OK, it covers all the touristy spots already covered in Lonely Planet's Malaysia Singapore & Brunei guide, but no more.
