Borneo

About Borneo

Far removed from most regions of the world, Borneo is a land that is as exotic as they come, complete with fauna that has managed to generate environmental interest with a view to preserve it and flora that weirdly resembles something that a painter conceived with childlike indulgence. Orchids manifest themselves in manifold colours as if competing in a pageant and rainforests weave a dense foliage of green where gibbons and orangutans move furtively as if aware that this is their last haven. Thousands of species of flora and fauna lurk within the jungles, matched by those that prowl among the ocean floor. The cities themselves are a melting pot of different cultures, which has an inevitable impact on the regions cuisine – some of them so improbable but always flavourful it’s a wonder it hasn’t gone more global. Besides the jungles and the rivers for which it is known, the multitude of ethnic groups that have given shape to the land isn’t without an interesting past and delving into them makes Borneo more than just the land of exotic plants and animals and a must see for travellers in their 30's and 40's.
