What You Can Expect to See On Borneo Nature Tours...

Borneo is widely considered one of the most beautiful places on the Earth. It is the third largest island by land area; it is also the biggest island that is still considered part of Asia. Interestingly enough, there are actually three different countries that claim some sovereignty over parts of the island; it is unique in this way. The northern parts of the island are governed by Brunei and Malaysia. The southern part of the island is Indonesian. The Indonesian portion consists of about 75% of the island. The different sovereignties on the island make visiting there an incredible opportunity to experience the juxtaposition of three different nations and cultures in a small space and unique setting. There are many elements of Borneo that borrow from Indonesian, Bruneian, and Malaysian culture. Beyond that though, it can be difficult to travel around at times, as navigating three different governments has some hiccups. Booking your holiday with a professional service is the best way to avoid any kind of confusion. Borneo nature tours go much more swiftly if you hire knowledgeable professionals. The flora and fauna in Borneo is way too beautiful for you to wing it on your own. Here are some of the things you might see if you book a nature tour through a professional tour company.

Furthermore, there are about 15,000 unique species of flowering plants. Because Borneo’s rainforest is so old, many of the different...
