Best time to travel to Borneo
Best time to travel to Sabah, Sarawak, Kalimantan and Brunei is during the dry season. However due to climate change rain can be expected during any time of the year. During the summer months the air quality may suffer due to forest fires. Transport may be difficult during the dry season due to the low water level in some rivers and therefore some villages, longhouses and interesting sights inland may be difficult to reach.
