The largest state in Malaysia, Sarawak is best known for its natural wonders. Largely enveloped by rainforests and playing host to all manner of wildlife, the state houses some of the world’s finest national parks including Bako, Gunung Mulu and Similijau. Animal lovers should head to the Santubong region – the area plays host to one of Malaysia’s unofficial mascots, the orang-utan, at the Semmengoh Orang-Utan Rehabilitation Centre. Alternatively, eco buffs can also take a peek at the endangered Irrawady River Dolphins along Sarawak’s riverine coasts.
If you’re tired of standard guesthouses and humdrum hotels, then a visit to one of these eco-friendly hotels and resorts may just be the remedy. Put a visit to the Borneo Highlands Resort or Hilton Batang Ai Resort in the books – in the thick of nature, a trip here will be one you won’t soon forget.
