Approximately 40 minutes from Kota Kinabalu International Airport


Borneo's year-round temperatures average between 27°– 32°C, and as with all tropical islands, climates are unpredictable and rainfall can occur at any time of year, often changing very quickly with showers turning to sunshine in minutes. The most popular (and drier) months to visit are May to September. Between November and March the rainfall peaks, although even at this time of year rainfall can be sporadic, and it’s difficult to forecast which will be wet weeks and which will be dry.
