How long is the flight to Borneo?

Flights to Borneo, Malaysia from Australia range from about 6h-16h. The shortest flights depart from Perth, Western Australia, whilst the longer flights depart from major cities in Queensland, New South Wales, and Victoria. Along with the departure city, your flight time will vary depending on the number and length of any stopovers en route to Borneo.

Where can you get direct flights to Borneo from?

You can book direct flights to Borneo from Perth, with daily direct flights serviced by Malaysia Airlines. If you’re booking Borneo flight deals from other cities, such as Brisbane, Sydney, or Melbourne, you can expect to make at least one layover on the way to Borneo. Common stopover cities for these routes include Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, and Bandar Seri Begawan.

How do you get from Borneo airport to the city centre?

When Borneo is your destination, you’ll alight at Kota Kinabalu International Airport (BKI), which is about 7.8km south of Kota Kinabulu city centre. There is no public transportation option from this airport. To reach the city centre from the airport, buy a ticket from the Airport Taxi counter in the arrivals terminal and hand it to a taxi driver at the rank outside the terminal. It will cost about A$11 for Kota Kinabulu city centre. If your destination is Tawau or Sanfakan in Sabah, or Kuching in Sarawak, it will cost you about A$23 by taxi to either city centres. You can also rent a car from the airport if you prefer to do the driving.

What are some things to do in Borneo?

Borneo is Asia’s largest island and part of the Malay Archipelago. It’s divided by the small nation of Brunei, 73% Indonesian Kalimantan, and the northern end that belongs to Malaysia, the most popular part for tourists to explore. It’s a popular destination for holidaymakers who want to surround themselves with abundant flora and fauna, thanks to Borneo’s sprawling green spaces and incredible wildlife. Have a once-in-a-lifetime type of experience at the Rainforest Discovery Centre in Sabah, where you can walk along elevated canopies to peer at rare birds, wild plants, and the occasional orangutan above the trees. You will most likely see a wild orangutan if you visit Kuching’s Semenggoh Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre, a refuge and education centre for Borneo’s endangered orangutans. Sail along the Kinabatangan River in Sabah for a chance to glimpse elephants, crocodiles, pythons, and Proboscis monkeys in their native habitat. Take a day trip to Labuan Island just off the coast of Sabah and enjoy an afternoon sprinting across warm sandy beaches and luxuriating in the deep blue ocean.

Do I need a passport or visa to fly to Borneo?

Australian citizens booking Borneo, Malaysia flight deals need a valid passport to embark on their journey, although a visa is not required for stays under 90 days.
