What a phenomenal holiday. We absolutely loved the Mt Kinabalu climb. The accommodation was generally superb and we were lucky to have a great group of enthusiastic travellers, which made it a trip to remember. Despite the fact that our itinerary was changed at the last minute (due to rebel insurgency and a 'Do Not Travel' warning for in East Sabah), our guide Rony made up for it. He was a fantastic leader and companion, and he provided us with incredible experiences and genuine insights into the culture and workings of Malaysia. I learnt a great deal and am very keen to visit again!

Welcome to Borneo (Malaysia)

The highest point in South East Asia? Check. Home to the descendents of headhunters? Check. Orangutans? Check. Three million bats in one cave? Check. The kind of scenery that looks like it’s straight out of the Jungle Book? You betcha.

What we’re getting at here is that Borneo has a lot going for it. And when you visit Borneo with Geckos, you can set off on the headhunters trail, float down the Kinabatangan River, climb Mt Kinabalu, search KK for the best food you can find, and of course…just sit around and take it all in. 

It’s pretty much the best way to see Borneo you can possibly think of.

South East Asia

From steaming jungle to palm-fringed beach, ancient empire ruin to bustling market and Buddhist temple to mighty metropolis, South East Asia is the classic adventure travel destination.

Climb Mount Kinabalu and meet orang-utans and headhunters in Borneo; drift through floating markets and spiritual splendour in Burma; explore ancient Ankor Wat and bustling Phnom Penh in Cambodia; tube down the Mekong River and swim beneath waterfalls in Laos; trek to hill tribes, bamboo raft down rivers and bask on beautiful beaches in Thailand; crawl through Viet Cong tunnels and get tailor-made clothes in Vietnam; surf perfect waves and walk the mighty Buddhist stupas in Indonesia; and travel across the Malay highlands to the island city of Singapore: South East Asia is diverse, exciting and glorious, full of diverse friendly folk, food and fun, and an experience you’ll never forget.
