Usable Travel Tips for Borneo

Hi Readers!
Like most salty travelers, we know there are always regional “hook ups” that are unknown to me until we’ve spent some time in that area. Special knowledge that can only be found with travel, time in country and experience. We’d like to pass along some helpful knowledge about the Borneo region that can help navigate your time here and make best use of your travel resources. ENJOY

Tip #1
Fancy (and expensive) travel clothes and gadgets

I often stroll down the streets ok Kota Kinabalu, Kuching and other entry cities of Borneo and see my fellow travelers kited out with the latest GPS tracker, ventilated shirts or quick dry travel socks. While I myself enjoy these gadgets, my time in Borneo has shown me most of them aren’t suitable for this island. Most electronic travel items won’t work well here for lack of internet signal/speed, lack of electricity in the jungle (hindering the ability to charge) or weather (you’re going to sweat no matter how ventilated you might be). Instead save that coin to invest in tried and true local travel products once you’ve arrived like:

“Kampong Adidas” – AKA the best travel shoe for Borneo (maybe the world)… You can pick up a pair of these in any market from 6 – 15 Malaysian Ringgit they are great for trekking, water sports, beach let’s just say ALL terrain for Borneo. Also easy on the wallet!

Solar or wind able flashlights – You can find these beauties in any Chinese corner shop. They work, don’t need batteries and are usually less than 15 Malaysian Ringgit.

Poncho – Expensive Rain Jackets are nice… But nothing will keep you drier (with less sweat) than at 20 Ringgit rain poncho. It will fit over your backpack, in your pocket and keep you cool underneath all while saving you a few hundred dollars.
