Wendy Wu has introduced a new 16-day ‘Best of Borneo’ holiday available now from £3,790 per person and the first in a series of new holidays appearing in the operator’s new ‘South East Asia’ collection, launching this September.

The new tour comes in response to an increasing trend from customers for more experiential travel. Typically, Borneo has always been viewed as a very adventurous destination and the operator aims to bridge this gap and facilitate gentler paced tours focusing on cultural experience.

Linh Farid, product manager Southeast Asia for the operator, said: “We’ve seen a sharp rise in the number of travellers wanting more cultural and unique travel experiences that give a real sense of discovery. With Borneo you get the best of everything, local guides on hand to give travellers the best authentic and local experiences, excursions to several heritage sites, an amazing group atmosphere, great food and access to explore and stay in some of the of the most unique and richest ecosystems on the planet such as the Kinabatangan River. What’s more Borneo has some of the best beaches and diving areas in the world, making it the ultimate holiday destination with everything from the jungle to the coast.”

Highlights include a visit to Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre, the international centre for the rehabilitation of rescued and orphaned young orangutans; visiting a tribal longhouse with Borneo’s Iban community and insight into their tribal traditions; plus a rainforest hike at the foot of Mount Kinabalu, Borneo’s highest mountain and Malaysia’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site.

A range of optional excursions and extensions are available including three-nights at the Gaya Island Resort from £540 per person or a three-night stay at the Shangri-La Rasa Ria Resort and Spa from £440, for a relaxing close to the holiday.
