Question: Hi there. I be going to Malaysia soon, is planning my iteneary. Very keen on visit Borneo Malaysia, however i can only afford 10 days, so I am thorn between Sabah or Sarawak. These 2 places seems very similar, and so which one should i be heading out too.

Answer:
Both Sabah and Sarawak are amazing places to visit, and I will definitely recommend both places to any visitor to Borneo. However if you have to choose between 1, it depends on your priorities.

For mountains and diving, Sabah is a better choice with Mt Kinabalu and Semporna. Alltho’ you can do Gunung Mulu in Sarawak, and some day hikes in Kubah, Mt Penrissen or Damai.

For cultural and historic, it have to be at Sarawak. the land of the White Rajahs, Penan, and erstwhile Headhunters. Most of Sabah historical buildings didn’t survive the World War II carpet bombings.
