The two Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak make up roughly
the northern third of the island, the rest being part of Indonesia.
Comprised of dense rain forest, unique fauna and flora, white sandy
beaches and remote islands the regions are mainly known for their
versatile landscapes and wildlife species, including the wonderful
and rare orangutans,
proboscis monkeys and pygmy elephants.
As well as exploring some of the best wildlife spotting
locations in Southeast Asia visitors can also include an
interesting cultural aspect in their trip, as the regions are both
home to many different ethnic groups.
