The hot and humid period from March through October is the best time to visit Borneo. This is when the canopy walks are at its finest and Kakabah lake, full of stingless jellyfishes, is ready to let you in.
The island’s peak season lasts from May through September, so it is better to book in advance to find decent accommodation. The temperatures rise even higher in the run-up to the wet season, which takes place between November and February. As the weather is vagarious all year round, with December and January being the wettest, the rain is not an obstacle for exploring Borneo. The island’s attractions are less crowded during this time. The nature is vibrant and the prices for rooms and flights are more than affordable. Moreover, this is when you can take in the vibe of Cap Go Meh or Gawai Dayak.
