Many people are wondering where they can get acquainted with animals and plants never seen before, relax in the bosom of a mysterious and unknown nature, plunge into the world of romance. It should be noted that such places can be found in different parts of the world, but most of them are in the tropics, where it rains daily, the scorching sun burns, and the air humidity reaches 100%. After getting acquainted with the nature of the island of Borneo, nothing can surprise a tourist, since such a huge number of endemics live here, which you will not find anywhere else. However, most of them are absolutely safe, with the exception of poisonous snakes and crocodiles.
Borneo is the third largest island in the world. It is located in the South China Sea, at the confluence of the Pacific and Indian Oceans, between Australia and Asia. The entire territory of the island of Borneo is divided between three states. The largest of them belongs to Indonesia, but it has not yet been landscaped, so it is unsuitable for tourist routes. A very small territory belongs to the Sultanate of Brunei, but the rules for entry and stay are soare severe that there are very few vacationers here. The Malaysian part is the most suitable for tourists, because in this place you can find everything for an active and relaxing holiday.
The nature of the island of Borneo is very diverse. There are snow-white beaches, high mountains, impenetrable jungles, deep caves, coral reefs, fast rivers, marshy swamps. There is every reason to believe that the most ancient forests in the world are located on the island, there are still territories here that no man has set foot on. Long-term isolation affected the appearance and abilities of local residents. Most representatives of the fauna of the island of Borneo are distinguished by their harmlessness, but there are also predatory species, even among plants.
Only in this corner of the planet you can meet the smallest rhinos, pygmy elephants, dog-sized bears, proboscis monkeys, the longest snakes - reticulated pythons, very beautiful and absolutely safe clouded leopards. In addition, very interesting representatives of the flora grow in Borneo: several types of rafflesia, whose flowers reach a meter in diameter and “smell” with rotten meat, as well as nepenthes, the largest predatory plant that can digest not only an insect, but also a mouse, lizard or rat.
