Best time to visit Malaysia Borneo?

If you are traveling to Malaysia Borneo, it is best to visit this place between March and October. During this time, the climate is hot and dry, travelers tend to visit this time to experience the beautiful beaches and wildlife safaris. This time is also the best time to witness the orangutans in the wild. If you are traveling at this time, please carefully manage your flight and hotel in advance due to the peak tourist season.
