Borneo is a rugged island in South-East Asia, famous for its stunning beaches, legendary rainforests and a diverse ethnic and cultural background. With its vast wildlife and natural coastline, it is the ideal honeymoon destination for couples who love to explore untouched parts of the world.

The country is one of only two places on the planet that you can see orangutans in their natural environment. Join a safari group to see them in the wild or visit the Sepilok Rehabilitation centre, where they care for orphaned orangutans.

After the adventure of the rain forests, you can head to the coast to relax and unwind. There are plenty of luxury resorts to choose from or alternatively if you want something more rustic, Mañana is a pretty beach only accessible by boat. There are no cars or shops, no phone signal and there isn't even any power during the day so the only reason you'll have to leave your hammock is to head to the beach bar.

If you enjoy being by the coast but don't fancy spending your days on a sunbed, then you could try diving. Sidapan Island, just off the coast – is home to one of the best diving schools in the world.

Kuching is considered one of Borno's most sophisticated cities, with a great mixture of old and new traditions. The city is home to historic Chinese temples, a south Indian Mosque and a vibrant riverfront, where you can try authentic food and visit shops selling traditional, handmade goods.

Five Things to Do During Your Honeymoon in Borneo
