Malaysia

Mainland Malaysia is located between Thailand and Singapore, with Malaysian Borneo and Indonesia each having land and sharing a border on the large island of Borneo. The Equator runs directly though these areas, so the country is covered in lush tropical rainforests and has dramatic landscapes of mountains with backdrops of sea. Along with the crystal clear waters around the islands themselves, Malaysia is an amazing destination for just relaxing on the beach, travelling to remote caves and mountains in the jungle, or scuba diving the rich waters of the country.

The monsoon season for Borneo is from November to February, and the dry season is considered to be from May through to October. However, Layang-Laynag is only open to divers from March to August. Diving is possible year round at Sipadan. Beside one liveaboard which is allowed to take divers to Sipadan, all other diving is from land based resorts.
