is the third largest island in the world, spanning an area that is almost 745,000 hectares in size. The Northern region is divided into Sabah and Sarawak under Malaysia with Brunei smack between the two, and Kalimantan in the South which is under Indonesia. Although the name ‘Borneo’ is often used to interhangeably describe any of those countries, it is really a misnomer as it was a title given by the Dutch during the colonial period and is no longer officially used.
Borneo is surrounded by the South China Sea in the north, the Sulu Sea in the North East, the Celebes Sea and Makassar Straits in the East and the Java Sea in the South. Borneo’s highest peak is Mount Kinabalu, located in Sabah, Malaysia. This also makes Borneo the sixth highest island in the world.
