      The Island of Borneo lies at the heart of Southeast Asia, just north of the Equator. It is the third largest island in the world and comprises 3 different countries: Malaysia, Brunei and Indonesia. It sits just south of the South China Sea with the Sulu Sea, Celebes Sea Makassar Strait, Java Sea and Karimata Strait surrounding the island. Borneo is comprised of the two Malaysian states of Sarawak and Sabah. Sabah is located on the northern point of the island and, although small, it certainly packs a punch.
