It's worth searching Sarawak, Sabah, Brunei and the Indonesian provinces separately if considering a holiday. The island is an extremely interesting place both in the interior and in the towns around the coast. The museum at Kuching, Sarawak is worth a day of anybody's time, or many days for enthusiasts. I spent about three years in the Malaysian part of Borneo back in the 1960s working on mapping projects in the interior (a few pictures at http://www.pbase.com/hhmrogers/malaysia or see a Blurb book I put together at http://www.blurb.com/books/592011-just-a-glimpse ). It's worth remembering, in the context of Development (wise or unwise), that populations do grow and people do need to eat. While traditional ways of life can be made to look very romantic in pictures, the day to day reality can be demanding. I have family ties in Malaysia and Singapore through my wife and so have remained in touch.
