October weather & where to go

By October, visitor numbers are down after the peak season, meaning a quieter safari whether you are looking for wildlife, beach or both. The rain is starting to move in as we leave the ‘dry’ season, but there is still plenty of sun to be enjoyed and your chances of fine weather are actually excellent.

Hornbill, Borneo

In Sabah days can be a mix between sunshine and rain, but this is likely whenever you travel. Trekking is still wonderful in October, as is the diving which is actually at its prime at Sipidan.

In Sarawak, the rain is coming in a little stronger than in Sabah, but in areas such as Mulu you are still likely to enjoy some sunshine and the weather is still warm, even if it is a little wet, at about 28 degrees Celsius.
