Trip Notes

Homosexual sexual acts are illegal in Malaysia and displays of same-sex affection should be avoided in public. Whilst being gay is illegal under law, our Malaysian guides and agents will not discriminate based on sexuality or gender identity. Our local operators have asked you to be discreet and not request a shared double bed in hotels if in a same-sex relationship or to make public displays of affection. The dominant religion in Sabah is Islam but it is a very sparsely populated region, which relies on tourism as a major source of income.

We believe in engaging with supportive and liberal guides and businesses in countries with no LGBTQ rights to show that welcoming all travellers has benefits. We do not feel that boycotting a country will change local opinions for the better but rather give our business to those who support our cause for equal rights.
