Sticky Rice Travel is a bona fide boutique travel agency dedicated to creating unforgettable adventures through responsible travel practices. Based in Sabah, East Malaysia, we put our passion and expertise behind every trip to craft what we call meaningful adventures. Our mission is to create long-term positive effects on the natural environment and communities we work with, and to act as a catalyst for inspiring responsible tourism practices in Malaysian Borneo.

Our Passion

We are passionate about what we do and how we do it. We will show you the must-sees, but can also deliver exciting off the beaten track experiences. We are not your average travel agency - we continuously handcraft new trips, explore edgy ideas, and discover hidden trails. Check out some of our adventures.

Give Back

If you are looking for ways to travel responsibly and leave a positive impact on Malaysian Borneo, keep your eyes peeled for packages with our GIVE BACK icon. These programs feature small scale community-run projects that are creating an alternative livelihood for rural and remote communities. One hundred percent of your trip costs will go toward the community that you visit. Join us for some meaningful adventures.

Bringing you meaningful adventures

As travelers, we love off the beaten track adventures. Borneo attracts people who share the same zeal and interest, and Sticky Rice Travel was formed on that notion. Our knowledge is based on personal experience, our guides are some of the best in the business, and we are always out discovering new trails. We are firm believers in community involvement and sustainability, and strive to deliver adventures that are not only memorable, but that also leave a positive mark on the local Bornean people.
