June's weather in detail


Kota Kinabalu, Kinabalu NP, Kinabatangan River, Danum Valley, Sepilok, Gaya Island, Lankayan & Selingan Islands, Mabul & Sipadan Islands

Hot, sunny, dry weather is the norm across Sabah in June. However, there is the possibility of occasional rainfall (as there is all year), especially in inland areas during the late afternoon, where you may well witness short thunderstorms. June is fruiting season in the forest, which makes it one of the best months of the year to spot orang-utans as they forage for a fruity meal. It is also an ideal month to spot turtles laying their eggs on the beaches of Selingan Island.

Avg daily temp: 29°C, avg monthly rainfall: 210mm.


Kuching, Damai Beach, Miri, Mulu National Park, Batang Ai

June marks the start of the traditional dry season in Sarawak with the region experiencing plenty of sunshine and one of its driest months of the year. Favourable trekking conditions can be enjoyed in Mulu National Park and the Batang Ai region, although there is always the chance of a downpour or thunderstorm so make sure you pack waterproofs.

Avg daily temp: 29°C, avg monthly rainfall: 200mm.
