The Rough Guide To Malaysia, Singapore And BruneiBook - 2006
There's detailed coverage of Malaysia's superb natural attractions, including Taman Negara - the Peninsula's main national park, with its four gateways - and, in Sabah and Sarawak, Mount Kinabalu and the limestone pinnacles at Mulu.
Great beaches and islands also get full attention, including the islands of Langkawi, the Perhentians and the dive mecca of Sipidan. There's plenty on the indigenous tribes of Borneo too, including how to make upriver trips to traditional longhouses. The book also provides the lowdown on Singapore's burgeoning entertainment scene - from alternative gigs to cutting-edge theatre - and uncovers the secret charms of secluded Brunei.
All the background you need to get the best out of these multicultural nations is here, including a food vocabulary to help you order the best Malay, Chinese and Indian fare, and insights into local etiquette.
