About this book
Straddling the equator, Borneo is the third largest island in the world. Largely covered in rainforest, with a magnificent coastline, it is easy to see what attracts visitors. Comprised of Sabah, Sarawak and Brunei, Borneo's unique biodiversity and cultural kaleidoscope appeals to both adventurers and those looking for a unique cultural experience.
Updated throughout, this revised guide caters for all with information on how to trek through one of the region's national parks, catch a glimpse of an orang-utan, spend the night in a longhouse, or shop in the bustling markets.
From the highlands and islands of Sabah and Sarawak, to the mosques and mysticism of the Sultanate of Brunei, Borneo is a mesmerizing mix of cultures, endangered animals, tropical rainforest and carnivorous plants.
This new edition of Borneo provides the most comprehensive information available on the island, from its ethnographic and natural history, to accommodation and tours.
