The Bradt guide to Borneo is the only guide dedicated to Sabah, Sarawak and Brunei. In this new edition from expert author Tamara Thiessen, a full update has been undertaken, with particular attention paid to ensuring all practical information in the guide is up-to-date. Also revised are the deforestation and conservation sections, along with government and politics in light of changes in the national (Malaysian/Brunei) and state (Sabah, Sarawak) situation. Maps have been rechecked and updated where required, and new 'expert voices' comment boxes have been added. Also included is fully updated insider information for touring the island including regional capitals, rural outposts and National Parks. Straddling the Equator and swept by four seas and several straits, Borneo retains much of its mesmerizing aura of a remote Southeast Asian island of headhunters and wild jungle adventure. Borneo is the only island in the world to house states and a country belonging to three different nations- the East Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak, Indonesian Kalimantan and the oil-rich sultanate of Brunei. This guide is dedicated to Brunei and the Malaysian states.
