4.0 out of 5 stars Good detailed guide to Borneo 29 Jan 2009
Having already been to Borneo, we bought this guide for our nephew who is going there this summer. We looked at a few specific reports on areas that we had enjoyed as we knew our own opinions(!)and found the reports to be accurate and updated from the time that we were there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful Guide to Borneo 22 July 2010
We are planning a 'DIY' trip to Borneo, and this useful guide has given us the confidence to organise it ourselves, without relying on a travel agent.
The book is divided into geographical sections with useful web addresses and hotel details. We particularly like the 'getting there and away' section to help with planning transfers from travel hubs to accomodation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Covers a wide variety of areas 21 July 2010
By Kirsty
This book seems to be good, albeit recently discovering I need to complete a dive course before enjoy all that Borneo has to offer. I'm sure when the time comes to visit the island the book will come in very handy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Borneo Guide book 28 Nov 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Well written and very good illustrations, comprehensive coverage and I preferred this to the other two brands. I wish I had had this when I visited Borneo in 2010. It is helping me with my planning my next visit to Kalimantan and specifically the rain forest
