Borneo's biodiversity is among the richest in the world.The first guide to focus on Malaysian Borneo and Brunei, this book gives full details on where and how to see the island's colourful flora and fauna. Tropical rainforest and rivers cover over 70% of Malaysian Borneo, and this lush habitat is home to hundreds of unique species, from the jelly green snake and bearded pig to the proboscis monkey. Trek through one of the region's national parks or catch a glimpse of an orang-utan. Traditional rural lifestyles, tribal influences and ethnic variety also offer the visitor a rewarding cultural experience; take part in island festivities, spend the night in a longhouse or shop in the bustling markets. Borneo can provide for adventure travellers, divers and even sunbathers. Over 27,000 UK visitors travelled to Borneo in 2007, up 10% on the previous year.
