There's a lot of useful information in this book, but you can't go by the specifics. Everything was about double the price than what the book quoted. Travel information was out of date. There are only two buses (not four) a day from Miri, long distance bus station to Kuala Belait, 7.30am and 3.30pm which was of no use to me arriving at 9.30am (plenty of time for the non-existent 10:30am bus) and needing to get to Kuala Belait before car rental place closed at 4pm. I couldn't find anywhere in the book the date it was published which would have been useful.

I would wait for a newer version to come out. It's quite a heavy book to carry around and even after 2 weeks I found the layout difficult to navigate. For example it will guide you through a town in text going from west to east but then there either isn't a map or it's quite a few pages back.

Some guidance would also be useful for people driving, places to park etc. The book is aimed at people on foot which would actually be quite difficult in places like Bandar Seri Begawan as some of the places are really quite far out the way. Istana is one example.

This book gave a good general overview of the places covered but I wanted more specific information on places, such as how safe they were for a single female traveller. A good introduction though!

Could not have asked for anything more complete about the places we shall shortly be visiting, transport, opening times, location, hotels, eating out, background knowledge. Absolutely everything seems to be included and up-to-date. It will definitely be travelling with me and I shall be getting a Rough Guide to other parts of the world as and when.
