Really informative and appealing book. Planned our three week trip using this. Preferred it to lonely planet as I found it more attractive and user friendly.

Good local tips and recommendations. Have bought rough guides book for future trips, would highly recommend.

A readable and informative guide

Reviewed on June 12, 2018
Paperback | Verified

This 624-page book - the 9th printed edition of June 2018 - is an interesting and readable (the two are not always found together) guide to Malaysia, along with independent Singapore and neighbouring Brunei.

Unlike many guides, this is not a glossy booklet dotted with colourful photographs to make it look superficially attractive, but a (literally) rough guide in terms of comparative paper finishes, but well-designed and presented, with readable text, useful maps, and (well-chosen) photographs only where space allows. The excellent design and layout means that you don’t need unnecessary spot illustrations to break up column after column of small-printed data.

The Contents are
P004: Introduction (Where to go, when to go, what to see, etc.)
P026: Basics (travel, transport, accommodation, food & drink, health, culture & etiquette, and other important stuff for visitors)

The Guide:
P060: Kuala Lumpur and around
P114: The west coast
P186: The interior
P216: The east coast
P266: The south
P312: Sarawak
P386: Sabah
P450: Brunei
P472: Singapore

P552: Contexts (articles on local culture - history, peoples, religion, wildlife, etc.)
P591: Language
P601: Glossary
P603: Index
