This is just a few reviews from happy Amazon buyers:
Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei are probably the most developed nations in Southeast Asia, and tourism is really a long-established company within the initial two. English is widely spoken and travel is simple. Much more than anywhere within the region, you could even get by with out a guidebook – local tourist offices are fairly great for info.
That said, in the event you do want a guide, this is most likely probably the most dependable 1 for sensible particulars. The 10th edition, published in January 2007, really appears to have been much more thoroughly updated than some previous ones, with some new attractions and accomodation choices added – unlike in particular other LP guides, where only costs are changed from edition to edition. Of course sensible particulars might change even by the time the book is published (keep in mind it was researched in early 2006), but in general these three nations are fairly stable and inflation is low. Certain, the odd errorous/outdated info did slip in, but is far outweighed by all of the helpful stuff.
The Lonely Planet can generally (even though not usually) be counted on to offer for solid info on travel destinations and this 1 does just that. It’s fairly well written and every thing is nicely laid out. I particularly enjoyed the historical overview at the beginning and also the section on the national psyche.
