About this book

From the steamy highlands and sapphire watered islands of Sabah and Sarawak, to the mesmerising mosques and mysticism of the Sultanate of Brunei, the island of Borneo is a wonder world of colourful tribal cultures, exotic rainforest creatures. Straddling the Equator, and swept in by various Seas and Straits, it is home to the orang-utan, long-nosed beer-bellied proboscis monkeys, and otherworldly carnivorous plants straight out of Lord of the Rings. The latest edition of the Bradt Travel Guide to Borneo provides fully updated insider information for touring the island including regional capitals, rural outposts and National Parks.

Tamara Thiessen is a freelance journalist and photographer, specializing in travel and culture. She has a Masters Degree in Journalism and 20 years international reporting experience in print and broadcast media. Based loosely between Australia and France, Malaysia has been her mid-way home since the late 1990s. The publications she writes for are as globetrotting as herself: newspapers in Australia, Asia and the United States; in-flight magazines in Brussels, Bangkok, Korea and Saudi Arabia; travel and lifestyle magazines in Hong Kong, London and Dubai; and American hotel and hospitality industry titles. She loves Borneo as much as her home island of Tasmania.
