Footprint Borneo

Front Cover
The vast, jungle-covered island of Borneo, the third largest in the world, has always held a fascination for Western travellers. This was where head-hunters ran wild and which, according to romantic myth, was rich in gold and diamonds. Today's attractions are of a different kind: trekking through pristine national parks; whitewater rafting on tropical rivers; and some of the very best dive sites in the world. This new addition to the acclaimed Footprint stable is up-to-date and packed with information and recommendations of where to stay and eat; from native longhouses to six –star hotels. Places to visit and how to get around, as well as a comprehensive background section to help you understand the island's rich and diverse culture.

About the author (2006)

1804-1859

Joshua Eliot first set foot in Singapore as a child, but became seriously interested in things Asian when he studied at the School of Oriental & African Studies in London. Since then events have taken him back to the region two or three times a year, sometimes for long periods. He has worked at the University of Singapore, written children's books and given radio broadcasts and lectured on cruise liners.
