Forget those cookie-cutter travel leaflets… read this book instead! From spotting lumbering greenback turtles in the postcard-perfect Perhentians, to being scared stiff by a Japanese goddess in seductive Lang Tengah, to getting acquainted with a cheeky kitten-raping monkey in mythical Langkawi, to finding Nemo and his dad in dazzling Selingan… exotic Malaysian islands present an assortment of mind-blowing experience for the diver, snorkeler, sunbather and beachcomber – from the good, to the bad and to the finest. Knee-slapping, heart-warming and occasionally hair-raising (think lunatic bus drivers, ghosts and snakes), this collection of 30 absolutely dripping-with-local-color tales, as narrated by adventurers who have been there and seen it all, is bound to pack a wallop to the reader’s imagination.

Oct 23, 2008"We deserve the truth" I have visited quite a few islands in Malaysia and my choice of resorts had always been the result of word-of-mouth, which often comes to me in bits and pieces. This guide is valuable to me for two simple reasons: the book speaks from true experience without hype and misleading facts; it also allows me to choose the best island destinations, which my family and I deserve.
Oct 4, 2008"A unique sort of travel guide" Instead of giving you dry facts like other guidebooks do, the stories in this book offer lively reports of Malaysian resort spots based on firsthand experiences. Because of the nature of the book, what’s written in it may be different from what you feel. In fact, you may not agree with anything the writers say since they all wrote from their hearts. But what I can tell you for sure is that this book WILL make you want to go to Malaysia to see if the writers are telling the truth.
Sep 9, 2008"Really good read, with excellent insider's tips" I will use this partly as a guide for my next trip to asia and the malaysian islands ...
Mar 10, 2008"Personal insights exposed..." Malaysian Islands: the Good, the Bad and the Finest is a fun, personal tour through the, well, Malaysian Islands. Packed with humour, paranoia and personal insights, it goes beyond the usual cut and dried information offered in travel guides and gets straight to the questions that every traveller asks about a foreign place including: 'How prudish are the people?', 'How do I stay out of jail?' and 'Will I get eaten by a man-eating shark?'
