Format: Paperback
I just purchased this book in anticipation of a trip to Malaysia....so my review is written without having yet been on the trip.
However, this book lacks some basic information on Malaysia that I expect in a travel guide in order to plan a trip, for example, more fleshed out information on safety, health, exercise (and more) that is usually found in Frommer's guides and is found in the section on Singapore.
The *ONE* map of Kuala Lumpur is inadequate to even find the things mentioned in the accompanying text.
And when trying to figure out what to do with a few extra days from Kuala Lumpur, there is no information on how to get to the sites suggested, nor how long it takes! No web sites or email addresses listed for the outfitters mentioned - perhaps they don't exist, but I doubt it.
There were other inadequacies I noted in the section on Malaysia as well, but these suffice as examples of why I find this book of poor quality compared to most Frommer's books.
For the first time ever, I have to say I am very disappointed in a Frommer's guide.

I just spent a month on business in Singapore and couldn't have made it without this book. Everything was right on, from restaurant reviews to prices for hotels. Jennifer has a great sense of humor and is right on with her recommendations and insights. I travel a lot and will buy Frommers from now on.

This book has too much info on Singapore and none on Borneo July 7 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Frommer's info is well-written and clear but 228 out of 299 pages deal only with Singapore and this book has no information at all about Sarawak and Sabah, the best places in Malaysia in my opinion.The info on Taman Negara Park and it's activities, such as rafting were scanty and there was no info on the islands of the eastern peninsula.

Good for Singapore, Not for Malaysia Jan. 28 2008
By R. C Sherman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Other reviews have mentioned that Malaysia (especially Borneo) is given short shrift. I agree. The Singapore section is helpful, however. In planning our trip we relied on Lonely Planet more for peninsular Malaysia and Borneo.

Should be named SINGAPORE & malaysia Nov. 6 2007
By Doyice J. Cotten - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was very disappointed in this book. Frommer's guidebooks are usually pretty dependable, but this one is the exception. Planning to go to Malaysia, I purchased the book and it has only a brief (about 100 pages) on the entire country of Malaysia. Have to buy another book. The Singapore section seems ok for someone going there.

Frommer was very deceptive. If it were an automobile, they would have to issue a recall!

Incredibly useful for Singapore Feb. 20 2009
By Suzanne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Living in Singapore, we have a collection of guides for visitors to use and most seem to find this by far the most useful. It's engagingly written and covers a wide choice of hotels, places to eat and things to see and do. As others have said, Singapore is covered in more detail than Malaysia, but we find that suits our needs, since most of our visitors aren't planning to visit Malaysia for more than a couple of days.
