An expanded and fully updated edition of the successful The 100 Best Birdwatching Sites in Southeast Asia. This lavishly illustrated guide describes the 125 best sites for viewing both common and rare species in Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, The Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Timor-Leste and Vietnam.
Alongside a map of the area, detailed descriptions of each site cover the type of terrain and specific spots at which certain species are likely to be encountered. Other sections cover access and possible accommodation, as well as important indicators to conservation issues. A fact file for each site lists the nearest town; the type of habitat; key lowland, montane and winter species to be seen as well as other wildlife specialities, and the best time to visit. The book is edited by Yong Ding Li and Low Bing Wen who have brought together a team of contributors, each with in-depth experience of the sites presented.
