Publisher Comments:

Bringing together for the first time all of the birding sites in Asia, this handy guide advises new and frequent visitors to the continent on where to go for the best birdwatching. From Turkey to Thailand and India to Indonesia, the book contains the latest birding information and deals with over 250 sites in detail and many more in passing. It directs the reader quickly to sites containing the birds he or she wants to see and tells which countries support the best cross-sections. Strategic information concerning when to go, how many sites to visit, how to get there, and how much time to spend is presented in a straightforward, easy-to-use format. Over one hundred maps and fifty line drawings enliven the text.

Following a chapter on how to use the book, there is an introduction to the continent and its birds. The book then focuses on the countries, archipelagos, and islands. General introductions to each country are followed by site details, which include bird lists, a list of other wildlife present, if applicable, and the latest information on where to look for the best birds.
