The travel experts at Frommer's are proud to unveil a brand-new first edition that takes you through the best of 10 countries -- with all the practical information, late-breaking bargains, cultural insights, and user-friendly maps that have long been hallmarks of our series.

Southeast Asia is a diverse region of ancient temples, powdery beaches, teeming business centers, and fabulous food. And while the countries of Southeast Asia have recently experienced economic hardship, for the savvy traveler this means that airfares and tour package prices are at an all-time low. It's the perfect time to explore this region, and Frommer's has put together the perfect guide to take you there. This handy volume comes complete with etiquette tips and cultural insights; advice for business travelers; full practical details on planning your trip and getting around; language glossaries; and dozens of detailed maps.

In Singapore and Malaysia, we'll show you monks, mosques, and a multicultural nightlife. In Thailand, we'll pull back the curtain on Bangkok's notorious (and fascinating) underbelly; visit Phuket's beach resorts; and explore the north's tribal areas. In Brunei, we'll follow the trail of the Sultan, one of the world's richest men. In Bali, we'll check out the island's world-class resorts and introduce you to the stellar arts scene -- from gamelan performances to shadow puppet plays to the famed Kecak ("monkey dance").

In Vietnam, we'll explore the thriving expat nightlife in Ho Chi Minh City (once Saigon), and journey by boat into the Mekong Delta, past rice paddies and riverside pagodas. In rugged Laos, we'll travel to the ancient capital of Luang Prabang, as well as the sacredlimestone caves of Pak Ou, studded with thousands of antiquated Buddha statues. We'll recommend the best Philippine beaches, dive sites, and rainforest treks. Finally, in Hong Kong, we'll tell you where to find the best shopping streets, dim sum joints, and the world's largest seated Buddha -- then whisk you over for a quick gambling weekend in Macau.
