Waterfalls of Malaysia coffee table book
Twenty-five years ago, in 1989, the book "Waterfalls of Malaysia" was published. It contained descriptions of, and directions to 114 waterfalls in Peninsular and East Malaysia. A long time out of stock and never reprinted.
Now a new, glossy, coffee table book has been published "Paradise Malaysia Waterfalls". A different concept, no descriptions and directions, but a mixture of waterfall photographs and waterfall paintings. Official launch will take place soon.

We have changed the database so that now the waterfalls in the parks are counted separately, but only if they belong to different rivers.
