The first dedicated English-language guidebook to an emergent and largely unspoiled ecotourist destination otherwise overlooked by the travel publishing industry. Peaceful and politically stable, Suriname is one of the world's five most thinly populated countries. Its Caribbean coastline is famed for its peerless turtle-watching opportunities, while the interior is swathed by a vast tract of pristine Amazonian rainforest rich in wildlife and accessible only by air or along the tropical waterways that incise the interior. Author Emma Thomson introduces travellers not only to the World Heritage Sites of Brussels' Grand Place or Bruges' romantic canals but also to snug spots, like the bewitched village of Laarne and Geraardsbergen, the real home of Manneken-Pis., and the thrilling opportunities for exploration afforded by the Upper Suriname River and elsewhere in the jungle-swathed interior.
