I can't believe we're going to Asia, help!

So I've never been further east than Jordan. Now my husband has booked a summer trip for us to Malaysia for 16 days. After some initial research, I really want to add Thailand. The shelves at the bookstore are packed with Thailand guidebooks and only 4 books on Malaysia. Questions-

1. A guidebook recommendation for Malaysia? (Would love for it to include Thailand but that looks like wishful thinking).

2. Best way to travel between the countries?

3. Recommended top spots to visit? We love nature, history, walks and of course food. I'm imaging elephant rides, jungles, turquoise water, orangutans.

4. Which is less expensive destinations? (We use u.s dollars).

Apologies if I sound stupid. I'm just starting my research. I didn't even know these two countries were located next to each other:)
