Where to see Asian wildlife other than India?

My last 3 travels have taken me to africa, but this time my wife insist that we try another place. We have friends in Singapore, so we would propably start there.
I know that compared to Africa the wildlife will be much more difficult to see, but are there any National Parks in Malaysia, Indonesia etc. that is worth a visit. I know india have some beautiful parks, but I don´t think we would go there. The wildlife that I would find interesting is the big mammals like elephants, tiger,leopard,monkeys, orangutang.

There are game parks in Sri Lanka where you can see elephants, monkeys and leopards - easy flight from Singapore. There are many wildlife sanctuaries in Malaysia where animals can be viewed - someone else will have to chime in on this though as we have not done this there.

You might go to Sabah (Malaysian Borneo). The Danum Valley is the best place to see orangutans in the wild. Take a look at the Borneo Rainforest Lodge.

Cokesmith has done a lot of travel in Asia and he is very interested in wildlife. You should take a look at some of his reports:
