Malaysia

DESTINATION

Located near the Equator between the Indian Ocean and the South China Sea, Malaysia is comprised of two discontiguous regions: the southern portion of the Malay Peninsula and the northwest portion of the island of Borneo (known as East Malaysia). Malaysia’s climate is temperate with frequent rains and high humidity. Average temperatures range from 21- 33 Celsius throughout the year with an annual average of 2,000 – 2,500 millimeters of rainfall. Approximately 65% of Malaysia’s territory is covered by jungle. These lush habitats are home to over 1,500 different species of flora, fauna (tigers, birds, etc.), rare butterflies and insects. The Malaysian Peninsula is located in the path of the strategically important “Maritime Silk Road” linking India and China. Since time immemorial, traders have plied their sailboats up and down Malaysia’s coastal waters. The origins of modern-day Malaysia can be traced to the Malacca Sultanate, which was established towards the end of the 14th century. The Sultanate flourished as a trading nation, drawing the attention of the major European powers of the day who were eager to expand their presence into Asia. In 1511, Malaysia was occupied by Portugal and remained under Portuguese rule for roughly 130 years. The nation was later subjected to Dutch, British and then Japanese rule before attaining independence on August 31, 1957. The country’s official religion is Islam. Its official language is Malaysian. Through its “Bumiputra Policy”, which affords preferential status to indigenous peoples as well as those of ethnic Malay descent (who tend to enjoy a lower social standing in Malaysia), the nation has managed to build a balanced, ethnically and culturally diverse society. In recent years, Malaysia has been striving to achieve a level of development commensurate with that of other advanced countries around the world in all facets of economic and civic life.
