Malaysia is on the Malay Peninsula in southeast Asia. The nation also includes Sabah and Sarawak on the island of Borneo to the east. Its area slightly exceeds that of New Mexico. Most of Malaysia is covered by forest, with a mountain range running the length of the peninsula. Extensive forests provide ebony, sandalwood, teak, and other wood.
Malaysia offers its visitors numerous holiday choices, from exploring high-tech KL, relaxing on one of its sandy beaches or meeting the tribal villagers of Sabah in Borneo. Peninsular Malaysia is the more developed of the country’s two regions and is home to the country’s most popular beach Resorts – Penang and Langkawi – as well as the ever-developing city of Kuala Lumpur. East Malaysia occupies the northern segment of Borneo and it is famously known for its resident orang-utans and lush rainforests.
