Malaysia info

Malaysia is one of the most pleasant, hassle-free countries to visit in South-East Asia. Several decades of sustained economic growth and political stability have made it one of the most buoyant and wealthy countries in the region, and although political power (Malay) and economic clout (Chinese) are still traditionally divided along racial lines, Malaysia has moved towards a pluralist culture based on a vibrant and interesting fusion of Malay, Chinese, Indian and indigenous cultures and customs. Malaysiaís profusion of islands off the coast offers some of the world's most secluded and picture-perfect hideaways. The beaches are paradise for the visitor, and there is often the opportunity to spot tropical wildlife near or even on the beach. Emerald Bay, on a tiny, privately owned island off Malaysia's west coast, is often listed in the top ten world's best beaches. The bay is a perfect crescent shape, with soft golden sand and calm emerald-green water.
