From the tea-growing hills to the misty mountains of the peninsula’s heartland and the lush jungles of Borneo, Malaysia is a land of contrasts. Alongside these unspoilt natural areas, ultra-modern cities have sprung up that have nothing to envy of Western metropolises. The arrival of modernity has not altered the attachment of Malaysians to their age-old traditions.
The population of this small Southeast Asian country is a mosaic of cultures, young and mixed, with influences from all over the continent.
With 32 million inhabitants and a dynamic country, Malaysia has managed to jump on the development bandwagon and enter the 21st century while preserving its rich culture.
