Malaysia

Malaysia is located in Southeastern Asia, peninsula bordering Thailand and Indonesia, Brunei, and the South China Sea, south of Vietnam. Malaysia is one of the most pleasant, hassle-free countries to visit in Southeast Asia. It’s buoyant and wealthy, and has moved towards a pluralist culture based on a vibrant and interesting fusion of Malay, Chinese, Indian and indigenous cultures and customs. Malaysia, a middle-income country, transformed itself from a producer of raw materials into an emerging multi-sector economy.
